Hooked and hopelessly addicted are apt descriptions!

Most of the spin is still a blur but my best guess is that both Brian and 924Sman are right - I probably early apexed (went wide), pinched in to "compensate", and performed the cardinal sin of lifting off the throttle. For those who have not been to CMP the "kink" is a truly more of a right hand kink than a corner, It comes at the end of a long straight and if done right is taken at full throttle. The consequences are rather spectacular if it is not "done right"...

As Z-Man pointed out courtesy and respect at a Drivers Ed are paramount. I can see where "red-mist" could happen, but I don't think it was a factor in my spin. By the time it occured Keith had gotten to within a few car lengths of me and I'd already made up my mind to wave him past at the next straight. I screwed up is pretty much the root cause...

Brian - I may be in a wheel chair come November, but I'll try to make it if I can.

Thanks for the good wishes, advice, and input from everyone!
