Anytime the grader is on the track after the heat races, you the track is
in bad shape.  It was very rough.  Had to check up for other cars about
every lap.  After passing the 31B when he about spun out, he drove us
of turn 2 towards the back stretch wall a few laps later.  Car died and
wouldn't fire.

highside was just too fast.
