francine upset

it can't ever be all good, can it?

I was having a really nice night that just went all to hell.
we're both so bad about always having to be right.
I wish i could have stayed longer, and left on a better note.

I've got to be up really early in the morning for the race, and i don't have any clean pants.

we didn't suck this time

The races today were fun, and we actually did pretty well. There was a moment of slight panic in the pits this morning, when we couldn't get it to start. Thankfully, it turned out to be an easily fixable electrical problem, and all was well.

It was hot ... broiling, burning, cook-eggs-on-the-asphalt hot. And silly me, there i am under the car, getting hot oil dripped on my face, and trying to figure out exactly why i enjoy it so much. It's a full day's work in the sun to watch that car spend six seconds going down the track, and it's totally worth it.

Anyway, 5.957 at 234 MPH, we're qualified #5 right now. Two more runs tomorrow.
