    Was cool to see history made at the bowl. To be the 9th Gada to win there is amazing. Crazy that it took him so long. The time trials stunk and took way too long. Todd Owen’s woes continued last night. He is not having a normal season at all. That run that Sami had towards the end was fun to watch. She dropped like a rock after starting on the pole. Just another good night of racing. Not sure what long time fan is talking about wood fired pizza. There was not pizza unless I missed it.

  3. I want to say congrads to Adam. I work on his car and nobody deserves it more than him at this track. It still hasnt fully set in for all of us yet. Ive never been that nervous after ayellow on a restart watching with the crew. Thankyou to everyone who came to support adam and our team it was an awesome experience.
