Went out in the 1st, red lit with a .499 ****! Also broke out went a 6.92 with a 1 on a 6.94 dial. Crap! Dropped the 60 to a 1.52 with a 2.
Bought back in... Got back in the tree with a .533, broke out went a 6.90 with a 7 on a 6.91 dial... Damn, 3 thou, took the stripe though.

It felt strong, just has older tires. It usually pulls 1.40 or better on the footbrake 2 step at 2500. Last 3 runs were in the far lane. Track hit a peak of 132 degrees also making traction more difficult.
