Team Resignation Wins the Heroic Fix Trophy at the Rod Blagojevich Never-Say-Day 500

More detailed information to come, but the short story is that we grenaded the motor after about 75 minutes of racing. We replaced it with the engine from Alan's daily driver and then ran it all day Sunday with no major incidents. We finished 66th out of 87 entries with 217 laps and had an awesome time the whole weekend.

We don't have any pictures from our drivers/crew/friends/etc. yet, but you can see pictures of the event at the links below:
