@ 22:23:xx 949 is one lap down but four seconds faster lap time than CJ.

Good luck guys, this is a nail biter!

It really is! I cant stop glancing at the live timing. Plus they are so close to sub 2:00!

Edit: Of course as I typed that, they ran a 2:00.540

Huh, did anyone else realize we are racing a MLB pitcher's team? That's pretty cool!

Nice! I looked at timing every few hours and it was always close.

My parents were here this weekend otherwise I would have come and watched.

Default 949 at T-hill

Crusher looked extremely fast all weekend, and none of the drivers seemed to put a wheel wrong. The 949 pits were very well put together and it was always a beehive of activity. Congrats Emilio and all the 949 crew.

Crusher ran very clean with very few unscheduled mechanicals. Super and Kitty both look like hammered **** after the race taking tons of contact pretty much everywhere but finished really strong at P6 and P4. Nemo looked pretty clean sitting in the 4th bay all night.

I could write a 500 page novel about 25 hours in that garage but for right now I'm still frickin exhausted.

I just slept 16 hours straight. That was my first enduro of any length and... Damn. What an experience. Maybe I should have started with a 6 hour lol. Huge thanks/congrats to Emilio, William, Andrew, and all the other guys that made it happen. Say the word and I'll be back next year!

Also, after 4 days I think I successfully put a name to almost every face, but I still don't have a clue about screen names on here. For those of you who were there, post your name/job.

I just woke up after a long flight back to Florida. The race was awesome and I learned a lot. Nemo had a deathwish that race and no matter how much we tried to keep that thing alive it finally quit.

All of the driver's did a great job. Thanks to everyone at 949, Andrew, and anyone else that was integral in making this happen. I will gladly do it again next year if I can.
