Q: 3rd
Took an early spin, but managed to get a decent lap. For some reason I thought I got 5th

R: 6th
Had a pretty decent race and raced my way up to second at one point. Was running really well with the pack till a pit road animation problem cost me to lose a couple of seconds in the pits, which in turn caused me to lose the led pack. With this finish I have now started the season with 3 consecutive 6th place finishes, fact check me on this but I think this is the first time that someone has finished in the same position 3 consecutive times. Although, I wish it was three consecutive wins or top 5s and I am hoping that this does not mean I am cursed for the season. I just really want to finally break through for a win.

I hung at the back to start the race with all of the early cautions( plus wanted to get a feel for the style for my first race). There was a near wreck that caused me to get on the brakes to avoid and I lost the draft. Never recovered from that and just prayed for a caution to catch back up.

Qualifying is what it is since it was all about the draft. Lead the pack for a few and just could not get the flatout lap I hoped for when I fell to the back of the line.

R: 1st!!!
Really just wanted to stay patient and give myself a shot at the end. Got a little lucky with pit strat and was in the lead pack for the final run. Damn near was a casualty with War on the Legendary situation. I was going to help KDawg make a move to the outside coming out 4 on the last lap and swing down low to try for the double overtake if Zeke went for the block, but Kdawg spiked a few times on my screen and I was to scared to be that close behind him. In the end, I have to thank Nick for the push to even get me close enough to benefit from the pure dumb luck it was that Zeke ran out and slowed KDawg so I could steal the win. Hate to claim a vicory like that, but to be apart of easily the closest finish in PRL history was something to be happy about.
