NJMP Podium 2015   
Mopar - Dodge Grand Prix of New Jersey Recap

  The drivers of the North American Road Racing Association (NARRA), USGT and Whelen USTT series, competed in the penultimate event of www.bldc.net the 2015 season at New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) August 29th and 30th. New track records for NJMP’s Thunder Circuit were set and the results also mean that some of the class championships are now secured.

 

USGT driver, Michael Hartley of RH Motorsports, hosted a Friday evening dinner with all of the drivers and crew in attendance. Hartley considers NJMP his home track and wanted to celebrate the occasion with all of his friends from the online pharmacy propecia renova NARRA series. A great time was had by all as storytelling and bench racing conversations filled the room.

 

The GT Unlimited class proved to be a battle between the top three drivers in the championship point race. Mike Hartley (RH Motorsports, Dodge Viper) entered the weekend with the generix cialis lead over Tom Antonelli (All Chicago Fleet, Dodge Viper) and Jim Stout (Coastal Pet Motorsports, Dodge Viper). Hartley, who is a New Jersey native, had the advantage of the most experience on the pavement at NJMP.  Hartley started from the pole for Saturday’s race and never relinquished the canadian pharmacy viagra position as he went from flag-to-flag for the victory. Stout did not make it easy for Hartley, hounding him for the duration of the race. At the end only a few car lengths separated the pair. Despite a tremendous effort Antonelli could not quite match the pace of his competitors and found himself in third position.  David Brandt had qualified earlier in the day, but overheating issues would keep him out of lowest price on non generic levitra both the Saturday and viagra online no prescription Sunday races.

 

GT1 also had an important weekend as class leader Russ Oasis (VERT, PartsRack, Dodge Viper) went head to levitra order prescription head against Kurt Sollberger (Swiss-Micron, Dodge Viper). Sollberger qualified better than Oasis earning an important bonus point. In the Saturday race, the duo was seemingly connected by a string as they were nose-to-tail throughout much of the 30 minute race. An early caution flag made for an exciting restart, but Oasis wisely left Sollberger racing room going into turn one. The yellow flag was shown when David Greenman (Parabellum Racing, Chevrolet Corvette). Greenman suffered a suspension component failure and was unable to continue. Unfortunately this also caused Greenman to sit out the Sunday race as well.

 

In GT3, rookie driver Nicholas Coutu (Porsche Cayman) made his first official NARRA USGT start. Coutu qualified in sixth position overall and maintained that position for the duration of the race. Despite being out-gunned by the high horsepower GTU cars, Coutu drove a very good race and stayed on the lead lap. This was a license-test race for Coutu and his points would not count towards the http://bmecancer.com/bruising-on-cialis championship.

 

Due to a number of cars withdrawing for Sunday’s race, the remaining drivers elected to have a reverse-grid start. A reverse grid start puts the slowest qualifier on the pole and the fastest qualifier in the last position. The net result of all the changes meant that Coutu would be on the pole in front of the highest powered cars in the USGT.  Antonelli, on the left side of Coutu at the start, offered to help the young driver manage the pace as the field bunched up for the start. When the buy viagra online green flag was waved, the three GTU cars of Stout, Hartley, and Antonelli, roared past Coutu and passed him before the first turn. Coutu did a very good job of viagra soft tabs 100 mg maintaining his line and his composure.

 

The race went the full distance under green flag conditions as Hartley and Stout raced off into the distance ahead of Antonelli and buy viagra online at Coutu. The power advantage of Hartley allowed him to beat Stout down the straights, but Stout was fast in the corners. At the checkered flag the pair was once again only separated by a few tenths of a second. Antonelli ran clean, but could not find the speed to cheapest prices on generic viagra stay within striking distance of the first and second place GTU cars. With the win, Hartley completed a weekend sweep and extended his lead in GTU.

 

In the Whelen US Time Trial sessions on Saturday, drivers from three classes turned up to score important points towards the championship. The early story became the decision from Phil Grabow (Element Tuning, Subaru WRX STI) to transition from TT2 to the TTU class. Kevin Parlett (BC Racing / Z1 Motorsports, Infiniti G35) suddenly found himself in a battle with one of the best Subaru tuners in the business. Grabow had some early morning issues with a bent splitter as a result of contact with a tire wall. His team worked quickly and had the car back on track for the afternoon sessions. In the final session of the day, Grabow would find his fastest lap with a 1:26.214. Parlett, seemingly down on power, could not mount a challenge and could only post a 1:33.399.

 

George Lankas (Sonny Slope Farms, Dodge Viper) was uncontested in TT1, but that did not stop him from putting in a fantastic drive, registering a 1.27.625 in the first session. Lankas knows the corners of NJMP very well, but he still elected to take almost every minute of where to buy cheap clomid online lap time available to him.

