New Jersey Motorsports Park - Day Seven (Part One)

We have awoken to another fine day here in southern New Jersey - bright sunshine, moderate temps, and a cool breeze.  Today's event is on the Lightning Course at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, NJ.  The track is rather short at 1.9 miles, but very fast with long sweeping turns.  Brian is competing against his dad today, so it should be really fun to watch.

Good friends of mine, Mark and Judy Keen arrived in the paddock and completely surprised me.  They reside in Audubon, NJ and made the short drive down to watch the craziness that is One Lap.  It is great to see them.

Greg Lindsay a BMW friend of Woody and Neil has also arrived having driven from the Washington, DC area.  Thanks for coming out Greg!!!

And now for the bet on Andy Hollis changing brake pads and camber on his little go fast Honda in 10 minutes.  From a wheels on the ground to wheels on and finished it took Andy 4.17.54 minutes.  After the right front was done, I put my $100 on the windshield and walked away laughing.  Way to go Andy!!!

Andy and Ann (his better half) have graciously donated the $100 back to ZERO - The Project to End Prostate Cancer and Neil Simmon made a matching contribution!!!!!  Like I have always said, the people on this event are the salt of the earth - simply wonderful and rapidly becoming good friends.

More after the first event.  Cheers!

Sounds like another epic day @ NJMP. Congrats to Brian and Woody for a well fought battle! Woody's HPDE experience paid off today!
