Viper Racing League - 8/29/09 - Texas World Speedway
This is my first race with the Viper Racing League (Viper Days/NARRA) at
Texas World Speedway on Saturday 8/29/09. We have a rolling start with a
pace car and ran 12 laps for about 30 minutes. I edited this video from the
30 minute race down to 10 minutes so it would fit within the YouTube! time
limit. We also had a 26 lap inverted race on Sunday for about 50 minutes
but my camera messed up and I only got the first lap and it shut off.
Anyway, I came in 3rd place in both races behind the World Challenge
competition coupes which are much faster and have better drivers. I was
extremely happy to come in 3rd. In this race, I started out in the 3rd row
inside and managed to get behind Tom in his white/blue comp coupe. I chased
him most of the race just waiting for a mistake. He began losing his tires
and I managed to stick my nose in on turn 13. He was gracious and let me by
but could have easily kept me from passing. We were pretty even the whole
race and it was tons of fun. Thanks, Tom! The next race is Roebling Road in
Georgia and then off to Daytona on the Rolex Series course.

This is session 3 with NASA at Motor Sports Ranch Hoston TX. January 31,

speed and turns - I hope to go back again soon.
Texas World Speedway May 22 Clockwise in Viper ACR
NARRA/Viper Days. Texas World Speedway clockwise in Viper ACR. My second
track day in the car and first weekend running clockwise. White Run Group
on PS2 tires. This is the first 10 minutes of a 30 minute session and I'm
just getting into a groove.
TWS PDS CCW Viper ACR 91910.mpg
These are my two quickest laps of the weekend. The TWS PDS is the best if
you want safe, fun and well managed track time. I always have a blast at
this venue. Traffic was not too bad although it did prevent me from
getting quicker times. This is more because White & Yellow were combined.
The drivers in this event are awesome as they were VERY respectful and
really worked well with each other.
MSRH CW Viper ACR 101010.MPG
These are a few of my fastest laps of the day. I had a blast. A Supra and
a RX7 were keeping me on my toes this event. Thanks for the push guys!
Elise Corvette and Exige at Harris Hill Road
An instructor session during a Driver's Edge HPDE event. The Elise has
nitrons and RA1s, the Exige has a track pack and R888s. The Corvette has
full slicks and has been modified quite a bit (not sure on all the
details). As you can see the lighter weight of the Lotus cars give them the
ability to hang with a car with more than double the horsepower and much better
tires. All three drivers have quite a bit of track time. The Corvette's
passenger got a bit scared, so the Corvette got off pace at the end.
