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.
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......

Instructors ride in the right seat - passing only allowed on the back
straight - speed controlled by the rev limiter. Team Texas runs a fun,
safe, thrilling program. www.TeamTexas.com
TMS: 1.5-mile asphalt tri-oval, 24 degree banking in the turns, 5 degrees
in the straights.
Last lap was 41.4 seconds for avg speed of 130.4 MPH. Brian Vickers holds
the current qualifying record at TMS (2006): 27.5 seconds for an avg speed
of 196 MPH.
What a hoot! Wanted to go faster!
Sorry for the quality of the video. The cars had worn analog VHS deck
recorders, which they transferred to DVD at a low resolution capture, which
was then uploaded to YT.
A higher resolution version is posted on my channel at www.Stage6.com -
search the tags for "SYTube5". You will need to download the free DivX
player and a high-speed broadband connection (or a lot of patience) helps -
but the quality is better. Enjoy!
