June 16th: Friday, June 13th double
features are now behind us. The first feature went
as follows: we qualified in 13th place, started the
race in 13th position and finished in 13th
position, all on Friday the 13th. I'm really glad
I'm not superstitious, with four 13's, wow. With
only a few minutes between, the second feature went
as follows: since there was a brief rain shower we
were placed according to the points standing, 10th
starting position, I chose to start in the back as
the car had some starting issues and didn't want to
hold anyone back, turned out to be a good choice as
the shifter for 2nd & 3rd gears didn't want to
shift, therefore I pulled into the pits for some
help, as it is hard to really get good leverage
being strapped in as safely as I am. We finished in
14th place. After both of these features I have
moved from 10th in points to 9th.

parts, After Lisa and Rose meet Lisa was T-boned by
