Rally Race, Day 2

The team is in incredibly high spirits despite only moving up one place through the second day of rally racing. We flew through the three timed sections with Brandon behind the wheel, and we saw none of the motor controller problems that we had yesterday. That alone was enough to satisfy us, but we had so much power to burn that we flew through the untimed stages as well. This caused us to finish the day first when we started sixth. We take pride in that the car continues to perform well in an NASC style race, and that we can run fast all day, no problem.

The racing crew has a reasonable chance of breaking in to the top three tomorrow with as strong of a day as we had today. Though, the timed sections make up such a small portion of the race that we really can not know how we will stack up against the competition. We can only wish the best for everyone and perhaps for a lucky break or five.
