My goodness but this was a good weekend. Especially great for me as my friends both on and off the track had wonderful results.
James “Hinch” Hincliffe, even with a bobble or two, still managed to pull off a pole, two podiums and regained the championship points lead.
My friends at Jacombs racing enjoyed 1st & 2nd on the starting grid and 1st and 3rd on the podium! My buddy Tags hoisted his first CTNS trophy on the top spot of the podium. Woohoo! Such a wonderful result for him and the team and a great momentum builder going into Montreal next week! It will be off the hook!
And then there is Paul. I am floating on cloud nine right now. I couldn’t be happier! Seriously. I’m pretty sure I held my breath for the last half hour of the race. As much as I would have loved to see him podium, I’m just so proud of him for racing hard and clean and just doing what he does best… drive the fucking wheels off a race car. He was beaming when I talked to him after the race.
Today I cried happy tears (privately) for Paul. He deserved this. We all did.
OK… must decompress. More later…
