Thompson CT. Results

Post by mercsami »

Chloe had a very good result in Thompson CT.
She took first place on Sat.,drove away from the field. ASH.
Sunday,first heat,same thing,drove away from the field.
Sunday,second heat,she shut off the Sidewinder when she was milling before the start,seems the prop was free wheeling,her crew chief did not tighten the prop nut enough,the prop pin left the shaft.The prop will not turn without a shear pin!!!! I take full responsibility for this error.It will not happen again.This from the guy that covers all his bases.UGH.
ASR-4th. on Sat.
Second on Sunday.

Congrats! Fabulous job.

Don't beat yourself up too much--we all make mistakes. And, like you said, THAT won't happen again.

Joe and Chloe you guys are doing great. There isn't a team out there that hasn't had a problem of one type or another. Good teams like Team Sees tighten the nut and go back to work. Like Dave said "We are proud of you!"
