This was my first race since August of the prior year. Although a bit rusty, I qualified 5th. It was a hoot trying to catch Sandro and take away his 4th position. At about 27 minutes, I made a sketchy pass on a Miata in the esses. I've seen Eric Palacio stick that pass a few times (to include this same race), but I just wasn't close enough to effectively pass. Luckily, the Miata driver was courteous enough to give me a little room and avoid body contact. In the end, my race ended early with a blown right front brake lane that was likely damaged in my off road excursion.
