Carolina Motorsports Park Monster Memorial Time Attack

Ive been waiting for this CCR points race since the day I saw it on the schedule in the beginning of the year, Carolina Motorsports Park is about an hour and half outside of Charlotte in Kershaw, NC and ive wanted to race there since I moved to NC. Unfortunately most of that excitement went out the window in the middle of the drivers meeting, the skies opened up and the downpour began. Just as usual we race in any weather and of course I was in the first run group so we had a soaking wet course in the rain. On the first run I probably didn't clean off the tires well enough on the launch and the large puddles in the first two turns the car slid coming into the first slalom and pitched back and forth three times before I could straighten it back out. The track might as well have been iced over for the first three runs, but finally on my fourth run it was dry enough to get a good time. Unfortunately immediately after that run the downpour started again and the lightning followed, and sadly the event had to be called off after waiting in the rain for hours. Here are some photos and a video.
