Thanks Richard !!!....It was obviously a super fun event for me. The point totals don't have Buttonwillow where Niffenegger spanked me two weeks ago....we were at 69 Lee & 55 Stan then. With the two wins at PPIR, it's now 73 Stan & 69 Lee (I had to drop the 6 points from the 4th place at Fontana when the engine blew or I would have 79 points).I can only count one more win, if I find the budget to go seek it, as I already have two Out of Division wins (as does Lee). Where he has the advantage, and nothing can be done about it cause the SoPac season is over, is he has 3 wins in SoPac to my two. Unfortunately there are manyraces remaining in the National season all over the country, so it's down to whatever Lee or I can muster before Labor Day.
My budget only envisioned running thru this past weekend and then the Runoffs. I am now evaluating whether I could make it to the June sprints (or some other National) without jeopardizing the Runoffs or the medicalissues($) family experiencing....and then of course, there is the threat of what GM's future might do to the part of my income that comes from current operations (they already took 10% and med gap to medicare.....thank god I was able to sign up for UTEP's before retiring). So, sometimes I feel like I'm "fidling while Rome is burning", but it's been a great season for me regardless of what happens in the point championship.......I knew I had to get my s... together early in the season.
