I'm a couple of days slow, but this pretty much sums up the race. we started 17th out of 28 utvs. i was pushing @mlee211
to a good pace on loop 1a, but we still got passed by a couple of cars in the first 5 miles. we stayed on our pace and by the end of the lap both of those cars were broken on the side of the track.
loop 2a was pretty rough. slow going, bigger rocks, and lots of up and down. we kept picking the pace up until we lost steering. get out and the outer tie rod is just sitting there. no bolt, nut, or misalignment spacers. cobble something together with a bolt too long and we are back at it.
i thought we were pushing a little too hard with a compromised set up, but we were able to finish the rest of the lap and complete loop 2a with no major issues.
we ended up with a 14th overall finish and lost about 15 minutes during the repair. it wasn't the finish that we wanted, but there were still some things to take away to learn from.
it is roughly a month until the next race in kentucky at @dirtyturtleoffroad
i have some work to do, but i'm planning to be there with my racecar to try and finish the @ultra4racing
season on a high note.
