With all of the snow outside lately I have been watching a lot of racing videos trying to hold me over until spring. So I figured why not start a thread where everyone could post their favorite clip. Perfectly timed pass? Close finish? Awesome save? Whatever it is, post it here to help keep us all entertained until we can get back on track.

 

Here is mine. It was the last two laps of the last race of 2014. It was my rookie season and I really wanted to end on a high note after having a bad race on Saturday. I ran basically the second half of the race in P15. P14 and I were kind of in no man's land with a huge gap to the front and behind. Starting the final lap I was thinking there is no way I'll catch him and was kind of settling on P15. Then I got a good run out of T3 and the adrenaline started pumping again. I followed him through T4,5,6. It looks like on the 2-3 shift in between T6/7 his car gets loose just enough for me to have a good run from there all the way to T10. He chose the center lane and I went to the outside. My thinking (no idea if it was correct or not) was that if we go through T10 side by side I won't have enough speed to beat him to the line. So at the last second I braked enough that I could use the full radius of the turn to get a run onto the final straight. Watch the video to see the rest :) Last lap starts at about the 1:50 mark.

 

 

Your turn!