 

TT3 was a three way contest between Walter Bobko (Bobko Financial, Form Mustang), Tom Steffey (Subaru WRX STI), and David Coutu (Porsche Cayman). Coutu was campaigning the same car as his son Nicholas was in the USGT races. The car ran strong all weekend without issue despite the high volume of track time. Bobko, the TT3 championship leader installed a new rear spoiler prior to the event and was making adjustments throughout the day. He would go on to set a 1:33.958 and finish third. Steffey obliterated his front bumper and splitter when he went four-wheels-off early in the day. His crew, with help from the guys of Element Tuning, put the what is levitra car back on track. In the final session, Steffey took the second step of the podium with a 1:33.048. Coutu managed to eclipse Steffey by driving to a 1:32.691.

 

The Sunday sessions proved to be faster for almost every driver in the competition. Grabow made a few more aero adjustments to http://e-dashi.com/wp/viagra-generic-australia his car and viagra online online the engine cooling elements that resulted in his netting a 1:25.109. Parlett, sensed something more serious was wrong with his car than he previously believed and he retired after setting a 1:31.297 in session one.

 

Steffey really turned up the heat on the TT3 class competition and recorded a 1:28.778 in session three which put him in first place followed by Coutu in second with a 1:31.264. Bobko, still trying to find the best set-up with his recent changes, finished third with a 1:35.149. Bobko still leads the TT3 championship as the Whelen USTT heads into the final event of the season.

 

The final event of the NARRA 2015 season will be held at Pittsburgh International Race Complex on October 17th. With round 13 being the final point scoring opportunity of the season, it is extremely important for the classes with tight championship battles because it is worth double the points of a traditional round.

Mopar - Dodge Grand Prix of New Jersey Preview

 

The North American Road Racing Association (NARRA) returns to the Thunderbolt circuit of New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) August 28th-30th. The weekend marks round number 11 and 12 of the 13 round season, as the National Championship picture is starting to come into focus. Dodge can certainly claim the highest amount of buying viagra horsepower to the ground as the entry list starts to build.

 

The GTU class of the USGT Championship shows the generic levitra vardenafil #53 RH Motorsports, Dodge Viper of Mike Hartley in the lead by only six points. Hartley took the lead position from the #415 All Chicago Fleet, Dodge Viper of Tom Antonelli via the results of back-to-back wins at Pitt Race a few weeks ago. Jim Stout and the #1 Coastal Pet Motorsports, Dodge Viper is holding onto third place overall, but is in position to shake up the top three with a good result at NJMP. Don’t count out Ray Sweers and his #44 Positron, Dodge Viper. While Sweers is out of the championship title contention, he could score well enough to move up the ladder. The key element to this weekend could be that NJMP is Hartley’s home track. He knows its corners and secrets better than anyone on the grid.

 

 

GT1 is now locked up by the #98 V.E.R.T. Fitness – PartsRack, Dodge Viper of Russ Oasis. His closest competition, #49 Dodge Viper of Dave Moore, ran into problems at the Pitt Race event and will not be able to put the car on the track at NJMP. The two drivers with the most to gain this weekend will be Scott Welham in the #61 McCann Racing, Dodge Viper and the #48 Swiss-Micron, Dodge Viper of Kurt Sollberger. Only one point separates the pair, and with Moore’s absence, they could catapult themselves into the top three before heading into finals in October. Oasis also currently leads the Viper Racing League championship, but that one is far from over. Four other Viper racers are within striking distance of taking the title home.

 

 

A similar story has played out in the GT2 competition. Victor Caldarelli Jr. has locked up the national title in his #93 Lintz Collision, Dodge Viper. Caldarelli, in his first full season of GT racing, has racked up six class wins and we like it enough points that he does not need to turn a wheel at NJMP.

 

 

The GT3 national title will be going to Zach Davis in the #28 SimGear.com, Corvette. Davis had a tight battle going with the #61 Lotus of John Walczak until the June event at VIR. Walczak had a single car incident early in the weekend that sidelined him for the season. NARRA - Whelen USTT driver, Nick Coutu, will be making his first USGT appearance at NJMP, but he will not have an impact on the points.

 

 

The Whelen US Time Trial (USTT) outlook also has several clear winners before the season concludes in October. 

 

 

TTU is being led by the Paul’s Automotive Engineering, Ford Mustang of Brian Faessler. Faessler, always in contention for the best lap of www.sascha-kasper.com the weekend, is ahead of the Hero Reward Dodge Viper of Mansen Way. In fact, the duo finished the 2014 season in the exact same positions. Neither driver is on the registration list as of this morning, but Way has an opportunity to regain first overall if he can make the competition.

 

 

TT1 is currently a tie for first between the #38 DBW Motorsports, Nissan GTR of rick MacPherson and the Pure Tuning Subaru STI of Tony Calabrese.  Each driver needs to score points in one of the remaining weekends to qualify for the title. Right now MacPherson is the cialis headaches only one of the two on the registration list.

 

 

The TT2 national title will go to Phil Grabow in his Element Tuning, Subaru STI. Grabow has a big lead over his closest competition, Bruce Chapman. Unfortunately it is almost an impossibility that we will see Chapman, who had to take himself out of the season for health reasons.

 

 

Walter Bobko could wrap up the 2015 TT3 title at NJMP with his #88 Bobko Financial, Ford Mustang. Earlier in the season, we mentioned that Bobko was new to the series, but it turns out he just had not been racing with NARRA since 2011. Well, he’s back, and he is already looking to claim a championship. At this point Bobko can only be challenged for the title by the Subaru STI of Tom Steffey. Steffey, at last word, was working hard to get ready in time for the NJMP event. 

