Well we had another great day on the 2012 One Lap of America yesterday. 3 P1 finishes back to back spreading our lead to 90 points overall. There are still 6 events left before the fat lady sings, so anything can happen!

There was lots of dicing in the field today actually which made for some good racing. The number 15 car of SpeedConcepts stepped up their game and TIED Catesby Jones in the Forged Prepped GT-R this morning. In the second session they continued to put the pressure on them in the afternoon finishing just 4 TENTHS of a second behind. The SpeedConcepts GT-R is climbing up the leader board going after the Chariots of Palm Beach 2012 GT-R!! Should turn out to be an interesting battle for 3rd place.

In other news the AOK Networking GT-R of Bob Knoerzer ("NAGTROC CAR") driven by Co-Driver Derek Heim took SECOND place in the evening AutoX beating out Catesby Jones by almost 2 TENTHS of a second!! Very cool stuff! Great job to the new comer team of AOK Networking! Also proved to be pretty good for us spreading the points gap 5 points more between us and the Forged Performance car.

The had a 650 MILE drive to the next stop in Brainerd MN lastnight and are all pretty tired this morning, but we will march on!!

Here are the official results from yesterday's events, along with the final standings. We have TONS of pictures to post on our blog in addition to the ones here so check them out.

Little trouble in the camp.....


The morning event just got over, however it didn't go as usual for the TSM crew.

Coming to the end of the first lap Doug noticed the oil pressure gauge bouncing around and even flickering on the display screen. Doug being the technician that he is, instantly played through all of the scenariors in his head. The issue reaked of some type of sensor multifunction however it was not worth the risk. With not even one lap completed Doug pulled out of the power and finished the three laps remaining below 4000 RPM in order to ensure the engine was as safe as it could be. With our current lead giving up spots is much less risky then giving up the motor. After pulling in the pits after the session the oil pressure showed perfect even during a small full throttle pull on an access road. Some type of connection issue or sensor error is suspected.

While we feel confident that the issue is a trivial one Doug is currently in the paddock pulling the car apart enough to determine the problem.

I will update you guys as soon as I hear any word.
