    I had my first run of the season against a Jeep TrackHawk. In any normal race, I'd have lost. In fact, I lost to that same Trackhawk and driver just a couple hours later. But our first race saw him spinning and swerving all over the place, and he took the L. I ran a 12.1 and avg. 12.2s all day. He ended up hitting 11.4 when he dialed in his Trackhawk. We talked after our second race. He was really cool guy and I look forward to seeing him race more this season. Check out the videos below.

    Great race. Both trapped almost the same speed.

    We need to get a better launch control solution. We need a TCU tune STAT!!
