Fall Brawl 2018
This past weekend I embarked on my final race of 2018 to Myrtle Beach for the annual fun filled Fall Brawl event. This track is always a blast to drive on. They get it super smooth and it grooves up as the days go along. The biggest challenge is picking the right tire for the right time of day and track condition. Overall In the morning and evening runs we were running clay tires (AKA Typo and Chainlink for me) and then on a midday sunny run if the groove was out then SLW was good. (Impacts were surprisingly really easy to drive and pretty fast too!)
On Friday afternoon/Evening we decided to do one qualifier to finish out the night as their was rain in the forecast for the weekend. In Nitro buggy I started off great as the first heat of the class and got onto a 12 lap pace. But I just got a little nervous for some reason and made a couple mistakes and dropped me back loosing around 7 seconds. I would end up 6th for the round which was unfortunate because my pace was a TQ one. :-/ In truggy I had a very unlucky start as a mechanic and marshal were standing at the end of the straight away as I started the clock and I got into them and cartwheeled off the track. I had another mistake on the next lap on my own and would have to setting for coming back to 3rd.
