No sweat. They were four wide and I thought the Fox next to me was coming over, so I just barely lifted, and wham. I did the same thing to one of the Aquilante cars a lap or so later, when she missed a shift (a guess).

just watched the coverage of the John Heinricy program. Why didn't they just go down to his pit and give him a big B.J.

I really like John, but they loooooove him. Almost embarrassing, considering all the great racing going on throughout the field.

Hello this is andy schniedermeyer with the 89 silver camaro #117

Mon- we were only able to get about 2 laps in

Tues- about 2 laps in my shutoff key vibrated when i went over some of the curbs in the esses. Pulled over to mess with it and my car overheated.

Wed- ran about 5-6 laps, coming down the front straight car died turning into 1, Apparently you have to put enough gas in the car.

Thurs- finally able to get some good laps in without having to keep looking in my mirrors for GT2 cars

Race day - pulled up to grid went to back in clutch pedal went straight to the floor. My clutch slave cylinder broke. Thanks to my brother corey and some people from St. Louis they push started me and i started last. During the first two laps i was able to speed shift, but after that my transmission didnt like it so i finshed the rest of the race in 4th gear.

Overall i learned a lot, had fun and think i did pretty well for my 1st runoffs

Also big thanks to jim wheeler for all the help and parts through out the season. Tim white for all the help at the runoffs. And kim mcdonald for help throught the season.
