It was a great Nationals for the CBEI. We had a few mechanical problems along the lines of an alternator that blew (I'm blaming the rock that was found in the housing next to the burned windings). Thanks to a great amount of help that showed up from my local club (MAC
) and the most expensive car battery charger in history (a 2005 Nissan Titan running at ~2500 rpm between runs) with jumper cables to charge my spare battery we were able to finish all our runs on Tuesday. A quick run to Speedway motors in Lincoln got a replacement alternator and the car ran great the rest of the week.
Final results were:
1st in XPL
3rd and 6th in XP
5th in EM
Four drivers, three trophies, one class win for a jacket. I could not have dreamed of the results being this good even last week at this time.
I'll get some video's up when I get them from my co-driver.
