Ask any astronaut and he or she will tell you that re-entry is tricky. The same is true on a racetrack. In this clip, NASA Mid-Atlantic racer Jake Thiewes was the recipient of a punt at the exit of Oak Tree Turn at VIR during a race at HyperFest in 2019. With a good portion of the field still coming through, the only responsible thing Thiewes could do was sit and wait before he could re-enter the race safely.
