It was definately a long and hot weekend for the team. All 4 drivers did their best and I wanted to thank each one of them for putting in the hard work.
Alex Pfeiffer- Another tough weekend for Alex. It seemed even tougher as most of the other cars are continuing to get faster while the Z seems to be less stellar each round. His first qualifying run was clean but the Z just didn't hit the minimum speed requirements to get him into top 32.
Taka Aono. Taka was probably the biggest surprise as I simply could not understand how he did not make top 32 with his qualifying runs.
Cyrus Martinez. With a decent run into top 32 he was paired up against JR Vaughn Gitten on Saturdays main event. The battle was a good one but Cyrus couldn't beat JR and advance into top 16.
John Russakoff. This was probably the most interesting story of the weekend for team Megan Racing. John was very confident coming into this round rechecking every detail on his motor after having engine problems in Seattle.
During Thursday's practice, he starting having engine problems again. He lost compression in one of his cylinders and decided to head back to his shop in California and bring back his other engine. After the lengthy trip, he managed to get the motor in and make a qualifying run. Unfortunately, he spun on his run and failed to qualify into the main day
I wanted to thank our sponsors for their support and I hope to get better results at the next round.
See you in Irwindale.
