Ask Jack: The Lightest Element?
A few weeks ago, I took the checkered flag at Mid-Ohio as the winner of the Honda Challenge class and was promptly directed to the scales for a post-race weigh-in. The tech crew pushed my Accord up onto the scales and the young lady at the computer shot me an inquiring look.
“Okay… looks like you’re at 3,176. What’s your listed race weight?”
“Three thousand even,” I replied, since that’s the minimum weight for V6 cars in Honda Challenge. She poked a few buttons on her laptop.
“Are you usually… this much overweight?”
“You,” I replied, “sound like every woman I ever met on an OKCupid date.”
