Mosport Canada



World Challenge Sports Car Wars headed far north and east for rounds 4 & 5 at Mosport Raceway. Mosport is a fast challenging track nested in the countryside of Bowmanville, Ontario Canada. Just outside Toronto in the prestine suburbs lies one of the quickest race tracks in North America. History is deep here and stories range from old Formula 1 races in the 50's and 60's to 24 hour endurance races and watching out for wolves at night!

Thank you Eric Meyer and go XOWii Racing and Mazda!

Long Beach Grand Prix and World Challenge meet Ashley van Dyke

Sports car wars came to Long Beach with a full field of hungry World Challenge drivers. I was there to check out the competition and interview some drivers.

Dodge took the pole and held on to it all race. Clean moves around lap traffic and no mistakes lead Kuno Whittmer to victory lane in the GT class.

The battles going on for 2nd, 3rd and 4th went on hard the entire second half of the race. Boris Said and Dino Crescentini along with Brandon Davis and veteran Ron Fellows all trying to get in on the action. Ron blows up and is unable to get a finish.

Jimmie Johnson is Superman


Four races into the 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup season and Jimmie Johnson has already been all over the board. Proving again to everyone that no matter what comes way to the 48 team they can prevail with strong pit stops and the right calls. High energy with 2 wins and currently sitting 4th in points. "Jimmie is a computer and Chad is the man behind the computer," Darrell Waltrip said on Sunday. I think he's right. Question is who else can figure out this system or a system comparable to contest the 48 car from another championship.

The circuit rolls into Bristol this weekend. Saddle up and enjoy the high bank ride!!
