Left Lane: Brandon Pesz Runs 3.628/208.91, Now #1; Best prior run: 3.685/206.13, Was #1
The Pesz work like crazy to repair the Corvette. It's reported that there was a blower problem, but the door delaminated in the lights and left the car.
The power is obviously there, as the Vette flies down the track to move the top spot even further away from the field. Looks like a lot more work for the team, as it looked like the left door blew off again in the lights.
11:21 p.m. Thats a wrap for tonight. Session four will start at noon tomorrow.
