Carson and Lauren Scheller Get Off To A Great Start
After suffering some valuable time loss as a result of Carson using more than the pavement as a road course (Meaning he went off) the #433 Ford had lost a big lead in Original Panamericana Class. They did get the car repaired and back into the race but it still needed some more parts. Based on what I am calculating the times for the top four cars in his class this is summing up to one hell of an exciting finish. All of them are friends and some of the greatest LCP friends on the face of the planet.
This is what Lauren posted on her blog this morning...
"I don't want to talk about yesterday.
Fast forward to 6am this morning. More phone calls to find the ball joint that we need (ours broke when we crashed 2 days ago, among the other things).
7am. We find the part from Renee from Tumbaburros Racing. Renee is awesome!!! Part put in.
7:45 take off following taxi to get to starting arch. Stuck in traffic to get to arch. Ran up hill with car chip to get time card. 1 km at 8000 ft is not fun!
Just finished La Bufa and passed the two cars ahead of us. The old Vicky is feeling good again!
And my odometer is working again and that makes me a happy girl!"
Based on my personal opinion, Lauren is indeed a lady but she may have started this race as a girl but by the time she reaches the finish line she will be a woman. ;)
