Default Yours truly on TV, maybe (Grand AM on SPEED, 4PM EST Today, June 22)

Gehs,

The Grand AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race from Mid Ohio will be airing today at 4PM EST on SPEED channel (or network, whatever it is).

I might get a decent amount of TV time in the #92 HART Honda Civic Si, I might also get none. Without ruining it for anyone, I will say I should get some TV action but I can't make any promises. Sometimes they cut out some of the best stuff when editing the race from 2.5 hours to the two hour TV slot.

Anyway, check it out if you have time, or DVR it.

Cheers,

Luke

I lied, the race is being shown tomorrow (Sunday, June 23rd) at 4PM EST.

Today is Le Mans coverage and Nascar qualifying...

We changed the transmission after qualifying, the night before the race.

Someone forgot to plug it back in during the trans install...

Unfortunately they cut to a commercial break about 30s before I get smashed into by the idiot in the Nissan who was a lap down. He hit my right front and right rear wheels, bent the outer-tie rod on the RF and caused crazy alignment in the front.

I basically limped the car around the track the rest of the race, ended up 19th after leading the race for 30-40 minutes...

Oh well, better luck next time I hope.

You gonna be driving at Indy? I'll likely be there - will keep an eye out for you. Paddock area sucks for you guys - nice gravel lots.

I'm currently not scheduled to drive at Indy but I'm going to lobby pretty hard over the next couple weeks to get my butt in the seat.

I'll be there either way, and yea the gravel kind of stinks. Last year we got a spot right on the edge of one of the roads so our spot was more like 1/2 gravel. 1/2 paved. We probably won't get so lucky this year
