    Congratulations Marc.


    One to forget for me. Messed up qualifying and then passed a lap down car under yellow because I wasn't paying attention. Stayed out on the last run hoping for a caution which never came. I can however say that the setup was trash

    Not sure about that, Nigel deJong beats me most weeks in the Sunday night truck league I run in.

    I pitted 2 laps after you at the end of the first stint so had slightly better tires. I also tried really hard not to wear them out, that's how I was able to close the gap. I planned to do the same in the second run, pit 2 laps…

    Wow what a race. If it had gone green I think it would have been very close between me and Marc. Whatever possessed me to not pit under the second caution I do not know. With so many cars a lap down the worst I would have restarted would have been 8th

    Marc, I noticed that you were arcing 1-2 a lot less than me. Mid corner you would get to my bumper and I would gain it back some down the straight, perhaps that helped to save fuel.


    I held it up there as best I could when I got into the wall. Only had

    A few people have mentioned about saving tires over the course of a run. I find that the best way to save tires is to not over drive the car and use as little steering input as possible.

    Sorry Alexander. The truck wouldn't drop into gear when I shifted. Had to pull the paddle twice before it would change gear!

    I struggled a bit in practice to find pace. The car very felt different than the truck which I raced at Vegas on Sunday night. Very tight on entry and through the center. Fortunately my race pace was better. Disappointed that the caution came out at

    Really happy to have had an error free race, making an effort to improve my concentration in these long races.
