On October 22nd, 2010, I traveled to Englishtown Raceway to film a “missile day” with Tony Angelo and Ryan Tuerck.
Ryan and I arrived at the track while Tony was having a battle with his own car. After picking up an FC in Florida, Tony made the trek up to NJ, blowing up 2 turbos in the process.
Once at the track and two laps in, Tony destroyed a third turbo leaving him without a missile for the day. Thankfully, Ryan’s brother Justin lent Tony his car for only 30 minutes, giving us enough time to shoot this video.
Ryan’s car, on the other hand, had it’s own problems throughout the day (missing key = hot-wiring the ignition, e-brake failure, front and rear main seals leaking *12 quarts of oil were used in the course of three hours at the track*)
Enjoy it, because we sure didn’t.
