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.

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.

the fastest road course in North America, Brainerd International Raceway
STi BIR 2.5-mile Road Course 6/25/2011 '1:59 laps'
Please disregard the sound. I only had GoPro this time around and if it's
far from a sound source it picks up way too much wind sound. Next time I'll
have a mic inside ;)
Car: 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STi
Mods: only engine Stage 2 intake/Exhaust/ecu
Tires: 235/45/17 Bridgestone RE-11
This ridealong was with my friend so I had about 200+ pounds of extra
weight onboard. Nevertheless, the session was pretty good but after lap 6/7
my brake fluid boiled...time for some Motul 600...

straight and 139 mph through turn 1 at BIR. Fastest straight/turn combo on
any road course in the country. The straight doubles as the 1/4 mile drag
strip where the NHRA Lucas Oil Nationals takes place every August.
