The fact that Mark was able to be that close to a new style corvette with what looks like some serious parts, in a 43 year old car is just testimony to what a hell of a car he built and what a great driver he is.

Mark "lost" by being 2 seconds slower on the road course -- other than that it was a TIE for 1st on points overall...

The whole thing was EPIC!

My feet and legs are falling off -- I'm sunburned -- and I just now got back to my Vegas room after leaving this AM @ 4:30 and I wouldn't trade it for anything... OPTIMA once again put on a great event and I loved every minute of it!

Amen I have to add, he is doing it in TRUE protouring fashion as well. His car weighs 3600lbs and it ain't no racecar with license plates. I'll leave it at that.

I saw the note on BS website, congratulations to Danny on the win! And what a great car, and congratulations to Mark Stielow, no matter what car beats Red Devil, it's still #1, and all the fuzz it has been made aroun Red Devil at SEMA it's amazing, you've nailed it Mark.
