3… 2… 1…
8 months earlier, the branded-title Toyota 86 is up for auction following the Houston floods.
After being transformed into a race car, the Toyota 86 makes a debut at MSR Houston Motor Speedway for an 8-hour endurance race.
Ready to Race
I’m excited. It’s awesome to get to drive this 86 salvage car in a race, and prove what it can do. It worked flawlessly yesterday, so we know we’re going to have a good race today. It looks like we might have some rain today, so it should throw a little bit at us to adapt to. But, it will be fun and we’re confident that we are going to have a competitive car. We’re looking forward to the next 8 hours, an entire work day worth of driving.
How’s the car feeling?
Pretty good. I mean the tires, were like, a little hot and stuff so we just let some air out of them, and hopefully that will be better for this stint.
Racing to Raise Funds for First Responders
The car just ran like a champ. It was, what, a 3-hour stint or something like that. Just kept going, turning down the laps, it was beautiful. Could not complain. Couldn’t really expect for anything better really.
