TEXAS CORVETTE FANS ENJOY RELIEF
FROM THE HEAT
Corvette fans and owners, including the "Team
Texas" C5 Registry members, took
a break from the 108 degree heat at the Speedvision World Challenge
event Sept. 1-3 at Texas Motor
Speedway. Naykid Racing provided a "Corvette Fan
Appreciation Station," a special shaded area with seating and
complimentary ice-cold lemonade for
the devoted fans.
"Shade was at a premium in the paddock,"
explained team owner/driver Scotty B.
White. "Because of the extreme conditions, we created the station
as an area of respite
for the fans to escape from the heat and get some cool refreshment.
We appreciate their support and wanted to do what we could for
them to enjoy the event."
In addition, there was a special session for C5
Registry members to meet with
Speedvision GT Corvette drivers Scotty B. White, Terry Lackey, Phil
McClure, J. Bob Taylor, and
car-builder Doug Rippie for photos, autographs and
"We plan to continue and expand this
format," assures White. "The Corvette fans
are very active. At nearly all of the events, there are caravans of
Vettes who come to the races. Their
support is very important to the
Corvette racing programs, not just NayKid Racing,
but all the Corvette teams in
the Speedvision World Challenge series."
During the race, White rallied from his 24th spot
on the grid to put the West
Coast Corvettes DRM C500/R in 10th place, his third Top 10 finish this
season. The record-setting heat forced
many drivers, including White, to conserve
The next stop on the Speedvision GT series
calendar is at Road Atlanta. NaKid
Racing will once again host a Corvette Fan Appreciation Station during
the Petit Le Mans weekend, Sept.
