It was nice to have a good, clean race and see some positive numbers on my safety rating as a Class A. I hadn’t run the Late Model for a long time and had done no laps prior to the warm-up, so was also pleased at my initial speed and line when on-track.
I’d joined without a qualifying time and would start the race in 6th place. Surprisingly I had the highest iRating, so knew there was a good chance I could finish well up the order.
I got a decent start (not as good as the leader though – he floored the throttle coming out of the final turn to start the race) and ran well, had no incidents and managed to climb my way up to 2nd place. My fastest lap, on lap 4, was a 22.607.
