"Our 4-1-12 Race recap

We were third into the first corner, with our new lower first gear i found it harder to carry speed from the 1-2 shift so we were not able to capture the hole shot.

Through out the first lap we were in slower b class traffic but managed to pick off about 5 of them.

coming up on the end of the first lap we broke a rear ujoint, we dont know if this was caused by axle wrap or loosing a cap due to a clip failing. Camron immediately ran for the pits to get extra tools and a spare u joint, while i remained with the jeep and started to get the rest of the old joint out. by the time we got the new joint in the leaders in c class were almost lapping us for the second time so we were close to two laps down.

When we got the jeep moving again it was decided that we were going to sprint to the end and not worry whether the jeep would hold together. At one point we found our self in third gear on the rev limiter driving down the old access road towards the back side of the quarry( bill can contest to how bumpy this is). The jeep help up great and we ended up gaining a lap and a half back and finished a few minutes behind first place.

2nd place was a great accomplishment after breaking on the first lap."
