Thank God For Brent's driving skills (and BigAls')
He kept it IN the wall.....bad things happen when they cross the track back and forth.
Good thing he was WAY ahead of the Z06 corvette when he got in his lane.
Good job BRENT!

So sorry Mike, as owners, it is sure a struggle

Well Ryan when you drag race you're "supposed" to run water only in the radiator vs coolant. Water cleans up easy, coolant doesn't. Not many people run water only in street cars which track workers hate.
