I had to work first and then race, so I was anxiously looking forward to racing in the fastest layout yet. On my first run, I realized that I have a long way to go as a driver. I have been constantly thinking about what to fix on the car, and it had kept me from focusing on improving my driving skill. The main issues on that first run was the fact that both valve covers were leaking at high rpm. They did this before, but I tightened them vainly thinking that they would be ok. But not too big of a deal, they just dripped oil on the headers and made smoke. The course was so fast I would have gone to third in may places, but I figured I'd just see how it went in second. I did a 98 second run, not great but the car ran fine around the course.
