Racing Stock Cars with Tyler McQuarrie & Learning to Master a Jericho Dog Box
The J-Turn: Episode 13
On this episode of The J-Turn, I load up the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition and head up the California coast with a few of my colleagues from Bike Magazine. Starting in Los Angeles, we road trip more than 400 miles north to Sonoma Raceway to drive a full bore V8 stock car and attempt to master its 4-speed Jericho dog box transmission. My stock car instructor for the day at Simraceway Performance Driving Center is Tyler McQuarrie, a professional race car driver known for competing in a diverse array of motorsports events, from NASCAR to Formula Drift to The American Le Mans Series. In addition to recently starting his own drifting team, he’s also a driving instructor and has trained accomplished racers such as Scott Speed, JR Hildebrand, Bill Elliott, Scott Riggs, Stanton Barrett, Regan Smith, and Luis Diez.
