episode 736: Crew Show (Valkyrie ride, hypercar track day, CT5-V vs world, Q&A)

What's it like going around Laguna Seca in the $4M 1000HP street-legal race-ready Aston Martin Valkyrie?! INSANE. 

We're talking all things Hypercar Invitational. Which cars were there? How fast were they driven? What's it like to ride with The Stig? How much slower (or faster) is the Cadillac CT5-V than a hypercar? Plus, Matt rode in the Aston Martin Valkyrie, a car so fast it changed a man's mind. We talk about what it is, road car vs race car, why it exists, and what time it ran at Laguna. Also, 7-figure 1/2 mile drags, expensive garages, weird shoes, and Q&A.
