Driving Buttonwillow

More of a request, but just copying Craig so he doesn't have to make another one. Gonna be there 8/1 for Don's event and it'll be my first time. Any tips/pointers would be great.

Speaking of Buttonwillow..here is some video of me on track there. I am the white BMW 335i that passes the car with the camera in it. Enjoy. This was my first trip to Buttonwillow in the last 7 years..so I was a bit rusty there...but eventually I sped up. :)
