1:18.515 lap time @ NASA TT Trial 8 - MSR Cresson 1.7 CCW
This is my fastest lap at MSR Cresson during the NASA Time Trials on March 15th, 2009. The track was very "green" this weekend because of lots of rain so I was surprised to do this well. I also started losing my tires and you can hear a lot of squealing going on. Hopefully this video will have sound. ;) With a good track, tires and proper pressures, 1:17s are likely.

Corvettes and Viper passing through lots of traffic at MSR 1.7 CW - Driver's Edge - Red Run Group
This is a snippet of a session in the Red run group at Drivers Edge on the
1.7 CW of Motorsport Ranch in Cresson. There is a ton of traffic and then
me and 2 Corvettes threading our way through it all. Bob was adament about
not letting anybody by him. The 3 of us ended up being told to not drive so
closely by MSR. Lap times don't matter with this many cars on the track so
please ignore that part. :) Anybody know how to get Corvette yellow paint
off Viper blue paint? :) Just kidding... Thanks Bob and Ron for the fun.

My two Lotus Exige spins at MSR Houston CCW
2007 Lotus Exige S on Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec.
Both these spins occurred in the next-to-last lap of the last sessions of
my track days. Maybe you will learn something from my mistakes. I did, but
only after the fact.
The last was by far the most violent spin I've ever had. I became
disoriented and lost all track of which way my tires were pointing while I
was skidding on tarmac. Had I been able to suss out my direction of travel
and straightened the wheel while I had the wheels locked up, I would have
exited the track backwards instead of sideways, and considerably reduced
the risk of a roll-over.
MSR Cresson 1.7 CCW Apex Driving Academy Instructor Session
A COLD and VERY WINDY day on March 21, 2010 out at MSR, this is a session
being picked up right after I let the other instructor in his C2 on Hoosier
R6s by as I was still warming up my tires. After that I try my butt off to
match his pace or catch him.
My fastest time of the day, timed with the Max Q data iPhone app was a
I suffer still from some understeer mainly at Horse shoe and Wagon Wheel,
and the wind was actually blowing me off line in Boot hill and Tombstone,
but overall I think I drove around the issues alright for the most part.
Buzzard neck seems to be getting more bumpy too.
Dodge Viper ACRs chasing each other around Motorsport Ranch in Cresson, TX
David, Brad and I are chasing one another around MSR on this cool but fine
Sunday afternoon in Cresson, TX. David decides to leave the track in Big
Bend and then Brad decides to leave the track in Wagon Wheel. I have them
both on video in front and in the rear. You'll probably see fuel coming
from my car and David's car. We filled up just prior to this session and we
both have fuel dumping from our overflow.

In too much of a hurry to warm up cold tires in February
A nice cold day in February and on the first lap I go off because I didn't
let my tires warm up, was listening to music, and wasn't paying close
attention to details. Although you see dust and dirt over the hood, what
you don't see is much more dust and dirt and rocks coming through my driver
side window. Regardless, I bucked up and kept going after this to get my
best time of the day which was a 1:18.7. I also bent the rear fins which
fortunately bent back out straight.
