We qualified the GXP in the #3 spot and the Camaro in the #4 spot. We had an air fitting going to the chute launchers break during the burnout in round one and had to shut the car off. But the rest of the weekend was Great. Way to go BDM.

I worked with John on the starting line at Gateway Motor Sports Park this year. I believe Kevin was driving one of the stick cars for the first time. They were at Gateway doing some testing. I also worked next to or behind David (cookie) the starter at the ADRL event at Gateway Motor Sports park on the starting line as well. John is one of the nicest guys I've ever met and the whole team is a class act. Good luck this year.
I was at the Gateway Event also. That's where John set both ends of the record. So close to each other and didn't know it.

Wish we could of met. The traction twins had the track hooking.
