    4th place again. Not really much to say, good racing. Very hard to pass when there were no mistakes going on. Straight is pretty much the only move I could make coming of the last turn. Then it was round and round barely making the distance between 4th and 3rd get any smaller and trying to stay ahead of Andrew little by little. Wish I would have qualified better but I probably wouldn't have had anything for the top three finishers. Congrats to the winner. See you guys in a couple weeks.

    This was fun! I was surprised to be able to get into the 57s without using the clutch. I had auto-clutch and auto-blip going.

    p3 qualification was a surprise to me. I also felt initially I could get around Greg, but nope! He left me like the Wilson beach ball in that Tom hanks movie. Then, JT finally made a solid run at me going in T1 and I thought it best to let him by. He then also went the way of Wilson. At this point, my race pace was totally messed up. Mike caught me, and he too finally had a good run going into T1. I was able to act like some sort of nasty infection flare up there for a while for him, hoping for a bobble, getting as close at like 0.5, but again, I lost my mental edge, and away like Wilson he went.

    That said, I think it was a good race overall for me, especially considering I am still learning in a big way with you guys. I would say I am doing pretty good having only gotten back into this like a month and half ago, maybe? And, I gotta say, you guys are in the sim a lot! I can't keep up!

    Well, that didn't go as planned!

    Was definitely nowhere close to the front 5, but after qualifying a surprising 4th I thought that I would fight with a few drivers for a while. After a mediocre start, I fell into line behind Jay Steffey after the first lap, who made a great pass after climbing the hill side by side with me. It took me a few laps, but I managed to catch him going down the hill, and drafted to his inside taking back the spot going into Turn 1.

    Things were looking up....then we go into T6 again, and I turn in too soon to try and get a good run up the hill, which leads me to overshooting the line out of the turn, and I try to correct while the car's light (or in the air, check the replay!) and as I slow to gather it up, I move right and catch Jay's front fender (sorry again Jay), then go back to the inside where I catch the inner armco, then the outer one. I turn the car around and I have to hold the wheel more than 90 degrees to the left just to go straight, and I manage my way back to the pits. 12 minutes of repairs....

    OK, I can still finish the race.

    I watch the battles while the pit crew eats lunch with one hand, and does nothing with the other for 12 minutes. I finally can go after all additional repairs are done too, and I pull out of my pit stall and find that I have to hold the wheel almost 90 degrees to the RIGHT to go straight! Using the RF Suspension camera, I see the RF tire is pushed up under the car so far you can't even see it!!

    I jump out, knowing my day is done, and watch the rest of the race....some great battles, and while the turnout was lower than I hoped, I'll take 11 cars at Lime Rock any day.

    A big congrats to Samuel Scott on his domination tonight, and to JT Tami and Greg for their podium finishes!

    And a big shout out to teammate Jay Freels on his 6th place run, and just as impressive, zero incidents!! Way to go teammie!!

    Let's reconvene on July 17th, at Watkins Glen - Cup for our next MX-5 race!!
