So, here we are the final day. I brought some race gas home to sprinkle about my desk pad, have some Motul 300V in my coffee, and used a can of brake clean as an aerosol, to have some ambiance for the race. I have even opened the back door to get the cool air in, it is 48F. there so far this morning.

Having done a few Championship events in my life, I can relate to what Collin is going through right now, as they get ready to go to pre-grid. That was when I would be the most nervous.

In reality...Collin just left the pack and the cameras really just followed the others, with occasionally mentioning Collin. Kristensen was out quite quickly and Collin just pulled out a lead that was up to something like 50 seconds.

Collin lapped very consistently in the 47's then just backed it off for the last few laps, no need to burn things to the ground at that point.

I do not know how I missed Dave Patten, I looked at the groups but did not think I saw his name.
