Wild Racing Action - 2013 June Sprints - Spec Racer Ford
Follow the Craftlogic Racing Spec Racer Ford piloted by Denny Stripling
through a crazy race including a botched start, a lap 1 wreck, a run from
13th to 1st, and some last lap chicanery (contact) costing me a shot at the
win. Never a dull moment at Road America with SRF's!
Make sure you watch in 1080p on the largest screen possible. Enjoy!
CoTA SRF Race 1 85 cars!
Circuit of the Americas, Spec Racer Ford race from Saturday, March 9, 2013.
85 SRF's took the green flag and almost all of them saw the checkered. This
was the first ever SRF race on the track. The facility and the track itself
are amazing. Instant classics and among the best in North America.
This battle is between the top 4 cars, Stripling (camera), Verges
(blue/white), Futrelle (blue/black), and Harris (red).
This video shows all but one lap (Stripling leading, not much to see)
including all of the passes and near-passes.
Around 23:45 is where it all goes wrong for me. Radiator fluid on track, I
lifted when the leader hit it which caused me to tank slap badly, putting
me off the exit. That was compounded when my downshift to 3rd became a
momentary upshift to 5th. Then I thought we could go 2-wide into T20 but
that wasn't to be, putting me off on the astroturf for braking, which is
From there I just had to put my head down and run the top 3 back down in
two laps... you can see the results on the vid.
Hopefully the thought bubbles aren't too much.

Road Atlanta, the first of two Sunday races to finish the season. Franklin
Futrelle, of Augusta, Ga., and Tray Ayres, of Woodstock, Ga., completed the
Spicer's No. 65 Spicer Race Engines/Hagerman Engineering Spec Racer Ford
moved from third on the grid and into the lead by lap four, just in time
for a long caution period after the No. 90 Apple Motorsports Spec Racer
Ford of Bob Gilbert and the No. 81 Dinosaur Racing Spec Racer Ford of Mark
Vultaggio made contact, knocking both out of the race and spreading debris
across the race track.
race 2 Tray Ayres, from nearby Woodstock, Ga., earned a victory in the SCCA
Pro Racing Spec Racer Ford season finale on Sunday afternoon at Road
Atlanta. Scott Rettich, of Camden, Ohio, finished in the runner-up position

Gainesville, Ga., completing the podium.
Ayres started on pole in the No. 7 Ayers Racing Spec Racer Ford and led 17
of 20 laps in the race on his way to a 0.241-second victory over Rettich,
averaging 90.080 mph in the 50.8-mile race. Ayres also turned the fastest
lap of the race on the 2.54-mile circuit in 1:40.583 (90.910 mph).
The top two finishers survived heavy attrition and were left alone to
battle for the win on the last several laps, with Ayres holding off a
challenge from Rettich's No. 17 Alliance Autosport/Springboro Car Wash Spec
Racer for the victory.

NER SCCA "Summer Heat" 7/10/2010
Video of run group 3 shot from my 2005 Focus ITE #55, driven by my friend
It was raining most of the day, but settled down to a very light rain just
as this group went to grid. Since we did not have rain tires, Dave was
probably the only car on DOT slicks for this session.
But the track was far from dry, so here is some good footage of how to
handle a FWD racer on slicks on a soggy track.
The car is not prepped for ITE, it still has a basically stock 2.3L
Duratec engine, with a header and recalibrated ECU. New motor is in the
works, but the suspension and brakes have about 75% of the planned mods to
run this car in STU.
