Friday Open: Vegas

  • Rochette – wrecked out
  • Stephen- PGA BS
  • Adam – Wrecked Out
  • Donnie – Wrecked out – limped home, p26
  • Tom – Wrecked out – limped home
  • Greg – was leading on the gwc and lost connection
  • Mike  – started p24 but quickly worked my way fwd – stayed between 3rd to 12th basically, always pitted for fuel when others didnt to make sure i didnt get caught out… I will take the podium! p3!
  • Sunday Open
    • Stephen – P1 baby!!!! Me and @Tom Dreiling should of been 1 2 in some way. But a bad caution caught him on pit road put him a lap down and never got another yellow. He was leading before and during stops to.
    • Steve – Started 25th. Was a caution filled race with 9 cautions for 36 Laps.  Got to 3 taking Mikes advice of trying right sides only.  Car was good on 2 tires.  On the 2nd to last caution had to pee, pulled in went a lap down and finished 19th.
  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike – early in the race got taken three while I was in the outside. I got pushed to the wall 10 minutes damage in the finishing the race P 30.
    • Tyler – P14 after starting 20th. Decent race but the aggressiveness going 3 wide was not pretty. Passing was difficult and you really had to lean on someone to pass. Race ending was interesting as the yellow came out as the leader got the white. Was hoping the race would have finished then. On to Homestead. 

Wednesday Open:  Homestead

  • Hall – p 15, sloppy race, wrong coin flip on caution timing, but stayed out of the wrecks
  • Tyler – P 14, too many cautions. Had one decent green flag run which helped the car set. Worked the high line most of the race. Was able to race with teammate Kyle for a good bit. Always a good time with the team. 
  • Stephen T -p2
  • Mike-p lap one I get loose and spin out all by myself and people wreck around me no damage. Restarted 13th got up to count on lab 17 I got loose again and destroyed the car.
  • Steve – Didn’t qualify, started 20th. 6 cautions at the start of the race then a green flag run for 54 laps.  Was 3rd when the caution came out, went in for tires with G/W/C restart.  Some guys stayed out and restarted 6th. Ended up 2nd by a foot.  Fun Race.
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p.  18- goal was to finish the race and I did do that.  I ran as high as a eigth. The people who put it on the first caution at sixth lap could make it out one more stop. I didn’t think they would be able to so I didn’t stop it ended up screwing me later.  
    • Donnie – P7, Q15.  Good middle and long run speed.  Race was uneventful for the most except for lappers trying to win the race on every lap.

Official Series

  • Ellis – Chris Maguire hosted- super cars at Michigan. Great race I missed the big wreck ended up P5.
  • Skip barber at Sonoma got clipped from a wreck in lap one had to pit for a meatball flag to get my fast repair and came out nine out of 11 Worked my way up to P5!!! my fastest lap was pretty quick for me, but I’m still three seconds off the leader.
