Stealing Pearson's Thunder

I had a horrible weekend at the Putnam Park race that included a DNF (while running in 3rd) as a result of a $80 part going in the crapper and getting beat by Luna. (in the rain). I'll let you fools laugh and jab but there are legitimate reasons it happened.

I can admit his only because it takes satisfaction away from Pearson by saying it first.

The floor is now open:

Were you 3rd to the guys that finished the race first and second when you went out?

I may be at BeaveRun on Saturday...not Sunday...I got tickets to the Dover (Nascar) race before they made BeaveRun a joint event. I'd much rather watch an AI race than a Nascar race, but I committed to taking a friend that's never been to a race before. Should just sell the tickets, come out to BeaveRun and use the $84 on a nice dinner and some adult beverages and go home with money in my pocket.

It was a very well executed, text book spin. I don't know if John got it on film or not. I guess time will tell. I can't rib you on this though Tone, because the same place got me in lap 1. To all of you OH/IN guys, I had a great time racing with all of you. It was amazing how close the bulk of the AI field was in the Sunday qualifing. If it hadn't rained we would have had a great race on Sunday
