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)
Viper Racing League - Inverted 1-hour race - MSR Cresson - Rogue ACR-X
This is part of a 1-hour Viper Racing League inverted race. The inverted
race is where the faster
qualifying cars start toward the back and the slower qualifying cars start
toward the front. Since I have only 10 minutes for a youtube video, there's
simply no way to show the whole race. So, I have a few snippets here only
but you'll get the idea. :)
Laguna Seca SCCA Regional
After 10 years away, SMS Racing returns to Laguna Seca Raceway. Slick
track conditions and cold DOT tires make the first few laps pretty dicey,
but the SMS C5 Corvette still presses for the lead..........
2013 NASA Pro Racing National Championships
On board the SMS/JDP Motorsports C5 Corvette during the start of the 2013
NASA Pro Racing National Championships. Due to a bogus "passing under
yellow" penalty (later proven by video to be incorrect) the SMS/JDP
Corvette climbs through the field from 20th to 3rd overall and first in
class to take the NASA 2013 Super Touring national championship.
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.
Viper Racing League - 8/29/09 - Texas World Speedway
This is my first race with the Viper Racing League (Viper Days/NARRA) at
Texas World Speedway on Saturday 8/29/09. We have a rolling start with a
pace car and ran 12 laps for about 30 minutes. I edited this video from the
30 minute race down to 10 minutes so it would fit within the YouTube! time
limit. We also had a 26 lap inverted race on Sunday for about 50 minutes
but my camera messed up and I only got the first lap and it shut off.
Anyway, I came in 3rd place in both races behind the World Challenge
competition coupes which are much faster and have better drivers. I was
extremely happy to come in 3rd. In this race, I started out in the 3rd row
inside and managed to get behind Tom in his white/blue comp coupe. I chased
him most of the race just waiting for a mistake. He began losing his tires
and I managed to stick my nose in on turn 13. He was gracious and let me by
but could have easily kept me from passing. We were pretty even the whole
race and it was tons of fun. Thanks, Tom! The next race is Roebling Road in
Georgia and then off to Daytona on the Rolex Series course.
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. :)
Daytona International Speedway - Saturday Race 1 Part 1 - NARRA/Viper Days/PBOC event
This is the first race on Saturday. This is the first 10 minutes which
includes the starting grid, rolling start, and the first few laps. BTW,
sorry for the angle of the camera on the driver. I didn't have the top of
the camera set properly. :)
My car was getting a new radiator during my qualifying session and since I
didn't qualify, they put me at the back of the pack. There were 4 or 5 cars
behind me at first and then my car went into "limp" mode and I had to turn
off/on the key a few times to get it out of limp mode. This put me dead
last! I was 59th of 59 cars in this race. I managed to get to position 23
after passing 36 cars in 30 minutes.
NASA Race on Miller East Loop
Early Season NASA action of the SMS Racing Corvette at Miller Motorsports
Park. A tough day with mistakes at the beginning and mid-race that end the
day on lap 8 but some good racing action in between.
ALMS AIR POWER GT RACE
On board video of the Air Power GT race from inside the SMS C5 Corvette.
After qualifying 3rd behind the Pfadt Racing C6 Corvette and the ALMS GT2
Porsche of Loren Beggs, the SMS Corvette powers into the lead.........
Corvette vs RSR Porsche at MMP
The SMS Corvette starts from the pole, beside the Air Power GT3 Porsche
RSR. The Porsche has more grip in the corners but the Vette has more grunt
on the straights resulting in to "nose to tail" action for 25 minutes with
the Vette trying to hold off the hungry Porsche.
