Does anyone know the results yet of Sundays Race when I left at 5:00 they still had not posted the results. I was an interesting weekend. but I am happy to report not a mark on my car all weekend, I even Raced with Quick Nip and did not even have a close call of hitting him.

You're welcome! Braking to miss you and the others braking cost me eight places by T7 (to the cars on the right who stayed on the gas). I had to work like the devil to make fourteen or fifteen passes by the end. I don't have video of your incident, but if I had to guess, I would bet you did six full 360's in about two seconds, the rate of rotation was downright impressive - as was your keeping it on the left..

Justin:
Great racing with you. As it turned out, we both got shuffled and had some fun passing opportunities as a result. When I saw you in my mirror, it took me a moment to realize that you'd "survived" the whirling dirvish event!

Rick we had some pretty good really close side by side through a few turns there. That was awesome! I didn't realize you were working your way through as well until later on when you were jumping on all the opportunities I took on other guys. great racing.

I won on Saturday and John Guthrie won on Sunday. Both 1.6 if that matters, the na 1.8 was equally as competitive.

Justin you and I almost hit when you were passing in turn 9 went two off there to avoid you, not a problem, I know you were trying to get back to the front. Trust me contact was the last thing I wanted.

I also tried to bump draft you going down the back but since that was the first time I have done it to someone else other than some one doing it to me, i realize i did not give you much of a bump, but its the thought that counts.

Sorry about that Frank. I was so focused on the red car infront of me, I didnt realize you were over there until I got to the apex of the turn. Thanks for avoiding though I would do the same for you or anyone else.

Congrats on the win Sunday John!

John I wish I could, I would have expected they could post it on line within 24 hrs. I did not stick around as they were reviewing a slew of Hollywood video in the trailer for who knows what.

One thing is for sure you cannot race without a camera. I was initially told I was disqualified for passing in the grass on Saturdays start, which I did not do. So Sunday I brought the video and proved I did not pass in the grass that I clearly never left the track. Seams odd to me that I would have to prove my innocents since they had no video of me in the grass.

NASA needs to man up and call compitors to the trailer and tell them that they are being DQ'd and give the competitor a chance to appeal, that decision before it is final IMHO this is where NASA misses the boat and SCCA has it down.

Also regardless of where the top 99 finished it was totaly uncompetitive once again! I made two seriously costly mistakes in spinning twice and had no problem running back through the field each time in a top prepaired 97. My last time through the gap to the first 99 would have had to be over over 10 seconds between a 99 and any of the top 3 all of which where 1.6's I beleive

Laptimes, especially Sunday, suggest otherwise.

Denny take a look at my fast lap from Sundays race vs. Price. So you are trying to say that I am 1.4 seconds a lap better driver that he is. That is ridiculous! He is every bit as fast and skilled as I am if not more. He just happens to be driving a 99.
