Thanks.

I have been searching through the forums for advice on the first trip out.

So far have fun is amongst the top response.

I have also been told to drive the car as fast and it and I will go and not worry about it.

We qualify tongiht so I will start where I qualify.

Any other words of wisdom??

Hey thnaks guys!!
Last night was a success as far as I see it.

I looped the car four times in hot laps. LOL
I did not think I would have the ***** to do it, but once I got out there, it was easy. I found the "edge" and crossed it more than once.

Hot laps started 11 finished 10. Running about 220 deg.

Feature started 19 and shut it down when the dummy warning light came on telling the car was 240. So I finished 14th.

We got bumped in the rear once in hot laps and teh bummper colapsed like it was designed to do.
And when I was getting lapped in the heat race, someone hit the fender as he passed me on the inside.

It was a good night. Nothing broke or fell off. I was very pleased.

We have a few things to adjust and address before the 25th.

Thanks again
