Fast course (thanks Brittney) kept the competition exciting.

Lots of new folks out there.

Congrats to... Mike- raw time (1st time), Rod- PAX (3rd time in a row) and Kaitlin for ladies (I've lost track)

I came to the harsh realization that though I haven't driven much over the last few years the Porsches and Vettes that I've borrowed left me jaded. Guess a race specific car is in my future.

Very true. My brothers and my friends have all told me similar things. It was a blast. I can't wait till the next one to really work on my driving. Hopefully the next one doesn't get in the way of my Tacoma meet... I'd be a sad panda.

Nice meeting you too Josh! And thanks! Rinzler's coming along gradually.

You might have to remind me next event since I probably won't be there, but I'll make sure whoever drives the car let's you ride along a few times at least.

The award was my 3rd fast time of the day award, one in each of the last 3 years. I've won them all in the same bug eye, just in different stages of development. 1st year in E street prepared. 2nd in Street Modified, and now in X Prepared.

Loving the race rubber. It has taken a few events to realize how hard they can be pushed, how to get the pressures right & keep them there, how the car's stock springs/struts are going to handle them and the confidence to use them to their full advantage. Finalizing decisions on aftermarket suspension soon, then focusing on dropping some weight from this 3350 lb chassis.
