    Bill. Great videos and photos. Question…what does the 14 5/3 stand for?

    That 5 is a very crude S. Car number 14 running in class Specials 3.

    Run 2. Saturday in the wet. Sideways in Turn 3 and a spin in Turn 8. Camera dies at the spin.

    Sunday morning, first run. The crash in turn 7 along with the recovery effort and the tow to the top.

    I am convinced that car broke and then crashed, not the other way around. I bet it’s that same rear track bar/locating arm that has let loose before.

    There is an unusual sound at 1:30 into the run immediately before you spun out.  Is that the track bar letting go??

    Sorry, nothing let go. I’ve driven her since she got home and she seems just fine. We just lost traction in a section of track that wasn’t yet dried out.

    The strange noises that you hear come from a remote mic that’s plugged into the GoPro. It’s stuck down into the rear body work in an attempt to eliminate the wind noise.

    Bill, I’ve watched the 1:25-1:33 portion of this video at least 15 times.

    It seems like you were out of the turn and on the gas.

    What do you attribute the spin out to?  Could it have been a couple of pebbles on the surface?

    Remember what Wobby told us about 6 years ago?  “Nothing good ever came out of a car race.”  Glad to hear minimal (if any) damage.

    Fun to see that.

    Glad your crash wasn’t like the other car that rolled. I looked at it a few times and thought maybe I could see the car bounce, so was thinking maybe that was what made the rear wheels let loose. Hard to tell. You would know better than I.

    And the car that rolled did bounce some before steering into the curb, but no way of knowing what was actually taking place behind the wheel. Looked like the driver steered into it. However you could say that of yours too if not for seeing your steering point of view.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures and videos! You were doing great on the wet road, good racing.
