Team Cardiosport Koni Challenge Race at Barber Day 1

I just got in to the hotel in Birmingham, AL for Cardiosport's 4th race of the year in the Koni Challenge series. Last year, driver Terry Heath qualified on outside pole at Barber, but we were moved to the back of the grid for a FR camber infaction. The Grand-Am stewards measured our LF camber at -3.2 deg. (rules mandate -3deg. max), but our guage registered -3 at the shop so it was a tough break as we were certainly not trying to violate the rules. However, we know we have the pace to compete with our 997 at Barber so with good strategy and improvements in tomorrow morning's practice, we have high hopes for Sunday's race. We have changed team structure since our last race at Mid-Ohio and this will be my first race at Crew Chief so it should be an exciting weekend.

I flew down to Alabama after work today which makes for a long day. We are heading to the track at 7 AM so I need to get sleep. Look for Cardiosport in SPEED's coverage of the race and root on the 07!
