The DFL Show: Episode 6 – PreYoonYun

14054339_10100450847202499_8162372961874910523_o

Down to just three hosts this time, Brad and Eric and Duncan discuss this week’s racing. There was a bit of NASCAR, some PWC, BTCC action, Trans Am, Speed Weeks, etc. Brad was at Laguna Seca all weekend checking out vintage cars, while Eric was in the NorthEast judging at LeMons (GP du Lac Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg), so neither of us saw much traditional racing. Duncan watched the NASCAR bit.

Brad sat his butt ON the corkscrew. JD Davison received a 1-race ban. Ben Keating is driving a not-Viper next year. Eric has a short quiz. We talk awards, and we discuss next week’s races.

This weekend there wasn’t really that much racing to shout about, but enough to discuss. Also, NASCAR raced in the rain! Personally, I was out at Laguna Seca attending the Monterey Motorsport Pre-Reunion, which is essentially a test day for next weekend’s real deal big show. It was a good time, as I got to hang out with our own Jason Connor and the guys from the Driving While Awesome podcast. There were some pretty spectacular cars there, and it was a good time. Unfortunately that means I missed watching most of the racing that was actually going on this weekend. I missed PWC from Utah. I missed the NASCAR XFinity race from Mid Ohio. I missed Moto GP. I missed Micra Cup. I’m sad about it, but not too sad.

Read along to see what good stuff happened this weekend. Summer is winding down a bit, and the racing is running to the end of the championships, so we’ll do our best to help keep your finger on the pulse. Just be aware of the fact that this post is filled with spoilers. Giant carbon-fiber, multi-element, DRS-equipped, Gurney-flapped, Spoilers! Oh, and in case you missed it, I am also hosting a new motorsport podcast these days…

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 123 – The Fun Button W/ Aaron France

C&T Graphic

Jason was out with a massive migraine this week, he was planning on being there, but just couldn’t deal with lights and sounds. We had a listener and brakes systems engineer for a major OEM as a guest on the show this week, who goes by the name of Aaron France. Aaron is an avid listener and question-asker on many shows, so we figured if he had that many questions, he’d make a good guest. We were right, he was pretty good. Everyone wins.

This week’s topics include: We spend far more time than we should arguing about car detailing and whether or not it’s worth it (it’s not, IMHO. – BB), The 3 D’s, Being content with content, Cam has a BMW update, our guest talks about Corvette stuff, we chat about tuner cars, and answer a few listener questions. As usual, we had a lot of fun recording this one. Just a few car guys sitting around talking about cars.

The DFL Show: Episode 5 – DTM are Touring Cars!

081016_motor_clauson_donor.vadapt.664.high.1

None of us knew Bryan personally, but we open by expressing our feelings in the recent wake of his loss. He was a dedicated young racer, and any time they are killed during a race meeting (or otherwise) the feelings are real. We move into race recaps of NASCAR at the Glen, Super GT, IMSA at Road America, GT Masters, and others. There’s a bunch of IMSA news, including Leh Keen’s unceremonious dropping from the WeatherTech team, as well as the series’ State of the Sport address from the weekend with plenty of announcements for the coming seasons. Alex Rossi has some Indy and F1 offers. Brad’s going to California. Pat’s going to Germany. Eric has a quiz (Has ____ Ever Driven A Touring Car?). Listeners have questions. We all give our awards. We tell you what we’re watching next weekend. And we’re out.

OH WAIT! This week we have a special treat, as Brad was able to score a 30 minute interview with Scott Speed. He’s perhaps best known for his time in F1 at the Scuderia Toro Rosso team, but he’s driven pretty much anything with wheels since then. He’s here to promote a new video game called “Motorsport Manager” which is currently available on Playstation Netowork, but will also be available on Steam starting tomorrow.

Everything Wrong With Hot Rod Shows

Bradley Brownell August 10, 2016 Car Shows

I spent last Friday here in Reno venturing out to see the sights of “Hot August Nights”. Every year, for a week, hot rods of all flavor invade the city and take over parking lots everywhere. Thousands of vintage V8s rumble down the road, and trundle through the lots. Every casino hotel has their own show, there’s a major parade downtown, and there are auctions around as well.

In my travels I’ve been to a bunch of hot rod shows, and I’ve noticed that there are a lot of common themes people use to attract attention to their cars. It all needs to stop. I plead with you, do not do any of these things.

This week has been packed with some great racing, but unfortunately was marred by tragedy as well. There were multiple events worthy of concern, and the community is again left reeling with the untimely passing of young gun Bryan Clauson. This was a freak accident that couldn’t really have been prevented in midget car racing, though I have not watched the video, and will not be posting it here, so I only know the details from IndyCar’s press release. I’ll put that below the jump. As unfortunate as that is, I’ll still bring you the rest of the news, but perhaps with a more somber tone.

Summer is winding down a bit, and the racing is running to the end of the championships, so we’ll do our best to help keep your finger on the pulse.

Weekend Edition: Hot August Nights – The Gassers

image

I am the first to admit that I don’t know much about vintage drag racing, but there is just something about an old Gasser that makes me happy inside. There were a bunch of gassers hanging around, so here is a masterpost including all of my photos of gassers. They all go lumpy lumpy lumpy as they trundle past, and they are all kicked way high up in the front. I’m not even sure how some of these cars are driven, especially any kinds of distances. At any rate, I applaud them. Today is Gasser Appreciation Day.

There was just so much going on, I’m sure I missed some of them, which makes me sad, however I’m glad I have what I have. Of course I took too many pictures of some cars and not enough of others. Enjoy!

Weekend Edition: Hot August Nights – The Mercuik

IMG_8408

Walk around the back of this 1951 Mercury custom, and you’d never guess anything was out of the ordinary. There are plenty of old Mercs turned into hot rod low-and-slow type cruisers. It’s got loud paint and lake pipes, tucked and chopped and channeled everything else. However, when you move around to the front of the car, you get a bit of a WHOA moment. Check it out after the jump.

Weekend Edition: Hot August Nights – Jeep Fleetvan Milk Truck?

IMG_8483

With some minimal research it would appear that this is what is known as a Jeep FJ-3 delivery van. They were built in the early-to-mid 1960s, though not in notable quantities. This is the first one I’ve ever seen, and frankly had never heard of them. This  leads event the most avid Jeep historians to dub the FJ series of vans the “Forgotten Jeep”. The FJ-3 was primarily built for postal service delivery, accounting for their Right-Hand-Drive configuration. There was also an FJ-3A which was left driven, and had a proper Jeep vertical slat grille. More Photos after the jump.

Weekend Edition: Hot August Nights – The Atlantis

image

Our third stop of the night was at the Atlantis Casino parking lot. This was the largest of the three stops we made, perhaps 700 cars or so were in attendance. There were a few interesting bits in this lot. Not a lot of variety, but if its old and has a V8, chances are there’s one in the lot. The show was starting to get a little overwhelming, we were tired and hungry, and we were ready to get home, so photos of the more normal stuff were limited, and we just stopped to look at the more bizarre. It was fun, but one evening a year is about all I need. Too crowded, and I prefer my vintage days to include a lot of racing, which is why I’m headed to the Monterey Motorsport Reunion in a few weeks. Anyway, there will be more coverage of this stuff tomorrow, focusing on particular cars of interest.
