2011 SCCA Runoffs:
Class: SCCA Enterprises Spec Racer Ford (SRF)
Driver: Denny Stripling
Qualified 23rd, ran as high as 9th, finished 11th. Earned the Sunoco Hard Charger award. Rear-facing camera in upper left hand corner.


"Welcome to my Runoffs experience. I didn't qualify where I wanted due to missing half of the week, having mechanical issues during my two qualifying sessions, and subsequently over-driving my ill-handling car trying to make up for lost time. Nevertheless, making up 14 spots during the race was certainly exciting and enjoyable. Before the race I made a fuel pressure adjustment that turned out to be ill-advised as I felt like I had less straightaway speed than I had during qualifying the day before. I made significant changes to try and loosen the car up and it worked... too much in fact in the carousel which killed me on the longest straightaway.

Overall a very fun weekend and some pretty entertaining video as a result. My brake pedal started to soften about a third of the way into the race so I had to push my braking zones way back (like an entire marker in some spots).

P.S.- They are 1.9L Fords from the early 90's Escort GT that were sent to Roush for a little touch up and full engine management."--Phantom9192

The Driver states:
"With my accident, if you look closely to the lower left of the bridge as we approach, you will see lights (yellow and red). There was some confusion on what they meant and they let off the throttle or hit their brakes. I never even saw the lights. The lights meant there was debris on the track."
