Topic: NCM Vehicle fire pics or vid?

Hey gang, 

Did anybody get any pictures of those morons whose car caught on fire last weekend? (it was us...) 

Thanks,

Re: NCM Vehicle fire pics or vid?

When/where was the fire? If it lasted for more than ~3min, it'll be on the Duff cam.

One of those Toyota-sponsored teams was streaming their in-car camera to Facebook Live, but I'm not sure if it was going the whole race. I think it was the team from the factory in Indiana, with the red and white Camry.

He's got one from the tower, I think


the BEST part of the whole story is when the driver said, while gesturing to his watch, "Yea, my heart rate was higher on my first stint on the track than it was while pulling the pin and putting out the fire."

Re: NCM Vehicle fire pics or vid?

I passed by just as the driver was putting out the fire.  Pretty sure our camera was dead by then, but I'm waiting for the camera owner to pull the Sunday data to confirm.  Every corner worker across the rest of the track was hanging out of the flag stands taking pictures for the next lap or two.   To be sure, pictures are out there. We just haven't seen any yet.

Apparently my name is really "Craigers".  Who knew?
We might be yellow, but at least we are slow
I'm a WINNER!

I dont remember what day and time it was but we may have it on some videos that we posted already. Shoot me a reply and I'll check. I do remember that I was in the car and saw it blazing, We did lose the camera sometime Saturday afternoon though.

Re: NCM Vehicle fire pics or vid?

Based on my call list it was around 12 on Sunday, because I called my wife after the car got towed in to tell her not to hurry back that the car caught fire as I was driving. 

She immediately asked if there were any pictures. 

Yeah, I'm fine, thanks.

Re: NCM Vehicle fire pics or vid?

We enjoyed the hell out of meeting everyone, seeing the cars, and being welcome to the community.  I think you've got fans for life over here. 

Road Atlanta will (hopefully) be our next event.  1/2 our crew will be gone for that, so we'll bring in some new drivers.  The other half of the crew will be gone during Barber, but we absolutely want to hit NCM or CMP next year.  Can't do CMP this year, we'll be working. 

Thanks again to all.

Got a little bit of video on it as we went by, it starts at around the 1;20 mark https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyYQds1 … FtIJQEoC4Z

Some video from inside the Bee.  I pass the fire close to the 1:02:00 mark.
