During the fourth round of qualifying the team lost their best engine to a catastrophic explosion on the top end of the track.

We beat him off of the line, but loosing by a little more than a thousandth of a second is pretty frustrating. It could have gone either way, but I know we will be ready for the last race of the season coming up in two weeks in
