What a GREAT week, Spending time with Herman this week ha been one of the best parts, but I'll have to tell you this 150+ MPH down the front drag strip at Brainerd and taking turn one on a track I had never heard if before not to metion never seen before been on at well over 100 was pretty exhilarating.
And by the way, just in case anyone ask if we would do it again, we are already making on a list of what we need to do for next year..... The top items on the list are... #1 BRAKES, #2 BRAKES, #3 BRAKES, #4 MORE Horsepower believe it or not.... We didn't bring a knife to a gunfight, but we did bring a .22 caliber to a 50 CAL machine gun fight.. With some of the factory teams and hired gun drivers along with the years of experience there from some of the other one lappers that have been doing this for over 20 years, we have a long way to go or a lot of money to come up with to finish well up in the overall. But I have to say for a " one lap pup team " which is terminology for rookies. we fell pretty good overall considering we had never driven any of these tracks at speed and the one that had even been seen was Hastings that Herman got visit.. We have transitioned from "one lap pups" to "one lap dogs"
I do believe that One Lap of America is by far is the best way to see many tracks in a short time to get a quick glimpse of some of the best tracks in the country. Can't wait till it hits more that we haven't seen yet.
Stay tuned as when I post videos I will be posting links here on the blog along with as many more pictures as these prior postings have all been on the road and typing in the passenger seat of DWT with just a few hours of sleep which hasn't the most convenient.
