1969 Ford Cobra Fastback 428 Super Cobra Jet V8 3.91 Gears
I thought you might like a look at this awesome 1969 Ford Cobra. This mean
looking fastback muscle car is powered by a balanced and blueprinted 428
Super Cobra Jet V8, equipped with forged pistons, Comp cam, MSD
Distributor, and an Edelbrock RPM intake. All that power is being sent
through a built C6 automatic, back to a 9 inch rear with 3.91 Gears, Moser
31 spline axles, and Trac lok. This car has also been upgraded with
Wilwood Disc brakes at all four wheels and numerous suspension mods as
well. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for taking a look!

Texas World Speedway (TWS) - 2.9mi CCW
The video starts with my best lap from the weekend, then continues (@
03:00) with various highlights, antics, and pictures from the event.
In 2014 I am trying to knock the dust off my driving skills after only
having the Lotus at the track 3 times in 2013, and one time in 2014 before
this trip. It really makes a difference if you don't practice often!
We have had a camera in the car at most of the driving events we have
attended. Every year or so I create highlight videos of all the events on
BlueRay for myself and my friends. However, since this might have been my
last opportunity to take the 4 hour drive down from Dallas to attend an
event at Texas World Speedway (TWS) I am posting this video to YouTube due
to its nostalgic content.
It was announced early in 2014 that TWS will be re-developed into a
neighborhood. At the time of this writing it is uncertain if we will get
to drive at TWS in 2015. Do yourself a favor and search the Internet for
historical TWS information. You will soon realize why it is tragic that we
are losing this historic track.

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.
Jason Hart: McLaren P1 New Texas World Speedway Track Record 1:45.837
This is a New Track Record at TWS for an OEM street tire, street legal,
showroom stock vehicle. Joey Todd who handles the record keeping was on
hand and verified the event, Thanks Joey. I must admit the Trofeo R's do
very well, but the pressure the P1 puts on them makes for a tidy lap or you
risk putting too much heat in them resulting in loss of lap time. The P1
hit a sustained peak G of 1.79 in Turn 7!!! Most impressive for a 245 front
tire even with the uphill compression of the car. I am beyond impressed
with the aero, drive train and overall engineering of this car. The point
which gets the most respect ahead of all others is the owners desire to
track this car with commitment...it is a great opportunity to be chosen and
trusted with such resources and for that I am also Thankful beyond words. I
hope you enjoy the video if you watch it...J
Texas World Speedway - The Oval
Texas World Speedway was a NASCAR oval track, but is no longer used for
that. Unfortunately there was an metal to metal accident during our
session. We got to drive on the oval to drive around the accident and get
back to the paddock.
The condition is not so hot. It is also unnerving to drive the bank at such
slow speeds. As you can hear I was properly nervous while heading around
