2006 Heartland Park -- It rained most of the weekend, so I didn't get much video. Here are 3 clips from the Enduro race: The first lap, Passing my friend Sandy Steckman for 2nd place in 'G', Passing Bryan Henderson for 1st place in 'G', and Finally, my fastest lap (late in the enduro) 2:03.275.
Sandy and Bryan are both great to race with. I've had some good close racing with Sandy before. This was my first race with Bryan and we had several good, close moments. Note: The pass shown in the video was before either of us made our pit stop. Bryan timed his pit stop better than I did and got out ahead of me. I had a blast trying to chase him down in the final few laps (you can see him out ahead of me in the fastest lap video). I caught him on the last lap... he ran into some mud in the chicane and I got a good run on him coming out of the chicane .... we went side-by-side through the next couple of turns before I was able to get in front. Unfortunately, my camera ran out of tape just before the last lap, so I missed recording the best part of the whole race!!!!
2005 Brainerd Practice -- Three of us 'G' cars had a blast in this practice session. We traded places almost every lap. This lap shows some of the drafting down the front straight and through turns 1 and 2.

In the Enduro, I got boxed in between two cars coming into corner 3. The car right in front of me slowed down much more than I expected. My choice was to hit him in the back or spin the car.... see the results. 2005 Brainerd Enduro Spin
