NARRA - USGTC - Saturday Race @ Texas World Speedway, Sept 3, 2011
This is the start and the first few laps of the Saturday race. Fun start,
potentially fun race, but about halfway in, my right rear tire started
losing air due to a bad O-ring in the valve stem. I tried to hang on until
the finish of the race and then less than 2 laps from the end, I lost all
power and coasted to a stop off the track. I had to be towed in. I sat in
the car for maybe 15 minutes until getting towed and it was 143 degrees in
the car. Ugh... I didn't get to race on Sunday because Archer and Dodge
were unable to identify the problem. Fortunately, it was a short drive back
to DFW from TWS.
NARRA - Sunday Race @ Motorsport Park Hastings - August 7th, 2011
This is the Sunday race in-car video from rolling start to checkered flag.
I started on tires which had 2 qualifyings and 1 race already on them and
the tires began to fall off about halfway into the race. I just tried to
hang on and not do anything stupid and not lose the lead. I'm glad the race
didn't go any more laps because the tires were really getting greasy. :)
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.

700hp Z06 - Texas World Speedway
C6 Z06 running at the HPD track day at Texas World Speedway. This car is
making around 700hp at the flywheel. Sorry about the wind noise, I'm going
to start recording audio from inside the car with a digital recorder so the
sound will be much better.
