Wednesday - Load In
I’m back in St. Louis; and man, this year had to be the hottest! My brother, dad, and I arrived
early in the afternoon and unloaded. We pitted with our teammate, Alex Lichliter, so with the combination of our canopies, we had perfect shade throughout the day.
Thankfully, we had a month in between rounds, so my car was fixed. I had a solid testing day the weekend before, so my team only needed to change the oil, go over the front end alignment, and put in new tires in the front. After that, we picked up the rest of the team and headed to the hotel to get a good night's rest.
Weds - Load in
Living in Maryland, this is the furthest FD round for us this year. 31hr drive one way. NonStopTuning teammate Carlos Arrieta lives only one hour away from me in Virginia. He has a dual car trailer, so I reached out to him about teaming up this round and transporting my car to Utah. Since I work for an airline, I was able to fly out my team (7 of us) and meet up with the Arrieta’s on Wednesday for load in. We meet within 30 mins of each other, which worked out beautifully. Utah Motorsports Campus is gorgeous. It is a HUGE facility. We got our cars out of the trailer, set up our tents, and bolt checked the car to prepare for Thursday.
