That is the way it should be done. If you are not in it for a win (testing, pre-running, etc.), you should park it before the checkered flag.We talked to a few of the vintage racers in the class. I thought it was going to be an issue. None of them cared and 5 minutes later they 1 team was borrowing our crew chiefs generator to do some last minute welds on their race car.
I get that it was iffy. We were not going to finish the race. We would have had to pass our pit prior to finishing which we would have simply stopped and shut it down in our pit right before the finish line had we made it the 2 laps.
Thanks for all the kind words for the grinch. The car has come a long way. It’s an amazing car to drive now. I used to read about George seeley, the James gang, Hernquist, Grabowski’s and others and dream about racing/having a 5 car like them.
