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.

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.
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.
Spec Racer Ford GEN3 @ Texas World Speedway May 24, 2014
In this cheesy narrated video, I talk about driving the first privately
built GEN3 SRF conversion. G30006 is the motor serial number. This is also
a new car to me (chassis #868) and I've never even sat in it until this
race. We never checked the suspension, camber/toe/caster, alignment, sway
bars or any other settings because we needed all the time just to get the
motor running. So, the first time I drove the car was in a race and I
started in the back in P32. I completed the race in P11. I raced again on
Sunday and we had a chance to tune the suspension. I started P29 and
finished P3. The car was much better and I learned my shift points from the
1:17.2 lap time NASA Time Trial Motorsport Ranch - Cresson 1.7CCW
March 9, 2014 2010 Corvette ZR1 - mods: race seats, harnesses, harness bar,
poly bushings, camber kit, Finspeed wheels, Michelin race slicks.
Two back to back 1:17.x laps albeit with sloppy driving and some traffic.
Downside to race slicks is they take a while to heat up which isn't ideal
for time trial format, so traffic issues can be a problem. Great weekend
and great fun running with a great group of NASA Texas people.
