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.

Spec Racer Ford GEN3 @ Texas World Speedway May 24, 2014
In this cheesy narrated video, I talk about driving the first privately built GEN3 SRF conversion. G30006 is the motor serial number. This is also a new car to me (chassis #868) and I've never even sat in it until this race. We never checked the suspension, camber/toe/caster, alignment, sway bars or any other settings because we needed all the time just to get the motor running. So, the first time I drove the car was in a race and I started in the back in P32. I completed the race in P11. I raced again on Sunday and we had a chance to tune the suspension. I started P29 and finished P3. The car was much better and I learned my shift points from the Saturday race.

SCCA Majors Sunday Race - High Plains Raceway - May 4, 2014
Started out P5, lost it in turn 1 and went to P6, gained it back a time or two and finally kept P5 to the end. The first half of the race is somewhat fun but got boring the last half when Jim spun out. Fighting it out with Jim slowed us down so I had no chance to catch the 4th place guy and decided to just slow it down and save my tires for Texas World Speedway in 2 weeks. Fun first half of the race though. :)

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. :)

NARRA USGT Race #1 @ Road Atlanta
This is my in-car video of the full race (well, full race for me) at Road Atlanta during the NARRA USGT Race #1. I blew a rod bearing in the 10th lap and watched from the side of the track in turn 5 for the duration of the race. I was terrified of Road Atlanta at first. But, by this race, I was getting more comfortable with it. Too bad I didn't get to race on Sunday. I really need to bring an extra motor with me just in case.





NARRA race
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 first)

1:49.38 lap in 2009 Nissan GT-R at Texas World Speedway 2.9 CCW March 14, 2013
This is during the "qualfying" rounds that some of us took part in during the TX2K13 DE at Texas World Speedway. This was my fastest lap ever at TWS. Mods include: Alcon Super Kit brakes with Pagid RS29 pads (Alcon's support sucks btw) JRZ RS Pro Silent with 1000lb/530lb springs Stillen sway bars HKS resonated mid pipe Finspeed 18x10.25 custom rims with Michelin 27/68-18 Cup N1 slicks There is no engine tune...yet...so stock power. Data was captured using a rooted LG G2X with CM7 ROM with a QStarz 818XT external GPS. Video overlay is from a trial version of RaceRender...duh. Video was captured from a GoPro Hero3 Black mounted in my windshield - Sorry I mounted it last minute... The oldest human ever on record was Jeanne Calment from France who was born in February 21, 1875 and died August 4 1997, living for an astonishing 122 years, 164 days... :)





IndyCar Grand Prix of Houston - Spec Racer Ford Race 1 - June 28, 2014
This is the full race from start to finish of Race 1. Lots of carnage and our race was ended after only 19 minutes of a 30 minute race due to so many cars disabled on track. In lap 10 we have a pretty major crash in which I'm involved. I get hit from behind by #8 and I spin. #8 continues forward and takes #81 out of the race entirely.





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 the bank
