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.
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. :)

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.
