Race Weekend 11/1/13-11/3/13

Post by Matthew on 11/1/2013, 8:49 pm

I think it's going to be a pretty tough weekend. First of all, we're headed to a track that we struggled at earlier this year. The car was just way too tight all day long. We tried adjusting air pressure, trackbar, and wedge, but nothing helped free the car up on the long run. The second thing, and probably the most detrimental is just the mindset I've got right now. Going into a bad track with only a 6 point lead is bad enough, but then there's more non-race related issues that are bothering me also. Of course I'm going to try to repress all of those thoughts once I'm in the car, but I should probably learn how separate my personal and professional life better than I am now. Well one thing is for sure, I'm going to give it my all, and hopefully we'll be able to bring home the win.

Just finished up a practice. The car was really fast early, but started to fall off about 20 laps into the run. It was way too tight on old tires. Clearly we're gonna have to make it happen early if we want to get somewhere tonight. Overall, we placed 4th on the speed-charts.

Matthew: We’re great on restarts, but the car isn’t handling well on long runs.
Ray: See if you can conserve more on new tires to make the handling last longer.

Matthew: We’re going backwards again. This thing just goes crazy on the long run.
