Frank Barba and the reptile racing Viper just showed up to BeaveRun Motorsports Complex to challenge Bruce Graham in the Mansier Motorsports Corvette for the VVC1 title. Should be a great match up! Come by and take a look August 30-31.

 

Also, Earl Beam brought his new VVCX car (soon to be dynoed at VVC1) to run Sunday. This could be the beginning of a beautiful thing!

Frank was driving the green 1995 Viper, and Bruce Graham the 1978 Corvette. Earl Beam in a C5. Bruce and Earl took the checker on Saturday, with Bruce in front. Sunday Frank and Bruce were bringing their qualifying times way down. Frank was down to a 1:05 and Bruce in the 1:06's. This was Bruce's first weekend in the car, and his laps went:

1:08.1

1:07.4

1:06.5

Then Bruce hit the wall on the inside of Turn 8, and did some real damage to the corvette. No doubt he was on his way to a 1:05 time. Frank started the race, and held off the American Iron polesitter for about 5 laps. After this, he cooled it realizing he did not have to run so hard to take home the crown. Congratulations to both Frank and Bruce for their wins!

What a great event. Thanks Lawrence. Looking forward to a few more of these VVC races with NASA. I am thinking of driving the Green Meanie in the Endurace at Beaver in a few weeks. What do you think? Can i get someone to sponsor some tires? Brake Pads, and a set of Rotors?
