Still bummed.

I still can't get over the fact that i failed to move on past the top 32 in Las Vegas.
I feel bad that the team worked so hard to get the car together in one night after we had the head gasket incident only to find myself lose in the top 32 battle.

Once I got home, my mom told me i need to practice tandem.
I always believed that after i qualify for the tandem rounds, i would have no problem keeping up with the lead car as long as i did not self-destruct.
That's the problem. I tend to self-destruct. That's exactly what happened when i was following Tyler.

After the sweeping left turn, Tyler pulled a small gap on me so I was rushing to get back next to his door and that's where i made the mistake. I pulled in too fast and close that I did not have the space to brake. Also, his smoke is outrageous. I can't see anything past his tire smoke especially with the sun in my eyes. But that's just an excuse i came up with.... The real reason is the fact that i am lacking practice.

The RS-R Scion Toyo tC is definitely progressing forward. It gets easier to drive every event. Reliability is not much of an issue any longer.

I havn't felt this down in a long time....

Anyway, its already over so i must move on and think positive.

Don't stress it, dood. I watched vids of your runs on youtube and they looked sick. Especially your entry, nice and aggressive, so keep it up! Some tandem practice, some corolla practice, and you'll be all set for Sonoma! You're overdue for a podium finish, I think. ;)

Good luck out there!
