The Concepte of Illinois #9 Phantom Nemesis was in the hunt last night in Pro Clone Medium at HBR Raceway. Very cold night. Nancy Ellison was so cold she couldn’t talk! Thought about not going yesterday due to lots of other activities (graduations and a big money race in Sikeston) in the area affecting the kart count. Glad we went. Ended up second but the leader got a pretty good idea that I was on his tail as I nail him hard in the butt in the last turn of the race. Didn’t mean to and if I hadn’t hit him I would have won the race. I wonder if I got “brake checked” to keep me from passing? I think maybe so. Regardless, should now be the points leader in the class. Yea!

From the outside pole to the rear twice then back to the front. One hell of a race!
