DUDE. I would have LOVED to have taken Brandi out! That woulda been pretty cool...buuuuuut, I'm not so sure I would have known how to even turn her on.

But thanks for the congrats and it was good seeing you too, man. Hope all is well for you and you're feeling better.

lololol, I could'a helped in that dept.... she has them wide and sticky shoes on her now.... but might'a had to get Pete on the ground to set her bouncy rebouncy stuff.... She's set up for straight and fast right now....

This was the final run for the day and one of my two screw up runs.

Totally saved the course workers from setting up plowed cones.

Oh, I knew halfway through the course it wasn't going to be my fast time. I was off a couple cones and figured I'd hammer it down just before that last cone on the straight and stay with it as long as I could to try to make up time. Well, I did hammer it down....and then some...

I saw those cones coming up and just knew there was no way I was going to make it around while braking. So I just laid on the brakes in that straight line knowing I'd be able to stop in time. Oh well.....it would have been some work for them and no one needed that.

Got some more videos uploading soon.


AAAaaannnnd that DNF that I was so adamant didn't happen? Yeah. Um... Well they were BOTH right....I DNF'd twice on that run. No idea what happened, but it was alllll jacked up. I'll post that one too as soon as it finishes uploading.

Oh yeah...

I was pretty ticked when I heard them tell me I DNF'd. I had no idea how it would have happened. All I could think of was, "I went waaaay outside on that big 2nd turn, but I didn't leave the course. Oh yeah I did. I left the course twice. Had an idea it was possibly due to the far outside turn, but had NO idea I DNF'd earlier in the run on the inside hard right turn. I watched the video a couple times and said, "WTH?!?! Where the hell did that come from?!?!"

I was so sure...and see? Video doesn't lie! I was wrong. I admit it. :(

The 2nd time you guys called out that I DNF'd was hilarious as all get out....cause I KNEW that one was wrong and y'all were messing with me laughing y'alls asses off....lol

Here's my best run that got me 1st place modified. After watching, I see room for improvement on a couple spots that could have gotten me into the 46 times.

AAAaaaaaand here's that DOUBLE DNF.

I simply lost my mind on this one. I think this was my 2nd run for the day and I was by myself. Never walked the course as I was way too busy helping Dana set up the booth. But here you go. Yes....I was wrong....I admit it...lol




Here's a direct link since, for me, it's not loading the entire video....weird...

LOL...

You ran great... I believe only the 1LE's ran below 47. Sure wish I would have gotten more track time. Just barely got a feel for the track.
