All things considered, today was a pretty successful day on the track. We were easily turning hot laps for a good portion of the day; we believe we currently hold the track record.
Although the team qualified the car relatively quickly and early today (we were the second to do so), we have been plagued by all sorts of electrical and mechanical bugs ("features," as we sometimes call them) that have hampered our progress in the race for pole position. After getting Jeff qualified on our 70th lap, all of our drivers and the car were cleared to drive in the race. We elected to pull the car in to the pits and fix as many problems as we could today, since having a good car on the road Sunday is a lot more important than starting first.
After a marathon effort by electrical and mechanical teams, we put the car out on the track with about 2 hours to go on the day. We turned as many laps as we could, and then charged the car for the evening.
Currently, we stand in second place (Michigan is in first), and expect to keep up with the competition with minimal pitting tomorrow.
