NASA Arizona driver Jim Shepard had a front-row seat to a tank slapper as he exited “the bowl” at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in Desert Center, Calif. As the track rises through the left hander out the bowl, grip goes away, as demonstrated by Louis Verloop, the driver in the Miata in front of Shepard. Verloop gathered it up, then demonstrated excellent awareness and didn’t try to re-enter the track too quickly. Well done, guys.
