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).
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
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.

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!

When Racers Where RACERS! Old Race Car Crashes www.RightFace.us
http://www.RightFace.us Change of pace video. Non political. Watch and be
amazed with old car racing footage from the good ole days. In the early
days of automobile raving they did not use seatbelts and roll cages were
not even thought of. One famous racer of the day, Eddie Rickenbacker went
on to fame as our leading Ace in WWI and then owned the Indy 500 race track
and was President of Eastern Airplines. Great soundtrack on this one!
Spec Miata Mayhem at Roebling
Nothing like the start of a Spec Miata race for crazy excitement. People
get shuffled out of order and it takes a few laps to sort things out. Make
sure you see the action at 2:20.
This is 5 laps from the Sarrc Invitational Challenge, the championship race
for the SCCA Southeast Division at Roebling Road Raceway near Savannah, GA,
held October 9th, 2011.
