I certainly hope that you can make every round that you possibly can, Mike. You are the benchmark for us all.
As for the initial race and my punting you off, sincere apologies, Mike. I was rather taken by surprise that I hauled you in with ease through the Carousel and could challenge. For the last corner, T14, I had run onboard with you in your qualifying run so was again surprised that you appeared to shut down for T14 a good 40 yards or so early. I veered sharply to the right to avoid but no, it was too late.
In the restart race, Trae and I had a monster of a battle. He took the lead, fell off, fought back and passed. The crucial moment was T1 mid-race where Trae skipped just a bit too wide and lost adhesion in the grass. The tail of the Challenger swung out and his efforts to save the slide were not rewarded. I held my breath as the Challenger swung across my nose with me hard on the brakes. PHEW! Later trips to the sandbox for both Trae and Volzie left me miles ahead but it was a close deal til then.
CU in PQ! :)
