    Video from NASA at Watkins Glen (10-26 and 10-27)

    "Double Down" Weekend
    at Watkins Glen International



    Alan brought home two 2nd place trophies for Saturday and Sunday's races in the TTU division.

    As always, NASA Northeast had a great turnout for this event, and the competition was definitely fierce.

    The Patriot Missile's best time was 2:07.8, beating its own 2012 season track time by a full 5 seconds!

    A huge thanks to all those who support CTS-V Racing!

    Seems like Alan needs to invest in a better mic! Good stuff, though, and congrats on the strong finishes.

    I've only been the Glen once, way back in '01. I think it was my 4th or 5th ever track event. My rocketship 165hp Subaru managed to run in the low 2:40s. I was hoping to get up there this year with a buddy of mine, but the logistics didn't work out. Maybe early in '14.

    So how does the finishing order work? Did some of your fellow competitors lose their places based on dyno or weight results? From looking at the results on NASA-NE's website, it doesn't appear you had the 2nd fastest TTU times.

    I know at the NASA Nationals, Vorshlag Motorsports ended up getting 3rd in their Mustang because the original 3rd place finisher went over on the dyno, so their times were wiped.

    Actually we messed up we looked at the results from one of the sessions. Some guys race and do TT I do not think its fair but its allowed. You can do 1 session for the day and get the best time while the rest of the us go out all day. I think some guys jump in to get the win just to get the contingency tires. But at the end of the day it all about getting out on track with a group of good drivers stayin safe and trying to get the best possible time.

    I know some of the Corvette guys were crying being passed by a Caddy. If your running 18"'s, your probably into 5th on the back straight very early, and right back into 4th for the down hill.
