Yea was a great session!  @Gordo and I still haven't figured out pit stops and it really hurt us at the end.  I had a good run and tried for 3rd on the last lap but screwed up the entry to roller coaster....pressure busts pipes I guess.  Great time!  Looking forward to the next practice and race!

Yea, I crabbed 13 and got in early and locked up the brakes after dropping a wheel track right.  I had done it previously.  100% my fault, pushing too hard.  He gave me plenty of room too.  I should of stayed behind him on the straight and drafted him though hog pin and made a run at start/finish.  Lesson learned

Chris, 

That was me... your laps times were way faster.  I got ahead with a fast pit and 100% clean 45 mins, no offs.   Drag race to the finish would have been exciting.  I know I was close on fuel and could see you coming for the entire white flag lap.  I was so hoping I wouldn't run out of fuel.  I sputter after the checkered...

 

fun time

Ha! Yea i was working my butt off to catch you for 3 laps and then we hit the front straight and I knew I was gonna have a shot.  I had a run going into 11 and backed off as it would of been bad for both of us.  Good clean fun for sure.  I'll get ya next time!!
