Default XRAY Challenge at Porter, TX

Sweep Racing tires EXP 50s did it again !!!! Just came home from the 2011 XRAY Challenge at Gulf Coast Raceway in Porter, TX.

The qualifying rounds started Saturday. For the 1st qualifying round, air temp was about 61 degrees. Therefore I decided to put on a set of EXP 45s. With the 45s I was able to set the TQ pace for everyone else. Second qualifying round I had a little trouble with my brake fading thus finished 2nd but no one was able to set the new TQ pace. By the third round the air temp had reached 89 degrees with asphalt temp of 116 degrees. I went ahead and changed my tires to EXP 50s all around. The decision was the correct one. I was able to set a new TQ in the third qualifying round.

The 40 min. A Main started around 1pm in the afternoon on Sunday. The air temp was about 90 degrees at the start of the main. I wanted to try a set of 55s but I didn't have a set available at the time so I went ahead and used a set of 50s for the main. Before the start of the main I realized 50s might be little too soft for the 40 min long main so I knew tire temp control during the race will play an important role in the main. As it turned out I was correct. After 25 min. into the main my car started to push little bid going into the turns and started to drift little bid coming out of the corners. At that point I started to ease on the throttle at acceleration and simply roll the corners little more to take home the 1st place win. Although the 50s worked fine but I think 55s would have giving me few more extra laps at the end.

Thumbs up 3Hours of TimeZone

Well we had a great time... AND we did not have to make a tire change.
The EXP 50's went for three hours and 496 laps!
That makes the total distance driven by our winning team over 91 miles, which is an average speed of over 30mph

The car ran non-stop and we never broke a part.. The OFNA was awsome and the tires went the distance... ..
I got the car home and went through it and no ruined parts... Just need some bearings and a new rod in the motor..just for safety sake..

Spook we had a great time.. Monty Houston was on a team and he repalced a Blown Motor for Holt racing, and they were charging hard on fresh tires and a EVIL 3 port NovaRossi that Monty tuned!...
I will be getting my motors from him from now on!... $200 for the motor! and he will add a heavier rod to take the pounding that we are putting on them, if you like.
Houstons Engine Service ... check him out!
