Now that we're gearing up for Reno, it seems like a good time to recap T-Hill. Vital stats:
Finished: 78th place (of 114 teams)
Total laps: 168 (winner total: 335)
Best lap: 1:37.456 (best in race: 1:31.474, by Blues Bros Racing after their backhoe-provided on-site weight reduction.)
Total tows: 7
Miscellaneous casualties: Laz's ankle, which has not been quite the same since.
So, we were fast, and finished more than half the race! (Win!) However, it was only .5 laps more than half. (Lose!)
We figure this leaves plenty of room for improvement at Reno. A wide-open field, as it were.
We regret to inform that our arch-nemesises, Team Unsafe At Any Speed, finished 54th with 249 laps. Clearly, this is because they cheated.
They did, however, swing by to collect their specified stakes, an 18-yr Macallen. And we are happy to report that it was only moderately delicious.
When we kick your asses at Reno, we'd like to request a Glenfarclas 15 or better.
