ChampCar Staff DuncanDana Posted August 14, 2012 ChampCar Staff Report Share Posted August 14, 2012 So with all the talk from VIR I was afraid this would get lost in the white-noise.I want to thank the Junkworks team, car 101.I was just a week or so over a really bad flu at VIR. I was still on antibiotics and some other meds and frankly probably shouldn't have driven. But it was VIR and 24 hours on the Grand course and I wasn't going to be denied. Well an hour into my stint and I was sick as a dog. Ok, the exhaust leak probably wasn't helping but I was so sick I was becoming disoriented and afraid I was going to crash. I called my team and came in for a relief driver.When I got out of the car and stood up I all but passed out. I don't really remember much, but I recall being helped over to the wall where hands grabbed me and got me seated. Someone gave me some water. I remember talking to strangers and getting back over the wall into a chair.Turns out the hands that grabbed me and got me over the wall were the Junkworks guys pitted next to us. They took care of me so my team could get the car back out. I have no idea how long I sat in their chair or how much of their water I used, but man I really have to thank those guys.So thanks, and if you see them, please tell that what great guys they are.Dana 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
