Congratulations to Mark Eaton and Robinson Motorsports for an impressive win today on the streets of Baltimore. Kudos also to "Libby" and Patrick Gallagher for the second and third place finishes. Way to go, guys!
Mark was hooked up coming out of the two slowest corners in a way that I couldn't match today. I had him on lap time yesterday for the start order today, but he was two seconds a lap quicker today than yesterday. I didn't have anything for him and could only manage the second. I would love to have had the win. Furuseth is great but he damaged the front suspension in turn four, but both Mark and I were catching him.
Great venue for a race and a very fun track. I will have video from the start uploaded soon.
Wanted to throw a shout-out for Mark Eaton...I see Cornbread already beat me to it. He was flat walking the dog on Sunday. Made me feel good that someone in an FE whose age doesn't end with "-een" won the National class.
There is no more deserving winner of a USF2000 race than Mark. He drives the tractor trailer, wrenches on ALL the RMS cars, just plain works his butt off all week, and goes out and shows us how it's done. I was pedaling hard as I could and if we'd had a couple more green laps he'd have lapped me And there's no more gracious, just plain excited about it, winner to be be around - I swear his feet never touched the concrete in the Convention Center paddock area the rest of the day Sunday.
Jim - great drive on Sunday...didn't mean to leave you out. I got nothing for either of you! Hell, you passed me like four times on Saturday - I'll still never figure out how I finished that race ahead of you. LOL
See everyone at VIR next week!
ENTROPY. It isn't what it used to be.
