Was that warmup, or the first out lap of a race? Looks like the field was slowing and getting gridded up for the start of a race.

Not a race, all race groups were out for a warmup. Someone had gone off at 10a, then accordion effect.

Damn, that sucks. Rob O in the S2000 was probably a little nervous seeing you coming at him sideways in the rearview. Hope its fixable...

Looks like the double yellow is out at the bridge.
But, double yellow we're told to catch the car in front. However, on the outlap at RA you should expect slow or standing cars at that point. I've run up on it many times. Even on restarts you can come up on them very fast over that blind hill.

Worker should have been doing the animated push down with cars coming in hot into something like that. Maybe they did, video isn't very clear, but I've seen it many times and really-really appreciate it when they do. They are my eyes.

@ the .03 mark, is that a t6 corner worker with a yellow flag, blowing flat towards the outside of the track, or is it a pole and something else ....and my older eyes are starting to play tricks on me?
