    Texas Mile 2011

    EDIT: Due to the high traffic here, I'm not the original poster of these images nor did I take them. Scott Carr AKA HK Phooey on NASIOC posted them and I recirculated them: HERE

    Hinson Supercars lost a vette. Driver is ok, possibly due to a tire, and LMR had tire issues as well with their crazy Camaro.











    Flaco cutting close to 200! He ran 199 in another pass.

    Expensive weekend for those guys.

    I was following Hinson's progress on CorvetteForum. Crazy about the flip.

    The vett that crashed made ~1800 on an engine dyno. The LMR camaro made 1800 to the wheels on a stingy dyno.

    Well FTV6 might have gotten a few good hits today as this post was referenced to on Jalopnik. Absolutely didn't expect that.