 

 

This event is open for spectators and tickets can be purchased from NJMP online or at the gate. Don’t miss the action of the NARRA GT cars and the open wheel classes of the Formula Championship Series.

Viper 1 Pitt Race   
Arrow Racing Engines Grand Prix of Pitt Race Preview

 

The North American Road Racing Association (NARRA) visits the recently expanded Pittsburgh International Race Complex (Pitt Race) this weekend July 31st - August 2nd for the Arrow Racing Engines Grand Prix. Rounds 9 and 10 of the USGT and Whelen Time Trial championship promises to be a hard fought race for the national titles and the conclusion of the Great Lakes Cup regional title.

 

In the wheel to wheel action of the USGT series, the GTU (unlimited) class has four of cialis en mexico the top five position drivers ready to take on the new 2.8 miles of Pitt Race. The points leader, Tom Antonelli, in his All Chicago Fleet Dodge Viper #415 has been on the podium for six of the eight rounds already run this season. Antonelli holds a nine point lead over the second place RH Motorsports #53 Dodge Viper of Mike Hartley. After a rough start to the season, Hartley has come on strong winning two of the last four races. The Coastal Pet Motorsports #1 Dodge Viper of Jim Stout is in third place, but a good weekend could see him close the gap. Driver Louis-Philippe Montour and buy viagra china his #27 Le Bon Dodge Viper, currently in fifth place, could be the purchasing cialis with next d ay delivery wild card in this weekend’s race. Montour had a setback during the Forgeline Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio that caused him to miss Saturday’s race. He more than made up for it by winning Sunday’s race from start to finish. In fact, Montour has won each of the three NARRA races he started in this season. His presence at Pitt Race could mean a shift in the top three for the GTU championship.  Antonelli also leads the Great Lakes Cup and will need every point he can score to stay ahead of Stout.

 

The GT1 leaderboard has Russ Oasis and his V.E.R.T. / PartsRack #98 Dodge Viper on top followed by the #49 Dodge Viper of Dave Moore. Each driver has had a win and multiple other podium level finishes this season. They have finished within one position of each other several times, and this weekend could be pivotal to Moore closing the distance for the lead. Kurt Sollberger and his #48 Swiss Micron Dodge Viper has an opportunity to move into the top three if driver Seth Palatnik does not start.  Both Kathy Stout in the Arrow Racing Engines #2 Dodge Viper and Scott Welham in the #61 McCann Racing Dodge Viper will be looking to score well this weekend to improve their chances at making a run for the GT1 championship.

 

Victor Caldarelli Jr, in his Lintz Collision Dodge Viper is in control of the GT2 class. His rival, Chuck Quinton, driving his RotarySwing.com Ferrari 360 Challenge, had troubles during the June event at Virginia International Raceway (VIR). Quinton looks to be rejoining the fight at Pitt Race, but it may be in a different class. Caldarelli, no doubt disappointed that his closest competitor may be in another class, will still have to stay focused on the task at hand. Another Ferrari driver, Lance Cawley and his InSite Wireless Ferrari F430, has announced his intentions to move from GT1 into GT2. The Viper versus Ferrari battle will continue!

 

GT3 has been all Zach Davis and his #28 Chevrolet Corvette this season. After his competition had to end the season early at VIR, Davis ran uncontested at Mid-Ohio. Despite being able to cruise to a win, Davis drove like the entire season was on the line. Davis, unable to attend the Pitt Race event, will no doubt be watching the buy zetia without a prescription results to see if an unknown GT3 competitor turns up.

 

The Whelen US Time Trial championship TTU leader, Brian Faessler in his Paul’s Automotive Engineering #11 Ford Mustang is eager to continue his winning ways and generic levitra canadian put some distance between himself and the second place driver Mansen Way. Mansen is working on a last minute thrash to repair an engine problem that also kept him out of the competition at Mid-Ohio.  If Mansen can’t make the show, the #1 NASCAR of Leland Blanding could move into the third or even second place position overall.

 

The TT2 class leader Phil Grabow is working to get his Element Tuning Subaru STI ready for the weekend. With his closest competition sidelined for the remainder of viagra buy drug the season, Grabow could extend his lead and essentially wrap up the national title if he is able to get his car to the race.

 

The surprise story in TT3 is that of Walter Bobko. With his #88 Ford Mustang Laguna Seca, Bobko could move into first place in the Great Lakes Cup and even the overall championship. He will be facing local competition from two different Corvette drivers who are more familiar with Pitt Race. Bobko joined NARRA for the first time at Mid-Ohio and it looks like he will be at two of the remaining three events.

 

The Arrow Racing Engines Grand Prix of Pitt Race could see several overall lead changes in the North American road Racing championship and the racing will be exciting as the drivers get used to the new parts of Pittsburgh International Race Complex. There will be live music from Mothers Little Helpers, the BRGR and Franktuary food trucks, and Flashlight Drag Racing at Pitt Race after 5pm on Friday (July 31st).
