In race one torential rains brought our #6 Super Unlimited Spirit back to the garage before any off track excursions occurred. Whew!In race two we weren't so fortunate. After qualifying 5th in the August heat the start of the race was going well at the start... for a while. At the green flag we were moving up the inside after waiting for the spot to open up.

Just as we got about door to door he tried to close the door sending us both off track. After a tow & a couple of dents we were back on track. Metal dents... carbon fiber cracks.
