This is Raw unedited Footage From the 2008 BPG Buick horsepower Nationals at
National Trail raceway,
You will see some cars not make complete or very slow passes, these are

DRW / Buick V6 Alky v3.2 20L video test
My first in-car video. Preliminary tuneup with a new combination. First

problem. Slowly, but surely making progress, though.
