The road to this meet was one that was filled with a lot of doubt. A week prior to the meet the car showed signs of overheating. This had me thinking if it was a wise idea to take part in the upcoming meet.
Having missed the April meet however I was feeling the itch to race and with encouragment from my teammates I gave in and decided to race. I made some adjustments to the car to address the heating issue with the help of my brother (crew cheif) and headed out.
Day one started out with the usual scramble to get registered and scrutineered, that however was quickly handled by my teammates(thanks guys) and so I could now focus on the task at hand qualifying in a good position.
At the close of qualifying I was fourth place on the grid and ready to go. The first race did not go all that well for me but I was just enjoying being out on the track. The rains came and seeing that this event was a two day event, with the following day carrying more spectator support I decided to preserve the car for the following day.
Day two had more to offer. Our race was pretty early on the schedule which is good as it ment no rain. Then came the moment of truth; Because I finished 10th place the day before means I would be starting in 10th place on day two. This did not bother me as I was very focused. I had a game plan and I was going to stick to it. The race it self was exciting. Had a couple of close calls, near passes but all in all a good race.
When the smoke cleared and the times checked I ended up with first place as I stuck to the game plan and did not break out of my class.
Looking forward to August.....
