what laps are you driving? im doing first 3 you guys start right behind me.I will have a couple of my pit boxes out there if anyone needs something. I will be finishing up in 1600 so if anyone needs to make an unscheduled driver change let me know. Good luck out there swingers.
Randy i saw you out testing in Barstow last sunday. How did it go?
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?
One week away! Let's hear some odds!\m/
