1968 Corvette L-88 #12 Owens/Corning FIA/SCCA Racecar Sold To Rick Hendrick At Barrett-Jackson
Congratulations to Mr. Rick Hendrick for winning a phenominal piece of Corvette history tonight at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona. Mr. Hendrick also went on to win Vin #0001 of the new 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray. Details and info about the '68 L-88 Owens/Corning #12 Corvette Racecar: (Copied from RM Auctions) Est. 685 bhp at 6,600 rpm, 427 CID L-88 big block Chevrolet racing engine, Muncie M-22 "Rockcrusher" transmission, front and rear independent suspension, coil springs to the front, and transverse leaf to the rear with Koni adjustable shock absorbers. Wheelbase: 98" • Generally considered the most victorious racing Corvette in history • Ex-Tony DeLorenzo and Jerry Thompson • Multiple SCCA championships; NCRS American Heritage Award • Fresh Kevin MacKay restoration • Extensive documentation America's Star-Spangled Sports Car For nearly four decades, the Chevrolet Corvette was the only sports car designed and built in North America. Capable of taking on and beating the world's best production sports and GT cars on the international circuit, Corvettes roared on the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans, flew on the high banks at Daytona, and blazed their lights around Sebring. On amateur SCCA circuits, Corvettes won fourteen "A Production" and fifteen "B Production" divisional titles in the 1962 to 1976 period. SCCA Nationals saw Corvettes capturing no less than 25 Run-Off Championships in A, B, and C Production in the same time frame. A Russian born ex-race driver and engineer hired by GM's Ed Cole gets the credit for the almost unbelievable transformation that took place from 1954 to 1957. The '53 Corvette was thoroughly underpowered, but the 1957 V-8 version won its class at Sebring, as well as the Sports Car Club of America "B" Production National Championship. In fact, in 1960, a Cunningham Corvette placed First in GT at Le Mans! "Corvette -- The Real McCoy" trumpeted the full page ads in the national media and that really said it best. The classic, solid axle Corvette gave way to the beautiful Sting Ray coupes and convertibles with independent suspension in 1963, and four-wheel disc brakes became standard in 1965. In 1968, it emerged as the dramatic Stingray (one word) with a "Coke bottle" shape, inspired by the '67 Mako Shark Show Car. Corvette Big Block Bruisers: "The Fast and the Few" Only a few Corvettes can legitimately claim membership in this exclusive club. John Greenwood's "Stars & Stripes" L-88 cars of the 1968--1973 period, backed by BFG and often racing on that company's new radial tires, certainly qualify for this short list. Dave Heinz's two Corvettes, liveried as "Rebel Flag" cars in a competitive response to the BFG effort and driven by Heinz and Bob Johnson, often beat the Greenwood team due to better race strategy and superior reliability. However, the very best racing results were scored by the two Tony DeLorenzo/Jerry Thompson Corvette team cars, which contested both the SCCA Divisional and National circuit, as well as all of the important U.S.A.-based FIA distance races. One of these, 002/68, their 1968 Owens/Corning Fiberglas L-88 car, is the very same that we are privileged to present here. Impressive period results include the 1969 and 1972 SCCA National "A" Production Championships, 1968 and 1970 SCCA National "A" Production Runner-Up, Second Place in GT at the 1969 12 Hours of Sebring, and the 1969 and 1970 GT Class wins in the 24 Hours of Daytona. In the 1970 event, it finished Sixth Overall, behind two Porsche 917s, a Ferrari 512, and two Ferrari 312s, but ahead of a Ferrari 250 LM in Seventh and a Ford GT40 in Eighth. This car, together with its team car, won 22 of 22 SCCA/FIA National Events during 1969--1971, with this car winning 11 of these! Observers will note that these two team cars changed numbers for each race entered, in order to give the perception of a large team effort. This car was always the highest numbered car and driven most often by Jerry Thompson.

