Good morning, race fans!


 


34 cars took the green this morning at MIS... and what a FANTASTIC morning it is, too.  Clear blue and 70 degrees.  The high today and tomorrow is supposed to be right at 80 degrees.  Excellent t racing weather!


 


Sal's driver meeting was both well-attended and short.  


 


The ChumpMaster (Buick Roadmaster Station Wagon #500) was our official pace car, driven by Stigdad, who will also be supporting our sponsors and media by providing a few ride-alongs and giving our guests a real "on-track" experience.  Likewise, our web guru, Rob Verenna will also be providing ride-alongs when he's not doing Pace Truck duty.


 


Okay, here's what happening...

Well, we had a little excitement here.  Sorry for dropping off the radar.  It seems that someone at MIS forgot to close a gate and we had a spectator car drive across NASCAR 2 and onto the road course.  We went FCY for 5 laps while MIS Fire-Rescue collected the car and escorted them off the track.  GEEZ!

 

How many penalty laps did they get?

Car #911 Team Failcar didn't start due to a radiator hose that decided to explode right before the parade laps. This lead to a catastrophic wave of failures (it's in the name), but the car eventually made it out...

 

 

 

....and made exactly 2 turns out of the pits before dying again  <_< 

Apologies to all the teams out there for the drama. We joined the race just long enough to make it slightly worse for everyone else.

 

Good news is that the car made it out after we replaced a faulty Fuel Injector relay.

Unfortunately for me, in particular I drove out from Chicago to make the first driver's stint, which was immediately ruined by car issues, and then I had to thereafter drive back to Chicago for work.

Hope to see you all there tomorrow :)

Thirty five minutes in and only 5 cars still on the lead lap, although Holy Rollers are charging hard and should catch up some day.

Awesome battle for second between the team captains for Bavarian Mustache Works and Mopar 4 Life trading the spot back and forth currently separated by 0.014s.
