Qualifying is all wrapped up here at the 2014 Cactus Classic. I had another good day today.
In truck I got the TQ in Q3 and Q4 to get overall TQ. I feel really good with my truck. Looking forward to the mains.
4wd was good again. Q3 I was pushing hard and made a couple costly mistakes. I was still in 2nd, but then I crashed with two laps to go and gave up my good finish. Was bummed with my mistakes, but my pace is good. Q4 was a great qualifier. I rolled it the first lap, but I landed back on my wheels. I stayed calm and kept my pace. Car felt really good and I ended up in 2nd. I will start the mains in 2nd behind Jorn. I feel good for the mains.
2wd today was frustrating. My car has been really good and I’ve been driving good, but not putting the whole run together. Q3 I was really fast and fighting for the TQ, but I made mistakes and threw it away. Q4 I needed a good run. I had a TQ, but my next best point was a 10. I wanted a good solid run. My car started good and halfway through the heat, I was leading. I was a little off the TQ time from the B heat, so I started pushing a little more. On the last lap I was close to TQ, but I made a stupid mistake and crashed. I dropped from leading the heat to 5th in my heat and 7th for the round. I was really mad at myself after that. Luck would be on my side though, I was in a 3 way tie for 4th overall. I had the fastest combined time and I will start 4th in the mains. My car is good, I just need to drive a little better.
I’m looking forward to the mains, can’t wait to race. Thanks for checking in and God Bless!
