    During practice for the final practice/qualifier event of the year prior to the runoffs, an oil leak ended the weekend early in spectacular fashion. The initial leak covered the rear tires in oil causing me to spin as I entered turn 11. Thinking nothing of the spin and not having noticed the oil smoke yet, I continued down the front straight to resume practice. As I pass pit wall, I hear my crew chief Jim's somewhat excited voice on the radio: "YOU ARE ON FIRE, GET OUT OF THE CAR". Since Jim is usually calm as a cucumber, I recognize the urgency in his tone of voice! As I cross start/finish you can see the flames now. When I get off throttle to pull over, the car snap spins again. When I stop rotating and roll to a stop I pull the extinguisher handle and get out. Fortunately the fire quickly is abated. We were able to get it cleaned up and repaired for the qualifying session 2 hours later, but despite only running a few moments with low oil, the engine was damaged. A bearing failure on the second lap of qualifying ended our weekend.

      This is another version of the video posted as Sonoma 07/2013 Race 2.....I'd say its the "music video" version....Captures more of the "atmosphere" of the race weekend if you will. Lots of work, cool cars, fun racing, etc.....Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Special recognition to Alexey Orlov for his stunning videography, slide videography and time lapse photography!

        This was a great race! After being held up a bit at the start, I get tapped in turn 7, spinning and end up at the back of the pack. After 25 minutes of chasing, I catch my primary competition, Rob Schwable (blue Stohr) and Mike Clauss (red/silver Speads). A heated battle ensues! This edit comprises 15 or so minutes of the 40 minute race. Note that we all get lapped near the end by Chris Farrell, the SCCA 2013 National Champion in DSR. Wow.

          Good race with Rob Schwable. Initially from pole I slowed the field to allow bunching of the DSR's for two laps. After we were together, there was a local yellow around turn 4 for several laps. Real racing begins about lap 5 or so.
