Great race between the top 5. Harry and Backus checked out at first, but then Tom Sager, Tom Kraft, and Jared Igou reeled them back in. They seemed to be swapping spots all the time, but it appeared to always be clean.

Congrats to Tom Kraft.

The finishing order from memory:

Kraft
Backus
Manning
Sager
Igou
(Can't remember the rest)

Sorry if I flipped the order on anyone. Wish I was out there mixing it up with everyone.

Harry and I swapped the lead about 1/3rd of the way through the race. While in the lead I got totally hosed by an AS mustang that hung me out between 4 and 5 and Kraft and Harry went by inside.

Kraft and I got Harry up the front straight with 3 or 4 to go. I had a move or two for Tom on the last lap, but decided the better of it and settled for second.

Good racing, and most of the same crew will be out in two weeks to go at it again.

I went 23.4. I think Kraft went .6, Sager .8 and Harry 24.0.

It was a fun race. I was playing the patience game but had some brain fade during a couple laps near the middle of the race. Will blame that on a coating of rust that formed on the driver over the winter. Also had more then my share of traffic problems (although everybody else probably feels the same way). Tom K drove very well and was piloting a rocket out there. We'll have to look for the Nitrous bottle or other oxygen source at the next one. I don't think we saw Harry's best on Sunday. I think he'll have his cape on for the next one and might also correct his alignment problem. His car seemed to pull to the right on the front straight. Jarrod was almost my best friend out there. He gave me some help on the back straightaway, but unfortunately it was at the end of the straight and wasn't that helpful. We'll work on the hand signals for the next one. Backus disagrees with the 1.6 cars getting a weight reduction so he ran with a little extra. He's starting his own movement to equalize the weight of the cars. He calls it P.O.L. (plain old lead). Chapter 2 should be a lot of fun in a couple weeks.

I'm sure there was more fun in the seat all tho it was one of the very best races in a long while from T2. [Smile] Looking forward to the next race at the Farm. I'll bet the Coello boys were watching & wishing they still had a car or two. [Wink]
