Drivers Edge Video
Here is a video of me at Drivers EDGE last weekend - Basically at Drivers
EDGE you learn assorted evasive maneuvers in a really nice BMW 328 Coupe,
such as Quick Braking, Evasive maneuvering, and how to get out of a skid.
Drivers EDGE is a very useful program for new drivers, visit them at

TWS Z06 881 INSTRUCTOR DRIVING
I let my instructor drive the vette at TWS on Saturday. Everything seems a
bit faster from the passenger
side. There is a nice Porsche spin in this clip.
Mustang Cobra vs Ferrari 355 Challenge at TWS

until SOMEONE took a trip offroad at 13 and they black flagged the session.
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.
