Wednesday Open: Daytona

  • Mike- p 15- had some lucky breaks in missed a lot of Rex throughout the race I was leading the Outside lane P2 on the green white checkered, and the guy behind me going down the backstreet try to shove it in the middle and turn my ass. 
  • David – p. 9  was leading outside, got hung out by a guy who thought I was going to the inside, he showed me his cockpit view, and how it basically looked to him like i did, even though the overhead looked like i didn’t.  So  a little deflated but at least in contention.
  • Justin – p10, stay clean the first half got caught up in a mess. 3 min of damage took about 10 to go to get back to normal just took advantage of some check ups on the green white checkered managed a 10p i couldn’t complain still plussed up for the night/
  • Tony – p 9 typical plate racing. Got stuck behind a Logano and a flaming Gordan car got my ass kicked like Terry Funk in roadhouse  as they wrecked. Made the mistake of staying out when shouldve got my minute damage fixed. Fell 6th to 23th but got a lucky caution and got damage fixed and went from 19 to 9 on the white 
  • Chris – P2 – was spun on lap 16 and went a lap down. Got the lucky dog and road the high line on a GWC to finish 2nd 

Thursday Open: 

  • Mike – p 3-  top 10 most of the Rece. Made a bad move with about 10 to go to the middle and got hung out made my way back up so on the final green white checker I was fifth comment to the checker the top three wrecked and I was able to get by a couple of them  I had a bit of nose damage at that point so I’m glad to get a nice top three  

Rochette P11 was all over the place. Thought I had the whole world in my hand But had a green flag wreck avoidance had screwed up my top 5 run and had to follow some buzzards as we lagged behind the main pack. Definitely Fiend’n for a win this year
