He was very smart to move to the back so that he wouldn't loose it at the start when everyone was bunched up.

Actually, I'm sure he was thinking "this is pretty boring" for most of the race as nothing was going on until the last 10 laps. Well that is except for all the RCR/DEI engines blowing up and a few cut tires that caused a couple of fender benders.

I wasn't too thrilled with everyone running in a straight line 3/4th of the race. They need to figure out how to mix it up with the COT.

Hey I wondered what it was you meant to post on the other jv post is this it? There's more on you tube some tributes he sound like he lived "fast". Warning don't watch them if you don't want to see an "unhappy" ending.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
