The other half is staying out of trouble in the races with traffic, flags, etc.

    Amir did a great job in the Supra, just ran out of fuel. He's running E85 and the tank just wasn't large enough for 25 laps around LS.

    Sorry about your race Brett, I know how it feels.
    Congrats to Bill, Chuck and Lee for the podium finish. Special congrats to Bill be finally bringing home the championship after all the rough outcomes in the racing the past two championship seasons. He showed what an outstanding driver he is this weekend.

    Congrats to Amir and Jim, too, although they both had issues in the final race after running strong in the Q races.

    Tough break Brett. I heard the call at the start. Then didn't see you after that. That's a bummer!

    Congrats Bill!

    I didn't get a lot of time to watch any of the Sunday races. I was kind busy trying to get my car working and up to speed.

    The car still runs and drives, but after the melee, the right front fender was cutting the tire. It was either pull in then or blow the tire later. The whole thing sucked out loud.

    I could tell you what to do, but I'm sure you wouldn't like it. Besides you most likely wouldn't do it...lol
    All kidding aside. @ 0:52 the incident that took out Brett happens. I'm sure there are many more. This is not my video.

    My video shows the top 3 PTE guys getting past a couple of slower PTD guys and me getting stuck behind them. Then I take a scenic drive (off road) around turn 6 to get behind the PTD car that let me pass. More fuel problems then a bunch of cars parked here and there. Then the wall in impound as I walked off to get my trophy. But I knew you wouldn't like it. So I didn't want to take up your time.

    I knew you're good for podium from looking at the results of the quali races but thought Jeremy is going to take it.
    When I saw Jeremy didn't podium and thought something went wrong for him... Then I saw the pics of his car from the race and that one was definitely screwed.

    Thanks Bill and Oli. Overall ran pretty well, some minor issues throughout the weekend, but nothing serious considering it was the second time out with the car. Definitely Amir proof, other than not having enough fuel. Video:

    Here it is. From the slowest guy on track to P3. Being there at the end is everything.
