Racer Pulls from 25th to 1st after 100mph SpinoutJune 15th, 2014
Typically, once you spin your car out in a race, your chances of pulling back into first place are slim to none. But you can never keep a good man down, as driver Denny Stripling proved during a recent SCCA Spec Racer Ford competition at Texas World Speedway.
Stripling started out in solid position in the front row of the 33 car pack, but lost his place as he got nudged between a two car shootout going into turn 1. Despite spinning out at about 100mph, and his car sustaining significant cosmetic damage when broadsided by another car, Denny kept his cool, corrected course and raced on. What happens next is nothing short of spectacular, as he gradually worked his way from position 25 out of 33 all the way to the front of the pack, into first place, ultimately taking the checkered flag.
Great job, Denny!
