[s-cars] UrS weight datapoint/Summit Point National Event

Highlight #3 - Bruce changes underwear post-session after realizing Bob
might not slow down for turn 1 from 135MPH to 50MPH, and I might merge my
car with his in the process.
All while politely declining his late friendly passing signal, not knowing
at the time why he gave it to me! One hand politely waving, one foot
standing (STANDING) on the brakes, and one, um, interesting experience. :)
Man, Bob, thank god that was a rear line and not a front!
93 S4, clean underwear
