This was a very fun race. I actually felt like we were racing not just trying to keep the rig togther. We started off the line with Bj Leing in his new to him u4 car, and knew he was going to take us off the line. so we decided to atleast put on a show and try to keep up. Well he didn't stage well so we actually stayed right next to him up untill it started to get rough and backed off. Still trying to keep up a little, we quickly caught up to Craig from a to z and then could see bills tail lights in the distance. We past Craig but then he past us back at the first rocks. We ended up catching up to Chris at the bottom of lower tailsman where he got sucked into a big hole and I think blew a tire but he was able to free himself and was off before we could pass. Bill then got sucked into a hole so craig and I found a way around. I was then able to pass craig at devils den and caught up to chris but even with his flat tire he was still moving pretty good. We then came up on the hill climb/right turn before affliction and there was a bit of a pile up with someone rolled. so we all waited our turn. With chris having a flat tire he had issues so he pulled off and change his tire. We kept going though the hard section of afflction, then to the fast section. Which was really fun but uneventful, was able to pass one person. second lap uneventfull except taking the hard line on affliction a one of the stock guys was stuck and winching and got stuck behind them. We ended up getting past by a few people that bypassed affliction so we sped up to try and catch up. One of them pulled over and the other was so far ahead that we couldn't even see the dust. So started slowing down a little to save the car. But still pass a few people. Then into the hill climb/ right turn before affliction on lap three we rolled. We got winched back over quickly and got on our way bypassing affliction this time. We were told there was only 5 or 6 cars still runnig so kept a moderate pace the rest of the lap but not quick onto lap 4. Then we had some issue at the spot where we rolled so a spotter had us back up, stop and let Lucas Murphy by lapping us and Bill passed too. Then it was back to racing to try and catch up to bill. We figure with such few people running and as many people as we passed we were racing for 4th or 5th. We didn't think we were going to catch up to Bill just had to stay within 30sec. We could still see the dust before it was starting to settle so we stayed on it. Seeing him a few times but then losing him. We finally catch up to him at the top of lower tailsman and stayed with him to devils den where he got held up by eugene and bunnys rig. So I took my only chance to pass cause I knew I wouldn't get another chance. The rest of the lap we stayed on it, but not to fast to make any mistakes. Right before the trail got tight twards the end of the lap we passed a stock car which bill ended up getting stuck behind. We ended only passing the finish line 30 sec. ahead of bill.
