I went to Homestead Saturday as my last run in this car as a street legal car. It now is going for its race build. Montoya was there coaching his nephew who races a B18 EK. I had the pleasure of chasing Montoya for a brief stint when he took the wheel.

My fronts before the day started:



The day finished with a 100mph tire failure in turn 1, I mowed the grass out to NASCAR 1&2....lucky.



The loaner I drove it home on:

how did a tech inspector pass those tires?
I am instructor and run in coaches group. We tech out own. Cars. If you look at the first pick there is plenty on that tire. It just wasn't up for 5 hard sessions with me over driving them. I also did not know until now how quickly a tire can degrade once you start to delaminate it.
