Video - USTCC Race Win in E90



Now THAT was a race! Started 4th, got balked at the start when 2nd place stalled on the start and lost a position to teammate Larry Bani. Larry let me back past him quickly and I then focused on Curt Simmons in the Honda. I caught up to him in a few laps and made the pass on him into Turn 1. Then I focused on Mike Sekhon in 2nd. There was a 2 second gap and for several laps I couldn't make any ground on him. A little after half way the gap started to close down and I reeled him in. We were in close formation for several laps and I tried a couple of moves that didn't stick. On the last lap I got a really strong run out of 5&6, and was able to stay close through 8 & 9. I kept the pressure on in the braking zone in 10 and attempted to get an overlap into 11. Mike missed his downshift to 3rd entering 10 and had a brief moment of no drive at the apex, which was enough for me to get the overlap I needed. I drove deep into 11 and Mike gave me room and I was through! An exciting race win and clean driving by all!

I think I set a record for most different race cars driven in a USTCC race weekend at three.

Many thanks again to Larry Bani, Ali Arsham and the entire GoGoGear.com team for pulling out all the stops to make this win possible! THANK YOU!

We leave round 3 in the championship lead with a bigger gap than when we got here. Considering how bad this weekend could have been, this is an awesome result for the team!

Great driving that was fun to watch. Looked like you were pressing hard on the second to last lap. Nice save around the 22:32 mark.

Thanks everyone!

Route16, I just dumped the cards to my MBP and used the latest version of iMovie. I exported it to a local file first, then uploaded to Youtube.
