On the Pepperoni Bros. Facebook page we have a grainy iPad video of the Flashpoint incident taken from about the 3 -1/2, Steve did what he could with it but it was a long ways away.

  That's sad to see. all that time,money and work. But well built and bad Acura car to bring Bob thru safely. I always liked Flashpoint's front wing.

  Hope Bob will be back.

  Good luck Bob.  JL222 and team
