Pretty crappy day for for me, car felt sluggish and qualified 8th. Finished 7th in the first race. Between the 1st and 2nd race JP noticed that the relay cover had popped off and jumped in front of the air intake... oops!

Luckily the car was running great for race 2 (shown here) but starting 7th made it hard to get up front. Getting slammed off the track toward the end didn't help either. Finished 5th. (4th when the guy who hit me gets DQ'd)

Race 1: http://youtu.be/wwuV-TEtUGw

Started P1 in class. Got double screwed before the race even started as one guy ahead of me lined up on the wrong side and another dude ahead of me dropped out on the pace lap, meaning some of my competition behind me in the left row got a double lucky bump. Stayed out front until some fuel starvation issues started. Contemplated stopping but decided to limp on, hoping I had a big enough buffer over second place. Unfortunately he caught me on the next to last lap. Came in 2nd in class.

Race 2: http://youtu.be/2QXJFBoxodc

Started P1 in class again, this time on the front row overall as they had us gridded differently. Jumped out to a good lead until fuel starvation started again. Fought it for a couple laps until a reg flag incident ended the race early and gave me a win in class.
