Big off into the mud - Turn 7, Texas World Speedway CW
After a weekend of driving on a damp and slick track, things finally dried up. Unfortunately I got a tad overconfident and had an enlightening off-track experience. Car is a bone stock '97 Miata on Falken Azenes
Super slow driver at MSR Houston
This was the first session of my first weekend at MSR Houston, with NASA.
I'm driving a Mazda Miata. The driver in the Mustang at the front of the pack is a
first-timer, and proceeds to drive very slowly (you can see the speedometer
sometimes reading 25 - 30 mph!) through corners then drag race the
straights. The 5 or so cars in front of me end up passing him without
point-by, because he wasn't giving any!! I finally get by him, but quickly
realize that my brakes and tires are still cold, and I end up in the
marbles. Luckily MSR is a pretty forgiving track. :) Note the number of
cars you can see in the rearview about halfway through - this guy made a
lot of people mad!!
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.

Obstacle Course #1 Mon County Fair WV August 2, 2013
Hillbilly Proud headed back to Morgantown, West Virginia for the 2013 Mon
County Fair on August 2 and 3. The demo derby was held on Saturday and
featured three finales with full size, 4 & 6 cylinder, and mini van / SUV
classes. The fair switched events on Friday night this year going with an
obstacle course for street trucks instead of a mud race. We love mud
racing but found ourselves thoroughly enjoying the street trucks hitting
the jumps and tempting the mud. We hope they have good luck and can grow
the obstacle course. The more variety in off road events around WV the
Spin at Turn 7 - Texas World Speedway with NASA TX
Drove at my first NASA event this past weekend at Texas World Speedway in
HPDE2! Had fun, aside form this incident. First time at the track, and
first track event since this past December. I had been following/leading a
guy in a gray S2K.
Basically, this was on Sunday and we were pretty evenly driving, with him
edging me out. I followed him out this session and attempted to keep up,
this is what happened. I was getting stupid sloppy (IMO) on the lap right
before the spin, even though it was my fastest. No damage to the car, but I
did pull some pieces of grass out of the front bumper and reattach some of
the side skit tabs on both sides yesterday!

Best track session of the day. My car, driven by my brother. Lap times are
2:05:47, 2:07:xx, 2:06:xx
Day one was a bust with balding rear tires and rain. But day two turned out
to be beautiful. Started to rebuild my confidence again so the lap times
aren't that great. By the end of the day I had just broken into the sub
2:15:xx. Fast lap of the weekend set by tanman311 at ~2.05.47.
