    Testing the car went well, we wound up taking a lot of the harshness out of the front end. I am just happy to make the car a little better each race! You should have stopped by and said HI!!

    I had a little mishap on a road crossing and I am very thankful we were all able to walk away, although my brother in law who was riding with me has a compressed fracture of a vertebrae in his back. He was able to walk away!! He will be at the race to lend his support which won't be physical. It's the most out of shape I ever have been without wrecking, I am especially happy with how forgiving my car is. I had to replace about half the front end this weekend but the car is done now and loaded on the trailer.

    Since we are talking about this, I asked Jim Clementes if it would be ok for me to drive my portion of the race without a co-driver. He said we would bring it up at the driver's meeting to make sure no one has a problem with it. He didn't think it would be an issue. My car is over the 1550lb requirement for a single seater. I would remove the seat and run as a single seater for the whole race but the guys I am teaming up with want to run as a two seater, which I completely understand. If the other co-drivers are still ok and want to ride with me too they will stay in, but if they are beat up and want out when I get in I would just like the option to go it alone, unless there is a reason I'm not thinking of that would give me an advantage driving alone. I completely get it if the car was under 1550lb but it's not.

    Does anyone have an issue with this?

    Not sure what road crossing it is, but it was where we were testing in barstow, not lucerne.

    926 and 929 are in different cars. 926 is Dan Wood the 929 is Don Wood. Don raced December with the new car,finshed and was steady all day. 926, this is it's first race with new owner. mods have been made and seems to be a pretty godd handling car. Both Should be solid.
