    We won 1st place in our class in our last race at Gingerman Raceway.

    With only 5 cars in class D, we had some great odds of finishing well!

    Day 1 we lost about 90 minutes swapping out a busted transmission. The input shaft sheared at the gear!? On day 2 our throwout bearing was starting to fail near the end of the day, but we held on and kept it in first place. Overall we were 11th. And for an "old American muscle car", we really held our own on this tight and twisty track.
