Couple of updates.....From Apex Speed web site

"Correction. Not that It matters, but it was a toe link failure and not an engine. My apologies for the bad information."

Second link works okay. First link does not.

I saw the Medivac chopper flying by when I was setting up in the paddock but assumed it was responding to a highway accident.
They didn't announce anything until Saturday evening.

Thoughts and prayers to Jim's family.

Saturday Recap:
EP - Good battle early between Brakke, Hummel and Schreyer with Hummel taking an early lead.
Brakke worked his way into the lead with Anastopoulos taking 3rd when Schreyer dropped out.

FP - Good race coming down to a 3-way "who's going to out-brake who at turn 12" on the last lap.
Weaver won the braking contest with Bednarz 2nd and Sturm 3rd.

HP - I got a jump on Sargis at the start when he got boxed in. Steve caught and passed me in turn 1 while I struggled with the absolute worst handling race car I have ever driven.
We got separated by a couple of FP cars with the gap remaining constant. Traffic dropped out with 1.5 laps to go and I closed the gap but ran out of laps.
Trainer finished third, with this being his first time on the radial slicks.
After the race I discovered my front toe was out by 3/4" :shock: Big thanks to Bob's son Spencer for helping me get the car aligned before Sunday's race.

GTL - Zekert led early but then had an off in turn 6 and broke the front suspension. Orr led for several laps before pitting with a serious oil leak. That gave the win to Meyer who started DFL due to a mad scramble to replace a starter motor.

Sunday Recap
EP - Brakke won by large margin. Same order as Saturday.

FP - Close race between Weaver and Sturm. I saw Bednarz off in the gravel at 14, but couldn't tell what happened.

HP - Steve got a better start and led going into turn three. I got along side of him down the straight and could hear his engine cutting out/misfiring badly.
Trainer had an off on the first lap and pitted with a loose exhaust. Steve pitted a lap later. With nobody left, I soft pedaled the car to an uncontested win. Handing was much better but now I was fighting a long brake pedal. Things got interesting with 3 laps to go when it started to rain in turn 3 and the Carousel. I guess when the weather report says 15% chance of rain, they really mean that it will only hit 15% of the track :D

GTL - Zekert won handily with things spread out to Meyer and Orr.
