Day 8 is complete and a great day it was. After 8 days, over 3000 miles, and 17 events we finished first place in class in the Brock Yates One Lap Of America. Saturday we went into the event with enough points that we pretty much had the win locked in. That made it less stressful as well as allowed us to be a bit easier on the car for the event. The last event was called a dry skid pad. It was just like our first event except rather than the track be covered in water we used a dry surface.
We finished the event and we were waiting for the points to be updated online. Even though our calculations told us we had first place in our class we had to see the results with our own eyes. Once the points updated we had the confirmation we had done it. We had accomplished what we had set out to do which was take the Team Gas Monkey Energy Brenspeed Mustang to first place in our class. 8 days were over and the highs and lows have paid off.
After the awards we headed back to the home base in Indiana for a huge celebration. Thanks to everybody that made this happen. Thanks to our family’s, the team at Brenspeed, Gas Monkey Garage, Kooks Headers, Lucas Oil, Mcleod Clutch, Roush Performance, 360 Wraps, Tru7, Continental Tires, Collins Bros Jeep, Kedan Logistics, American Car Magazine UK, Tire Rack, Auto Park Ford in Bremen Indiana, Brock Yates Jr., and all the staff involved in making the One Lap Of America possible.
The Mustang held together very well we would not have done anything different.
