Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

HOLY COW....WAS THAT A NAIL BITER AT THE END 3 LAPS!!!!!!!!! Collin said his front tires were going, Lewis said his back tires were going. What a display of car control, the TV feed does not really show it. I truly have not been that wound up for a long time, we were watching in the turn 7/8 bleache...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

Glen survived to finish 24th out of 36 cars! He was on the lead lap too. Fog cleared and sunny, hoping for more heat for the "tire war". Signing off for awhile now, final run down to the race....we are heading off to either the turn 8 bleachers or, I may watch from the exit of turn 10, fastest and s...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

I slipped into the Lewis pit and got a picture of the car. Fog is starting lift, I hope to warm up soon.

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

Morning world. Really cool and foggy at the track this morning, T2 race just finishing. One guy is leaving a 60 foot strip of rubber as he does big slides through turn 10 at 100 mph....impressive. Just fueled up the car, waiting to bleed brakes and put on NEW tire reliefs.. Got woken up at 4 am by C...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

Final races of the day were for the most part uneventful. Good racing, I shot some high quality video of first laps, have to figure out how to host/post. Was very privaledged to meet another long time competitor of Collin',s Jose Rodriquez, driving a Mazda RX7. To listen to the two talk about some r...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

Spec Miata, 48 angry, pissed off hornets blazed around, what barn burner, great race and do those boys know how to drift at 95 mph, all in pack. The 3 Goodyear engineers came around to check Collins tires.....they looked like kids to me, very smart people though. All good in tire wars! Next race is ...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

GT 2 race was good, battle for first was just that, the second place Camaro finally past the mustang...and then the race gods took out the mustang! Sound was awesome, cannot imagine what the noise would be like with NASCAR, you would need double ear protection. Did I mention the barbecue fire last n...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

People were so friendly and just invited us in and said take all the pictures you want. We spent over an hour in the one shop. Some of the guys have been here since the beginning and know all the famous drivers. Hot day here. The old NASPORT crowd threw a dinner party in the pits tonight, that was t...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

Another incredible day, saw motoring nirvana today. Races were ok, but not quite the big fields here for some of the classes. Spec Miata should be a good one and the GT 2 race is also running. Saw my friend Glen in his Spec racer, overwhelmed by the level of competition and struggling with car set u...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

Race update:

Found the track....no problem today.

GT 1 race was a bit of a parade, Mike Lewis in the Jag just ran away with it.

Troy won.! Joe Huffaker went out on first lap, no idea why. Paul was back in the field.

Cleaning up car, bleeding brakes, valve check, zillion other things.
