2013 Oct Mid Ohio Race Course - SCCA 1 Hour Endurance Race Crash - Spec Racer Ford #25
Spec Racer Ford #25 works it's way from back of field (no qualifying time)
but cannot get around an RX7 with a pretty good motor. While trying to
avoid the spinning RX7, SRF 25 is t-boned by the RX7. The beefy side pod
protected driver from any injury other than to his wallet. Note the 1st
lap where same RX7 "appeared" to force another SRF off the track just
before the keyhole turn. Just my imagination or not? Would like to hear

Daytona Double - Rum Bum Wins Season Opening Race
by Matt Cleary
The No. 13 Rum Bum Racing BMW M3 driven by Matt Plumb and Nick Longhi won
the season opening race for the GRAND-AM Continental Sports Car Challenge
at Daytona International Speedway. It was both a dominant and thrilling
performance from the squad that was clearly the team to beat. The result
makes the team two-for-two in Daytona race victories, having won the 2010
running of the event in the team's debut race outing.
Longhi led the two and a half hour race from the pole, but it wasn't long
before he needed to ease up. The first full course caution came only four
laps in, followed by another after only two further laps of green flag
racing. Having fulfilled the required 30 minutes behind the wheel to score
championship points and looking to launch a competitive fuel strategy,
crew chief Joe Varde called him in from the lead for fuel, four tires and a
"I started the race comfortably making sure that I drove cleanly and
smoothly. I was able to open a gap without pushing too hard, but the two
yellows gave away whatever lead I had," said Longhi. "My job was to hand
over a clean race car to Matt with a bit of a margin if possible. We
managed one out of two. But for me I was thinking about the championship
and the big picture so I didn't take any risks, just tried to keep it up
The yellow flags would continue to play a role in Varde's strategy that
would play to the car and driver's strengths of speed balanced with good
fuel economy and tire management.
"We had a quick car and great stops, but the yellows are really how we made
it," echoed Plumb. "Joe's strategy, as always, worked to perfection. If I
could just manage the fuel and tires, then we knew we had a solid chance of
Plumb returned the No.13 to the fray on lap 11 in 28th position. His speed
combined with others needing to make their first pit stops enabled him to
make up lost ground quickly. By lap 26, he had cracked the top-10, and
only four laps later was dicing for the lead. At half distance, the Rum
Bum BMW was back in the lead and thanks to the fuel economy and tire
management strategy, Plumb was able to run a few laps longer while many of
his rivals were heading for the pits and their second stop.
On lap 35, Plumb brought the No. 13 in for a full service from the lead,
returning in seventh place. Immediately after, the third of four caution
periods ensued. Yet again, while others chose to pit for a splash of fuel,
Plumb remained on track.
When the racing resumed, Plumb was in second place and chasing down the
leading BMW M3, finally retaking the point with a strong move into turn 1
on lap 46.
The pair of Turner Motorsports BMWs were the first to apply the pressure,
before the No. 97 car suddenly fell off the pace. Then it was the turn of
the No. 15 Mustang to apply
some pressure, but Plumb was able to manage the gap sufficiently to never
let the Mustang mount a
credible challenge. A final caution period allowed Plumb to cruise to the
finish line to take Rum Bum Racing's fourth series win and third in a row
dating back to the final two races of 2010.

2013 Rolex 24 Hour Race at Daytona, Audi Garage Time Lapse | Autoblog
It took 24 hours to run the race, but it was the last one was stuffed with
the high action as four cars were still trying to figure out how to gain
victory on the track and in the pits. Along with the obligatory crashes,
spins, mechanical issues and retirements had come numerous penalties, a
double-digit number of full-course yellows and two hours of fog that turned
early Sunday morning into a stretch of parade laps.
