I have officially qualified for the Runoffs, which are September 19th – 25th at Mid-Ohio, through the Majors Tour path. I have six race finishes over three weekends to meet the requirements - technically my Sunday race at NOLA where the engine failed counts as a finish because it happened with two laps to go.
With 2nd and 3rd place finishes at the High Plains Major, I am also now good to go for points as well. With the pace of the RX8 in the first races at NOLA, qualifying this year would not have been a problem. However, it has been quite the scramble replace the broken RX8 and get the Corolla on track in time to qualify. I finished 4th in the Mid-States Conference Majors points standings in T4 with 115 points. Next year, the goal will be to win the championship!
