One Lap of America

Every now and then the planets align in the correct formation and all goes right with the world, such was the case this afternoon. We arrived at Mid America Motor Sports complex at about 9 am with the Charger running beautifully. The new fuel pump was installed and tested and It was also a bright and sunny day in the mid-70’s… perfect track weather. From a spectator point of view, Mid America is a great track because it’s completely flat and you can see everything. Since the track is not overly technical it’s a great place to test out the basic handling manners of your car.

My buddy Chris was driving today which for me was a big thing as I had never let anyone else drive my car on the track. We met 3 years ago on another rally where I had seen him sling his 1977 Trans Am around Moroso Motor Sports Park in Florida. Driving regular cars quickly is one thing, but driving a 42 year old muscle car fast is a totally different story. Chris went out on track and proceeded to click off three great laps. He was smooth and the car looked and performed great which obviously kept my heart at ease.

The cars were broken into groups based on how they performed during the previous days events. Porsche’s, Corvette’s, Vipers and even a wicked Mazda 5 mini-van (yes, I said minivan) all went out and tore up the track together.

As it was now day 4 the competitors themselves were also starting to loosen up and mingle a bit more amoungst themselves, it was great. Another thing to consider is that it doesn’t matter what you drive as cars from every automotive genre are represented on the One Lap.

It’s now 7:38 pm and we’re currently trucking through Kansas on our way to Hallet Motor Racing Circut in Jennings, Oklahoma for tomorrow’s event. We have 167 miles to go and the sun is just starting to set in what can only be described as “God’s Country”. Cruising threw it now, in a vintage American muscle car, makes this experience the perfect end to a perfect day.
