This weekend was interesting; after spending most of Saturday working on the fuel system for Kris' car, we got up at the crack of dawn on Sunday to drive to Cordova for the DSM Central Sport Compact Drag Challenge (an AMS event planned as a follow-up to last year's Midwest Mayhem event at US-41 Dragway in Indiana). We met up with Albert/Mel, Mike/Charlotte, Kris, Dan Lewis, Yusuf, Mike Reichen, Ian Koe, Nick Andersen, and a bunch of other folks, and watched a pretty good day of racing unfold; Mike and Albert won their classes (Street Modified and Quick 16), Yusef took second to Albert, and Dan took third in SM. As always, there was dinner afterwards, and a pretty long convoy of vehicles home. Yusuf's alternator gave out again on the ride home; of all the friends we met out there, he's the only one who drove his car all the way there, competed, and drove home. Everyone else brought their car on a trailer, or didn't compete. We're still waiting to hear whether Yusuf made it home, but the last I'd heard, he was on the phone with AAA, and he was well within 100 miles of home, so we suspect he's okay.
