This wild creation won the Grassroots Motorsports $2015 Challenge. Andrew Nelson, known for posting 10-second Challenge drag times, broke the ladder bar on his V8 Volkswagen Beetle on his very first pass. After hours of welding, Andrew and family had mended the suspension well enough for one more run. They made that single run count with a 10.396-second time, earning them a healthy win in the drag racing portion of the Challenge.

Turns out he’s also a big car nut, and he brought his turbo Porsche to our 2015 Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge. The bad news is that Dez only completed half of the first timed session before an off-track excursion sent him into the catch-fence at the “Climbing Esses.” Even so, with only a few laps under his belt, he finished in an incredible 6th place overall, and was the fastest Porsche in attendance with a 1:54.411 lap time.

Can you guess what’s 6 years old on this thing? That’s right, it’s the tires. Michael Levitas piloted TPC Racing’s 1990 Porsche GT2 Evo around VIR during our 2015 Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge on what presumably felt like round black rocks.
