Either way, it sucks when someone jumps the start like that when they are 2 seconds off the pace and then hold everyone else up. Next time go to the 4th down and 7 playbook: hard block or long punt. Good luck!
      Jumps the start? You sure about that? You and emilio can rage all you want, but so far he is racing and winning.

      Not his fault that he brought a better car if it's legal.

            provisional results are up with crusher in front of everyone across the line. Must have been a little wet because best lap was 1:52.9.

                    No I'm not sure. I just watched the vid and I was sympathizing with his frustration because we've all experienced that. Sorry for all my "rage".

                      It was wet. Emilio past the two front cars and just kept pulling away each lap. At the end of the session he was about 1/2 straightaway in front of the acura.

                        Heat race #2

                        The win in heat race #2 puts me on pole for the championship race Sunday. They award points for each heat race finishing position
                        then tie-break equal points by demoting the driver with the slowest race laps.

                        I had never driven Mid Ohio in the wet so I was basically learning the wet line on the formation lap. Damn near spun it twice squirreling tires
                        and testing for traction of line. Started to figure out a few new lines as the race progressed and was able to open a gap. Started pedaling a bit once the gaps was at 8s or so.
                        Dry line just started in the braking zone for Keyhole and T10 so the guys on intermediates starting closing back in. I saw P2 in my class, the white RSX, stuck behind the TTB white Civic and both closing with two to go. Knew it would be dangerous to have to defend against those guys so I ramped it backup again to keep my buffer.

                        Very satisfying to be able to run Mid Ohio in the rain, at Nationals, and win. Plus it was just a ton of fun slip sliding around, under pressure, trying desperately to learn the wet line
                        and not fly off in the process. Definitely my most tense, and rewarding sprint races ever.

                        Now to do it again on Sunday in the dry.

                        Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

                          That's some quality wet track driving there.

                                For a guy who races where it rarely rains, you make it look easy.
