Thank you. Turn 6 is probably my least favorite turn at Road America...that dip always gives me trouble.

Yes, it is I wonder how I got there. Someone must have passed me down the straight into 5. Remember what happened in the carousel that lap Wink. Here are a few pictures to remind you.

I just figured I musta been holding you up. Your pic doesn't show, but I think that is when you passed me in the carousel.

I also noticed that in that first pic, it looks like you actually turned in earlier than Ron or I. You were probably more on the apex that lap than we were.

you getting lazy with that 1k?

Throttle and a quicker entry speed would help too.
