2450. Per Grand Am rules.

First off, that was an exciting race!! Very intense. A couple of crazy moments with our friends over at Flat Out Motorsports and their MX5 Miata. They have a well prepared car and were a bit faster then us at corner exit. Our drivers were battling all weekend and we happened to both start in the back. Made for an exciting start. After the driver change, We got caught up with Ryan Eversley of Compass 360 and had to serve a stop and go, plus 10. That put us back of the pack with about 90min left in the race. Facing the LONGEST green flag stint we have seen in a while we were also a lap down. We were literally praying for a yellow. For fuel and to bunch everyone up again so we could make some moves. We worked our way to 16th then got our long awaited yellow with 33min left. We knew we had a race. In 30 mins we went to 8th position and the checker flew! From 33rd, thats not terrible. We'll take it. Good news is we are 4TH IN POINTS!! Way stoked!!

More pics as I rest and get home. Sitting in Denver waiting for my connecting flight.

I agree. That would be hilarious.

Its a lot of work. It seems every moment I am at the track, I am frantically working. Changing something. There was very little time between the sessions for us to make changes. We would take our driver and car feedback and try to make appropriate changes. It just never seemed like we had enough time. The only thing that was sorta nice, the track would kick us out at 6pm EVERY night. So we were forced to quit working and go rest. But at the same time wished we could spend more time with the car.

But looking back............very fun.

If aero was allowed in this series, we'd be ALL over it. Believe me though, these cars are running faster then most without it. Grand-Am and the competitors are VERY well versed in making cars fast and reliable. Besides Nascar its one of the more popular series.

^he wants a cleverley tuning sticker on your honda.
and i was pointing out that you didn't have a splitter and that he could make one and warrant a cleverley sticker on your honda lol.

but, since aero is not allowed, he will have to stick with his second job and just give you all rusty trombones. that should do it.

Congrats to Jason and the guys. I do have one question for Jason.

When do you plan on racing big boys cars instead of cute High school girl cars?

LOL, I bet his high school girl car is still quicker than most anyone's big boy car here.

Jason, you need to stop by and say Hi again at DTC in Sandy. I'd love to pick your brain someday. Sincere congrats on living the dream, and no, not that ****ty Bruce T. Halle one.

Agreed. I just enjoy driving. Who cares how fast you are. Just get on the track and turn laps. Biggie gives us one of the BEST and CHEAPEST opportunity's to drive. Take advantage.
