Black Betty Takes in a Road Course Nail

Hitting the road course at the 2010 Run To the Coast event in El Toro in Black Betty, our ’01 Z28 project car, I was unaware that the left rear tire had taken in a nail and was gradually losing air pressure throughout the run. You can see the excessive work going on with the steering wheel on mellow right turns, but it only becomes obvious when I make a hard right on the final s-turn. It’s there you can hear the rear tire fold under the wheel and see the hand movement as I try to control the sudden oversteer.

Some of the 3S Challenge action at the 2016 Holley LS Fest. The idea is to race in a straight line, make a turn, wiggle through cones and stop in a box. All in the fastest time. It's hard to do and fun to watch.
