Drag Racing the C6 Corvette

My first 1/4 mile Drag Race at Union Grove WI with the 2009 Hot Rod Power Tour. My buddy Dan was my co pilot. The Big Block Camaro red lighted so I won the race. The car was running on 87 octane because that's all that was available because the Hot Rod Power Tour ran the gas station out of premium. Enjoy the video!

Corvette Drag Racing Top 4 Runs | Stock C6 Grand Sport
So it was time for me to get new tires and I decided to go Drag Racing instead of doing burnouts in some random parking lot. I went over the course of 3 weekends: 1st weekend was 3 runs, 2nd weekend was 45 runs, and 3rd weekend was 16 runs. These clips are from the last weekend. When I started my tires were roughly 18 months old @ roughly 25,000 miles with less than 4mm of tread depth. Due to several track days at VIR and mountain excursions they were hard from all the heat cycles. Prior to these adventures I had never been at/on/or participated in any form of drag racing. I had no coaching, no practice, and for the most part had no idea what I was doing. My goals were simple: Don’t crash, Have fun, Go as fast as possible. Car: 2013 Corvette Grand Sport Trans: 6 Speed Manual Engine: 6.2L LS3 Stock Everything Factory NPP, Performance Exhaust with Fuse 10 Removed during all Runs Tires: RunFlat - Bridgestone Potenza Pole Positions, (Front 275mm/18inch, Rears 325mm/19inch) Driver: Rookie, 5’11”, approx 200 pounds.
