I was a lap down restarted P 24.  From their work, my way clear to the lead and lead the last run actually, pulling away from the field gapping them as we came to the end of the race. Definitely earned that one career win number 93. 
  • Rochette P forgot to take tires on the last run
  •  Justin – p 19, qualified 17th took a lot of damage in the beginning, put me a lap down, stayed a lap down until the end. I just needed a caution. At the end I was the candidate for the lucky dog. Glad to see a teammate win

Sunday Fixed 

  • Mike – p  had an early Caution but after that ran from 18th all the way up to second in 44 laps   on a pitstop, I had unsafe pit entrance and went to labs down   Around half way, I got dumped by a guy divebombing. Four minutes damage the stayed in the race got one lucky dog in heat up finishing P 13.  
  • Justin- p32, started 27th i was in the top 10 by half way to go and simple as this i got hooked down the straight junked my car. I was disapointed 

Wednesday Open: Kansas 

Mike- p18 – finally made a good call. It had pretty good track position around seventh but got door by a guy and got meatball got back to 25th but was able to recover a little bit.

David – p14 Long Greens early, caution though during cycle forced wave around and bad track position.  Though quickly got back on even tires.  Then the late caution fest began,  I didn’t survive one of them.  But enough others didn’t either that dragged it home 14th.

  • Pick up cup at Daytona. Wrecked out.
  • Dellara Dash at Phoenix P1. Let every lap and get some massive donuts at the end. What a great car.
  • Gen 4 at old Atlanta. Top split. coming to the initial green. Some guy is warming his tires and spins out which caused me to get rear ended not gonna be into the air did the green came out and they piled up and I put all but eight of us a lap down where the entire field had to take a wave around. Stay green after that fitting after the halfway point from P78 laps later a caution ended up staying out saving the last set for the next caution but it never came and I faded back to finish 12.
