01/30/2010 - Race day! part 2
The pre-race festivities and the race start were diminished by rain, big rain. We change the car to a rain set-up with rain tires, a different engine map that changes the power curve and a little more rear wing. This can be quickly changed back during a pit stop. We are now two hours in to the race and it is now starting to settle down with the track drying. We dropped back from 7th place in class to last place do to a tire problem on a pit stop and a drive through penalty because we pitted out of sequence (Per rules). Paul started and John McCutchen is going in next. I will drive after Scott Russell around 7:40Pm, yes it will be dark. Please click more to view the photos.
