CA Speedway, running w/REDSLED

Couple of video's from CA Speedway, nice event, temps low 80"s, light wind, not too crowded. Hadn't been there in over a year, ran little sloppy but kept my foot in it on the oval and ran my best time to date.

First video is only 1:30, I got out late, stock car and two indy type cars pass as I start to enter track, 20 seconds later I let a ZR-1 by as I'm still on cold tires. Stock car and vette meet in the hairpin, watch the action.

2nd video, trying to run with REDSLED, he gets ahead but I finally catch him. Fun times at the track

Great laps, as a side note in reference to your "Viper Vs Cobra" video that was absurd he let that drag on for so long only so he can gloat to his buddies that he "beat" a Viper on the track...

IMO I would have been a little more aggressive as far as my distance and that usually gets people to move over alot sooner then later.

V4C, your right, I should have forced the issue with that cobra. Kept thinking he'd lift or move after seeing me on his bumper in the turns. I get spooked when I see a car that's on the edge and drifting in the high speed turns but gotta remember he's in an $$ car and doesn't want to wreck either.

Couple of these cobra's around here are really fast in the straights, 700 plus hp and weight around 2700, not used to having someone pull on my that strong. thanks, Mike

SoCal, Aaron from Speedventures mentioned that in the drivers meeting, I never heard him say that before the others times I've been there with him.

REDSLED tells me that was John and 2 hours later John shows up at the track. Great guy, lot's of good stories, tells me he ran the oval section flat out, with NO aero! Wild

Yes, the second I saw him pull you on those straights it was obvious he had some serious power in that little AC without doubt. The missing part of the equation is in the turns where he was shaky and drifty.
Whenever I go karting at the local track here, I'm known to my buddies as the "dive bomber" as I have little patience (after two trailing laps) for people who insist on blocking me by taking the line constantly.
In any case, good laps and now you know what to do if you meet the Cobra again.

I was right on the ass of a cobra at summit point when I saw the right rear tire come off the ground and the car started to slide, then he over corrected and went into a spin. All this with me about 4 feet from his bumper just to "let him know I was there."

I was originally just trailing but the instructor riding shotgun (I'm not the track pro some of you are) told me to get up on him and pressure him a little bit, make sure he knows you are there and looking to pass. He went off track after a 270 degree spin, cracked something in suspension. Luckily I kept the line and stayed to the inside without making contact.

Nothing wrong with not wanting to t-bone someone at the track.

Yeah ask Aaron when him and me used to run time trial times for $$$, me in my gen 2 and him in his S2000, I took a few bucks off of him I was always finishing 2nd to John, he's good. We ran the Viperdays Nationals at Texas World Speedway in 2002 in the same class he won I came in 2nd. Then I smartened up in 2003 we ran the Open Track Challenge 7 different track in 7 days, you needed 2 drivers per car so me and John teamed up, we finished 2nd to PMUM in touring class.

When John hit the wall I was his pit radio man, he had a set of 28 inch tall slicks on the rear and I kept telling him there was tire rub smoke entering turn 2, he never stopped and finally when leaving turn 2 his rear blew and he went into the wall. He got out of the care center pretty quick but it was a bitch loading his wreck on the trailer.


John and I horsing around at WSIR:

SoCal, yeah Aaron warned about tire rubbing from the compression on the oval (like he always warns) and said a GTS cut a tire and hit the wall (never heard that said before). Next time I see Aaron I'll ask about you and him racing, I knew he had a honda track car but don't think I've ever seen him run.

I got to meet John when he came to see Jonathan. I knew of him but had never met. (I was in PHX till about '03, missed the good old days out here, and only knew of PNUM by seeing him on TV). John's a fun and funny guy. He told me about you being there that day he wrecked and you telling him of visable smoke. He also told me many stories about you guys, viperdays, the challenge series, etc, etc. Really seemed like great times and adventures for all you guys! I hope to see him again at the track, ton a knowledge, great stories, funny guy! You too. Last time I saw you was with the borrowed ACR at Willow, 4-5 years ago?? Buy/borrow a viper and get back to the track, you've got good skills, may not be the viper glory days of the past but we still have alot of fun!
