    Well I was just doing normal things like I always do and my hand was doing pretty good until today. I was messing around before the race today and went to clean my glasses of all things. Sure enough POP there goes my hand, and I sent myself all the way back to square one on the healing process. So I mostly likely I will not be racing for a while unfortunately. Maybe I could be a live steward or something I don't know but even typing this is killing me if I don't one hand type it... :mad: Sorry I missed the race today because of my stupid hand... I will hopefully be up and running for the leagues but I'm not sure at this point now. I'll have to give it a couple of weeks to see what it's going to do.

    Just rest and take it easy, don't rush it else you'll end up in the same situation, its always great having you on track but not at this kind of expense :( hope it heals soon for you mate

    Get well soon Joe.

    I was wondering where you were as I hadn't seen you in the Skippy for awhile.

    Thanks guys I appreciate it. My father isn't helping the matter either... lol... I had showed him iRacing a couple times and he likes to have me setup a test session with the A oval car at Daytona for him. So now every time I talk to him he asks if I have a race tonight... I keep having to tell him "No, it hurts to ##$#!! much to turn the wheel". Last night when I talked to him and that same thing was said he called me a wuss... :tongue: I may have to get him an iRacing account now...hehe

    Lets see... autoclutch/blip, map a button to upshift, paddle downshift... steer with your knees on a straight to check fuel...

    seriously - rest it up and get well, we miss you ontrack!.
