Go to the 3:05:00 mark and watch the F5 race.

I watched it live and again on the recording. Good race! I also watched the race winners interviews with Brian, Clint and Jeff. On the second viewing of the interview with Clint I had a completely different take on his race. Some have said he was "whining" about the setup etc. giving excuses for not winning. What I saw was an individual who was frustrated and very disappointed in the outcome. I saw someone who was pointing out to himself, as much as anyone else, the reasons he finished as he did in 2nd place. I've heard from individuals at the track that Clint really did have a car issue (suspension failure). All things considered I think Clint drove a hell of a good race and he should be proud to stand on the podium in second. However, knowing Clint he won't be happy until its the top step but I say great race Clint!

Hope to see you at the ARRC in a couple weeks.

I agree, Clint drove a great race and gave us everything that we could handle. I saw his suspension rubber failure after the race and it was a big time total failure of the right rear rubber. I believe this was caused by the extra heat load placed on the system from the relocated exhaust required by the sound requirements of the track.

I think that if they had not used up all of their time resources on fixing the sound issues that the race would have been hammer and tongs between Brian and Clint.

Kudos Clint, you will be on that top step, sooner rather than later.
