Team Missing Lenk arrived on Sunday, checked in Estero and prepared for 4 days of pre-running. Weather was great, pre-running went great, taco's were great, everything was going just plain great. Race day, car was in top shape and ready to rumble. Everything was going great right up to RM42 when a giant rock (the size of a small truck) popped out of nowhere and took out the front end of the car. We were able to limp it back to town via the highway. Grant & I were a few cars behind around K31 on highway 3 when everyone started to brake hard. Grant jambed the brakes but the little red car behind us didn't follow suit. Grants trailer hitch ripped the front of the car apart to the motor. I jump out to see a Mexican girl in the right front seat crying, the guy driving asking Grant "why you stop so fast" and "look what you did to my car" I then called weatherman / Score Ops and report the accident. 3 minutes later a Federal Policeman shows up and asks "wut up" and after he gets briefed as to the obvious, we were back on the road with no damage to the truck except some paint on the hitch.
