Since everyone else is breaking parts before the Ford Race..

I was suppose to go racing this weekend, but had to work Friday and didn't get everything done in time..
Since weather outlook called for rain, I figured I'd do "more in depth" maintenance on car...
As I was checking spring pressures... I found this........

That's what mine were but more like 250 passes. Laughing sometimes I think it's just bad luck,or good bad luck when you catch it like this.
