I was young and stupid once and know that so many things can go wrong with screwing around on the street. If anything good comes from Paul Walker’s accident for his fans, auto enthusiasts, and the motorsports, auto aftermarket, and performance industry, I hope it’s that people keep it off the street and realize the importance of supporting the safer environment of race tracks nationwide instead of trying to shut them down.

I keep coming back to this theme. I love how lightweight and easy to use it is. Will customize it again at some point. But no time right now.

My Father and I would like to thank Kyle Tucker, Ryan Mathews, Stacy Tucker and the entire Detroit Speed Inc. team for choosing our HammerHead IRS Differential Housing for their all out assault on one of the most grueling and brutal mechanical and physical contests in American Motorsports: The Brock Yates’ One Lap of America. “One Lap” to the uninitiated consists of 20 individual racing events at race tracks across the country over the course of 7 days and 3000+ miles. The car must be driven from track to track with two co-drivers and no support vehicles other than the tools and parts they could carry in a small trailer behind the race vehicle.
The Car started as a stock 2013 SS Camaro and was converted into an all out street legal race car over 8 weeks. The full build and journey can be seen here: http://detroitspeed.com/speednews/OLOA-2013/OLOA-2013-pg-1.html

I was on the road a ton recently so I did not get the chance to celebrate St. Patrick’s day as I normally do. So I did so tonight. My grandfather George Keefe I believe was 100% Irish which should make me at least 1/4 Irish. I have the pale complexion and reddish blonde hair to prove it. So I do like to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day complete with Corned Beef and Cabbage, Guiness or a good Red Irish Ale (Conway’s from Great Lakes Brewing Company is my pick).
Historians tell us that corned beef and cabbage is a dish that Irish American immigrants created using Corned Beef procured from Jewish neighbors in New York City as a substitute for traditional Irish Bacon. So I have tried a lot of corned beef and cabbage in my time, and almost all of it is terrible. Which is why people only eat it once a year, outside of a sandwich or hash. But I found one recipe from a friend’s family that is my all time favorite. It’s even so good I don’t just make it on St. Patrick’s Day.
Orange Glazed Corned Beef
1 Flat Cut Corned Beef Brisket (3-4lbs)
Prepare according to package
(for this recipe I prefer to not include the spice packet but it’s up to you.)
1 cup of orange juice (fresh squeezed is best)
Zest of 1 orange
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon corn starch
1/2 stick salted butter
To make sauce:
In small pan, simmer orange juice, zest, brown sugar, and corn starch. Get the mixture bubbling. Stir continuously to avoid sticking, burning or overflowing. Once the sauce is reduced to a syrup like consistency, remove from heat, add butter and stir/whisk till melted and combined.
Note: Prepare the sauce just before the brisket comes out of the boiling water.
Remove brisket from water, trim excess fat and place into foil lined 13×9 glass bakeware or cookie sheet. Glaze with the sauce (reserve a little to top off your meat and traditional boiled vegetables if you like) Finish by baking in the oven at 350 for 20-30 minutes until the glaze forms a nice crust. Let rest for 10-15 minutes and slice (against the grain).
