2,332, that's how many orange barrels Bob and I counted between my house and Cloverleaf racing. Admittedly most of them are in Ohio, but maybe if Michigan did a little more road repair we wouldn't need a four wheel drive off road vehicle to get there.
As usual, it was a great time racing with our good friends in Michigan.
First I'd like to thank Mike, Dave, Art and everyone connected with Cloverleaf for a great time and a really "great" race. The track runs a lot different than our track but it is still a great track and I think the results will confirm that. I'd also like to thank Rob for buying us a great breakfast Sunday morning even if he did have to kick an old lady out of her favorite seat to get the table he wanted.
I'd like to thank Dave for taking the time to set up my controller to plug into the track. I'd also like to thank Mike for the new NSR Moslers that he is going to send to all the racers as a participants trophy. He would have given them to us yesterday but didn't have enough of them in stock.
I'd also like to thank Cal, Dave and Paul for filling in and running with the Ohio teams. This year we've had a scheduling problem with some of our drivers. Thanks again guys. Hopefully next year we'll be able to fill our roster with Buckeyes.
If not we'd love to have you guys run with us again.
Now for the
talk. Even though Dave ran the fastest laps in the race and ran more of them I think if he would have tried a little harder the out come would have been different. I'm beginning to think he was a plant to ensure a Michigan victory. It's obviously a mass Michigan conspiracy to belittle, embarrass and offend the Ohio racers. Unbeknownst to you, it is impossible to belittle, embarrass or offend a buckeye. There is nothing you can say or do that is so low that we would take offense to it, so the jokes on you.
I'm also not sure you guys weren't playing with the voltage on Saturday to disrupt our timing on Sunday. I noticed that none of the Michigan drivers practiced on Saturday so they wouldn't get their timing screwed up. I can't prove it but I've been around Rob enough to know how people from Michigan think.
So now that we know all your tricks it's going to be different story next year. That orange barrel trophy will be heading south where it belongs.
So until next year you guys take care and we'll probably see most of you at the Michigan 24 where I predict a Buckeye victory.