Bizarre NASCAR Finish~ Road America 6.25.11
Reed Sorenson claimed his first Nationwide Series win in nearly four years after prevailing in a very confusing finish in Saturday's Bucyrus 200 at Road America. The race featured three green-white-checkered attempts for several wrecks in the closing laps. Sorenson's Turner Motorsports teammate, Justin Allgaier, held the lead on the final lap, but after the caution flag waved for an incident involving Aric Almirola, Allgaier ran out of fuel and stalled on the lengthy 4.048-mile road course. Ron Fellows then passed Sorenson, and it appeared at first that Fellows took the lead. But NASCAR reviewed the finish until several minutes after the conclusion of the race. NASCAR determined Fellows moved ahead of Sorenson when the yellow flag was in sight, and therefore, awarded the victory to Sorenson. It was Sorenson's fourth career win in the series but his first since July 2007 at Gateway International Raceway. "I knew it was going to be close on gas for all of us, and I was just able to make it at the end," Sorenson said. "We had a good car all day, but not a winning car, but good enough to make it at the end." Michael McDowell dominated most of the race and led in the closing laps before an accident involving newcomer Doug Harrington forced the first two-lap overtime attempt. After the first of the three green-white-checkered restarts, Jacques Villeneuve, driving the No.22 Dodge in place of Brad Keselowski, dove to the inside of the track and made contact with Brian Scott. Villeneuve then bumped into Max Papis and sent Papis into the gravel before he hit the barrier hard. During the second g-w-c attempt, Allgaier chased down McDowell for the lead. McDowell overshot one of the corners, allowing Allgaier to slip by and take the lead for the first time in the race. After McDowell ran off course, a three-car wreck involving Steve Wallace, Eric McClure and Alex Kennedy set up the third and final overtime finish. "I thought we had won it," said Allgaier, who ended up finishing 19th. "When the caution came out, I was pretty sure we had won it, but we ran out of fuel." Fellows finished second in this race for the second year in a row. Villeneuve bounced back from a penalty midway through the race to finish third. NASCAR penalized Villeneuve after he changed his lane prior to a restart. He was running second to McDowell at the time. When the race ended, Papis pulled up next to Villeneuve on pit road to express his displeasure. Papis finished two laps down in 23rd.

Hendrick Motorsports Museum - {HD}
We got to visit Hendrick Motorsports Museum & Store while we were in Charlotte North Carolina for NASCAR race week in October 2010. HD video taken with my Canon 7D camera. It was a great place to see the history of Hendrick Motorsports, and shop for cool stuff! Hendrick Motorsports is currently (as of the time of the video) home to NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers #48 Jimmie Johnson, # 24 Jeff Gordon, #5 Mark Martin, and #88 Dale Earnhardt Jr. There were many other things to see, but it was near closing time, so I was trying to hurry and just shot the cars and wasn't the best camera work. Hope you enjoy this look at the museum anyway.

Kurt Busch: Rageaholic
A documentary featuring all of Kurt Busch's on or off track/radio incidents (that I could find). Credits are at the end. Check the rest of the description for more info/notes. Pacmancucumber1783 made one for Kyle http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiG3COT2bVg&feature=g-all-u Notes: Obviously this was uploaded after the 2011 season before the start of the 2012 season, so things change over time. But as most of you know, Kurt has continued to have meltdowns even after the firing from Penske. So please dont ask me "Why didnt you put his latest meltdown in here" when a simple glance at the upload date would answer the question. People ask me all the time if I could make one for Kyle or Kevin Harvick. Sorry guys but the answer to that is no. This was way too time consuming, and I will probably never do a documentary again. And if I do I wont announce it months in advance like this time, cause trust me there were several times I wanted to scrap this thing but couldnt since I promised everyone. But in the end, I have zero regrets about making this, and only one about the way it turned out. Youll find that out below. People also ask me why I hate Kurt. I dont. I would like nothing more than to see him fix his personal demons and be a winner again. Im not a fan, but Im not a hater. I made this documentary because I enjoy making videos. I didnt throw personal opinion into this thing. I let the video speak for itself. I got both sides of the story via interviews, sometimes one of the two drivers didnt give an interview. Dont blame me for it. Also, to the trolls out there: I dont drive the damn cars, I dont give the damn interviews, if you dont like it, get off me. The only thing I regret about this thing is the title. I picked the name Rageaholic because it was the last minute and I couldnt think of anything else. I have always hated the name since. If I could change it, I would. But I can't, so I wont even say what I would call it now. I get beat up a lot in the comments from people who say "Where the hell is all the rage he only raged at the end of the video" or stuff like that. All I can say is, deal with it. I know this whole thing is kinda cheezy, but its the best I could do given the fact that I have no budget and use Windows Live Movie Maker. Thankfully people have been real kind in the comments. I would like to thank everyone for all the kind words about this thing and how much they enjoyed watching it. The positive responses have far exceeded the negative. Even Kurt fans have told me they liked my work on this one. I really have great respect for those Kurt fans out there who didnt just assume I was a hater. For all those who have posted kind words, thank you. Means a lot when you put a lot of work into something and people like it. Thanks everyone.
