Love me some MX-5 Spec racing. I found out that you can map the gas and brake to other buttons on the G29 wheel. So I made the shifter paddles gas and brake, Triangle for shift up and Square for shift down. Anyone heard of Alex Zanardi? Consider me his slightly less quick third cousin twice removed. Yes, there will be a big blue handicap sticker on the rear of my car. Watch out.

Seriously, look out. I won't be able to keep as good a pace as before but this is still better than nothing.

Unfortunately. Doc said it looked like someone he knew that broke the same bone during a marathon. I think he was trying to say I wasn't staying off it as much as I should. Next appointment is Dec 2nd, because two weeks would have been Thanksgiving Thursday and they're closed of course. Gotta wait even longer...

I will race this Wednesday, for 1 last time. Next week I go to 2nd shift and will miss the rest of the season! Thank you for letting be part of something pretty damn cool, and I will see you all on Saturday...seeing how that is pretty much the only day I have to race. Thanks again for all the good times!
