180 laps at Richmond in the books! I expected a fun, aggressive race and that is exactly what I got...for the first 100 laps. Started 25th and drove up to 17th by the first caution on lap 27. The car was so tight off of T4 and the competition so good that it was tough to make up spots. Thanks to a great pit crew and a good adjustment, I came out 8th. Got myself up to 6th and that was it. We had a 6th place car and nothing more. Tight racing, bump-n-runs and all sorts of fun was had, until the yellow at lap 100. Caution came out during pit stops trapping some a lap down. Lappers proved a problem for 6 yellows in a row. Take the green, get to the backstretch, try 3 wide, end up in the wall and back into traffic causing big wrecks. 6 times in a row. Thanks to this ridiculousness only 18 cars finished the race. The last yellow fell just right with slow traffic that I was able to get a gap over 4th place and I came home a solid 3rd. Lola Macalister won her third race of the year. To give an idea of the green/wreck/green/wreck. I only led ~15-20 green laps but had the lead for all those yellows. I finished the race with 43 laps lead.
Next up is Kentucky, hopefully this race doesn't turn into a farce like the last two.
I don't have time to do full races or anything like that, so when I get the chance I take some older cars for a spin. Here's the 2007 NNC mod taking on SBP06 Dega. Racing back to the line, this was the best race to the "checkers". Margin of victory? 0.007. Seems like a replay of Ragan's win here in the Nationwide Series! (I'm in the 5)
