Our first run at the Speedway on Wednesday was really miserable. We crashed right into the first gate, which was meant to simulate a cattle crossing, and didn't go any further. Immediately the Discovery Channel was there to ask us how we felt about our dreams going up in smoke. Damned media vultures!

However we ran again this morning and the results could not have been more different. We grazed that first gate again, but went on to race around the track, through the tunnel, around the parked cars, around the tank trap. We don't have official results yet but it looked almost flawless. Rumor has it that we had the fastest time of any team to run so far. We held that honor for about ten minutes, then Stanford/Volkswagen made their second run and topped us.

I need to find a Simpsons sun shade.
