    You were looking good Carl. Dustin and I were watching the race. We were bummed when you sent us your massive smoke signal to the entire midwest that you were retiring from the 2017 Indy Runoffs.

    We are already only 800 miles from home....

    Here is the first 30 minutes of my GT2 race at the 2017 SCCA Runoffs at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Only the first 10 minutes is worth watching. It settles into a routine after that time. Two points of interest:
    1. Before we even take the green flag at the beginning of the last curve before taking the green flag a 350z on slicks that require more warm-up than DOT R tires spins. He is a past GT2 Runoffs winner so it is a highly unusual event. I don't think he warmed his tires enough and as we were gaining speed on formation for the green flag he understeered two wheels off and then did the classic across track spin.
    2. At minute 8:30ish I get a small tap from the white Porsche just after turn into the left hand Turn 5. I quickly correct so it wasn't an issue and I don't think he did it intentionally.

    I had to catch a plane about 3/4 of the way into the T4 race. It was a storied beginning with carnage. Definately fun to watch including the run by don knolwes. Oscar killed the field after showing great racecraft in the opening laps. Congrats Oscar!

    Apparently Oscar got his win in T4 taken away:

    Well thats a bummer. I've seen lots worse at the runoffs before that went unpunished. Ho was playing a little rough and that might have factored into things leading up to the incident.

    Thoughts? Well Congrats to Oscar T4 Champion. What a farce! I was there and watched it. Ho and Jackson came together before the back straight because neither would yield. It was good hard racing. Then in the ESSES it looked like Ho (leading jackson) went it a bit too hot. Ho was on the edge and tapped his brakes to settle his car and got tapped by Jackson and spun out. Ho was not in control and Jackson's bump was not even like SM's bumpdrafting at ACS. It was not Jackson's fault. Sounds to me like Dynasty has more pull with the Stewards. Makes me want to go get a T4 car and help Jackson win in 2018. Jackson was robbed.

    Some 360 video of the start of the T4 Race is up. It was a very messy start on every ones part.

    And guess who is the car to the rightmost? The 3rd place car (2nd after penalties), but no penalty whatsoever.
    P.S. I meant this for the accident with the camera car.

    Camera car was also spun. No penalty.
    Looking at the results. Oscar is the only one with a penalty.
