Nope, didn't win. got 4th. could have done better, but I made a few driving mistakes. You can watch the A-main, but you will not see my car in it since the camera is following 1st and 2nd. Near the end, 1st and 2nd will lap me. My car has orange rims and an orange/green body.

The only time we'll see you get lapped....eh?

Good stuff, I like that big jump on the track. It looks to be a very technical track.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again. I see that we will be missing some of the southern skaters. The floor was just recoated as Eric said and it will make for some REALLY good races. For those who cannot make it we will miss ya, and for those who are coming, I wish you all the best of luck and have a safe trip.
