Insight Racing Update

Just before SHOT Show we introduced you to Insight Racing, a partnership between Jeff Westphal Racing and Tactical Night Vision Company. We just received this report on the #19 BMW M3.

TNVC Sponsored driver Jeff Wesphal kicked off a few weeks ago at Daytona Speedway in the Grand Am Continental Sports Car Challenge where TNVC owner Vic Di Cosola had the rare opportunity to get out of the office to watch him race.

The event started out in the rain where Jeff qualified 15th with a new car that had never been tested, nor driven on the track due to the cars motor getting completed just in time from the Dinan engine folks. While the motor was great, chassis setups now had to be adjusted for the race.

As the race started in the rain, all cars were on their wet tires and then we all got to see Jeff’s magic rain dance! He started to pass cars like they were going backwards and by lap 10 he was leading the race!

As the rain stopped, cars began to pit to get the slicks back on where comm issues on the radio surfaced and Jeff could not pit with the rest of the field. The delayed pit stop put the team near the back of the pack.

When it was all said and done, Jeff’s co-driver Martin Jensen took over at the 1.5 hour mark and climbed to the finish at 15th place where they started.

Vic Di Cosola went on to say, “These are exciting times, and our hopes in the racing circuit is to get the masses seeing the tactical community and our Military/LE in a continued highlight.” Folks can see the full Continental Race schedule here. Be sure if a race is in your area to stop by and say “Hi” to Jeff. This series is what NASCAR used to be!
