History of SNOWFLAKE

First Owner:

Email from David Pintaric (original owner/racer):
The car was initially built by Rees Cox, then traded to Joe Aquilante (Phoenix Racing) in 2003. Joe went through it completely before he delivered it to me (to Joe's credit, he won't deliver a car that's half ass).
I bent the rear frame at Gateway in 2004, I think. We had it straightened, and I think it came back from the frame shop with better specs than when it came from the factory. I understand this is common with race cars.
The car was a real good running C5. If I didn't run out of gas, I would have finished Top Ten in the 2005 Run Offs. I sold it to Jerry in June of 2006.

The car set a new T1 track record at Memphis Motorsports Park on Sunday, March 12th at 1:12.69. Previous record was 1:13.1+ held by Chris Ingle and set in August 2005. 
I don't have official results in front of me, but I have been told that this car was the 2nd fastest T1 Corvette at the SCCA National race at Summit Point this past weekend. 

I ran a 1:21.3XX (will edit when I see the results) off a 1:21.6 2005 track record. Unfortunately the new track record is 1:18.9 set by Andrew Aquilante in a Viper. The fastest 'Vette was driven by Lance Knupp at a 1:19.9 (2005 Run Offs podium finisher).
The car and I finished in 2nd place in the April 23rd SCCA National at Gingerman.
