The first 45min went by pretty normally. The last hour was a bit more hectic; the last 15min was downright crazy (exactly why we switched me into the last stint) with a few different double-yellows because of contact and was hectic restarts where I wasn't the only one pushing hard for spots! The first vid here is the last 45mins or so.
As I mentioned, it got more hectic. Racing between local yellows and trying to time when a double-yellow will drop are 2 pretty difficult things to master. Get it wrong and you can cause a wreck, injure a corner worker (very very bad), lose positions and/or incur a penalty. Get it right and it's pretty sweet, fun, and definitely rewarding!
All in all, I pulled the car up to 20th and with a DQ in the top finishers, we ended up 19th overall out of 42 cars. 22 laps behind the leader and 7 laps out of 15th. I figure that we lost 5-8 laps with the spin in stint #3 - which was the only spin for the team. I am happy to say the entire team kept it clean; no car contact and no black flags! Pretty much what I thought as we had a solid chance at 15th w/o the spin. The 2 newbs were obviously slower, but we all expected that and by keeping it clean I thought they did a pretty solid job. Pitstops were hastily planned, but executed pretty well with regards to fuel and driver changes. We never checked any setup on the car at all - which I thought was a mistake. We would eventually check the tire pressures after the race and find the fronts to be 42 and 55!
The last vid here is the final 3 laps of the race - keep in mind that's the final 3 laps of an 8 hr race! It should give you a good snapshot of what things are like with managing slower and faster traffic, not passing under yellows, timing passes, etc.
We'd be doing the same thing tomorrow; another 7 hours!
