Back in December, I went to watch the first half of the 25 Hours of Thunderhill race, held up in Willows, CA. During my time there, I learned a bit about what it takes to finish, let alone to win, a long endurance race: preparation, skill, and a bit of luck.

In the photo, brake rotors glow as the #18 Davidson Racing RCR Eagle chases the #00 Motorsport Solutions / Ehret Family Winery Porsche 997 Cup car into Turn 9 after nightfall. Slower lap times but superior reliability would have the #00 car win the race, 9 laps ahead of the #18 by the time the checker dropped.
