Those M3s sure were pretty. And it was amazing how quickly Bell shot out into the a dominant lead.
We were there to cheer on my buddy Beau in the #128 NextGen Motorsport BMW. Unfortunately he was the first casualty of race, putting the BMW 330 he was driving face first into the wall coming out of turn 4. He was ok, just a bit sore and bummed.
68 my ass, I was melting. The coolest place was at the bottom of the corkscrew under the trees. Bell is very
quick. Shame about your buddy. On what lap was he in the weeds? I don't remember seeing it, I may have been walking across from the hairpin to the corkscrew.
