I missed seeing this post on the 20th (I was hosting a USSCA race).

 

I had the fun race down on my calendar for Nov. 4th (and we obviously didn't race)

 

I've had birthday parties booked on the 11th , for well over a month.

I had ever seen this before.

The car got hooked over the wall, by the guide post.

We wound up with 10 different racers for the day.

The GTP race was the best one, with the leaders finishing together on Orange and Blue, with Ricky D holding off Kato by about 3 feet.
