I tried all the tricks but was only able to manage 30th starting position for Nationals. Better than my first try 2 years ago but I was hoping for top 10. It will probably end up being 40th with all the call ups but if they go 20 across I will be second row.
My registration sheet did not come alive until 1:02:30 for some reason so others may have had a nice 2:30 minute jump on the action.
The race before the race has begun and I am pretty happy with 30th position. It is a long way between here and there. I hope for the best.
