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.

Follow the Craftlogic Racing Spec Racer Ford piloted by Denny Stripling

55 miatas in 12 minutes - sebring 2011
driving a 350z touring car, started behind all 55 miatas at anSCCA national
. I have nothing to be proud of for beating them, but I am proud of some
of the crazy moves, patience at times, passes for most without affecting
their race, and all without a scratch on my car. Well, ok I must admit I
dragged the underside of my car on a few curbs....
1965 Sebring 12 Hour Grand Prix - "The 12 Hour Grind" - Part 3 of 5
This is the third video clip of five dealing with the legendary 1965 12
Hours of Sebring Grand Prix. Jim Hall and his Chaparral won the race but
they had great competition from the Ford GT40's of Shelby American and the
pseudo factory Ferrari team entered by FORA or Ferrari Owners Racing
Association. Half way through the race a huge deluge of over five inches
of rain strikes the track inundating everything.

challenge from Rettich's No. 17 Alliance Autosport/Springboro Car Wash Spec
Racer for the victory.
