 I had a great car all week , went to impound three days in a row but couldn't back it up. We had a few handling issues , wind , lots of power with a short wheel base , not the best course conditions , but it was a great week. Thanks to all of the SCTA who make this happen ,

Sorry to hear that but October is right around the corner. A few people also posted that the track wasn't all that well but that's racing. Two major projects got moved up a week at work and they asked me if I could reschedule my vacation time. Maybe at the World Finals I'll stop by your pit.

Comments . . .

That wasn't the same spin as on the other video we've seen.  You were much more creative on it.

Is Lee Kennedy now on your Christmas card list now that you've become good friends, meeting thruout the week?

What -- no balls?  Reach over and fire it up and drive over to the return road and then have your conversations.  Whattaya trying to hold up the meet?

That 3-mile looked rather challenging -- course 1?

Didn't seem to scare you enuf to try it again.  Sure is nice to have stiff suspension -- looks like the T-cup ride at Disneyland.

See you next year.

Someone had posted a few runs of this weeks speed week on youtube and your car came out. On the video you spun about 3 or 4 times and you almost gained control after every turn real nice driving. I'll bet its a scary feeling going 200+ backwards  shocked

Not if you're flat and there's nothing of consequence to hit.
