Event #8 on Sunday was a tough one. I had 1 dry run which was my best and then the rain came. 3 wet runs one semi dry and 1 more dry run. By run 6 it was down to the wire with Bill running well and me hitting cones on my fast runs. On run 6 bill put up a really good time which really put the pressure on me as he now had the winning time. I went out and ran as fast and wide as I could and just passed Bill by .07 seconds. Way too close for comfort!
Here is a video of run 5 semi-wet. It is amazing how much grip there is on slicks on a damp surface. On this run I hit the rev limiter so top speed was right at 70 mph. Also on this run I had the honor of Bob Hassett (bob-stl) riding shotgun. Thanks for coming out Bob. He left with a big smile on his face.
Skip to the 1:00 mark as my video editor is having problems. Sound is poor because I had the waterproof cover on for the rain.
