My Race 2 video is fun to watch for at least the first 5 laps.

 

Start 7th, Get bumped off in T5 - reenter in 18th spot, then get hosed behind when drivers try to go through the esses 3-wide, and come to an almost complete stop, and rejoin in 38th place

 

then it is a fun ride from 38th to 15th, and thereafter its a bit boring, until the last lap when Novak and I exchange places at Roller Coaster and again at Hog Pen

 

 

Danny it seems like your car was underpowered going up the esses, or you wasn't getting a good run out of 4.

It seems even with a good run you would be shifting to 5th kind of farther along or staying in 4th. 

Was that your 99 or VVT?

I notice that on the "approved chrome Mazda decal" on said vehicle ^^^ there is a background that was previously unapproved and payment denied. Does this mean because it is on the "approved" car that backgrounds are now legal providing it is behind the "approved" chrome?
Just wondering!

The last laps from Saturday and Sunday combined.

 

What an awesome weekend.  Racing was super clean between me and Alex.  Honestly, I wasn't sure how things would shake out with the level of talent that showed up.  I'm beyond thrilled to have won both races and finally at VIR.  It was great seeing everyone...on to the next one!

 

Nice job on both interviews as well.. You are getting this stuff figured out :)

Here is my race one footage, just got around to uploading it.. Not the best race for me, I had brake issues (pads glazed) and it seemed I was playing to much patty cake  :) .
