    Daniel O'Donnel took a bad spill off the high speed Turn 1. LTurn 1 is a really high speed turn that can make or break your lap, coming off the front straight you want to push it to the max to keep your straight speed throughout the turn. LDaniel caught a bit of the outer turn and lost it into the barrier. LDaniel was not injured at all and walked away from the accident. LAt the end of the event some of the drivers that won prize money, donated their winnings to Daniel. LAll of this went on as 98% of the crowd was watching top 16 FD qualifying as a true sign of class and sportsmanship. L

    Kevin Parlett's G35 from SOHO Motorsports ran a 1:48 in Limited RWD, Lonly ran a few laps and had some issues with the car. LKevin Parlett made his return back in the G35 that was wrecked last year at the same event. LHis day was really short with some minor gremlins so we never got any solid pictures of him on the track. L





    Tony Wiesenhahn's Subaru WRX faced some crank issues early in the day and never saw much track time after the first few runs on friday.
