2011 Dodge Viper Cup Round 1 - Sebring

Morgan wins first Dodge Viper Cup Race of 2011 Newcomer A.J. Morgan, a 21-year-old veteran racer from Darien, Ill., won the first Dodge Viper Cup race of the 2011 season. He averaged 28.5 mph on a drying track, passing Texan Ben Keating prior to the back straight on the final lap at Sebring International Raceway, Sebring Florida on Saturday. That's not a misprint. The average speed is correct. The race was only four laps long; two under full course yellow after Dave Fiorelli's single-car crash right at the green flag took out the concrete wall just past the starting line. The race was finally stopped while crews repaired the wall, then the field formed for a scored lap behind the pace car leading to the re-start with Morgan at the head of the single file pack. The starter threw the green and the white flag NASCAR style, and the race came down to one flying lap free-for-all to the checker. Keating grabbed the lead from Morgan into the first turn, but Morgan jumped on a chance to get him back late in the lap: "I got beside him coming out of ten," said Morgan, a former go kart and midget driver. "We hit some puddles into the next turn and touched. A little rough racing, but I held him off to the end. We have a little work tonight to make sure the left front is OK for tomorrow." Billy Gropp brought his Dodge Viper ACR-X from sixth to third during the lap while World Challenge vet Jeff Courtney came fourth in the melee. Fiorelli was unhurt in the crash, but had to convince the rescue crew that the blood on his driving suit came from a small cut earlier in the day in the pits and not from the wall banging. His car was too damaged to run in Sunday's Race 2.

2011 Dodge Viper Cup Round 2 - Sebring
Jeff Courtney survived an event-filled race to take Dodge Viper Cup Race Two this weekend at Sebring International Raceway. He was gridded third for the standing start and fell in behind second fast qualifier A.J. Morgan as pole man Ben Keating got a great start and entered the fast Turn One car lengths ahead of the pack. Keating did not make it through as he carried too much speed and spun off into the tire wall. He was able to back out, taking a few tires with him, and re-joined the field in last place, his passenger door stove in and various parts loosened in the undercarriage. The course was under a full-course yellow for two laps and when the race went green Courtney out-dragged Morgan, taking a short-lived lead until Morgan got a good run on him out onto the back stretch and went by. Morgan led easily, but for only a couple of laps before losing his clutch. He slowed entering that same back stretch and Courtney went by again. "At around Bishop's Bend I wanted to go from four to three and it wouldn't go," Said Morgan. "Then I noticed that the clutch pedal was flat on the floor." Morgan dropped way back as he sorted out clutchless shifting and Billy Gropp's Mopar Dodge Viper inherited second place. Gropp was black-flagged for an alleged yellow flag violation and served a drive-through penalty re-entering the fray in last place. That penalty is under review by race officials, so the finishing order is not yet official. Morgan got going again but then blew a front tire and was out of the race. By then Courtney had a huge lead on new second place man Todd Nelson. Keating clawed his way back up to third, dragging his undertray behind. Back in the paddock he acted as if he had won the race after an epic drive. Dave Fiorelli drove Keating's back-up car in the race after heavily damaging his own Dodge Viper ACR-X at the start of Race One.





2011 Dodge Viper Cup Round 5 -- 
Virginia International Raceway
Ben Keating continued his dominance of the Dodge Viper Cup series by taking the pole by nearly one-and-a-half seconds and leading all the way to the race victory. Jeff Courtney qualified on the front row, but let Ted Hughes through into second after a bad start. He was back ahead of Hughes by lap two, but by that time Keating was a hundred yards ahead and flying. Courtney pecked away at Keating's lead each lap, but was too far back and never got close enough to challenge. He finished second, but had the race's fastest lap. Hughes held position the rest of the way and gained his first podium finish. "I got a good start," said Keating, "But Ted got a great start, and tucked in behind me going into the first corner and that gave me a little bit of margin ahead of Jeff. I got ahead by three and a half seconds and I was able to manage that. He was a second and a half behind at the end, which was enough." Two-time race winner A. J. Morgan had electrical gremlins in the morning practice session and was unable to qualify, so he had to start the race from the last row. "We had a shorted wire in the system and it took three hours to find and fix it," said Morgan. "Then we had to go out and take a hardship lap just to shake everything down, make sure it worked, and right after that went up to the grid and went out and ran [the race]. There was no time to rest. That was tough. I have nothing left in me." Morgan passed six cars on the first lap, crossing the start-finish line in 10th-place. From there he marched up the order, passing two more ViperACR-Xs on the third lap and ending the race in fourth place after passing Dave Fiorelli three laps from the end. Fiorelli scored his second straight fifth place finish. Eric Galerne, in sixth place, had one of his best results since starting the series. Connie Bogan, too, had a good result with a seventh, while Brian Makse, one of the two celebrity drivers brought his Viper ACR-X in eighth. Chris Burandt, the other celebrity driver, finished 16th. "It was frickin' awesome," said Burandt. "I got behind the Number 3 car [driven by David Mazyck] and we just had a battle all day. At the start I got into turn one way too hot and I didn't look at the corner, I just looked at Number 3's bumper saying 'uh oh, uh oh.' So much fun." "I was just focused on keeping Chris behind me," said Mazyck. "He was all over me. There were six of us all within tenths of each other in qualifying [Brad Gorrondona, Larry Carter, Brian Makse, Bernie Katz, Mazyck and Chris Burandt in that order qualified at 2 minutes, two seconds and change], so we were looking forward to the race, but guys ahead of us were spinning and that gapped us." "Just fantastic," said Makse, "I was just clicking off laps, kind of lost from the cars in front, but made sure the cars behind stayed behind." Keating extended his lead after five rounds, the halfway point, in the 2011 Dodge Viper Cup Series Presented by Pennzoil.

