Racing: 2011 Runoffs SRF in-car camera

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). Enjoy!

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 well! http://www.rightthisminute.com/video/never-give-even-if-you-crash-100-mph Description: 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! Camera is a GoPro2.

SRF Racing Action at VIR, starting last!
Track: VIRginia International Raceway Car: SEI Motorsports Spec Racer Ford Driver: Denny Stripling I lost a motor on the test day and missed qualifying while I was hunting down and installing a used motor for the weekend. As such, I started dead last in the Saturday Majors race. 55 total cars, 25 SRF3 (new motor, 20+ HP, 100+ lbs less weight than SRF), 30 SRF so I started 55th overall, 30th in class. Lots of good passing in this one as I worked to get as far up the field as possible. I was not aided by the fact that we didn't get one of the spark plug wires on well enough which caused an arc and decreased power, an issue that got progressively worse as the race wore on. Make sure you at least watch the first 2+ laps that contain 22 of the passes! :) Oh, and at the request of many commenters I have now reversed the rear camera so it looks like a mirror. Enjoy!
