Top Drift Round 3

Waking up at 5 AM we headed out for willow still groggy from the Colorado flight the night before. Arriving at the track we saw a banked dirt oval with a small paved oval in the middle. As soon as we head about the oval track we had mixed feeling.

But this track was the best all season for the RePlay cameras, with the oval we got 2 chance to get the cars perfectly in frame off the rear passenger corner.
