Not much time at all to cover all that has occurred as I need to recover from a blown motor.
The highlights include a noticeable reduction of power halfway through the race, fading brakes into the tough turns, and finally the motor shutdown just as I up righted toward the last turn on the last lap…
I coasted fast through the last turn and was about to be overwhelmed with disappointment when I saw Chuck waving the checkered flag.
With a last ditch attempt to salvage the points for the GP500 class, I popped my clutch and the engine roared to live.
Well, perhaps it was more like it spit and sputtered on one cylinder across the finish line.
I immediately pulled the clutch back in and let it coast to pit out.
From there, I walked my trusty steed, with help from Mike Hutchison, back to my pit knowing I would not be in the next race.
It was in the next race that Jamie had a crash, all by himself, that was recorded on camera.
We have proof positive that Brad had nothing to do with this one.
Time to rush off and pick up another Craigslist, $300 special, CL350 from Hiram, Georgia.
Gotta have it ready for THIS SATURDAY.
Stay tuned for more detailed information as time allows…
