2013 One Lap of America Results for White Trash the Poorvette.

Well the results are in and we have exceeded our expectations for the 2013 One Lap of America. With a main goal of just making and completing all of the events and finishing in the top thirty five we actually much much better. We won our Vintage Foreign Class again for the second year in a row.

Our overall finishing position was 26th, just 215 points behind a new 2013 Corvette ZR1 that has several years of experience of One Lap and had driven all of the tracks we were on multiple times. Not only that but the ZR1 didn't spin out in two events like I did( I will work on that one ), so we were close to a top twenty five.

In the spirit of sportsmanship I was humbled and lucky enough to be presented the George Schuster Sportsmanship Award for helping other competitors that were having car trouble during the event.

Our friends Kyle Tucker and Ryan Mathews from Detroit Speed won third place with their "Monster" and also won the Rookie of the year award.

Stay turned for more follow up for highlights and link to our track you tube videos to follow soon. I just have to figure out how to edit my spins out of them.....

Our picture with Glenn Dodd a legend of One Lap of America and the man we both spoke to about joining One Lap several years ago when Herman and I went to see One Lap come through to try to find out what and how to of e event.

Day seven skid pad complete

When we arrive the dry skid pad looked as though it was gong to wet but as usual when pulled out the tent it stopped raining. Got love being prepared. 

With the cars lined up in reverse standing order we went out and did very well. In the dry skid pad we finished in ninth position overall in the event.  

Congratulations to Leh Keen Lemans and Grand Am driver for winning his fourth consecutive One Lap of America. 

Day seven ..... Tire Rack dry skid pad.

We made it. Every day and every event that was run, we even went over through to the Drag Race that was cancelled due to rain just for good measure. As we look back , this week really flew by with few problems other than the XM radio loosing signal now and a again or the auxiliary power going out on us but repaired.  White Trash did well overall, we feel we could change the oil and take off again. 

What a week.

Day six of OLOA 2013 is now complete

After a nice dinner with our fellow competitors Kyle Tucker and Ryan Mathews from Detroit Speed Shop we have retired to our room early. We will have a photo op first thing in the morning at the Tire Rack and our last event for the One Lap of America the dry skid pad. 

Day six in transit back to South Bend

It's early afternoon and we are in transit following the Vintage Domestic group back to South Bend Indiana for our last event the hopefully dry skid pad. By the GPS it says we will have an early arrival, maybe one more gas stop so that we will have the right amount of fuel in the car for tomorrow's event.
