After the race yesterday, I was pooped, but excited to start another day of racing. I qualified 3rd and stayed 3rd. After the race I had a little extra time to roam around the track and check out some of the other venues. There was drifting at Horse Thief and the Porche HPDE still going on from the day before. The drifting was amazing to say the least. Coming from “grip” racing I dont really see the point of it, but none the less, it is very entertaining and I’m sure, pretty fun. As the day came to a close, the team packed up the trailer and made thier way back to Santa Barbara.
The racing of the day didn’t come with a couple of crashes. This DSR collided with a Formula car gonig through turn 9.

Racetrack repairs are not too fun. One of the Mariah cars broke an axle and the mechanics (Dan, Max, and Zack) made quick work of it.
Finally made it up to the drifting and the air was filled with the smell of tortured tires, and burned clutches
One of the poorest looking cars at the drift track but my favorite car of the weekend. I bet this drove like a dream!
R.I.P. all of those poor tires those drift nuts burned…
As the day came to a close, the cars slowly started to make thier way home.
This was the first time I had ever seen a Porsche World Challenge GT3 RS ouside of a showroom.
Slowly, all the racecars disappeared into their trailers.
The Mariah Motorsports gang followed suit and started paking up. Waynes car on the left, and mine on the right.
I said goobye to the racecars…until next week, when I’ll be at Auto Club Speedway, racing again.
