Bernard Cooley trophied (4th) in A Mod at Nationals!!! Grin

In at total of 6 runs each over two days it looks like Bernard had one first run dnf (spin?) and no cones and Gene had one bad first run with cone. 10 clean fast runs out of 12 for the car!!!


I can hardly wait for videos and stories!!! Grin

FYI the cars/drivers which beat Bernard all have years of A Mod Nationals experience including National Championships. We are talking SERIOUS and frequently big bucks competitors who have been at the A Mod game for years, or even decades. For Gene's car to do so well is significant. For Bernard and Gene to drive so well under what may have been wetdry conditions is something they should both feel really good about.

Yep. Donna grabbed 4th. Looks like she was 2nd on day two.

Terry Baker grabbed 5th in FS.

Junior is sitting in 2nd in ASP in Rod's car after day one.

I never been happier about finishing fourth in my life... The car did pretty good, they were very fast courses, good surface (when dry) and flowing design. The motor fluffed a plug on my fast run Tue. but it managed to clean out by the finish. I was happy after day one and was hoping to maybe jump up another spot on Wed.

Wed. about 1 hour before we ran the bottom fell out and the course was almost underwater. Everyone on grid was changing to rain tires. We don't own any rain tires. I knew we were in trouble if the rain didn't stop, fortunately it did. The course was in full wet conditions on our first runs and we were off the pace. Still the course was drying fairly quickly. On our second runs we found some more traction and I was back in fourth overall. By the third runs everyone had changed back to slicks. The first half of the course had a dry line, but a few turns and the finish were still very wet. Every time out the course conditions had changed. I ran at the end of our run group and was sitting in 6th place after everyone else improved on their third run. I needed to pickup around 4 seconds to get back in the trophies. I managed to pickup 6 seconds. Wish I had videos but the camera isn't waterproof and the spray on the lense probably would have ruined the video anyway.

By far the most intense autocross experence I ever had.
