Cinco de Mayhem Racing
Racing's dirty, dirty secret.
It all seems so glamorous, fast cars, speed, the danger. Everyone will talk about the passes and the speed. None will talk about the dirty side of racing. The foul, nasty part that comes with every race. Sometimes it will take you out in a corner that was perfect the last go around. It always leaves marks, and turns up in the oddest places. Maybe you get through the weekend with no incidents, but it’s always at the end, after everyone’s gone. Maybe in the privacy of the garage, when no wives or girlfriends who may actually like racing are around to see the filth. I am talking about removing other people’s rubber. Also known as, “OPR”.
This is what was under my car after this weekend. (the lighter is there just to get an idea of the amount)
