Lux and White Eager for High Speed Challenge of Mosport
NayKid Racing and Dodge Team Up For Second Time in SPEED World Challenge
BOWMANVILLE, ONT. Canada - Mosport International Raceway is the fastest course that the SPEED World Challenge GT will visit this season and that is just fine with NayKid Racing. When Cindi Lux (Aloha, Ore.) and Scotty B. White (Lake Tapps, Wash.) pull their Dodge Viper Competition Coupes onto Canada's granddaddy of race tracks it will be the first time all year that their white, blue and orange machines will have a track layout in which they can make a full strike. The street circuits and 20-plus turn tracks they have visited to this point will pale in outright speed and driver daring that the 2.5 mile, 10- turn, Bowmanville, Ontario track will draw from the pair. Making Mosport even more exciting for the Lux, the first woman to ever win an American Le Mans Series sanctioned championship, and White, a winner in the SPEED World Challenge, is that it again joins NayKid Racing with the Canadian arm of Dodge. Dodge and NayKid will team to enter the No. 2 Dodge/Mintex Brakes/Red Line Oil Dodge Viper Competition Coupe for Lux and White's No. 3 Corsa Performance/Forgeline Dodge Viper Comp Coupe. It is the fourth race, overall, for NayKid Racing this season.
Again highlighting NayKid's visit to Canada will be the latest recipients in the Dodge Viper Pit Pass Challenge. The Dodge Viper Pit Pass Challenge provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a lucky entrant to become part of the NayKid Racing crew for the weekend. Mosport will be the second time that Dodge has brought two fans to the track where they join the NayKid crew and learn what it takes to be a part of professional motorsports. The first Dodge Viper Pit Pass Challenge winners visited NayKid Racing at Toronto where they got the full array of personal attention including free round-trip transportation to the race, accommodations, team race credentials, a membership in the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), official NayKid Racing team- only apparel, time with both Lux and White and $1,000 Canadian spending money. That long list of prizes awaits the Mosport winners as well. The contest, found at www.viperpitcrew.ca, began in the spring and ran until just recently when the two winners for Mosport were selected.
Mosport is a special place to both Lux and White. The track's long sweeping turns and overall speed draws the most out of the Dodge Viper Comp. Coupes, race- bred machines based on their front-engine, V10- powered street counterparts. Being successful at Mosport demands skill, bravado and precision driving. A failure in any one of these components and the day could end early and spectacularly. Lux and White flourish on the challenge and the speed of the fast track that snakes over hills, down valleys and through the beautiful, wooded scenery of Ontario. There is no better environment for the NayKid Racing-Dodge Vipers to strike for their first SPEED World Challenge victory of the season.
The Grand Prix of Mosport can be seen on SPEED Channel, Saturday, September 1 at 2 pm (ET).
Cindi Lux: "I wish all race fans were crazy and wild about motorsports like the Canadian fans. Racing in front of these fans is great and they certainly dig the Vipers beating and banging on the Porsches, Corvettes and Cadillac's in World Challenge. I know all the spectators at Mosport will get a treat when the World Challenge cars hit the track. The second-round of contest winners from the Dodge Viper Pit Pass Challenge will be on hand with our team too. This promotion has been awesome and the response has been overwhelming from the Dodge fans. To be honest, I wouldn't expect anything else from these loyal race fans. I know that Scotty and I are ready to drive the wheels off of our Vipers to get them to the front so this great Canadian crowd can have something to scream and shout about."
Scotty B. White: "I'm finally going back to one of my favorite tracks in North America; Mosport. I haven't been here in seven years but I am so jacked- up about running this daunting track in our Dodge Vipers! This track is like trying to race on top of a fence; one foot offline is like falling off a cliff! If you're one foot off the racing line you better have scrubbed off an extra 20 miles per hour more entering the corner than if you were hitting your marks or disaster is eminent. That challenge and the fans are the beauty that is Mosport. I have always loved racing up here because of the Canadian fans. These people just dig sports car racing. They get it, they love it and they live for it! It just doesn't get any better."
