http://youtu.be/d7FfTvwNu2w

This video is an extremely condensed selection of some crazy event clips we @ Team Hall & Nass and #Motorama LIVE filmed between 2009 & 2014. Most of what you’ll see here is never before seen, raw, and unpublished footage.

NOTE – A lot of the early days footage was shot in SD, so unfortunately, we had to process those scenes in SD to include those clips. Darn those days before we acquired all the 1080p GoPros!

ALSO NOTE – Some scenes were filmed on a closed course, with professional drivers … (blah, blah, blah). But some of it is from our road rally days, back when we didn’t give 2 flips about “the rules” (as if we ever really did anyway). Haters gonna hate, but our fans are gonna LOVE it!

So get in, sit down, strap in and hang on tight! We’re about to shred a LOT of tires, pass a LOT of cars and show you a glimpse of what we’ve been up to over the past 5 years.

In closing, we’d like to remind you …

IF YOU’VE JUST BEEN PASSED, YOU’RE NOT HALL & NASS

NORC 150 MPH Class Team Hall & Nass Z06 ORR May 2012 Full Course Run

The Mission – Drive down 90 miles of two lane blacktop on a closed public highway, breaking the light beam on the other end at as close to a perfect 150 MPH average in 36 Minutes FLAT as humanly possible.

The following is the Motorama LIVE Team Hall & Nass Corvette Z06 Open Road Racing in the 150 MPH Class at the Nevada Open Road Challenge (NORC) on Nevada Highway NV 318, May 20th, 2012. This is the Spring race, which is an exact replica of the Silver State Classic Challenge (SSCC) that runs every September.

PLEASE NOTE – Our race grid footage was chopped off to allow this video to begin at the true exact zeroing ‘0’ of the SSCC atomic timing and scoring clock on professional editing software. This video shows our entire run in all of its raw, unedited glory, then continues on less than a minute after the finish line as we say our recorded time aloud and exchange high fives. So sit back and enjoy 36 minutes of LS7 singing along two lane blacktop for 90 miles in an attempt to average a perfect 150 MPH average speed in 36 minutes flat on NV 318.

Additional information on this run:

As stated above, the goal in the 150 MPH Class at NORC and SSCC is to run the 90 mile course on NV 318 in 36 minutes flat at a perfect 150 MPH average. This is time/speed/distance racing on an uber scale.

The Result – Silver State Classic Challenge official timing and scoring listed our run as 36:00.5473 seconds at an average speed of 149.9620 MPH.

What is interesting is that our clocks (and the one on this video) show us as running it in 35:59.88 seconds at just a tick over 150 MPH. Ironically, note that IF our time of .12 of a second off of perfect had been recognized as our official scoring time, it still would have only been good enough for 3rd place out of the 14 entrants in the 150 MPH Class, as the winning time was a 35:59.0164. Yes, the competition in the 150 MPH Class is THAT tight! However, SSCC official time puts us in 6th place overall in the 150 MPH Class.

This video just goes to show that no matter how good YOU may think you are in time/speed/distance Open Road Racing, the fact remains that in the end, you are ONLY as good as someone else’s timing system in the official record books. Like it or not, sometimes, those are just the breaks in ORR.

We race because we love the speed, the people and the cars. The love of the sport is our friend, even if sometimes, the timing clocks are not.

We’ll be back …

Team Hall & Nass and DSTROYR at the Silver State Classic Challenge

Team Hall & Nass look to DSTROY the competition at the famous desert race

DALLAS, Texas, September 15, 2011 – Team Hall & Nass today officially announces its continued sponsorship alliance with one of the coolest emerging lifestyle brands in the United States, DSTROYR, for the upcoming Silver State Classic Challenge Open Road Race to be run on Nevada Highway 318 on September 18th, 2011.

DSTROYR was started by artist and designer Jon Chase as a blog, with a mission to shine a spotlight on the local in and around the community of Riverside, California. Today, the DSTROYR site covers a wide variety of endeavors and helps spread the word about the latest, coolest things coming out of Southern California in the artistic community, motorsports scene and beyond.

DSTROYR is on a mission to turn people on to something new. While the DSTROYR brand of apparel began from a simple necessity to promote their site, today it has become a reflection of influences. The concept behind DSTROYR is simple – be the best you can be for yourself. DSTROYR’s motto is “Whatever you desire to excel at, kill it, own it, DSTROY it!”

Team Hall & Nass driver Berry Lowman said, “DSTROYR is one of the coolest enterprises we’ve encountered on the automotive/speed/rally lifestyle scene. Their designs and their message are on the cutting edge, which is exactly where Team Hall & Nass likes to be. We believe in Jon’s philosophy and continue to support their cause. Pairing up with DSTROYR for the Silver State Classic Challenge will enable us to look and be that much better while we DSTROY the competition!”

