San Felipe 250 2016

February 28, 2016

It was a long day but we finished! We were leading our class until race mile 142 when we ran out of gas. We managed to get gas and broke the transmission. We got to the BFG pit and replaced: transmission, drive shaft, gears. We got it all back together but the clutch wouldn’t engage. We had to take the transmission back out and found the clutch and pilot bearing also needed replacing. We got going again but at race mile 232 lost brakes and missed a corner and hit a rock the size of a small car, then high centered on it. It took about an hour to get going again. We can’t thank @BFG enough for their help today. The pit guys were awesome, and relay followed us in. Thanks!

We are celebrating the life of one of our chase crew, Gene Bantilan, at the San Felipe 250 and dedicate this race to his memory. We’re hoping for a win in his honor. He will be missed. We hope he’s found the whoops in Heaven.
