First I want to apologize to Terry. On lap 28 he and Oscar were having a good race for the lead while I was very close behind. Entering T2 Terry ran really low allowing Oscar to pass on the right and I, further back, had good speed (I was running boost 5 at that point) and thought I would do the same. Terry came back up the track after Oscar passed, which was totally his right, but I could not slow down before hitting him in the rear taking him out of the race. Again very sorry.
German and I tangled wheels a few laps earlier (L22), again coming out ot T2, and that caused him to spin but neither of us touched anything hard and it seemed like I still had speed when racing continued. Other than that if was an amazing first race. I think at every yellow I changed boost strategy starting the race at boost two and then going to boost five for a few laps and in the end running every other boost (1, 3, & 4) thinking it was the fastest way to get home without running out of fuel. In the final race laps Juan and I were running 1st and 2nd, swapping the lead, until the final yellow with 5-6 laps to go. A strange drag race to the checkered flag and I luckily held the lead.
The Swift I chose to race this season seems to love Pocono. I don't know why but I hope it holds for a few more tracks.
Great to see the new racers too, and thanks again to Art for putting on this race series.
