Retaliation - Is it really worth it?
October 4th, 2013 - USRA B Modified race. This video is from start of race until first contact between the two drivers. A caution was thrown for the car with the flat and allowed to change the tire. The video continues once again at the restart from the caution.
Here is the link to a companion video that was shot from the infield of the same race:
