Insight Racing Update

Monday, February 13th, 2012

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!

Announcing Insight Racing

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

An exciting new partnership has been brewing in late 2011 and we are happy to announce that in 2012, Jeff Westphal Racing and Tactical Night Vision Company will be working together during Jeff’s Grand Am Continental Sports Car campaign with Insight Racing in the #19 BMW M3.

Jeff Westphal was introduced to TNVC CEO, Victor Di Cosola at Infineon Raceway while attending Jim Russell Racing School (now Simraceway Performance Driving) where the two had a significant amount of business similarities, making it a wise choice for a technical partnership. “TNVC and Victor operate with a high level of precision, which helps give our military and law enforcement customers an advantage over the opposition, the same type of attention to detail and precision that I look for in a race team. I have been working with Insight Racing since mid 2011, and they are the perfect ally to have with the JWR and TNVC partnership as their endurance racing background is so detail dependent and oriented.” Explained Jeff “TNVC and I will be working together with Insight Racing to help bring awareness of tactical equipment for consumers around the globe, as well as expand business opportunities for industry related companies.”

TNVC is a California based company with operations based in Wisconsin and California.. They supply many branches of the US Government, and U.S. Law Enforcement with Night Vision products and training. Victor Di Cosola, The President/CEO was and is adamant about creating a knowledgeable company for people to learn about and purchase proper night vision equipment, the type and quality resource he would have loved during his early years. “I take much pride in being able to help save the lives of our boys overseas, anything I can do to give them a leg up on the opposition, TNVC is ready to support them. I have a great respect for what our troops go through, as well as any professional in their industry. To be at the top of your craft in anything it takes much dedication and skill, so I am confident TNVC has partnered with the right people in motorsports to help elevate the image of all the parties involved.” Said Victor.

You will be able to catch Jeff Westphal and TNVC in the 2012 Continental Tire Sports Car Series races with the Insight Racing #19 BMW M3, broadcast on Speed channel.