"The 25 Speed Rain Darkness Damage Glory" Nissan Team Diary At The 25 Hours Of Thunderhill
A lone and scrappy Nissan Sentra SE-R run by LeMons / ChumpCar alumni ran against Honda and Mazda factory efforts at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. Here is how they Survived the 25. We showed up at Thunderhill like any confident/cocky racing team. We thought we would win it. The only problem was there were 68 other teams that thought they were going to win. The nerve of those guys. We found a few issues to worry about during testing on Thursday. We learned that getting the car off the ground in the bypass (Turn 5) was cool for the photographer, but it made the suspension work way too hard. We trashed a wheel bearing which needed to be replaced. Jumping the car also destroyed the main front wiring harness from the left front tire rubbing (thus losing power to the headlamps and making seeing at night quite difficult). This little discovery kept Craig Rohning, Simeon Gracy, Dan "Gadet" Bordeau and AJ Gracy up late thrashing on the car to get it ready for qualifying. We also found out during testing that the little SE-R was running 94.5 decibels on a track with a 95 maximum sound limit. We decided to play it safe and redo the Exhaust, requiring one to be fabricated by Napa Valley Muffler and delivered by Bay Ex directly to the track ASAP. It arrived just in time and was bolted on two minutes before qualifying. The new Exhaust worked great for diverting sound, and it also worked great at diverting carbon monoxide into the cab of the Nissan. Wanna get high anyone?





2011 Dodge Viper Cup Round 3 -- New Jersey Motorsports Park
Ben Keating, Jeff Courtney and A.J. Morgan qualified within 4 tenths of each other this morning, setting up a very competitive Dodge Viper Cup Race Presented by Pennzoil this afternoon at New Jersey Motorsports Park. Pole sitter Keating led from the start, closely followed by Courtney and Morgan in a rousing fight almost to the finish. With three laps to go and Courtney pressuring Keating, there was contact and both went off, no fault to either. "I feel bad for both Ben and our guys as we had a great car and we were battling for 1st and 2nd at the time late in the race," said a disappointed Courtney. Keating was able to get going again, but had to stop to replace a cut-down tire, putting him a lap down. Morgan managed to avoid the melee and inherit the lead, while Courtney was done for the day. Morgan finished nearly half a minute clear of second place man Dave Fiorelli, who was in a fight with Michael Von Quilich. They finished three tenths apart. Guest Driver Andy Bell was fourth, just ahead of Billy Gropp, who was charging back from his own problems, including an off-track excursion. "I've never sat in a Dodge Viper before," said Bell, a professional freestyle motocross rider and holder of nine Guinness World Records. "It's an absolute beast out there. One misstep with your foot and you're doing 360s -- there's just that much torque and horsepower. And it's so much fun. I mean; you're just getting slammed back in your seat as you're accelerating out of corners. I've seen people saying on my Twitter and Facebook, 'Hey, we love Viper Cup, we're coming out to watch'." Guest Driver Jimmy Kite, a veteran Indy Car, USAC sprint car and NASCAR driver finished seventh, less than three tenths of a second behind Todd Nelson. Keating recovered to eighth place just tenths of a second ahead of David Mazyck while Courtney was tenth, three laps down. The weekend hasn't been easy so far, according to Morgan, "We were dealing with pretty sizable understeer, and we couldn't get it out of the car. So we put on those stiffer springs, and that helped out a lot. We've got a lot of work to do. We have to see what we can do to improve the car. It's not over yet." The second Dodge Viper Cup race—the fourth of the ten-race series—is on Sunday at New Jersey Motorsports Park.
