The 2005 NASA Texas American Iron and Camaro-Mustang Challenge season opener is March 5-6, 2005 - just one short week away!

 

Round 1 is being held at Motorsport Ranch, located in Cresson, Texas ( just south of Fort Worth ).

 

The 2004 series champs ( John George - AI, and Eric Varner - CMC ) are returning to defend their respective crowns.

 

Don't miss the first race of the season. For the rest of the NASA Texas schedule, check out http://www.nasatx.com.

HPDE is $200. Best deal going for track time. March 5th is fast approaching. Will you be there?

Team Covini/Breitenbach will be there!!!

 

Neil Breitenbach from Tampa, Florida will be dusting off his old Motorola Cup and Grand Am Cup driving shoes to assist with some CMC butt kicking this year.

 

After a 2 year hiatus from racing, Neil will take the wheel of the Mobil 1 Mustang on an unfamiliar track next weekend. Testing and cobweb shaking on Friday and racing on Saturday.

 

I'll get back into the car on Sunday after a loooonnnngg winter off.

Can't wait to see everyone again!

Great weekend, lots of help amongst competitors in the pits.

 

I got lucky and put together one fast lap apparently, wish I knew how I did it. Now I need to learn how to race, lol.

Here a pic for Mike Patterson

Thanks for help on my line in my VW GTI Golf #197

So what did you think of my first time setup out the box run???

I know it needs more. All ready working on it.

Need more Track time also.

Had fun door to door with White Carmo 97 for 3 or 4 laps.

Glad you had fun out there David. Thanks for posting the pics. A little time and a bit of tweaking to the GTI and I'm sure you'll cut many seconds off your lap times. Great runs for the first time out of the box, considering it was a street car 3 weeks ago. I'm sure the Honda Challenge guys have some setup advice to maximize the handling of a FWD car. Look forward to having you out at the next event and running on the track with you.

Hey! Leave my team mate alone! You're just jealous 'cause he took a win on the same day you got a pole position!

Hey David, cool pic! Thanks for sharing. I didn't know the #16 could lift one up in the air like Mike P's LS1 does on EVERY corner exit, lol.

 

BTW, name is Mike Bell, hope to meet you next time out. It's a ton of fun, huh?

Hey Adam. Thanks again for the 'G-Money' jewelry. I figured you'd try another one of those 'shortcuts', so I thought I had plenty of room to get around you going into Rattlesnake.

At this time, probably not. Why - you guys thinking of coming to TX for a race?

It seemed to fit you well. As for my shortcut...hell, I was following Jay's line.

 

PS- You wanna go mono-e-mono...director-e-director??

 

Sure. How about Hallett? Standing start, 4 lap race. Kapeesh?
