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.

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. :)

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
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
Jason Hart: McLaren P1 New Texas World Speedway Track Record 1:45.837
This is a New Track Record at TWS for an OEM street tire, street legal,
showroom stock vehicle. Joey Todd who handles the record keeping was on
hand and verified the event, Thanks Joey. I must admit the Trofeo R's do
very well, but the pressure the P1 puts on them makes for a tidy lap or you
risk putting too much heat in them resulting in loss of lap time. The P1
hit a sustained peak G of 1.79 in Turn 7!!! Most impressive for a 245 front
tire even with the uphill compression of the car. I am beyond impressed
with the aero, drive train and overall engineering of this car. The point
which gets the most respect ahead of all others is the owners desire to
track this car with commitment...it is a great opportunity to be chosen and
trusted with such resources and for that I am also Thankful beyond words. I
hope you enjoy the video if you watch it...J
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.
