Yeah - finally!

Even a blind squirrel finally gets an acorn once in a while.  :hugegrin:

Now I gotta watch for the dreaded white and blue in my mirrors

Gonna be a long year for sure.

 

So what is the over under on the following - Me getting my Majors/HST win at the age of 60, or Danica beating me to it and getting her first Majors/HST win???

I know I know, both are really 100:1 long shots, but we can both dream, cant we?

Thanks guys! Even though it was just a regional, Jeffy, Cory, Jamie, and Acosta did not make it easy. Acosta couldn't really do anything against the four of us, but he was there the whole time. From the opening laps it was a wheel to wheel battle, all the way to the last lap. Nobody touched each other and it was a great race. I was kind of just sitting in line for most of the race, not being too aggressive until Jack came on the radio and said 10 minutes to go. Started making some moves and lead the last couple laps but was going back and forth with Jeffy the whole time. Last lap, I was a sitting duck coming out of T16 and Jamie went off track behind Jeffy, so he didn't have any help to go around me. I thought for sure I was going to be "that close" again, but it finally worked out.

 

Unfortunately, something happened when I put my sim cards on Jamie's MacBook, and Idk what happened, but my gopros said memory full (even with no files on it) and neither of them recorded.

 

Feels good to finally get one! But, you will probably get the Hoosier Super Tour win before I do Danny, because I am just trying to be a regional hero this year. :D

Nice Job John, a win is a win, no need to downplay them.  I count them all because in this class there is always a worthy adversary on the track with you at any race.

Danica, full credit for the win and more credit your way for backing down from Super Tour because funds re-coupe required. :bigsquaregrin:

I have something to say about Alex Acosta too. Even though he pulled a very reckless move, taking me out in T1 of Race 1, which could have ended worse than it did, he earned a good amount of respect from me this weekend.  Nobody, and I mean nobody was happy with him for that move which caused damage to a couple competitors, but I don't think anyone was more unhappy with him, than himself (except for maybe my mom lol).  He was handed a probation for it, which he told the stewards to give them any punishment they feel is necessary and he will take it. He recognized it was 100% his fault and he wants to learn from it.

 

He showed me his video because he wanted to watch it too, and I think it was more telling of how he felt than any apology could be.  Right after he hit me, he pulled over into the grass on the exit of Turn 1, slowed down, and let everyone pass him.  You can tell he was very upset by it.  He was hitting himself in the helmet and hitting the wheel the entire lap, cussing at himself, and even came in on the first lap and just wanted to know I was alright.  Yes, he gave Jack a check to replace the quarter panel (for our third time in 6 months), but I think seeing how he felt in the car meant more to me than him writing a check. He handled it well and I hope he learns from it. He raced clean and hard in the second race, so hopefully it will continue to get better from here on out.

Great to hear how it went with Alex, we all know he's a good dude that means well, and mistakes happen. 

 

Also, congrats again on the win, in our region, any win is big with the hot shoes we have down here; racing in the CFR is awesome, and any win is very rewarding with the depth of our fields. Good work man, I really wish I had been there to make the win a bit harder for you.  :toast:

Cory drove himself off in T16, and it sounded like the diff let go, but he had no drive at all

I  can tell you what happened when you put your card in my computer; I erased it.. No way am I going to watch your highlight real over and over.

He followed me off of the track and his battery bounced all over the trunk shutting the motor down. My battery prep was better than his.

Jack I don't like losing but rest assured nobody outside of John's own family was happier about his win then I was. I am just busting his balls about the link.. He beat 4 very good cars and earned the win; no doubt. This was a popular win and there are a lot of people very happy for him as a driver and for you and Robin for helping him.
