spoiler warning doesn't work too well if you don't have returns after the title... or if people comment back in the first line.

Congrats Hooverspeed! Hard workin team! [yep]

We made it down this morning and got to catch up with a few folks. Awesome day and what a show!
Great racing but some serious sheet metal hurt in a few races, tho! [Eek!] All drivers ok last I heard. Have a great shot of Matt talking to Mark Pombo before his TDI race, but an incident severely changed the look of his car, later. Glad he's ok. Sat right next to them watching MX5 cup and I kept thinking I should know who they were! Chatted at Andrew's pit later. [blush]
Was good to get reacquainted with all those we could and put some new faces to the screen names here. Fun times.

There's an additional spoiler coming, I'll wait to see how it's officially announced. [Frown]

Charlie,

Andrews car was DQ'd for having the wrong camber bolt in the LF suspension. It was a mistake that should not have happened.

We had the toe adjustment slip on that corner and decided to replace the bolt so it would not slip again and we accidently put put the wrong bolt in. The big problem is Andrew and I were crewing our car since Rob was still on the road returning from the Barber Mustang race and since Andrew and I had never worked in that area before, we did not realize our error.

I would like to apologize to our sponsors, Mazda, SCCA, and our fellow competitors for creating the issue and forcing everyone to have to deal with it.

In my 20 years of driving and then Andrews 12 years of racing we have never been DQ'd and we are embarrassed that it happened now and will work hard to make sure it does not happen again.

--------------------
Thanks!

The MX-5 cup race was awesome to watch, and everybody helped me a ton with data. Thanks Roger and Andrew for the data and video help, and Todd for the video.

Congrats on the win Brad!!

I have found that media.vw.com is the best source.

Mark, what happened with your DNF? Like the rest of the series promotion, details are rather lacking.

I was in the chicane and watched it all unfold.

Mark,
It looked like you were making your move to the inside of turn 1 for 2nd place and carried enough speed to take you deep into 1 which carried you into the first place car. Looks like the 1st place car got a better run out of turn 2 so now you were sitting 2nd with the 3rd place car just off your left rear corner. Looks like he either moved underneath you and spun you directly into the concrete barrier or you moved to the outside(to line up for turn 4) but because he was inside your fender you spun.

Either way, after the aweful start you had, you had and AMAZING run from 8th? to the front. Wish more of the SM guys could have seen it, because you were just picking the guys off lap by lap. Hope you feel better because that hit looked pretty bad.

Kyle

On our way to watch the Spec race we saw the car on the hook. Took a picture, but I am not inclined to post those sorts of shots, unless Mark wants it.
By the looks of the car it was a HARD hit. We were in the paddock watching from afar when it happened. Hopin Mark is getting better, cage, belts and all are great but it had to hurt.
Missed the start but I heard he was methodically picking off the field.

I don't mind you posting a picture if you want. I spun the wheels on the start and went from first to eighth by the end of the front straight. I was spun between turns 3 and 4 two laps from the end. I was touched on the left rear bumber settin up for turn 4, a right hander while in second spot. It turned meinto the concrete wall. Pretty disappointing I really felt like I had the speed to win all weekend. I lost a lot of money and a lot of points, but oh well. I should have just stayed in third, I would be the points leader. Now I am in 15th.

We watched the whole VW race, Mark did a great job slicing through traffic.
Glad you are ok and at least you get a new car.

It was a shame Mark got taken out. He and I had a really good race (I won it). Together I think we showed how good Se Div spec miata is for driver development
