Well the race was today...
Jeff (the driver) actually did a lot better than anyone expected (even himself). First thing for the day was the Pretty Car Contest. It'* free to enter, so we thought aw hell why not. And we won.
Got a trophy that says Alpena County Fair Bump N Run 2007 Best of Show
Then next was his heat. He started off kinda slow but by the end of the first lap he was in second place. Then a car rolled, so the race stopped until everything was okay. Then when they started again he pulled out into first, and was in first the entire race until the last lap about half way around the car started crapping out, and he made it to about 20 ft from the finish line, and it wouldn't move any further
So we fixed it up and put it into the Junk Heat. And that one is just for fun, just to beat the crap out of the cars. He only made it about 2 laps and the motor gave for good.
I'll try and get some pics of the damage tomorrow before we take it to the crusher.
