racing weekend at Road Atlanta.
Some of the many insane cars participating include:
Ferrari 360 Challenge
Dodge Viper RT/10

AMG Black Series, surrounded by many other AMGs, including another SLS
under a cover, a third CLK 63 AMG Black Series on the other side of the

NASA SE June Jam 2011 Saturday Thunder Race
After leading the Saturday ST2 race at Rd Atl, I had a Mustang running me really hard any
chance he got close in traffic. I didn't really understand why he was doing
that, but had a good time racing with him anyway. He managed to get by me
twice in the race in traffic, but I was able to get back around him both
times and pull away with ease. With 2 laps to go in the race, I had an ABS
failure that caught me by suprise in T7 and nearly threw it off track. The
Mustang went around and I
tucked him behind him deciding not to race with him any longer and put it
on cruise control since I had such a big lead on the rest of the guys in my
Here's the good part. It turns out that he was in my class all along and I
didn't even know it (no class stickers on his car). I placed 2nd.

Buttonwillow Raceway 13 CW NASA Pro Racing March 10, 2011
A great time with friends and competators. Was down on good tires but great
fun pushing the truck at it's adhesive limits. Wanted to keep up with the
66 truck but its grunt was just too much. Not too mention the Blue Mazda GT
again blocked me and I almost did a loop in that very same corner with him
several months ago! Got some good vid of my friend John and his well sorded
Porsche and a very tight white rotary.
2011 CTS-V (Road Atlanta) - Day 2 Run 1
NASA HPDE 1 - March 13, 2011
This was the first run of the second day... I got to grid first again so I
had a wide open track before running into lapped traffic. Passed a good
number of people. I was running in the 1:40's when I had a clear track...
Top speed on the back straight... 152 MPH
I'm driving a fully stock 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan.
NASA Southeast Sprint Race 2 @ Road Atlanta, June 2011, #350 PTA/ST2 350Z
Sprint race 2 with NASA SE. I ran ST2 since there were 14 cars in that
class and no one in PTA. My Z is 80whp low on what is allowed for ST2 and
it was a Corvette dominated race group, so I had my work cut out for me!
Til this race weekend, I had not driven at Road Atlanta in 3 years so I was
way off from the front runner pace. Despite that, it was a great weekend of
close and clean racing. This race was cut short after a full course caution
due to several cars with mechanical issues breaking down at the same time
so we ended up finishing the race under yellow. I finished this race 12th
overall, 9th out of 12 in class. Best lap was a 1:41.7,
NASA Florida Sprint Race 2 @ HMS, March 2011, #350 PTA 350Z
Some video from the Sunday Thunder sprint race with NASA FL. Qualified
second overall, 1st in class in a 15 car field. The pole car on my left was
a IMSA Lite prototype. On the start, something fell into his lap
distracting him as the green flag came out. I got a 3 - 4 car lengths on
the field through the first few turns. With our brake problems fixed, I had
more confidence in the car and was able to check out on the in class
competition. At the half way point, I went into cruise mode until the
checker. Best lap of the race was a 1:38.8, in the second lap.
