B. Dick & R. Simons Blast a Ditch in I-500

1/26/2011 8:43:00 AM

Want to know how to win the I-500?

Be capable of hitting ditch approaches in featureless, flat light at mach-3, just like Brian Dick and Ryan Simons display here at the 2011 USCC I-500.

Do this for 160 miles a day, without crashing, and you'll win.
