    Uhhhh, Szegedy led in the beginning because he started on the pole. Got passed by Alexander later. So how won from the pole position. The real story is how Hinckley had his drive shaft come through the bottom of the car in practice, put the car back together. Drew last in the 3rd heat, made the show, started 18th. The car was a bag of crap for the first 85 laps, went into the pits 5 times to get it right and with 15 laps to go came from 19th to 5th. And only was behind Pennink for 4th by 6″. The crowd was amazed. How the hell that dude doesn’t have a full time ride on a tour still is amazing to me. Without a doubt he is the best set up man, pure driver out there and keeps getting over looked by these kids who haven’t done anything but an also ran.

    In a nutshell, a Monadnock favorite (Hinckley) “steals the show.” Thanks “Knuckles” for putting this into perspective. And who would argue with a guy a-k-a Knuckles?…

    And why even post a pic of Todd with his whelen tour car? Talk about disrespectful to Mr. Stuart.

  4. Congratulations!!!!
