Default Corvette Drag racing video?

I remember seeing a video of some guys out at Raceway park (I think) on a cold wintery day a few years back at a practice session that featured a couple of Vettes- one a black Zo6 that would run 8 sec 1/4 miles. Driver of the car was named Paul, but not Paul Major.

The video was set to music and I seem to remember Arnie (Somebody that statred with a C, I think) that produced it.

It was a great video and loved the music and the runs you guys were putting down.


Anybody got a link to that video, I would appreciate seeing it again.

Thanks

It was a CARTEK built stock cube motor. The owner name was Paul Z.

That's the one. Thanks Edger. I knew one of you diehard racers would know what I was talking about, even if I did have most of the facts a little fuzzy.

Great video and great cars.

That was a fun day, it was also the day you ran your first 10 (a 10.96?) as well I believe.
