    Yeah he'll be crapping out seat fabric and foam for a while. Of course, seeing cars like that on that track (which is on my bucket list right next to Road America and Mid Ohio) makes it even more impressive what the NASCAR truck series does on that track. The yearly race there is one of the highlights of the truck schedule.

    The car was amazingly compliant. Could have been so much worse.

    Holy crap he is getting around there good. Love the little Homer Simpson scream near the end of his slide.

    That's mosport, now called Canadian Tire park or something. I've done hundreds of laps there, and that corner can be really greasy of the line, and that wall is waaayyy closer to the track than it looks! Corner two, right after the rise at the end of the clip is a spectacular left-handed, off-camber-appearing drop, and corner 5 (?), Known as moss', has a fast, large-elevation change entrance follows by a slow and technical double-apex right. Check out an onboard of the track, though cameras do little to.show the elevation changes.

    Again, the camera does nothing to show the elevation changes. When actually on the track, the rise out of the valley going in to 5 really looks like a wall of pavement.

    Wow, a very technical track. When do you have time to blink?

    These guys ^ are a poor example, you've got a lot of time to blink at my kind of speed ;-) I raced bikes there, and that back straight gives you a bit of time to lighten the grip a bit, as it were!

    And to think that NASCAR runs the truck series there. Always puts on a great race, and is one of my favorite tracks that run any of the top three series.
