Cool clips of the drifting. Don't know how much that helps your lap time, LOL.

Definitely more of the former than the latter. For the fast way, see if you can find videos from Ralph Warren, Mickey Miller, or Brett Strom. Those guys know their way around Buttonwillow.

Definitely that is just the fun way around the track not the fast way! Video of the fast way doesn't seem to be as entertaining. Later in the day it was 100+ degrees and times were getting slower and slower so I like to have some fun out there.

In the summer, BW is usually fastest early in the second session on track. Greasy in the really hot stuff. Nasty greasy.

Yup. I've driven Buttonwillow in the heat (and with sub par tires) it gets greasy and slow... Nice car control though!
