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.

NASA 2013 Super Touring and Super Unlimited Championship racing action filmed at Miller Motorsports Park. The SMS Racing Corvette advances from 24th position to 1st in Super Touring and 3rd overall.
NASA Regional Final
The final NASA points race of the season was a great race with the Audi R8 of Team TW Racing and the SMS/JDP Corvette. The R8 is a very sophisticated machine with sequential gear box, paddle shifters, awesome computer controlled anti-lock ABS brakes and factory carbon aero package! Yet the Corvette leads for most of the race and finally gets passed under yellow! A hard fought win for the SMS team and 2014 NASA Regional Super Unlimited Championship!

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.
