3 laps at Texas Motor Speedway
A long time ago, my WONDERFUL wife bought me a 10-lap package with Team
Texas, where you get to drive a real NASCAR racecar around the same track
the real NASCAR drivers race on.
I've had the video of it for awhile, but it's about 150 MB... I finally
figured out how to cut out a portion of the file and made a clip of just
the three laps that were the most representative of the experience:
This was quite possibly the most fun I've ever had with my clothes on......
Spin after instuctor grabs my wheel
This video is from the Yellow group. So I am not a rookie. This was the
first event at this track and everyone had an instructor to show us the
layout. This in the first 10 laps on this track and I just forgot what was
coming and turned in late. I am not saying that the instuctor "caused the
spin". My car was out of shape, because I turned in late at turn 5 (now
renamed turn 4)at eagle's Canyon Raceway. But Its not the first time that
I have lost grip for one reason or another and have recovered from
situations far worse. So I am saying that he made it worse. The
instructor just seems to have panicked and made an error. Instructors are
"Team Texas" - NASCAR Fantasy Driving School
Here is a collection of clips from a day at "TEAM TEXAS" Driving School.

A relative of mine participated, and I went along to document the day.
Jace Driving a NASCAR Stock Car at TMS - 7/17/2010
As a birthday present, I was given the opportunity to solo-drive a NASCAR
stock car at Texas Motor Speedway. On July 17, 2010, after waiting in the
102* weather for 3 hours, I climbed I the car for an 8 minute drive around
the track. There were as many as 3 cars on the track at one time. The
cars are equipped with governors that were supposedly set at 150mph (boo).
The drivers are in constant communication with a spotter. In my 8 minute
session, I was able to pass two other cars. My official fastest lap was
152.03mph. It was an unreal experience!
p.s., I got stuck in Kyle Busch's car. At the end of the video you can
here me say, "When he told me I was in the 18 I said, 'CRAP!'" Also, the
cars I passed on the track were the 24 and the 99.
