Autocross shoot out live feed

A friend of mine is running in this.  It's a knockout bracket race.  This is after a qualifier earlier today.  Winner takes home $10K.  There are some "big names" in the field.  Of course, watching it is basically admitting you don't have anything to do on a Friday night.  smiley

Yeah, meant to mention klodkrawler by name, but couldn't remember how he spelled it.  smiley  His co-driver is sitting first right now.

So, the sound is pretty poor, and I still heard the Vette hit the wall.  Yikes.

Rule #1 of autocross, don't hit things that aren't orange.

That's a blip shift shirt, for sure. 

Let me know when your shirt comes out, I'll be buying one.

I was going to suggest that barefootskater paint his Mustang orange. There were thoughts behind that.

Having gone to a university whose colors were maroon and orange, I was going to make a similar suggestion.  Your reasoning is better though.

also, cool that both a challenge car, and a gridlife street mod car got into the shootout against a bunch of LS CAM machinery
