Baer Brakes' Speed-Stop Challenge proved one of the more difficult events to master. The idea was that you launched from a dead stop, accelerated, and then came to a stop inside a 50-foot box at the end of the run. If you stopped too soon or blew through the back of the box, you got a big fat DNF. With only three shots allowed, some drivers just couldn't find the right spot to slam on the brakes. Here, James Shipka launches on his way to a 14.246 second run. As evidence of how tough this event was, David Pozzi ran the same car but placed far lower with a 14.977, showing that timing was everything in this event.
