We had a fantastic weekend at Mid-Ohio. It started out with the usual concern over rain, but at least for SM the rain never came. it was mid 70's sunshine all weekend.
I had a pretty good weekend, not perfect but good, I ended up with a P6 and P8. Sunday. I was able to keep a more comparative pace, gave up a few spots as it was hard to keep the tires under the car. Running on older SM7's can be fast but they also give up later in the race. One of my goals was to bring the car home clean, and out side of a few bumps and bruises car was good.
I did apologize to Jordan Smart, for knocking him off track. With two laps to go on Sunday i tried to pass at the end of the back straight, and with my tires hot i just was not able to get it completely turned in and we touched he went off.
I did hold up and gave him that spot back as it was in the contingency and we finished P7 and P8.
At impound the steward came up to Jordan and I, I was thinking he was going to question us about contact, he said Oh no, i want you to pull your transmission and flywheel.
I got the unluck of the draw, Random P8.
Note to self, P8 is the random number for tech.
Lots of transmissions were pulled this weekend. The top 3 from Saturday, and at least 3 others from Sunday, i believe making it at least 6 trans pulled.
I know my box and the box i built for Adam Roberts were good to go. I did not hang around but i assume all was good in tech.
Lastly, i want to thank Ralph and his V2 crew for being there to help pull my transmission. I am just coming off of a hip replacement surgery, and it was a struggle as it is, I would have been in a pickle if it were not for those guys to help.
To my knowledge no man drama, there was some contact and carnage, but overall pretty clean respectful racing from my view.
