  • Billy Johnson In-Car Footage - Koni - Barber Motorsports Park

    Check out my in-car footage from Barber Motorsports Park for the Grand Am Koni Challenge Series driving the Valvoline / Roush Racing Ford Mustang FR500C.

    We ended up finishing 3rd in the race after having to pit 30 minutes into the race because of a loose wheel. At the pit stop we did a driver & tire change and I drove the last 2 hours of the 2.5hr race. That early pit stop put me at the back of the pack after Jack qualified and was running in a solid top 5.

    The video shows many of the passes I made moving through the field making it back to 4th before everyone made their only pit stop cycling me into the lead. With not enough fuel to make it to the end we had to make an additional stop moving me back to 6th. The last few passes of the video showed me moving from 6th up to finish 3rd.

    Enjoy:

    Keep up the good work. I heard that the Porsche's had an unfair (one of the other mustang teams) advantage but viewing the video it doesn't look that way. Of course i don't know whom was first or second and buy how much.

      Well that was boring. Try unnecessarily sawing at the wheel next time, that makes it more entertaining to watch.

      Thanks,

          Thanks for posting this Billy! I'll be there in a few weeks and have been scouring the net trying to find decent in-car to help learn the track.

            Great footage, Billy! The passes were so damned clean. Its hard to tell from in-car video how close to the limits of grip the driver is, but by watching the cars you are passing squirm around, its is very obvious that you all are at the absolute limits of grip. I learned a lot just by watching the video. Look like a fun track, to boot! Thanks for posting it.

                That was 2 years ago. Billy is a substantially more experienced professional race car driver now, with a lot of success since the time of that video.