Team Hall & Nass to Compete in Silver State Classic Challenge

Team Hall & Nass to Compete in Silver State Classic Challenge

Father and Son to compete together in a race-prepped 2007 Corvette Z06 on NV 318

LAS VEGAS, Nev., September 15th, 2011 – Team Hall & Nass today officially announces its entry into the field of the longest running open road race event in the United States, the famed Silver State Classic Challenge, to be held on Nevada Highway 318 on Sunday, September 18th, 2011.

In a twist on the usual driver/navigator configuration of Team Hall & Nass, this Silver State Classic Challenge effort will consist of road rally driver Berry Lowman serving as navigator alongside his father, unlimited powerboat legend and open road racer, Lanny Lowman. The father and son duo will work together as they attempt to win the 150 MPH class in their race-prepped 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06.

To accomplish this challenge, Team Hall & Nass must quickly get up to speed from a standing start, focusing on their ultimate quest to average a perfect 150 MPH, while staying underneath their class-maximum technical speed ceiling of 165 MPH. They must navigate the many long straits and winding corners of two-lane blacktop that comprise Nevada Highway 318 for a grueling, but lightning-fast, 90 miles. The car in their class closest to a perfect 150 MPH average over the 90 mile distance will win the class trophy.

It is not the first time this particular duo have joined forces in open road racing. This father and son combo have worked together before to compete in the Nevada Open Road Challenge in the 110 and the 125 MPH classes, with tech speeds up to 165 MPH. The Lowmans have also previously seen success at the Bonneville 100 in the highly competitive 110 MPH & 140 MPH classes with tech speeds up to 168 MPH.

Team Hall & Nass driver Berry Lowman said, “The Silver State Classic Challenge is the original and longest running event of the 100% legal open road races held annually in the United States. While this event offers a bit of something for everyone, the 150 MPH class at Silver State demands a much greater level of skill, cooperation and competition to win than any other open road racing event because it often comes down to a couple thousandths of a second separating a 1st place victory from a sorry 2nd. Plus, racing through the canyon known as ‘The Narrows’ poses a whole other level of psychological challenge that tests the abilities of veteran open road racers to the maximum. Silver State is truly a unique event, and one we intend to win!”

About Open Road Racing

While this type of racing is commonly referred to as “Open Road Racing,” it actually occurs on sections of temporarily closed public highway during the actual racing events. There is no risk to the general public, no oncoming traffic, no section of the road outside of the watchful eye of race command communications, and most importantly, no location on the course in which a race vehicle is ever more than one mile away from a course safety worker. There are typically ambulances with specially trained EMT crews located at each end, or in the middle of the course. There is also typically a life flight helicopter on standby at the midway point of the course at certain venues, but not at all.

Even though regular OEM passenger automobiles are eligible to enter, and they typically comprise upwards of 75% or greater of each open road racing field of cars, this is in no way a typical Sunday drive. With speed classes typically ranging from as low as 95 MPH all the way up to unlimited classes at some venues, it is not unheard of to see open road racing vehicles averaging speeds over 200 MPH for up to 100 miles with straightaway speeds in excess of 220 MPH on two-lane blacktop highways with less than optimal curves, not on perfectly smooth, banked corner race tracks.

Safety is paramount to the successful operation of open road racing events and the continuation of the sport. There are varying levels of safety gear required for all cars that enter these events. The faster the speed class, the greater amount of technical safety gear required. Contrary to popular belief, you cannot simply “run what you bring” without adding at least some measure of safety gear to your car and passing a rigorous technical safety inspection.

Due to the nature of this type of racing, it has been deemed “the most dangerous form of motor sports in the world”. It also happens to be the most exciting for participants.

About the Silver State Classic Challenge

The Silver State Classic Challenge is perhaps the best known of the four events left on the annual schedule of ORRs and is the oldest open road race in continuous operation. Having began in 1988 as a truly open road race event with no classes, gear limitations or safety rules, the Silver State Classic Challenge gained momentum over the years as the place to go test your medal (and your metal) against the open road in the ultimate time/speed/distance race on a public highway. As the race grew in size, it also grew in rules and regulations, evolving into what is today a series of progressive speed classes ranging from 95 MPH all the way up to the granddaddy of them all, the Unlimted class.

The 2011 event features four days of activities, with technical inspections and a welcome luncheon at Sam’s Town Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on Thursday, September 24th, on site technical inspections and a “Parade of Cars” in Ely, Nevada on Friday the 16th, a public car show of all race vehicles on Saturday the 17th, and the 24th running of the Silver State Classic Challenge on Sunday, September 18th, with an awards banquet back in Las Vegas at Sam’s Town Casino on Sunday night.

The Silver State Classic Challenge is held due to the participation of over 100 race teams from around the globe, generous volunteer help from the Las Vegas Corvette Club, volunteer workers from all over the state of Nevada, and the permission and cooperation of the Nevada Department of Transportation.
