    Just like everyone else said, sometimes, luck isn't on our sides. You will get them next time for sure though. Qualifying that well and your previous races definitely proves that.

    Sorry about the bad luck but as you noted there just isn't much you can do about it. Sometimes all you can do is put yourself in a position to take advantage of luck if it comes to you, or you can get hosed like this time. Your attitude about the whole thing is something for us aspiring racers to look up to I think. Well done sir

    I think its time to spring for a real Head & Neck Restraint though!

    Yeah, that tow truck and driver is awesome, I witnessed it in action last time. It even goes sideways!
