We posted this video some time back when a forum member was able to host it.
While the resolution on these gets cut down a little, you still get some of the sense of speed.
I thought some of you might want to see it again.

On the start we went 5 wide and ultimately thinned to 3 wide when we went into turn 1 at about a buck-forty on cold tires. read the comments on the video and you'll find that I was having a lot of problems with my eyes during this race. The 2nd lap we entered turn 1 at roughly 150. This is absolutely as fast as I would ever drive this car. When it was carbed we hit 155 with it without an airdam and the car was very close to being airborn.

Well - enjoy...

Great video. That first corner had lots of potential for some serious paint exchange. :eek: May have to go to BIR next time you guys run there. Just purely as a spectator. Mine are not big enough to come home to the wrath of what I would have to listen to for taking an off road adventure. If you know what weekends you will be running PM me. Will have to plan my summer for that.

Great job Randy .

I am so glad I am taking the time to do the front aero mods to keep it stuck down.

Love that start!

I have run once at Indianapolis Raceway park, and like Brainerd, the front stretch is the whole dragstrip. Talk about a long straight!

That's awesome. My wife was watching over my shoulder and wanted to know if my car will do this? The car might but I won't

Alright... I'll concede that Randy's car is better looking, but he's not the only one with videos to play with:

Here is the in-car from Cates in the exhibition race. I'm directly in front of him. You can see me muscle my way up on the start on my way to taking the lead.

Here's the first lap at Summit Point's Shenandoah circuit with Brian Cates, Paul Kaiser, and myself fought nose to tail for the entire race before I managed to get ahead.

And here is me starting from the back after I had won the championship. Now it's time to move up through the field, but I missed the start and had to improvise:
