This guy was really informative and did a great job describing the experience. The technology
that goes into F1 cars is insane. I was laughing to myself wondering what this guy would have
said about driving the 442 around the race track. Especially the horrible braking, body roll,
and tires, and I haven't mentioned impossible steering yet! Have you found a video that compares
F1 cars of today to ones from the 60's or 70's?

Go take a ride in this guy's hot rod '64 Corvette on the back roads.. a heavily modified C2 with C4 suspension components, 5sp, and a tunnel ram!

That is an amazing combo, but like dude with that kind of power and handling I think I'd want at least a rollover bar and a 5 point harness!

when was the last time a pit reporter was in pit lane while a car was being serviced at a NASCAR race?

After watching this I started thinking about all the close up camera work they had to do.

And if you go further into it you see them doing a full pit stop on Benny Parsons - fueling in shirt sleeves!

How about guys pushing Richard Petty in the infield and they didn't throw a yellow flag or try to slow down the race at all. So sketchy and great, all at the same time.
