UPDATE: Broken right rear shock was the handling culprit. D'oh.
See more info below ("show more") - 2011 SCCA Runoffs. Class: SCCA Enterprises Spec Racer Ford (SRF)
Driver: Denny Stripling
Qualified 23rd, ran as high as 9th, finished 11th. Earned the Sunoco Hard Charger award. Rear-facing camera in upper left hand corner.
Welcome to my Runoffs experience. I didn't qualify where I wanted due to missing half of the week, having mechanical issues during my two qualifying sessions, and subsequently over-driving my ill-handling car trying to make up for lost time. Nevertheless, making up 14 spots during the race was certainly exciting and enjoyable. Before the race I made a fuel pressure adjustment that turned out to be ill-advised as I felt like I had less straightaway speed than I had during qualifying the day before. I made significant changes to try and loosen the car up and it worked... too much in fact in the carousel which killed me on the longest straightaway.
Overall a very fun weekend and some pretty entertaining video as a result. My brake pedal started to soften about a third of the way into the race so I had to push my braking zones way back (like an entire marker in some spots).
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.

100MPH wreck, 25th to 1st - TWS in a Spec Racer
Hey subs! I think you're gonna like this one.
100MPH wreck/spin, 13 cars passed in the first lap, 25th to 1st in a deep
field in 12 laps total.
Oh and some Star Wars Easter eggs if you're into that.
Props to RightThisMinute who grabbed this video and captured the essence
This is a 33 car field. Going into T1 on lap 1, the cars on either side of
squeezed down before I could get out of the way causing a sizeable wreck.
My car suffered a fair amount of cosmetic damage (still working on it) but
surprisingly was drivable. After that, it was just a question of "how far
back up through the field can I get?". With national champion level drivers
at the front of the pack, I surprised even myself with the results.
Enjoy, and don't forget to subscribe!

Formula Ford Random Crash
Some random FFord clips for you, taken from old TV recordings and tapes. If
anyone can tell me who the flying driver at Phoenix park is I would love to
know, I remember reading about these two start incidents in Autosport but
can't remember the year or drivers, but it will be between 1991 and 1994 I
Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.
In Car Race Cam~Riverside International Speedway
Sportsman 100 lap feature race held at Riverside Speedway in Antigonish,
Nova Scotia on Sept.16,2011. Camera is mounted in the number 55 car driven
by Dale Richardson. Loss of power in the motor forced Dale out of the race
after just 41 laps. You can hear the engine fluttering when accelerating
out of the turns early in the race and got progressively worse.
Racing action - 2013 June Sprints Bonus race, last lap, SRF
This is the last lap of the 2013 SCCA Road America June Sprints Bonus
Majors race (that's a mouthful) between Brian Schofield, Craftlogic
Racing's Denny Stripling, and Scott Rettich in their respective Spec Racer
Fords. After running in a three car train collaboratively until the last
lap, this video shows how the action unfolds. My car had gone very, very
loose and that cost me exit speed in each of the corners. The final
betrayal was in the last third of the Carousel when the car stepped out on
me several times killing my momentum and allowing the 61 to mow me down
going into the kink. After that, it was an easy draft pass for him... but
the racing wasn't over. :)
In the end, I got loose exiting T14 going onto the straight yet again and
that eliminated me from contention.
Hope you enjoy!
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!
March 11, 2012 Road Atlanta Miata Crash - NASA HPDE 2 group
This 2003 Miata Shinsen Edition was a brand new build by OPM Autosports in
Cumming, GA. They installed cage, seat, Schroth 6 point harness, SPA AFFF 6
nozzle fire suppression system, radiator, brake lines, tow hooks and much
more. They also oversaw the painting of the interior and hard top. Their
workmanship is beyond reproach. It really was the coolest looking track
Miata I had ever seen -- which makes this story so sad (OPM also did ride
height, corner weights and alignment for Spec Miata class and provided
track side support for this NASA SE event). I was in HPDE 2 group (one step
I waited three months for the build to complete. I promised myself I would
not wreck on the very first weekend I had the car back but ... I did. I hit
the inside wall after T3 pretty hard. Personally, I think I went to full
throttle too soon at T3. If I had just waited a few tenths longer until the
right rear tire had cleared the curbing before mashing the throttle, I
think I would have been ok. It's a painful lesson.
Here are pics of car after repairs - better than new!!
Spec Racer Gen3 at Texas World Speedway - the future of Spec Racer!
Hey subs! Check out the future of the Spec Racer class. This is a lap and a
half of Texas World Speedway in the new Gen3 Spec Racer. The Gen3 version
sports a new engine and engine management package that really bring the
chassis to life. The end results of the transformation are a vastly
superior Exhaust sound, 20-25 more HP
and ft-lbs of torque over a 1000 RPM longer curve, and upwards of 150
pounds saved at the rear of the chassis.
In this video I'm driving the Spec Racer Sports Gen3 out of Houston, Texas
in a test session at TWS. The car was on older tires so I couldn't drive
her 10/10ths and we were a bit rushed so we didn't have a chance to get the
pedals set correctly for my legs. As such, braking events caused my knee to
hit the steering wheel. With a bit of test time and some dialing in for
personal preferences (every driver is different), I think the Gen3 could be
3.5 seconds per lap quicker at TWS which is mammoth.
Note the red/silver Gen2 SRF that I chase during the full lap in this
video. He was the fastest SRF on the track at the time and is a very good
driver. Note how quickly the Gen3 caught and passed him, even with some
ham-fisted (footed?) driving on my part.
Vintage Racing - 1950s Indy Cars startup and race. LOUD!!!
Chris Ashworth records a series of 1950s Indy Cars at Michigan
International Speedway. This was a vintage racing event that was associated
with the Concours d'elegance of America, where these cars were on display
after this event.
This event was incredible! I got to wander in the pits and the garage area.
You will hear these cars starting up right from the tailpipes, and you will
see them driving on the track from the pits.
