    It was great to race with James. We know each otherís style and weíve raced together but not beside each other open wheel.. thereís lots of trust and respect. Itís not going to last until he learns his car and changes a few things. James will have fights for podiums.

    My heart goes to Kevin and Jeff, racing cars can test us. Iím sure they will figure it out.

    Meh...not so bad for me...got some laps in.
    Went out for practice and got a flat...a first for me, right at the red flag. Came back in and realized it was a broken valve stem. Powersports Garage fixed me up right away and I was out for the last few laps of that session.
    Those couple laps were bliss...nice to have a car with a modern suspension and real steering.
    I'm going to blame my kid for the valve...he was trying to check tire pressures with a compression tester. Pretty sure he reefed on something.


    Gridding for the race, my AIM dash started acting all weird...cycling on and off.
    I did a couple laps of the race, but it started missing at WOT.
    Went in and out of the paddock trying to debug it...but couldn't pin it down.
    Was hoping it was a weak battery...but turns out its not that.
    Going to retrace any wires I monkeyed with...pretty sure its electrical.

    Was surprised that I could keep pace with some of the Mazdas...even with zero skillz in a F1600.

    Novice triangle...because I'm really spazzy with the left foot braking and clutchless shifts + street radials + no downforce

    Great turnout of cars last night. 15 for the first night is awesome. Lots of mechanical issues tho. I think less than 10 cars made the finish. Doesnít sound like any were real serious tho. Kinda sad to not see any Legend cars. Get a couple of them out and a few of the other guys, and 20+ cars is insight. Thereís 6-7 cars in the 2:13-2:17 range. Iím thinking weíll be in that same range too once we get things sorted out. Should be lots of good racing.

    Jeff...I respect your enthusiasm despite being in the paddock all evening.
    Glad I wasn't the only one chasing gremlins.

    Lol at spazzy with no clutch. I'm still using the clutch I'm going to try next time not to. Race was not the time to try and practice was a bust.

    To be honest, I did it last season and it works.. so I like his style lol

    Basically, if you start on the dirty side, you can confuse everyone just by making sure you slip in in front of the driver next to you even though youíre suppose the tuck behind him. Itís racing to me but rules of drivers meeting
