01/31/2010 - The Race
A race filled with high hopes and high anticipation of finishing on the podium was demisted at 1:45AM. It is amazing how the race will change through the 24 hour period; the attrition is one that shows Sunday morning with a full day of racing still to go... Only if we could have keep the Texas Heart Institute car running, I feel that we would have finished in the top ten. I was really impressed with my co-drivers and our crew; we were behind from the first practice session on Thursday and never really caught –up. This is a race that you need to bring your “A Game” to complete the task on hand, winning. Congratulations to #9 Action Express/Porsche DP winners and the #70 Speedsource/Mazda GT winners.
MonaVie was a big winner as well; their products were a huge success in the Grand-am paddock with the race fans and race teams. The Texas Heart Institute was also a winner with people from all around the country making pledges for a great cause. Thank you very much; your pledge goes a long way to helping Heart Disease. Please keep this site as a favorite as I will post more inside stories in the days to come. Thank you for your support and interest, I appreciate it. (Click on read more to view photos).
