NASA Texas Region at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit

Hallett Motor Racing Circuit is a 1.8 mile, 10 turn Road Racing course in the rolling Osage Hills of North Eastern Oklahoma. It is located 35 miles west of Tulsa, Oklahoma, at the Highway 99 exit of the Cimarron Turnpike. This is a fantastic place to race. It is a superb track to drive and the great staff made this a fun and enjoyable week end for my first visit in the newly clad Mazda-Allison Legacy Car #17. NASA Texas Region sanctioned event.

 

Leading up to this event, I completely stripped the old beat up fiber glass body from the car. The goal was to inspect the entire chassis, add a tray to hold the Cool Shirt cooler in the back of the car and install a brand new body with new colors. Thanks to my friend Jay Carley from TLM Racing for showing me many tips for putting the puzzle together and demonstrating how to apply line tape for the new paint scheme, the task at hand took just 2 weeks to complete.

Racing in the Performance Touring division PTC, the car #17 Mazda 3 was ready to attack this new track following some much needed testing at Eagles Canyon the week before. With untested Hancock slick tires for the Saturday's practice, qualifying and two 20-minute races, my plan was to learn the track, not make any "serious" mistakes and drive as hard as I could. Following the practice session, all I had to do was make an air pressure adjustment to the tires and a gear change to lower the final drive ratio.
