Alpha 12 GTR vs Bird’s Camaro.
We were at the Call Out Dig Race by Stance Autoworks in Houston recently during TX2k and saw this pass, which by far was the biggest upset of the night from the 100+ cars which were on the entry list. Brian’s Alpha 12 GTR from TopSpeed Motorsports was stacked up in the 2nd round against Bird’s Camaro. This has become a real storm of comments on the dig list as well as on Facebook. Some say the Camaro jumped while others call it as the GTR “was sleeping” on the go. Whatever the case may be, the upset of the night was in this race. 1000’s packed this hidden airstrip somewhere in Northern Houston to see these cars battle it out for a cash money pot in a winner-take-all ladder.
We were pulling for Brian’s GTR, but the proof is in the pudding that this Camaro was ready when at the line and took the W. Congrats to Bird, who went a few more rounds. If you were out there, how did you see it?
For those who were expecting the GTR to take it all, here is Brian’s 1st race:
Damn my neck hurts just watching it! These GTR’s are knocking down the times. This one is still All-Wheel and it is not tubbed. As a street car, this monster would hurt feelings and be quite the “Pull up at the track” threat! That is a 1.29 60′ on that 174mph pass, in case you were wondering. Watch it after the click….
