God was providing parts and people to help with minor repairs 10
minutes prior to getting on the grid. I received a penalty for short pit
stop violation because of a stopwatch problem, but I made an
awesome pro pass under the bridge at turn 12. Thanks to God,
thanks to my wife and family, thanks to the organizers and
volunteers, and thanks fellow racers for a fabulous first race
weekend! Yeehaaa!
