I thought it was pretty cool even though they were smack-talking you the entire time they still took a minute out of the show to shake your hand. x2, thank you for your service

PS .. not sure what your driving ed credentials are - so don't take this the wrong way. It looked to me like you were mashing the throttle out of a couple of the turns and fighting the car. smooothly squeeeeeze the throttle such that it's still floored by the apex and you can get it on sooner without the back end fighting. smooth with the inputs .. you probably already know that, maybe just the adrenaline thing and trying to push it 11/10 which is easy to do if you're trying to catch up late. I also noticed what you said about the start, yeah .. another lap or two you'd have got him.
