Topic: First ever shared Organizer's Choice!?
Speedycop & the Gang of Outlaws would like to share the Organizer's Choice award we received at Gingerman with our brethren from team Gute Bier, and their magnificent blimp! Those guys came to me Friday asking if we had tubing for a second driver's door bar so that they could get through tech. They offered to help with our Impala rustbucket in exchange for me cutting and welding in said tube. We got the better end of that deal, because their whole crew of six guys spent more time helping us than I spent on their car. They were invaluable! They clearly spent hundreds of hours on the new blimp theme, and it TOTALLY KICKS ASS!
I see why Nick had a tough time choosing this one. They clearly spent more time planning and building than we did. We spent more time (over 24 hours round trip) driving to the track, and we spent about 18 hours thrashing to get the car prepped from scratch, even with their help. Lemons staffers have to make tough decisions every race, and this was one of them. It could have gone either way and been justified.
To that end, and given the collaborative effort between our two teams this weekend, we ask that the Lemons powers that be change the official record to reflect a first-ever shared Organizer's Choice. We will send Team Gute Bier $250 as their half of the winnings. They received the Heroic Fix trophy as well, so we each have a trophy from this event. We think this is the fairest way to recognize all their hard work, both on their car and ours. If anyone has contact info for them, let me have it please, or send them this link.
Lemons HQ, is this okay by you?
