60 to 0 MPH in 2.5 Seconds: A Retrospective

A session at Cascadia Ruby 2011

This talk will be a story of my experience crashing a full size stock car into the blunt end of a concrete wall. This is a true story that happened to me at Columbus 151 Speedway in Columbus, WI. It occurred in a recurring event, which has been featured on Ripley’s Believe It or Not, called the Back-up Race where up to 12 cars race backwards around 1/4 mi. asphalt oval at speeds up to 65 MPH.
