It's funny that you mention the Fiat. There was an Abarth running in G-stock with the rumor floating around that it got on two wheels two separate times. I didn't get to see it personally, but I did watch some runs, and there definitely didn't seem like there was much on that inside from wheel on hard cornering.

Anyway, thanks guys. I just got back home a few hours ago after another 1700 miles. The rain on day two was not a factor for any class or run group. In a perfect world, on day one, I don't think there was any way that my car could have matched Greg Reno's time. I think the two main points that put me at a disadvantage on that course was the sharp right hander after the back slalom, and the ring of fire at the end, which the narrower Mini didn't have to squeeze through it. As far as day two is concerned, I do believe that my car would have been able to get fast time on that course, but I would have had to do everything near perfect.

Though, it was only my first trip to Nats, I was originally disappointed in the results. I was hoping to run out of there with a new red jacket, lots of new tires and contingency winnings, and my picture in the next Sports Car. But after I reflected on it, I'm still pretty happy for a podium finish.

As promised, here are some videos.

Day 1 - I'm not sure if this is my second or third run. Apparently one of my runs didn't record.

Day 2 - This is my third and technically fastest run. My second run was a faster dirty run which I liked better, and would rather show you, but it requires a lot of editing which I'm too lazy to perform. So here's my third run that's good enough to simply upload. The lines I take are horrible in this run.

And on the way home, 40 miles outside of Lincoln, I got hit by a deer.
