So I am disappointed with myself on the efforts I have put forth today in qualifying.

I really have no right to be, particularly with some of the struggles some of our other members are having with broken parts.

We were the number one qualifier after round one



and bumped to number two after I missed the tune up, not taking into account the water grains.



My reaction times on both runs would have lost me the race if these were not qualifying runs, but elimination rounds.

I NEED to do better tomorrow!

Guys be safe tomorrow!

Number two! Full story later, time to sit and eat dinner. Thanks again to Anne Giumento Lever and Steve Walczak for teaching me.



I won my finial round by .0007 seconds.

Will visit Graceland tomorrow and then on to Bowling Green for the Hot Rod Reunion.
