Jul 15, 2011 update to the Lincoln Mark VII project car

Watch the Lincoln Crapcan in Action

The Lincoln MkVII is right at home on Lowes Motor Speedway.

You need to grab ahold of that line between speed and chaos, and you need to wrestle it to the ground like a demon cobra. —“Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.”

Watch our Lincoln MkVII run around the Roval at Lowes Motor Speedway. This was during the ChumpCar World Series 14-hour endurance race on April 23, 2011. We finished 26th out of 46 entries and managed a best lap time of 1:41.9.

We still need to make a lot of improvements to the car—and to the crew as well. We hope to sort out the suspension and calculate fuel consumption in order to run faster lap times and pit less frequently.

Enjoy the video. You’ll see some exciting racing as we manage traffic and avoid bending up our baby—mostly.
