Track Daze Summit Point Shenandoah Circuit May 16-17 2009
Track Daze HPDE event on Summit Point's Shenandoah Circuit, May 16-17 2009. ( trackdaze.com )
Some highlights from my weekend with bloopers at the end.
The car is a 1993 Mazda RX-7 Twin turbo, mostly stock with reliability modifications. It is still running on 17 year old OEM suspension with street tires. It runs at stock Boost levels on the original turbos and a stock motor. Brake hardware is original with Hawk DTC-60 race pads, which by the way, I am very impressed with. Despite its age, the car still holds its own against much newer hardware.
The crash on the wet skidpad was caused by the ABS system which prevents the car from stopping quickly in a spin. The car sustained no damage and the ABS was subsequently disabled so more skidpad and track fun was had by all ;)
Thanks to the Track Daze staff for putting on an excellent event and thanks for watching!
Wild Racing Action - 2013 June Sprints - Spec Racer Ford
Follow the Craftlogic Racing Spec Racer Ford piloted by Denny Stripling
through a crazy race including a botched start, a lap 1 wreck, a run from
13th to 1st, and some last lap chicanery (contact) costing me a shot at the
win. Never a dull moment at Road America with SRF's!
Make sure you watch in 1080p on the largest screen possible. Enjoy!
TCUSA at Summit Point Shenandoah Circuit
My favorite session of the weekend, lapping with friends. Kevin, Roger,
DaveP, ChrisP, George, JeffW, and others have appearances in this video.
Best lap was a 1:39, but after seeing how the yellow BMW takes the turns at
Pit In/Out, the data says I could have gone a couple tenths quicker!

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.

14-Aug-2011 TCUSA Summit Point Shenandoah with Michel LAbbe
A short session of lead-follow on the Shenandoah Circuit of Summit Point.
The in-car video from Michel's car can be seen here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZPAD833CRE This was the first session
where I experiment with a really tight line through turns 18 and turn 1,
the slowest corner on the track. Saves 0.3 secs and you can see how good
it works compared to the "traditional" line through there.
The Vette is a 2006 base coupe LS2 making 375rwhp. Long tube headers, high
flow cats, and Corsa Sport Exhaust.
Penske double adjustable racing shocks with dual rate coil over springs.
AP Racing brakes. Kirkey Race seats. Swap seats, tires and brake pads and
it's back to being a daily driver. Drove it to work two days after the
Summit Point weekend in fact.
