But will I be fast in it? Or am I better off in my 1.6? That's the question :) Also need to see if I can fit myself in the seat..

So how do I finally get my checkered flag award for the forum? And bona fide SM award?

 

How did Sunday go? Johnny start any more wildfires?

What did you win? Buttonwilow?

NCRC does count, they owe you a sticker if you won that race.

 

No more fires, last race a guy blew up from 7 to 9. The bike were out next, they said, "no that's okay, somebody else can go"

So we went out and it was pretty hairy for a few laps. An open wheel guy spun off 8 on the 1st lap, something happened to him at the end too and they red flaggered it.

 

Randy Evens kept me honest most of race with Dion and Richard.

Sounds like I am owed a sticker! Although it would go on Ron's car anyways... But yes I won that race and would love to finally have a checkered flag on this forum. If I get one maybe I will hesitate from uploading some footage I have of a certain car taking the drifter line through Turn 11?  :bigsquaregrin:

Won NCRC or Buttonwillow?

(Nick and Dakota won BW)

 

I'd like to see it, did I drop tires and spin, I thought there was fluid down?

Won NCRC, not Buttonwillow. You were in first until the spin. It was a blue/yellow flag, never seen one in a race for 1st place before lol so I was surprised to see it. Looks like you had an ambitiously fast entry into 11, lifted to avoid going off, car started to rotate, rear tires hit the dirt and made it unsaveable. Looked like quite a ride! Also included a clip of the fire in case you guys were red flagged before you saw it.

Thanks for posting.

Yea, the corner working I think was waving that flag instead of the surface flag because I had seen it waved when the track was dirty.

I saw the flag and was expecting something.

I didn't lift, it's hard to see, my rear doesn't start to slid off into the dirt?

If I dropped I dropped, but It sure came around fast, maybe I hooked it.

I really don't think NCRC counts.
Don't you want to win because you earned it ?
(Technically yes, and the Majors in CO had 3 SM's entered this last weekend so maybe)

IDK, Nick doesn't come here, Nicks Dad wanted his flag, We didn't give him one and I haven't seen him. It was not meant to piss people off.

After chasing down a 300 yard gap I thought I earned it :)

 

But sure, guess I have to win the NASA Championships now...

 

And Happy Birthday!
