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.
Texas World Speedway (TWS) - 2.9mi CCW
The video starts with my best lap from the weekend, then continues (@
03:00) with various highlights, antics, and pictures from the event.
In 2014 I am trying to knock the dust off my driving skills after only
having the Lotus at the track 3 times in 2013, and one time in 2014 before
this trip. It really makes a difference if you don't practice often!
We have had a camera in the car at most of the driving events we have
attended. Every year or so I create highlight videos of all the events on
BlueRay for myself and my friends. However, since this might have been my
last opportunity to take the 4 hour drive down from Dallas to attend an
event at Texas World Speedway (TWS) I am posting this video to YouTube due
to its nostalgic content.
It was announced early in 2014 that TWS will be re-developed into a
neighborhood. At the time of this writing it is uncertain if we will get
to drive at TWS in 2015. Do yourself a favor and search the Internet for
historical TWS information. You will soon realize why it is tragic that we
are losing this historic track.

Texas World Speedway - The Oval
Texas World Speedway was a NASCAR oval track, but is no longer used for
that. Unfortunately there was an metal to metal accident during our
session. We got to drive on the oval to drive around the accident and get
back to the paddock.
The condition is not so hot. It is also unnerving to drive the bank at such
slow speeds. As you can hear I was properly nervous while heading around
This video is from the Viper Racing League Invitational Race at Miller
Motorsports Park. What makes it interesting is the Whelen Engineering
Rolex GT car piloted by Eric Curran as well as 3 other Whelen Rolex and
World Challenge cars were entered. Eric's car had a mechanical DNF on
Saturdays race but he lit up the track on Sunday. However, the SMS
Corvette won the Saturday race and was 1st in qualifying so all that was
needed on Sunday was to finish ahead of the Vipers to get the overall win.
This video is from the start with a reverse order grid. (slowest cars
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. :)
Jason Hart: 09/14 McLaren P1 TWS Delivery Texas World Speedway
A friend of mine decided to take delivery of his McLaren P1 at the track
and I must say I could not agree with him more. He ordered the car with the
5 point harnesses as he plans on using this P1 for what it was engineered
for, on track bliss!!! On the video is my first drive followed by 2 laps
done after the first lap. This car lives up to all the hype it now becomes
my favorite street car I have ever driven, previously it was the Porsche
Carrera GT...and I have driven many super cars over the years...Veyron included. I hope you enjoy
the video and there will be additional videos coming with all sorts of
camera angles. J
