CONGRATS!
Not a teammate but you can't imagine how great the guys are that I race with. Like hdgoldie said. If someone has an issue with their car the other guys will help you get back on track, even if it takes half the night. They will loan you parts and even help you set-up the car. Michael is a great guy that was really very happy that I won. We don't race for money. We do get Toyo Bucks (tire money form Toyo) the spec tire.

Congrats. sounds like real fun. I know the contours of that interior. I used to autocross my 88 Mustang GT. I did the same in my 75 Trans AM. I only did local races.
It was still the definition of having too much fun.
I wish they had a series like that for larger cars Like 90 Crown vics, Caprices and New Chargers. That one could be fun as well.
I'm more into off roading now.

I just got a chance to watch the whole video! AWESOME! I bet after your friend got clear of the field with you that the last lap was a VERY LONG lap for you! LOL

I gather that kind of racing rewards good racing tactics/techniques. I'm not a big race fan but I like that concept. I would think it puts citizens races (bicycle term for amateur level) within the reach of many enthusiasts.

Don,

The race was thirty minutes long. The video was only five minutes. Michael got through the traffic on the third lap, then he skipped the video to the last lap. I had to hold him off for seven laps! I have been in this position several times in the last two years and I usually overdrive and screw up and they catch me. This time I did not look in my mirror except on the front straight. The rest of the time I kept my head down and tried to drive within myself.

You are right about this kind of racing. The is as grassroots road racing as you will find. Everyone has to have the same power, weight, tires and brakes. If you win you win because you outdrove the others. You can't win by throwing money at this level of racing. We only race six weekends per year and it cost me about a grand per weekend. That includes entry fees, fuel for the car and the RV, tires and wear and tear on the car. A really good used car will cost around $6000.00 to 10,000.00 and a new one will cost $12,000.00 to $15,000.00 to build. Most all of us do our own work on our cars to help keep cost down. I wanted to race all my adult life but life got in the way. At 50 I said I know I'm getting old but I want to see if I am as good as I think I am. My first race I was six seconds per lap slower than the slowest guy! This was very humbling. Six races later at the first race of the next year I was in the mid pack. My son and I split time in the car (we both run two races per weekend) and this has hurt us since seat time is everything in racing.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words. They mean a lot to me.

Jerry, congratulations!!! Your video brought back lots of fun memories of weekends spent at TWS. As someone said earlier, RVers are just as welcoming and helpful as the folks at the track, and its a great crowd to associate with. The win is icing on the cake!

Congratulations on your win. I think this is the perfect place to share the news with friends. You will be wearing that big grin for a few days! I took the Bondurant racing school course last year so I could learn how to REALLY drive and handle my Corvette Grand Sport, it was an AMAZING course (a couple of pics of the cars you get to drive attached). I can see how one can easily get hooked on the rush of racing.
