Rodger Coan-Burningham Posted December 10, 2018 Report Share Posted December 10, 2018 (edited) I guess I could have started this about 5pm Saturday since our day was over by 11:45 and I decided to make a run for home before darkness. There was a lot of carnage out there due to the heavy rain. Made for a bad day for some. Congrats to the teams that finished and double kudos if you finished well. We started out with a decent draw, maybe 13th or 14th out and after a few laps Casey called in and said I HAVE NO GRIP, THE CAR IS TERRIBLE. I said calm down, you are leading the race so apparently everybody has the same issue only worse. It didn’t last. I am always reminded that this sport rewards those that plan well and prep well. We had a caliper bolt that was either left loose of came loose that shut us down for 15 min or so. You just can’t do enough double checking of things that you touch. After getting back out we were working up the field again, changed drivers and Chris was really laying down some good laps. Some of the fastest of the field but just a mile to try to come back from. Unfortunately he was pressing a little hard and spun coming out of the museum and smacked the car pretty hard on the front left. That pretty much ended it for us. Car is most likely repairable but quite a bit of damage. Thanks for the corner workers staying out there in that junk. Thanks to @zack_280 and the other guys that worked pitlane. Thanks to Champcar for putting the event on, as always. Edited December 11, 2018 by Burningham 2 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
