What a crazy 8 days! We traveled over 3,500 miles in the Mustang and ran 19 events. We drove through some great country, only had one day of rain, and visited some of the coolest tracks. Sebring had to be by far the most historic and best track to get to race at!
Last night after arriving to South Bend we were able to get a little sleep in preparation for the final day. Day 8 was a dry skip pad. It is exactly like day 1 but instead of driving on wet well, as you guessed, we drove on dry. The car did well but again we were at an event that typically a Corvette will do well at. This event was short and we were in and out of it in a matter of hours.
After the dry skid pad Brock Yates and Tire Rack put on a giant meal and awards dinner. It was nice to get a good meal, have a few beers and laughs, and watch a slide show of the week of racing. This year we finished 4th in our class. We were, of course, shooting for first which was our ranking last year but this year it was not going to happen. I will say the car did fantastic with zero breakage or issues.
After the awards the party was not over. Big Chris and myself heading back to the home base for a big Welcome Home Party over at Pie Eyed Petey’s. Thanks Everybody at Pete’s for putting that on!
We want to thank everybody involved in this event. Family for dealing with us being gone, Brenspeed for supporting the build, Gas Monkey Energy for the great sponsorship, SCT Performance, Mcleod Clutch, and Continental Tire. A quick shout out to our friends at Gas Monkey Garage and Collins Brothers Jeep as well! Thanks Tire Rack, Brock Yates, Bryan Humphries for the great photo’s all week, and of course Solomon Rosenthal for all you do!
