Looks like they reopened the front NACA duct in the center of the hood -

Stopped by Clarksville to give Larry his books and posters, it was a beautiful day and he drove his new Shelby GT 350. What a great car and a grate end to our trip.

I just received a survey of the event. I gave them all good marks (Acceptable for the food though). There was one mean young lady working there with Ford that I wasn't too happy with but everyone else was great. I didn't mention it on the survey but I can complain to all of you :)

No. 66 Ford GT (Joey Hand, Dirk Müller, Sébastien Bourdais)

Joey Hand: “The conditions were treacherous. I’m actually surprised we were qualifying in those conditions. You couldn’t even get through the Bus Stop. The Bus Stop is usually third or fourth gear, and this was first gear. There are a lot of places that were just not good and I thought we could’ve wrote off some cars. A lot of guys took it easy. Our main goal with this car is not really to throw down the ultimate lap in this first race it’s to finish 24 hours. We hate to get in a situation and get the car in the fence and have the guys have to work all night to just get a pieced together car to go race 24 hours, so our main thing when we left pit lane was to get it back in one piece and that’s what we did. We went out a little late. We then caught a red flag at the beginning, so we didn’t get our laps in the way we should have or could have. The good thing is, I don’t think the car is bad in the rain. I think it’s actually pretty good. We just had to really tip-toe in these conditions and make sure we had a race car come the start of the Rolex 24.”

No. 67 Ford GT (Richard Westbrook, Ryan Briscoe, Stefan Mücke)

Ryan Briscoe: “We only did one timed lap, so it was really a challenge. There was a lot of standing water and I was just trying to keep it on the track, to be honest. We got our timed lap and the car’s in one piece, so we’re ready to go racing and that’s the important thing.”
