A few laps with Tommy Archer - Viper Days - Texas World Speedway - May 22, 2010
This is Tommy Archer driving my car at Texas World Speedway during one of my race practice sessions for Viper Days. He was consistently running 1:46s in the clockwise direction with me (200 lbs) in the passenger seat. Tommy was working with me and helping setup my car.
Texas World Speedway May 22 Clockwise in Viper ACR
NARRA/Viper Days. Texas World Speedway clockwise in Viper ACR. My second track day in the car and first weekend running clockwise. White Run Group on PS2 tires. This is the first 10 minutes of a 30 minute session and I'm just getting into a groove.
NASA TX & Texas World Speedway - Dodge Viper 'Rogue ACR-X' - April 25th, 2010
This is Race 3. Race 1 and 2 were not so good for me. Race 1 I was rear ended. Race 2 they called us to grid in 5 minutes and yet the race had already left. Go figure. So, before I went home, I just wanted to get in a decent race. I started out 11th because of the Race 2 fiasco. I managed to get to 3rd which wasn't so bad considering it was a 7 lap race. 7 laps? Whatever. Here's the video. Enjoy!

- Red Run Group
Best track session of the day. My car, driven by my brother. Lap times are as follows:
2:05:47, 2:07:xx, 2:06:xx
Day one was a bust with balding rear tires and rain. But day two turned out to be beautiful. Started to rebuild my confidence again so the lap times aren't that great. By the end of the day I had just broken into the sub 2:15:xx. Fast lap of the weekend set by tanman311 at ~2.05.47.
A spin, a panic, and a stolen pass
Video from The Driver's Edge HPDE at Texas World Speedway on 14-Mar-2010. Red run group, second day, first session. Camera car is a Porsche GT3 RS.
Several mistakes here -- a red Cobalt SS spins in turn 14, four wheels off. The driver in the GT-R seemed to be really distressed by the spin and comes to a near stop at the entry of the corner causing a pile-up of cars behind him. Then an opportunistic yellow Corvette "steals" a pass from the stopped traffic. This was during a DE event where no passing is permitted without a signal from the lead car.
Generally you'd expect better decison-making from red group drivers.

Dodge Viper ACR racing at Daytona International Speedway with PBOC and Viper Days
Here is a 10 min video of Chad McNiel and David McNiel trip to Daytona - First are random pictures of the cars and track and then on to racing.... Chad Raced his SRT-4 Neon in the Challenge group of Viper Days and PBOC Florida Chapter and hit speeds in the 140's.... Me, well I in the race group and was toping out around 170 on the main straight...The track was fairly challenging and was very fast. A ton of walls and things to hit if you went off - During the 2-hour endurance race on Saturday 4 cars had blowouts - 2 of which hit the wall and had a lot of damage.... I think they learned a lot about proper tire pressures that day. Lots of cars from raced from BMW, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, corvette and Comp Coupe Viper and yes the Dodge Viper ACR; Kevin Ferguson and Brad Gorrondana from the Dallas area with their ACRs were with us too.

Texas World Speedway Porsche 911 off into the infield
A Porsche 911 spins off into the infield off the back straight of Texas World Speedway on November 8, 2009. HPDE run by The Driver's Edge. Posted by request of the driver, view from rear-facing camera on a car in front of the Porsche. It's pretty far back, but you can still see what happened. Nobody hurt but a bumper and a bruised ego.
