Bucky Lasek racing in a Viper ACR-X Cup race
I had the pleasure of being invited to attend as a celebrity driver to one of this years 2010 Viper ACR-X cup races which was held at the Pocono Int. raceway. The Viper has 650hp and 605lbs of torque. I hit the top speed of 170mph and corner speeds were as high as 150mph. Needless to say I had a blast and I even got a podium finish. Thank you Cindi and Fred Lux of LUX performance and also Gary Johnson of Dodge.
2011 Dodge Viper Cup Round 1 - Sebring
Morgan wins first Dodge Viper Cup Race of 2011 Newcomer A.J. Morgan, a 21-year-old veteran racer from Darien, Ill., won the first Dodge Viper Cup race of the 2011 season. He averaged 28.5 mph on a drying track, passing Texan Ben Keating prior to the back straight on the final lap at Sebring International Raceway, Sebring Florida on Saturday. That's not a misprint. The average speed is correct. The race was only four laps long; two under full course yellow after Dave Fiorelli's single-car crash right at the green flag took out the concrete wall just past the starting line. The race was finally stopped while crews repaired the wall, then the field formed for a scored lap behind the pace car leading to the re-start with Morgan at the head of the single file pack. The starter threw the green and the white flag NASCAR style, and the race came down to one flying lap free-for-all to the checker. Keating grabbed the lead from Morgan into the first turn, but Morgan jumped on a chance to get him back late in the lap: "I got beside him coming out of ten," said Morgan, a former go kart and midget driver. "We hit some puddles into the next turn and touched. A little rough racing, but I held him off to the end. We have a little work tonight to make sure the left front is OK for tomorrow." Billy Gropp brought his Dodge Viper ACR-X from sixth to third during the lap while World Challenge vet Jeff Courtney came fourth in the melee. Fiorelli was unhurt in the crash, but had to convince the rescue crew that the blood on his driving suit came from a small cut earlier in the day in the pits and not from the wall banging. His car was too damaged to run in Sunday's Race 2.
