Well I had a pretty good race yesterday, got 4th, ended up 3rd after a dq. Today was a standing start and I TOTALLY blew it. I went from 3rd to last in about 2 seconds and then got hit by a CMC car in turn one. Yes, I was that far back. :-[ I fought my way back up to 6th so hopefully I'll be starting in 4th or 5th for the championship race tomorrow. I'm running a huge restrictor and only have 349 hp and 335 torque and I'm 100 lbs over weight.

Oh well, having a blast.

I would upload some video but my internet sucks right now.
 
Well, I ended up 3rd in the championship race. I gave up the inside in turn 1 on the second lap and it probably cost me second place. I think I was faster but I just couldn't get back around Fisher. It was a blast! ;D

Here is the uncut video, a bit long but it gets better after a few laps.
