Neo13 is over. What a great day today!!!!! I got my 5th victory in nitro at a Neo race out of 5 appearances. I will start the day at the beginning. We had the final for electric. After yesterday’s switch issue in the semi, I was 15th on the grid. I did not get a good start as someone decided to roll the first double in front of me and I was planning on jumping it. I made my way up into 5th or 6th about halfway through, then a marshal jumped out to get some crashed cars on the launch thing after the huge double. I landed right on the marshals head. Thankfully he was fine. He was also my mechanics daughters boyfriend. Crazy!!!!! I ended up 4th, not at all what I wanted, but that is racing. After that race I was surprised by two faces at my pit. At first I did not realize who they were. This year the HotRod Shootout, I met a nice English family at the pool. We chatted a few nights and talked life. I told them about this race and where it was. They freaking showed up at the track today. How RAD is that!!!!!! True fans 🙂 cheers mates!!!!
Then it was semi practice. It was much warmer outside today and you could actually see blue sky. I thought they had some weird sky in England. I thought it was only grey or something, but I was wrong, England does in fact have a blue sky. My car felt ok, but I was crashing like crazy. My car felt too soft. I wasn’t worried though. I went up on my shock oil and added a touch of camber to my car for the semi. I bolted on a new set of AKA Super Soft Impacts, and it was race time. I had a flawless semi. Not getting off line or making one mistake the entire 20 minutes. I won my semi by 25 seconds. It felt awesome to be clean for the whole race. Boots won his semi, but he was 14 seconds slower than mine. I didn’t make any changes to my car for the final. I started on TQ for the final and led every lap to take the win. It was amazing. I have had some bad luck lately and I was soooooooooooooo happy to work hard, drive good, and get the result. I can’t believe that I’m 5 for 5!!!!!!!
After that champagne shower I had, it was time for a proper water shower and dinner. I got to eat with the current World Champion. Robert Battle and I are really good friends and it was nice to get to hang out and chat during dinner. Also with his whole team he travels with. That is Euro style. I think it’s awesome that he is able to have a whole team of guys on his side at the races.
