This is a 1-minute original music video I made of most of a lap at Portland International Raceway on 9-10-2016. It was the first time my dad got to ride along with me. It was the third session of the morning, and I wasn't intending to turn on all of my GoPro stuff until I got faster later in the day.

I had the laser scope on, I was drivin’

Workin' on a mystery, I’m thinkin it’s an F-Type Jag
Runnin' down a dream
