    (2/2) Jason's motor ended up dropping a valve which got him the DNF. All we can think of was the rear gearing; Jason made the call to switch it after qualifying. So I think what happened, is after the last turn before the start/stop straight, when he'd get in the draft his speeds picked up and that caused the gearing to top out the tach which lead to valve float and ultimately the valve drop. When I looked at the data logs, that kind of corroborates it... Kind of a crappy way to end such a promising weekend. We would've been on the podium for sure. Would've been nice to have two riders up there as we're also sponsoring Geoff May.

    (1/2) Hahaha, thats what my wife said. She was watching it on her tablet, screenshotted it and sent it to me. I thought it was pretty funny. We only had live timing in the pits as the stream was kind of unreliable. Been waiting for them to post the recording of the race so I can watch it.

    Kind of a crappy result especially when we had everything going according to plan, had a monster of a set up and pretty much had it in the bag if we stuck to our plan. I mean our pit times were down to 18 seconds for fill up and new front and rears; compared to the quickest time for other teams we observed at 26 seconds; that's where we would've set our gap, just like you saw with Barnes.

    Yep, would've had a red/black hat on and depending on the day a black or white MEM (my company) shirt or a black Woolich Racing shirt. Jeans, long hari, long beard, red shoes, intimidating looking. LOL.

    Nah, no flooding here where we live. We live on a tall hill so if we flood, Moses has returned in his Ark lol. Just a small acre sized lake forms in a large low area in our front yard.

    Me too. I got my backup generator ready just in case. Not saying were gonna have to use it but just thinking ahead. Funny though, it just rained it's ass off a minute ago and now the sun's peeking out..
    mr_honez ·
    Too late. It's already raining here, and supposed to get much worse. We've decided to stay home this weekend if it does.

    No, just did it help him out. He asked me if he could use me as another login and I said sure. He has me everywhere else! I won't be on here much, I'm only here now because he asked me to. Not much into blogs or these things.

    She won't use it much, she usually just looks on mine. We made it to test a theory on the like/rep thing but think it worked.
