Great racing all weekend. The top 4 E3 cars all finished within a lap of each other.

We found that a tire doesn't hold air well when it has a massive hole in it! We had a nice class win brewing when the tire I flat spotted during my stint created the blowout and "spark show" late in the race. But a quick tire change by the crew kept us in 2nd, with the 3rd and 4th place cars only about 30 seconds behind.

And to top it all off, one of the tires on our RV blew out on the way home. Them damn tires!

Hey Rob- Man, from what the our crew says about the RJ teams tire change, it was like a NASCAR stop! Great Job!

Wish we didn't go down 2 laps at the start and have to overdrive the car to get caught up. The Lt rear w/ corded about half way around at the end of the race. Made for some "fun" drit track driving at the end for sure!

Good racing with you on Sunday as well. I have some great video...

I'd love to see some of the video. I meant to ask you about that. Our camera went kaput this weekend.
