That was me! qualifying time at lightening was 1:28.340, practice on
saturday I dropped my time down to 1:25.808, then for the race on sunday i
ran 1:24.559, I had 3 laps in the 24's and the rest of the 12 laps were less
then 1 second difference minus 2 that I let the leaders by. they were within
2 seconds of fastest time.
