Nice win Mike. Nice race guys. I mentioned after the race that my monitor lost red and found out it made sense, looking back, and why it was turning blue and normal mostly through T3. Loose cable. Doh! When the screen lost red, I wasn't sure how many red dots I had left on the tires so I didn't look back. Had to let Mike by easily the second time, almost tried to fight for a couple of seconds the first time by though! It was like racing instead of the doors getting blown off! A couple of seconds anyway. lol

Jim and I went into T1 together and I sure hope I left room because I know I over drove pretty badly, didn't look at a mirror and was holding on for life (T1 of most races?). Lost a lot of time trying to tell my crew to put in more than the scheduled 14 laps worth of fuel, pitting when the rear tires disappeared (turned red). Wanted to pit at lap 20 but Jimmy was getting close as I was fumbling with the settings and I didn't have things set. I saw him in my mirror, stayed out and then pitted, without getting the fuel setting correct. Ran 10 laps, then took enough fuel to finish.

My first online points race was at Lime Rock in the GPL FD cars (Jim, I think you might have been in that one too!). Fun track!

Always fun! Thanks for hosting Trae

Congrats to Mike and Ziggy. No, Zig. I was my only and worst enemy all night. Fun racing as always. Three unassisted spins kept me out of contention for P2. I managed to get the fuel allotment closer than last race.

Hi, gys!  Mike won?  Gotta be a fluke.



I tried to talk one of my two sons into taking the wheel for the event but they begged off.

Just keeping an eye on things.  No pun intended...
