    Yes, the P cars are FAST. When we won the PII Class in 2001 it was 78 degrees at the start and dropped to 38 degrees by 8 pm. It rained on/off for 17 hours, talk about constant tire changes with the unpredictable, ever changing weather conditions. Still one of my greatest experiences, talk about running on adrenaline.............

    This is such a looooooong race, especially during the time when you're standing behind the pit wall and it's cold and wet and dark. You can go back to the motorhome to rest but the anticipation and adrenaline never allow you to ever relax. I spent most of my time snoozing in the pits................

    Even more was Justin Bell's commentary on the incident-and driver: "Those transmissions are sophisticated, but they aren't idiot-proof."
