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....

Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Solo Autocross Racing
One of my runs at the autocross event at the Green Lot at Turner Field. I'm
driving my 1998 BMW M3 roadster with my camera strapped to the passenger
seat headrest. The cones define the course and dictate on which side you
must pass the cones. At 72 years old I am not competitive but it is a blast
to run the course.
2013 SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Road America
This is the 50th SCCA National Championship Runoffs H Production race as
seen from the #99 Toyota Yaris of Jason Isley. Started 5th, but it didn't
last long as things went bad in a hurry. In Turn 1 I received a hit in the
right rear corner from Chris Albin, who appeared to dip his right side
tires in the grass under braking, which knocked the alignment out of whack
- fortunately Road America is predominately right hand turns, and the car
still worked great in those, but the car picked up a big push in Turns 5, 6
and 8. At the same time two of the leaders, Tim Pitts and Jay Griffin, got
together just ahead of me. Luckily just as I recovered the car a gap opened
between the spinning cars, and I came out in 3rd place. However, a black
flag all reset the field to the previous order for the restart - back to
5th. About mid-point in the time shorten race things took a turn for the
worse, I had a run going down to Canada Corner and went for the outside at
Kettle Bottoms, Albin started to drift right, I went left and so did he. On
a prior lap I had passed him in the same place, on the left side, and I
guess he took notes and was not going to leave that door open again. The
hit killed the front of my car. With the front now flattened my top speed
was limited and the car began to overheat. Was happy to hold on for the 6th
and final trophy.
Speedway Motors 2014 SCCA Solo National Championships Music Video
Most spend their summer days soaking up sun shore-side, and 1,156 of the
most devoted Autocrossers nationwide gathered on the concrete beach in
Lincoln, Nebraska for the 42nd Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships.
Without an ocean for over a thousand miles in all directions, these drivers
made due with a sea of cones, plastic leis, Beach Boys Pandora radio
stations, and the return of the swimming pool on a trailer. Dubbed "Cone
Surfin' USA at the Concrete Beach", this year's competition generated tons
of great action, pitting the best of all regions against each other to
crown yet another round of champions.
While TireRack celebrated their 20th anniversary as the event's primary
sponsor, which stands as the longest primary sponsorship of any SCCA
championship, the CAM (Classic American Muscle) classes were brought to
Nationals for the first time, bringing a whole new crowd towards the sport
along with a new sponsor, Speedway Motors!
When the sand settled, many championships were decided by hundredths, even
thousandths of a second including Super Street, A Street Ladies, B Street
Prepared, D Street Prepared, E Street Prepared, F Street Prepared and C
Prepared. Closest of all was the class of our youngest competitors, Junior
B, with the margin of victory a mere 0.002, the second closest margin in
