Oregon Trail Recap…

DAY THREE:

Coming into day three, there was only about a 20 second gap between 4th-7th place in the MaxAttack! race… it was time to step things up.  The stages on day three were VERY fast… a few times when I looked down, the speedo was over 120mph (which is not correct, due to gearing, but still puts us over 100mph on twisty gravel roads).  Steve and I were on, and stages 14 & 15 felt very fast.  On the last stage of the day, I was feeling a bit TOO confident, and came around a right 4 over crest a little bit too hot.  With exposure on the driver side, the rear end of the car was almost off… when we regained traction, we were shot back across the road up onto a bank and narrowly escaped rolling.  Coming back down from the bank, we bent the rear end (again).  The rest of the stage I was a bit unnerved, and the car was shaking at high speeds.  Regardless… we finished the day, and the race… 1st place in G2 on day three!

RESULTS:

- We ended up with a 4th place finish in the MaxAttack! series, taking home $800!
- Steve and I were awarded Novice driver and co-driver of the event.
- 3rd place finish on day 2, and first place on day three.
- 2nd place finish in G2 regionals, over all three days.

Not bad for our fourth event!  Now it’s back to the garage, with only a few weeks before our next event in North Nevada.
