JERRY TAMES TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY at 170 mph!!!!
A couple years ago, I had the opportunity to get behind the wheel and drive 30 laps at Texas Motor Speedway in a former Jimmie Johnson Cup car. My debut behind the wheel of a NASCAR stock car. My fastest lap average speed on the 1.5 mile tri-oval was over 153 mph, with a straight away speed in excess of 170 mph. Being behind the wheel of such a heavy car with that much horsepower was the thrill of a lifetime (or until I do it again)! So far no one from NASCAR has called for my services.
