Drivers prepare for long race

Despite being the same distance in length. Lime Rock has the distinction for being the road course with the highest lap count. Due to it's small size, Lime Rock requires an 85 lap race to reach the 130 mile distance that an ARCSOA Elite Series race runs. Despite this, lap times are pretty short around this track, so the race distance may not be as long as some drivers think.


Cavagnaro's last ride

It is a bittersweet weekend for Alan Cavagnaro. Lime Rock is his home race, however it is also his last as a full time competitor in the series. He is retiring from full time competition after the round of Connecticut, handing the #28 Ferrari over to Ryan Griffin next weekend in Illinois. Ferrari team principal, Luigi Giacomo stated to the media on Thursday that, "We will do everything in our power to give Alan a win this weekend. We are trying some experimental parts for the Season 20 car that we tested in Marinello a few weeks ago with great success. The #28 car will be flying on Sunday, just wait and see."


McKane/Shelly Rivalry heats up in Opening Practice, Pushanda banned both from participating in either 2nd Practice or Final Practice

If anyone wanted to see a real Motorsports rivalry in the ARCSOA Elite Series, I think we may have just found it. Nathan McKane and James Shelly once again did battle with each other during first practice. This time it involved James Shelly dive-boming Nathan McKane entering the chicane at the top of the hill. McKane retaliated on the next lap when he ran both himself and Shelly into the tire wall in Turn 3. Both cars were totaled in the wreck. The two drivers swept the top 2 positions in Practice 1 only to have their times wiped.

In a normal situation, both teams would have time to set up and practice their back up cars. However Vijay Pushanda, the series competition director sent a large message down to the parties involved. In a statement, Pushanda said, "I told you both (Shelly and McKane) that this situation ends in New York. It seems like both parties didn't take my ruling there. I parked them for qualifying, with the assumption that their races results wouldn't be affected in NYC. Obviously that was not harsh enough. So I am going to put them at a disadvantage for the race here at Lime Rock. If the two parties continue their petty rivalry, then expect a severe punishment."

Pushanda's actions don't look that bad here, unless you dive into it. Pushanda banned both James Shelly and Nathan McKane from participating in either of the two remaining practice sessions. Which is crucial because both teams have an unproven back up car they are immediately throwing into qualifying. Another thing teams will do is, if their primary car is totaled in practice, they can take parts off of it, and put it on the back up car. Even to the point of an engine if the engine wasn't damaged. Pushanda has also impounded both their primary cars, so therefore the teams can't steal parts from them to put on the back-up cars. This wouldn't have really affected Shelly's car, because his car was pretty much destroyed, however Discover Ohio probably could have salvaged some parts off of the #9 and put them on his back up car.

Discover Ohio Team Principal Kenny Myatt released a statement.
"I had talked to Nathan McKane, and was told the situation was done and over with at NYC. However when Shelly divebombed up the inside of him nearly taking Nathan and himself out in a really dangerous location near the chicane. Nathan felt the need to retaliate. Don't get me wrong, I am none to happy with Nathan right now. But, if James Shelly touches one of my cars again, he can meet me in the garage because I'll settle the score with him. And I don't give a crap about the possible penalties ARCSOA will put on me."

Cavy: Alot of love for the guys I work with everyday on the cars in the shop will be left after this race, I thank the Ferrari team principle, all of the guys that have worked on my car in Elites, and Matt Fox my longtime friend and Crew Chief. I have heard great thing about the car I will have at Ct as S20 parts which I am fine with, anyway to end my Elites career this will be a great way.

James: "Okay, now that wasn't the point. Yes, I did dive bomb the corner, and I realized my mistake at the last minute. That I can apologize about. But, Mckane Destrying my car, now that's just unacceptable. I have always respected McKane, but we are both championship contenders and right now I am losing my consistency. If he wants to wreck me, bring it on, but I am not going to be the one blamed. But I ask one thing, keep it on the racetrack, no one else has to get involved. Though in saying that, If I'm leading and you turn me, I'm coming after you."

Sandfer on Pole, Ferrari dissapointed in starting 2nd

Charles Sandfer grabbed the pole at Lime Rock while Alan Cavagnaro took the outside pole in his final start. Sandfer was reportedly elated with beating out the prototype Season 20 Ferrari. Ferrari Team Principal Luigi Giacomo was reportedly disgusted with the fact that he didn't get the pole.

"We may be starting on the outside, but we were the sure fire favorites for pole. How that little twerp in the D&C beat us I don't know. Sandfer was no where near the top of the time charts all weekend until qualifying."

Giacomo kind of hinted at it, but Charles Sandfer was absolutely no where all weekend. His best practice result was 28th in Free Practice 2.

Spoiler:
Pushanda tells Shelly, "See ya in California, don't come anywhere near here till then."

Prior to the race, ARCSOA chief steward, Vijay Pushanda outlined a code of conduct he expected from both James Shelly and Nathan McKane. Shelly still blatantly took out Vincent Allen during the race, so Pushanda slammed down the hammer of justice and reportedly suspended Shelly from the Rounds of Illinois and Australia.

Cavy: I was thankful for the great finish we got today, despite not winning I'm happy we ended the race like that, I had a 2 hour signing before the race for autographs and man there were so many people in line, more than Baskinger surprisingly. It was funny after a fan told me that I'm still mathematically in contention for the championship and we both started laughing, but my ride was good while it lasted!

James: Okay, I want to make something clear. I had no intention of racking Dj Kurtis. I respect him, even despite being punched in the face, And I did not mean for that to happen. I was breaking to let him and the 88 by, giving him back his lap, and I messed up, I realized that. I would gladly give my win to him. I am sorry to red bull, Vincent Allen, and everyone involved. I need to be punished, I do not deserve a championship after that.

Shock Jr: "...Red Bull should be banned as long as him[Shelly], let alone one race then. The driver code by ARCSOA is clearly broken now. Let alone, they are playing favorites now. You don't make things into a freaking Royal Rumble match. It went into a riot, and someone kicked me in the gut! And he was wearing a Red Bull uniform! I was already out of the race, I had to cheer a future teammate! I'm not happy, I'm hurt, and I'm checking to see if there was an injury caused by that kick."

James: Listen, ARCSOA, I did not want to start that fight. I was going over to apologize. Honestly I should've parked the car after the incedent, and discussed it, but I wanted to at least finish the race. But Kurtis should at least have handled himself with or dignaty than that. Also, Mckane has better get a big enough lead, because I am coming after him in 2 weeks.

Delic: I really hate driving sometimes. We were wrecked in practice, then again in he race. Then, some red bull guys attacked my wife (Amy Shelly) outside our hauler and she got a black eye. Man, red bull dragged everyone into it. Yes, she was wearing a cathenix shirt, but she was an innocent. Red bull needs a penalty, maybe for at least a race. Also, I don't hate Riuciu, but sheesh, there was no need to take out Mckane. I think it was retaliation for the wreck between Shelly and Mckane in practice that I was caught up in.

I wish ARCSOA could see this, see this resolution, and some answers. Now."

Shock stay out of this because you should not be getting involved and for Delic, don't try anything either.

Red Bull Owner: Due to the action after the race, the crew cheif, pit crew and engineer have all been suspended for next race. They will be replaced by the crew of the 02 car that is runned by Rodalfo Omega. As for Allen, this is a warning because I can't say I'm proud by I'm on your side with the situation. Just do not let your actions take over you. Do it again or you are gone for a race. Understood?
And going off topic, great job by DJ Kurtis with the win here today!!!!!
