She did pretty well at Daytona ...

considering the team involvement in a 200 mile race, its not a perfect analog.

It's really good to see a competitive woman out there. Her husband - Josh Hayes is really cool also. I went on a track walk with him @ Road America last year and learned a lot.
I rode against Melissa in the GTU race there on May 1. She's agressive but very clean on the track. I wish her the best!!

Blew her motor in the first few laps. She qualified 5 seconds off the pace, so a good result was possible.

Sucked for her. She was in 26th place at the time I believe. What sucks even more is there was some sloooow- out there that finished and placed higher than Melissa.
