Topic: old crows @ sears pointless

Old Crows celebrated like our 20th consecutive loss in Class B!  Came closer than usual to not losing, but the Crap-can Mixed Tape Dating Club held their stuff together with faster laps and better avoidance tactics than ours to beat us by four laps. They did a great job especially avoiding the multi car accident between turn 5 and 6.

Thanks to Scott on the #188 team for helping us get our alternator issue sorted out Friday. Not being able to test did save us $325, which was good,

Took awhile to go thru all our footage, but here's 16 hrs of Lemons racing distilled into 17 minutes of bloopers. Enjoy!

and the best lap of each of the three or us just so folks know we're not always completely incompetent.

Great compilation video!  Some great saves and some risky decisions.  I'm going to share it with my team if you don't mind.  We have a few rookies that might need the glimpse of danger.

Great footage!!!  That's an action packed edit. Much appreciated as my go-pro was safely tucked inside my gear bag the entire time I was on track. I have two questions:
-How many black flags?
-How much do you want for that shift light?  (Since you ain't really using it anyways)

two BF's: the jostle with the white Supra out of the chicane and getting hit by Blowe's in 7.
Ya, one of us seems to like third gear a lot more than fourth!

Yes of course. I learn quite a bit watching my teammates and others' videos. Not that it necessarily translates to improvement.
We also did the racecast.me thing with a separate Sioeye camera and T-mobile hotspot and transmission was flawless, but unfortunately, one could only watch the transmissions reliably at the track with ATT, which none of us had. Racecast also archives your uploads, so that you can watch them anytime after, altho in a low-resolution format. Go to racecast.me and search for "old crows" and you'll see our Saturday and Sunday .
