Redline Track Events Round 1 at Willow Springs Raceway in Rosamond, CA 3/5/11 – 3/6/11



Paul Brown takes advantage of his higher horsepower K&N Engineering G35 Twin Turbo and overtakes Lou Gigliotti at the last moment of the race.  Brown was able to motor the Corvette down the straight for the win in this matchup.  


The Fontana Nissan GTR driven by Cort Wagner took advantage of the 700hp on tap.  The Fontana Nissan GTR is still essentially a street car yet was able to put up a good fight against the purpose built race cars in the Pro Track Challenge. 


Eventual winner Joe Scarallo in the Group A Wheels Pontiac GTO was unshakable in his straight shot to the top.  The finals match up between Scarillo and Sheenan in the Fontana Nissan 350Z was close, but the GTO never gave the 350Z  a chance to pass.  The Pontiac would lay down clean lap after clean lap in his burly sounding GTO and came out on top unscathed and the inaugural Redline Time Attack Pro Track Challenge winner.  

 Joey Scarallo pilots his Group A Wheels Pontiac GTO around the track.  Scarallo would set the fastest time of the day and also fought hard to become the first Pro Track Challenge winner. The GTO body work is full dry carbon fiber and is one of the meanest cars I have ever seen. 


I can’t wait to see how Hollywood puts its spin on the Pro Track Challenge in the upcoming Circuit Battles TV show airing on the Versus channel on March 26th.  Set your TIVO’s! 


 The Redline staff member receives the brunt of the champagne victory shower.  The final results were Scarallo, Sheehan, and Brown.  


 The next stop for the Redline series is Phoenix for round 2 at Firebird International Raceway.  We will be waiting!
