Racing Mayhem - BFG Super Tour SCCA TWS
Texas World Speedway BFG Super Tour Major/National, March 11, 2012, SCCA
Driver: Denny Stripling, Class: Spec Racer Ford
Record rain day in College Station leading to some interesting racing.
Started on the pole, chose outside for quicker line through T2, got hit and
spun off on first lap. As I sat off track waiting for the field to stream
by (half the field was gone due to weather concerns - qualifying had
already been cancelled and fast times from the previous day were used for
grid), I was hit by another car in the LF wheel. That impact bent the
steering shaft significantly and caused a large toe disparity between front
wheels. This is clear in the video as the steering wheel is no longer
straight. After getting the car refired, it took about 10 minutes to move
back up through the field into the lead, which I was able to hold after a
double yellow and another 20 or so minutes of racing. A very entertaining
win in very challenging conditions.
All racers should note the steering wheel whip at the 00:55 mark. Even
though the impact is very slow speed, had I not let go of the wheel I could
have seriously injured one or both thumbs/wrists (this happened to me in my
first race ever where I tore a ligament in my thumb in a similar event).
ALWAYS let go of the wheel if it looks like your front wheels will take any
sort of hit (at least once you know you are past the point of saving the
car from the spin).
Thanks for watching!
