Video anyone? [Smile] Rookie schmoo here just trying to learn the track. I know you pros don't like to share your secrets but share the love. [Wink]

The tranny in the #49 gave up on me and I couldn't make it. Looks like I missed a good one.

If you want to see how NOT to drive you'll enjoy these videos of mine from Saturday's race. They are outstanding examples of an inability to keep one's foot on the floor in a race car. (aka complete lack of talent). The second clip also has a good demonstration of braking too late in 8 followed up by an outstanding gearshifting blunder.
As I was pushing Craig J down the front I did notice he had a camera pointing at me. Maybe he could post his video and we'd have a 360 degree shot for a few laps.

Thanks Matt, those are great!

Thanks Kent, Louie is already working his magic in the car. I should be running again by this Friday.

I cannot log into the SW Division web site to ask why results are not up on mylaps from last weekend (or anywhere for that matter). Am I missing something?

Divisional Administrator for Timing and Scoring: Reb Folbre Phone: (940) 682-4382

As your customer service rep for T&S, Reb needs to hear about the lack of timely posting of results to the SOWDiv website and MyLaps. TWS has internet access, so the results can be posted to My:aps and sent to the webmaster at the same time they are made official, like Zack and Diane do for the Houston Region races.

I understand that the chief of timing for this event had a family medical emergency... might be contributing to the delay in posting results.

Just a little analysis comparing this year with last year.
2009: At least 50% of people set their fastest lap on lap 1 or 2. Temperature was 74F
2008: At least 50% of people set their fastest lap AFTER lap 4. Temperature was 44F

In 2009: The top 10 qualifiers in 2009 set their fast lap on the first 2 laps. Three did it on their first lap! Fast time was: 2:01.2
In 2008: From poll to 10th place, the fastest laps occurred on lap: 8, 6, 2, 2, 7, 8, 2, 7, 1 and 2. Fast time was: 1:59.4
