We finally got the car together for the last two races of this year.

First night
Heat: Started 11th Finished 10th
Feature: Started 21th Placed 14th
Car running hot 4 laps into feature. Dummy light came on and the dummy driving shut it off.

Second night
Heat: Started 10th Finished 6th
Feature: Started 12th Placed 10th
Got loose going into 4 and could not catch it, decided to help it spin. Turned wheel hard left and mashed loud pedal. The 360 stopped with me pointing down the front stretch. Mashed loud pedal, car darts towards wall, the car that was behind me plows RF. All RF suspension parts are junk: tie rods, wheel, tire, both control arms, broke the motor mount bols, fuel pumps, fuel line, fender, hood, bumper. However the frame was not hurt. We are done for the year. Got a lot of work between now and 05.

I know how you feel!! Just look at it as a learning experience. I know it was fun while it was running, so remember that part!! Good luck next year.

Thanks guys/gals.

I was mad at myself for making stupid mental mistake. If I had just spun out like I did before, I would have been at the tail again and within a few laps I would have been back where I was before I spun. And we could have went racing this passed weekend.

Oh well, Chalk it up, break out the wallet, turn the wrenches some, and get ready for next year.
