WILD RIDE at my 1st Tulsa Shootout!

I ended my Shootout hope in wild fasion. Started 6th in D Main #2 and quickly moved to 4th before a caution came out. I restarted in the 4th position and caught the marbles coming out of turn 2 dropping me back to 10th.

I felt like I had a great car, a little tight, but one that could make the transfer to the C main. I had a great battle going with Noah Gass for the 9th position. I thought I had him cleared coming out of 4 but caught his left front sending me into the wall.

At that point all I could do was hang on and hope my safety equipment does its job. The safety crew at the track was right there when I landed and did a GREAT job!

We got the car back to the pit and assessed the damage. The chassis was good but shocks, front axle, torsion bars, seat and radius rods... not so much. I was also looked at by the medical staff which determined I had a concussion.

All in all it was a great event. I had fun, met some new people, and learned a lot. I am excited to see what 2024 has in store for our team!
