We arrived safely in Kansas City at about 5:30am at Hammerspace, slept for a few minutes/hours, and then headed to Union Station downtown to unpack and get the car set up. Teams were amazing, there was about 13 cars running throughout the day, necessitating two heats for most races.
The day started out with a head to head elimination style drag racing, which we were ultimately able to clinch first place to reserve a pole position start for the circuit race in the later afternoon. The circuit race was two heats, we started and finished the first round in 1st place. The second round was the top 4 cars from both rounds in a 15 lap shootout to the finish which we were ultimately victorious.
