What’s with the X? I mean I know it’s X-rated but…..
Funny Sam!

“X” on the back cars at the track let’s drivers behind you know you are an instructor and will have a good line to follow on the track (hopefully).

There is a wide variety of experience and skill at the track. An instructor might be in the car teaching someone how to get around the track safely for the very 1st time all the way up to an advanced driver that would like some coaching looking for tenths of seconds in search of better lap times. An instructor might be driving his/her car in the advanced group and they might also be out there in the novice group. This is why organizations want instructors to have an identifying “X” on the back of instructor car.

Snapped this shot of my 2011 when I was up a ladder hanging a banner in my garage:

Had 4 Gt500’s there.
Lime green 1000hp ran 162.63
I ran 164.11
Scotty ran 160.94
Russell who is still 100% stock ran 155.12

That was running into a 20-25mph head wind. I believe the 1000hp lime green gt500 ran a 166ish and Russell ran a 158.12 on Saturday with no wind.

So Tim, As a Instructor, If I am in the States, you can teach me like they do at Track Attack? I understand I have to pay you, curious the cost per lessons if you do that of course. 🙏

Thank you

Big Shawn, Scotty and I were at the 1/2 mile air strip attack in Abilene.

Wow, That looks like a FUING Blast Russell, As far as I know only Clark speedway may have a straight away a 1/2 mile long, If it does it probably won't have enough room after the .5 mark to stop without slamming on the brakes, When I go I'll fine out all the details, I know they 1/4 mile race there. May of the track below, anyone good at estimating it🤷‍♀️
