My team towed our E30 ChumpCar from our home base in Atlanta to St.Louis to run the 14-Hour race at Gateway Motorsports Park. We came in with high hopes and were instantly dashed. 19 minutes in a rocker arm breaks. Our first in a year... Replace it in 45 minutes. Another one breaks in ~1hr30min. Fix it in 50 minutes. Four hours later another breaks. Replace it again in 45 minutes. It goes all the rest of the day until 35 minutes from the checkered and it breaks again.

The only savior was a fun 12 minute battle with another E30. Not for position. Against a friend. Against a car that I have raced in as a driver before. It made the whole day worth it... and we finished in 11th place.
