After the race Jon came into the motorhome, drivers suit down to below his waist. He fell to the floor. I grabbed a nice cloth, soaked it in cold water and laid it on his head. “You’re not human.” He exclaimed. I think he was referring to the fact that I don’t wear a “Cool suit”. It had been a very hot humid day.
The good thing was that our Enduro finished just before lunch. As we were out racing the crewman, David, Eric and Paul stayed back at the trailer and packed everything up. We were able to leave Summit at 12:30. As much as
we all love racing being home early is so nice. 2019 marked my 20th year racing with the PCA and I’m always looking forward to the next one.
I hope I get to see you at the track.
Metro member Anthony Brown has been
doing very well this year. Anthony was second place in the National standings going into this weekend at Summit only 44 points behind Sam Mammano. Anthony has been racing a G class Cayman for quite a few years. Metro’s own Bill Riehl was 3rd in the National standings going into this weekend. Congrats to Sam, Anthony and Bill.
The second race went off well. I was grid in spot 22 for the start. Jon and Todd grid just behind me and Bill Riehl up in front a few spots. The race was another clean race without a single double yellow. I had some great fun but again
I could not catch the leaders in SPB. I finished the race 6th in SPB. Bill Real finished G class behind the leaders as well.
The Enduro race held some action. At the end Jon Bednarsh finished ahead of me in 6th place. I came in at 8th. Unfortunately for Bill his engine let go early on and caused him not to finish.
