This is what happens when you put 20 odd cars on a 1/5 mile track and put the fastest at the back. The number 62 Acura is my racing buddy (he's fine, a bit sore). I was about 2 cars behind; this was on the 3rd lap and I was getting nervous about being on the inside, so was in process of moving to outside line, managed to clip the 94 car with left front and get clipped on the right rear, mainly cosmetic. I guess we are spending Sunday straightening sheet metal and replacing a windshield and radiator.

#5 gets tagged by #77 (who was DQ'd)

And #77 continues to push #5 around (reason for his DQ)

#20 BMW gets through

And 58 stops, 62 starts to hit, and is pushed by 94

And #58 drives off and finishes race (chasing me for the next 20 laps)

And me being chased down by pink 58 later in race ... crumpled fender and hood, but Toyota is strong

why no headlights?

All glass except windshield have to be removed.

Removed whole assembly as on a 1/5 mile track aero is not an issue and overheat can be an issue ... no headlight allows better airflow to radiator. Also, less stuff to get pushed into radiator etc when taking a hit.

You gotta love a race track that has old boats in the pit area. See pic one. LOL!

you should cover that up with something and weld it to the hood, make louvers or something.
