The boy swept his third race in a row, taking maximum points, and his championship rival had car trouble all night finishing last in each event. Unless something magic happens in how they compute points, we think that we came in second by a mere 2 points (over 13 races, with the top two scoring over 1,100 points each). Ugh....

We're pretty sure the season is over, but there is one race to go, kind of "for fun". Fingers crossed that they'll find some discrepancy way back and need to have a race-off (a la Cars)...

If not, that's a great way to end the season. Congrats.

Very good. Closing at the end is a good thing.

So did he get to drive the SLK for a victory lap yet?


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Congratulations! Best way to finish is to finish strong. I mean, if you work up to second it is a great achievement. If, like Hamilton last year, you work down to second, the season is a real disappointment. He obviously improved over the season and will bring new skills to next year. Sounds like a tough, competitive young man. Something to be proud of, QBN. Jim
