Rolex 24 now playing

Ford GT lagging in 5th place but was in first for a while.  A lot can happen though between now and the checkered flag tomorrow.  Here's hoping for some broken engine parts in the Porsche, GM and Ferrari camps. 

Richard E.

Wonder how many weight penalties they slapped on the Ford GT this year.  Too fast for its own good.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Woke up to see Ford GT in second and third on a yellow caution.  Lots of rain at moment.  The two Fords just need to destroy the Ferrari ahead of them.

Now the number 67 Castrol Ford (what a beautiful livery as well as the Motorcraft livery of the 66) is leading.  Kill them off Ford!

"Okay...wait for it...okay good, the lead Ford GT is pitting."

"Is he stopped yet?"

"Yes!  Do it now!"

"Gentlemen, we are throwing up the red flag.  We're very sorry, but we're calling the race now.  Thank you very much for your patronage."

"And in GTLM, we are pleased to report BMW first, Ferrari second.  Oh and Ford third.  Sorry Ford.  Better luck next year."

Wait, I just heard that the last leading car before the red flag is considered first according to Briscoe.  Some rule he is quoting.  Goes to the lap leader one lap before the red flag.  Let's see how they figure this one out with timing and scoring.

Well that's a wrap.  Third place.  Don't know why I get so invested in these races.  I don't even own a Ford GT.  But I still want it to win.

Meaning yes, hi, cool or just used when you have nothing to say. Not meaning word.

You are using the wrong dictionary.   ;D

The IMSA/Weathertech website is showing the result 4th in class, 13th OA for the no67 Briscoe, Dixon, Westbrook Ford GT.

Other sites (sportingnews & racingnews) show 3rd class / 12th OA.

There is some confusion with one of the Porsche's No912 getting flip flopped around with the No67 Ford GT.
I didn't watch the podium awards, so did the Ford crew make it up there for third in class?
