TRD Ferguson - ChumpCar - Road America - October 20, 2013
Here's TRD Ferguson's start of the race on Sunday. We were able to move through the field pretty well until our brakes started fading pretty badly. The stock brake system isn't really able to handle the speeds produced by our new engine. At least a brake upgrade will make a nice winter project :)

The BOC Racing E36 at the 2013 ChumpCar Western Region Chumpionship in
Monterey. This is a brief segment from my Saturday afternoon stint. I chase
another white E36 for the first half then a Fox-body Mustang. The team finished 4th in the
Chumpion class (5th overall).

Green Flag drops at 7:44. The first 7+ minutes is a 2 wide formation lap.
Sunday start of the 2013 Chumpionship race at Road America. This was a
continuation of Saturdays Race. The race starts in heavy fog and damp
conditions. It's also damn cold and my hands are not happy. Should have
worn that second pair of gloves again like during the April RA race. It's
too bad the GoPro craps out, as Emitlaer, Mayhem and myself battle it out
the entire stint, turning pretty consistent 2:56-2:57 lap times with Mayhem
and I catching back up to the Realtime car and battling hard until they pit
for what I believe is a bad wheel bearing. Mayhem (Brent driving) also has
a couple epic slides through turn 1 that would have been spectacular in HD.
I have a few very close calls during the heat of battle. @11:20 #197 and I
almost trade paint. @25:35 and again @26:26 #421 gives me the chopper.
@33:00 we go three wide entering turn 5 and have a "moment". The local
yellow @ 13/14 (34:45) slows the pace a bit and spaces us out for a short
Road America LeMons, August 2012, Ryan Roberson, Skid Marks Racing
Day two, 1st stint. Lots of wheel-to-wheel racing with Launcha Splatos,
Dirty Rat Trap Racing, and Shitbox Racing.
11:55 first catch of Launcha Splatos (we race back and forth through the
1st 75 minutes of the stint, usually catching them exiting the carousel,
and then getting passed on the back straight!)
31:00 first run-in with Dirty Rat Trap (spent the next eight laps trying to
keep them behind me; fast car in a straight line, needed help in the
braking zones/corners; someone eventually figured it out as their quickest
lap killed SMR's)
43:10 into T1; contact with DRTR. Watch the carousel for the next 8-10
53:40 first wheel-to-wheel with Shitbox Racing; DRTR still around!
57:55 finally pass DRTR for good
59:59 around Shitbox Racing (good/clean driving by the way!)
L17 1:02:16 SMR's quickest lap of the race
L22 T1: Launcha Splatos around us again, and then us around them again in
L23 main straight, LS around us again and stay just ahead of us for the
rest of the stint (I think we pitted within a lap of each other...)
L25: 1:27:25 what about the blend line coming out of the pits!!!
L27: running on fumes and taking it easy (last lap)
