We had a makeup feature to start the night. Unfotunately, after the 2nd lap, the driver door came off and flew up over the roof. We had to retire. After using July to find the setup that was most comfortable to me and the car, we have begun to show improvements in the lap times. We are still looking for a bit more bite off the corner and believe we have found the issue of a mis-aligned J-Bar. We are into the tuning stage of the car as it gets better and better as the season goes on. Hopefully, we can transfer this success into some better results, but we are not too worried about that at the moment. We want to continue to improve and finishes will take care of itself. On our regular race program, we rolled out in our heat race and spun on the 2nd lap. I don't like spinning, but we are pushing the car a bit to see how it responds. We recovered and passed a few cars and headed into the feature starting 12th. The car was bit slippery on exit, but we stayed with the pack and except for two laps out of 20, we had descent lap times. Hopefully, this week we can continue the improvement.
We have 3 races left for the season. We are currently looking at purchasing the Spooner Civic Center and that has taken up a lot of our time. If you get a chance if the sale goes through, come by and see us this winter.
