Finally cared enough to get video literate.

Here's a couple videos from April Mid-Ohio with NASA Great Lakes.

Race 1 Full Video - Mid-Ohio Pro Course

Race 2 Start and AI Track Record - Mid-Ohio Club Course

New Club Course AI Track Record - 1:37.838. Four tenths under the old record.

Here's one from Road America last year. I reset the AI track record in the race, but I can't remember what lap. It was interesting when the hood pin support broke and the hood turned into a 6-8" cowl at 140MPH.

NCM Grand in October 2016

Here's a clip from last year at National Corvette Museum (NCM). Sunday was a non-points day so they could hand out trophies at the banquet on Saturday night. Since it was a fun day (but contingency still on the line), we inverted the entire race group.

I'm a dummy and forgot to turn on the camera until part way through Lap 2, so it gets right to the action. I make some mistakes, but still throw down a lap good enough to reset the track record again (I reset on Saturday).

Contour Roam2 and I just picked up a Roam3 for a rear-view camera. They're bad ass for $100.

Rear view camera had a memory card error, so I just did a quick edit on this one and uploaded.

Pittsburgh International Race Complex (Pitt Race) with NASA Great Lakes in June 2017.

I had never been to Pitt Race before and I qualified P2 even after running the test day. The track is great but we definitely showed up "under everything": under sprung, under tired, dead diff, etc. We dialed in the setup all weekend but didn't quite have it for Race 1.

In typical Bain Racing fashion, we showed up with well used tires hoping to run well. This was the 12th race on these tires and it showed.

AJ Hartman was on pole and hadn't run with NASA GL before. I was pointing at him to tighten it up and he was pointing at me to set the pace. Oops... Since we were so far back from our wave, I ended up with another wicked start. Once AJ ran me down, he was all over me like a cheap suit.
We lucked into a win after a long battle with AJ Hartman and knew we had to up our game for Sunday. Stay tuned for the R2 video!

Enjoy!

After a win on Saturday, we prepped the car and knew we needed more. We tweaked the setup and put sticker tires on for qual and picked up some time but still qualified P2 to AJ Hartman.

I got a good start but then missed a shift. Luckily, I recovered well, drove it hard into the next two corners and came out of T4 in P1. Between new tires and traffic, we were looking pretty good up front. Yellow flags heading into T16 helped as well and took away AJ's best runs.

Unfortunately, I started over driving T13 and it led to our DNF. On the bright side, the only damage appears to be a torn up brake duct.

We found enough speed by Sunday that we were able to reset AJ's day old record and it now stands at a 1:54.383. It's not as sweet as a win, but we'll take it!
