Well time for a recap...lets see. Justin had shock troubles that were mostly sorted by day two. I predict Preston on top next year. Lee had that hodge podge tire setup with Toyos up front. Andres learned the fine art of controlled aggression over the summer. And I learned about lack of battery voltage and how it affects ABS and power steering...and the meaning of too much toe out lol.

Fun time and a fun group.

Lee drove well on day 1 and we never recovered lol. If not for the electrical issues and the alignment I think a Mazda3 might have taken the win. and if Preston had no mechanical issues on day one he would have won. Bench racing.

Lots of fun was had. the car is a great chassis and fit everything I needed to compete and drive with two people 1000+ each way in "comfort".

Yeah, I might have to get some of those bright neon Nascar numbers sometime, I like the look. Colin really could use them, because the dark color on dark color thing isn't really working.
Thanks Adam, you scared me with your first run, I heard your time when I was to start my first run...
