3.31.18 GRRR Can-Am Qualifying Results.jpg

In qualifying we saw Shawn at the top of the field with a 4.280 sec lap on the Orange lane. 

 

We decided to run crazy lane format to have enough marshals. First the upper 4 lanes were run through and then we rotated down to the lower 4 lanes. It worked well.

A close race with Jay just edging Doc for the win by one lap. Tony had a nice drive for third place. Terry and Shawn had a nice race as well finishing on the same lap.

I want to give two shout-outs to Shaun Naughton and Tony. Shaun was fast all day, TQing for Can-Am and winning the F1 race. Congrats to Shaun. Also, Tony had a great drive to finish 3rd in Can-Am and he was 2nd qualifier. And what Jay said.

Doc, I think I may have my new meds figured out. They all make you drowsie or can cause dizziness. So I started to take at night. That’s the best race I was able to run in a long time. Had a bad blue lane the the rest were good. Didn’t hurt my car was a rocket. It was fun again.
