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 - 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.
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 - 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. :)
Corvette races Porsche at Miller Motorsports Park
SMS C5 Corvette battles GT3RS Porsche during MPRA race #11, Miller
Motorsports Park. Though not in the same race class as the Porsche, the
Corvette battles to stay with the Porsche on the outer-loop at MMP. Good
racing action from inside the Corvette.
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. :)
Opening laps at Miller Motorsports Park on the full track. NASA round 4,
Super Unlimited action between the SMS Corvette, Miller Racing C4 Corvette
and the Pro racing ALMS GTC Porsche of Madison Snow. Good action from the
cockpit of the Miller Racing Corvette.
Corvette at MMP SCCA Regional
Les Long's Porsche GT3R charges through the field at the Rocky Mountain
SCCA Regional to challenge the pole sitting SMS C5 Corvette. Even though
the Porsche is on race tires and the Corvette is on DOT tires, the Vette
hangs on for the win.
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
