    It takes something special to go from last to first, so congratulations to TCLN for that! Podiumites Thundadownunda and Racing Bandit deserve praise for their finishes.

    Even with half the field crashed out or damaged, you still need to finish so keeping your head is never a bad thing. Well done to the survivors of the mayhem! It wasn't easy this round.

    We have made phone calls, and a new car will be in the paint booth shortly so we expect to be back in full capacity to dodge the Vette and take on those pesky Ferraris!

        Reviewing film and checking our data to see what we did both good and bad. Bandit is feeling fortunate to have survived the carnage and have found a way to get on to the podium. Congratulations to T County and Thundadownunda on their finishes.

          Well at least we were consistent, slower but consistent. Congrats to the podium finishers. Actually have to agree with Slothead on this one, from last to top of the pack is some good runnin. Your driver lookin for new employment there Lugnuts?

              "Just Racing" can mean different things in different contexts. At our team meetings we always talk about race strategy, which stresses a calm approach to stay safe and save the car till the end of the race. And then they wave that green flag and everything changes. We basically become speed demons on drugs.

              We can live with being tied for 6th place along with the other Chevy team, but it's very hard seeing Boss Dave's team way up front in the lead. They have this little swagger in their stride these days that really torques our nuts.

                The T-county Boys couldn't be happier with the performance of the Corvette! Our driver, seeing the offs by other teams fought the urge to run right at the ragged edge to move up through the field faster, instead trying to be as methodical as possible. The patience definitely paid off and finally has our team a much needed moral booster of a win!
                The crew will be living it up tonight - that is for sure!!!

                  That fine German engineering carried us through. Can't say we set any speed records but at least our driver kept it under control to finish the race. A lot of racing left boyz and anything can happen. Keep dreaming Slothead.
