Apex Alignment Civic racing with FARA Homestead Miami Heavy Rain.
Danny Menendez driving the Apex Alignment #17 Civic in a severe rain race
at Homestead on 4/21/12. Poor visibility and limited traction led to a
small "love tap" with the wall towards the end of the race. Both driver
and car are ok and have resumed racing since. The weather was very bad and
got worse as the race progressed. Notice the fog on the winshield and the
water in the passenger footwell get worse!

2012 PCA Racing Round 5 - Daytona International Speedway: Championship Sprint
We had technical difficulties and failed to capture a much of the
qualifying or Sprint Races action in video. We did capture Saturday's
Sprint 2 which was the Championship Points Sprint, but we captured it from
the back! Rain and a thinned-out field due to earlier and race attrition
does not make for the best action on video, but I hope you enjoy it anyway.
SATURDAY QUALIFYING, SPRINT, & CHAMPIONSHIP SPRINT RACE
Following some front underside, splitter and flat-bottom damage in Friday's
Fub Race late afternoon, the team worked non-stop until the very last
available minute to barely finish re-assembling the heavily "stitched-up"
pieces, but confident that everything would hold. Saturday morning
conditions were wet/damp but improving. With me at the wheel all day
Saturday for the Sprint Races, we set out to make up for little practice on
Friday and try to start laying down some faster times to move up the standings.
Practice ended with the team leading the time charts in our GT5S Class
while ending 13th overall. The Sprint Race Qualifying session yielded the
team's fastest time of the weekend clicked in the 7th Lap to earn us on the
lead in class and 7th overall starting position.
In the Sprint Race, (Sprint 1 before this video) we took the green flag and
held our position while working on advancing a few spots. UNTIL... it
started raining. Everyone was on dry setups. It started raining on the
backside of the track while the Front Stretch remained semi-dry. We
continued to keep the pace in what was becoming an intense race! Racing on
dry tires while raining and keeping the pedal to the metal on the banking
at Daytona was just EPIC! They crew did a PERFECT job tellimg me exactly
what the rain was doing on their side of the track while helping me avoid
spinning cars and "reposotioned cones and markers" throughout. THEN....
the skies opened up on the front stretch as the leading pack, with me in it
were rounding the backside.... Jonathan hyper active (read screaming) on
the radio as car after car lost control on the front side and entry to the
pits, and told me there was 2' of standing water all over the pit entrance
already and there were more cars spinning than not! Following his
direction to pit, I start slowing down as I come off the banking and start
seeing the chaos! Even at 40-50 mph as I entered the pit lane I was still
going TOO fast! Hydroplaning all over but managing to keep control I had
cars spinning behind me that missed me by mere feet!... Meanwhile
Juan-Lopez in his 911 slid and spun abt 20 times the ENTIRE front straight
and managed to not hit a thing! The Race was red/black flagged and we
ended with a Class WIN and a 3rd Overall! But check this out: 38 Cars
started the race, only 15 finished!
The Sprint 1 lap times and finish gridded us on the Pole in Class and 4th
overall for the Saturday feature Championship Sprint Race in this video.
This race was a nail biter well before the green flag dropped.... With the
typical skies in Daytona Florida playing their usual afternoon tricks, the
team struggled to make a decision on going with a dry or wet setup! With a
semi wet but drying track, the skies looking 50/50, and the crew split on
which way to go (dry or wet setup), I leaned towards going with a wet
setup, and as Crew Chief, Jonathan made the last minute call to go with wet
tires and as much of a wet setup as we could squeeze in the few minutes
left before we had to be on-grid. The field was split with about 50% of
the competitors on a wet setup while the other bet against the rain. I
knew that without rain we would not last but a few laps before destroying
the wet tires. The radio silence while we waited for the race to start was
proof of the tension. We started moving and no rain.... but as we exited
onto the track for the warmup and formation lap, drops started to fall and
Jonathan broke the radio silence with his typical: "Ok, get ready Pablo,
this is what I want you to do...". The Green Flag dropped, the rain
continued, and without putting a wheel wrong, we took the Checkered Flag
1st in Class and and 4th Overall!!! Our 2nd Daytona WIN in a car that was
heavily disadvantage against the competition's.
