Chump Car at Road America, Oct 20, 2013, Hollywood, Sunday Race Start, Front Facing
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
LeMons Car Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway (Sept. 24, 2011)
I attended the 24 Hours of LeMons race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on
Sept. 24, 2011, and had a lot of fun. I recorded hours and hours of video,
but boiled it down into this 5.5-minute video. I was there to watch my
brother (Joe Kovacs), who raced in the #71 car (a 1985 Mazda RX7), so there
is a bit of a focus on that car. However, I think it does a decent job of
giving the general flavor of the race.
I shot this with a Canon Vixia HF-S30 camcorder and used a GoPro HD Hero
for the on-car shots. I edited it with Corel Video Studio Pro x4 and did
the whole project in the AVCHD format.

SAAB 900 Rust Repair (ugly but effective)
This was a successful repair, with a whole race of abuse and a crash on it,
it's still in the same condition as when it left the garage. Hopefully my
schmuckness will be inspiration for you to go and fix up your SAAB, even if
you aren't a great welder. The rust kit worked well and installed with
little modification. This is a big load off my mind, the nightmares of the
wheel crumbling off have finally stopped.
