Look! Ben @Phyrexius  and I are partners! :-D

I wish I'd been on top of the videO sponsorship too and I'd have snagged it as well :-)

I should come to Indy for some lessons...

1. Only 3 races remaining to the season! What is your goal for the last stint?
My goal is to actually finish a race  :lol:

2. Mid-Ohio is not the easiest circuit. What are your thoughts on this circuit?
I like this circuit. While it is challenging, it is also very rewarding.  It is brutal in high heat because of all the off camber corners.  Those who can find the grip in that are doubly rewarded.

3. Do you prefer short or long track? Why?
I do prefer shorter tracks, but I'm not sure why?  Maybe it's because being only half a second off pace compared to 1+ seconds off pace from the leaders makes me feel better?   :mrgreen:

Pre-Race Interview
1. Only 3 races remaining to the season! What is your goal for the last stint?
To keep it smooth and clean... free incidents races, I cant ask for more!

2. Mid-Ohio is not the easiest circuit. What are your thoughts on this circuit?
I used to watch champcars running here, really nice to watch... after some laps this weekend Im wondering: How in the earth can the people run here?!!!! IS REAL CRAZYNESS! ... then Green Hell seems better after this.

3. Do you prefer short or long track? Why?
This layout is better I guess.

Guys, who will host the practice session?

Hi,

1. Only 3 races remaining to the season! What is your goal for the last stint?
Have bad Q session, that's seem the only way I can get top 10 in race.

2. Mid-Ohio is not the easiest circuit. What are your thoughts on this circuit?
It is a fun track, but really hard to have good laps on it...lots of tricky turns

3. Do you prefer short or long track? Why?
I don't mind, just love racing

Wow that was a lot of action! Warm up lap was short and sweet, not gonna lie I liked it! Dany I decided last second to follow you and your pit strategy, I wanted to get outof traffic, but unfortunately we got stuck behind more guys  :?  I very much enjoyed our many laps of batting, so much fun!!!

That was a lot of fun, but I'll be honest the warm up lap was too short. It caught a lot of us napping!

I want to say I’m sorry to Erik Luke, James LeBlond and can’t remember the other guys, I’m sorry for ruining your race.

Mathew Fraley did a stupid move trying to pass me when I give to him the inside of the turn and he hit me ...

...and I figured out too late that my steering was broken and I couldn’t get back to the the track in a proper way.
I should verify it before try to get back, again I’m sorry guys.

I hope race direction take some actions in order to prevent this kind of ****** in the first laps.

What an interesting race.

I think I need a new paint job for my car as I seem to attract incidents lol. From 8th on the third lap to 24th 15 minutes in to finish 11th.

Yea, will that is a lie. First off anytime I and other people have said the same thing are around you, all you do is swerve. I passed you on the inside and you hit me. Then instead of trying to join the track again, you simple drove across the track and t-boned me on purpose. Your right I hope they do, do something with you and all the wreckless driving you do every round!

Kid, I have the evidence of giving to you the inside line, I keep the outside, and I dont understand what the hell you were you thinking.

I wont say anything else about it in this thread, but please, try to do the same in the next races, I will be very happy to see you there.
