Dave’s Race Report:
We had a good turn out for last nights finial race of the series. Most of the usual suspects except for Davin and Roman were there to receive their LMK polo shirt. Thanks, LMK!! We ran all reverse last night, that is reverse qualify and reverse race. The #1 qualifier of Papal Thunder chose a different kart so they were bumped to the end of the field, moving everyone else up a position.
The first laps are always the best to watch and usually the only time outside passes work! Remember, outside in one turn means inside in the next!! The first caution saw 1st and 2nd positions stuck to the barrier, causing some anxiety on my part!! We got restarted only to have Chris Lock show everyone the HE was the fastest guy out there and ‘pass’ us. So now I learned…NONE SHALL PASS!
Next caution, here we go again… PayPal Thunder trying to hold off John Waldrop #5 and Chris Lock. The difference between the two was pretty obvious, John…bump…bump…bump. Chris…BUMP-BUMP…PUUUUSH, BUMP-BUMP…PUUUSH! I was NOT letting him bump-pass us again! I break checked HARD…I stayed inside in the slow turns…but after 5 or so laps he still had his way with me!! John gets the nice-guy-of-the-night award for not pulling a ‘Chris’ to get around me too!!
After 20 minutes of defending the lead, PayPal Thunder held on for the win with John Waldrop in 2nd and Team Saratov in third and Papal Thunder in 4th.
