I'll check everything out better tomorrow but I am pretty sure its okay it shut off pretty quick so it didn't run upside down. Necks a little sore but I am just fine good nights rest will take care of the g.neck.

I agree better driving should have stayed on the gas while I DID have it turned right but when I hit that first bump sideways and landed it jerked my hand I was just getting ready to hit third so I had 1 hand on the steering wheel I didn't stay steered right for the duration maybe I'll put a solenoid shifter on it so I can race it with both hands.

Wow

But hey, the dents give it character.

Seriously, just take a hammer to every other panel, rename it "boo boo", and finish the season. No sense letting a little body damage ruin your fun.

Then, when the season is over, drive it into one of those paintless dent removal places and ask for a quote.

Sorry about your mishap, glad you're ok.

I hated to see that Colt, just glad your ok.
Do you have a reverse pattern shifter? If not you will have to do like me and go with an air shifter, they are a lot more expensive, but either way you will love them, no matter how dry or wet the track is, they shift at the same rpm. I can hook you up with a good guy that will set you up.

David,

A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

and who cares,
if your winning your cheating, just ask the
bowtie guys

Hated to see that happen. That's two races in row at Wabash that a truck turned over.

I'm the one that was talking with you in tech line. Do you know what your time was? Looked pretty fast.

2.478 pretty good 2nd best first run But everyones second run was a little bit lower 2.4 got 6th anyway but still right there with them we have some pretty stiff competition I probably run the smallest motor in my class.
