DETROIT (Feb. 28, 2013) — In NASCAR racing, tire changes happen so fast, it's sometimes tough to appreciate what's really going on.
Check out this video from www.uRaceIfilm.com on YouTube that shows tire changer Chris Winchell's perspective as he changes the two front tires of David Gilliland's car last year at Homestead Miami Speedway for a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
In addition to Mr. Winchell's speed and precision, it's also pretty cool to see a rotor get so hot that it's on fire and turns purple.
