Day One Summary

We have just crossed in to Iowa west bound on I-80 in route to Pacific Junction.  We had a great day one finishing 11th overall.  Tomorrow is another day though and a different track - Mid-America Motorplex.

I had a decent outing on Autobahn taking the 22nd fastest time (there are 70 cars entered in the event).  Woody drove Autobahn and placed 37th.  Woody and Neil currently sit in 32nd place overall.

Our bellies are full as is the fuel tank so we'll trudge on for a couple hours before swapping seats again and getting in to a rythum of drive then sleep.  We have 282 miles left tonight with the GPS indicating an arrival of 1:06 am (assuming no more stops and our current speed of 80 mph).  I predict closer to 1:30 - 1:45.

Will sign off for now.  More tomorrow with additional photos and video.
