Summit Weekend

What a weekend!!

Thanks you first; Hoover, Amy, Jay and anyone else that helped with the cookout.

Henry Jones, thanks for the point by on the front stretch. I was laughing my a@@ off inside my car because you were waving and I couldn't catch you.

The Tone Family; you guys were more than gracious!

I qualified ahead of Tone on Sat. ooops that slipped

The results will be up soon on the AI site.

I will get a video up of my first off, what a ride!!! I watched the in car this morning and it was all a rookie mistake.

I qualified ahead of Tone Sat.

You forgot to mention the textbook perfect pass I made on you on the front straight! Basically I "put the hammer down" and "shut the door!" on John.

Below is just a sample of the cars that were behind John trying to lap him!!

I think that is a shot of Sat. qualifying, you were behind me.

You did set up the pass very well!!! I'll give you that one.

John thanks, the old car (and old man) do pretty good going straight................it is the stopping and sometimes turning that becomes interesting in these things. Anyone that saw me do the loop da loop several times understands that these dang things just do not want to turn. They are tought enough on dry pavement so you throw in a little dampness and D***. I may get a bill from Summit Point for the 50 pounds of mud still on and under and in my ride and me.

What fun! You guys are a blast to race with. Good stuff and Jay, great steaks.

I had the driest place in town ------ under the Chapel.

The 10 hour pull was worth it!! Thanks.

John, I think it was turn 2. Will have to ask Pantas ..... he said he had a great view. This was my first trip into Summit so the layout ain't yet burned into the brain. Came away with a best of 1:33 so I was happy with that being the first time in............Sunday race was going great until brake fade set in at the end of the front stretch. The access raod was looking mighty good for a second or two.

Great fun...................get Pantas to tell you about him and me down the front stretch.

Hey John I heard that you qualified ahead of me on Saturday by nearly 2 seconds?

I will have a Good Attitude about this even though Hoover was not the shining example of sportsmanship, good attitude and professionalism that he wants us (or me and my cronies) to be, but I will keep my happy attitude with me at all further events to make sure eveyone's life is a little better. Remember that a giving someone a hug will make everyone smile and a bit more happy. Hoover needs a lot of hugs.....

John, did you qualify ahead of me on saturday? What happened on sunday.

It was great to see everyone and I look forward to seeing you all again soon. Remember to smile and have a great attitude.

Brian (Happy Bastard) Tone.

Thanks for the picture John!! It will wash off!

I can tell you this, too many more events like there were on Saturday and my plans to enter the AI arena will slow down very quickly. I hope Saturday was a learning experience and that situations similar to that do not happen again.

I don't think you will see Saturday happen again. It was a good learning experience for everyone!

Henry went off the outside of T2 in all that water that had collected - I wish I had my video camera in the car - but look at the Anderson/Beaverun video and just substitute in Henry's car!!

I was chasing Henry into T-10 thinking I would pull out next to him on the front straight and we could drive down thru side-by-side during practice - kind of a kodak moment - two white w/blue stripe mustangs racing down the straight - but NOOOOO Henry comes off the corner and pulls away!!! YESIREE!!! he definitely had more torque than I did - it took me until 1/3 of the way down the front straight to catch him!!!!

Don't ket Henry fool you, that old car can scoot!!!

BTW - I qualified ahead of Mr. Happy Tone as well...
