Club Spring Mountain News - June 2014

Celebrate our 10th Anniversary: 2004 - 2014

Reflections on ten memorable years

Ten years have flown by since 01-AerialViewSMJune2014Spring Mountain partners purchased 193-acres of desert land with a 2.2-mile road course, a driving school with a fleet of 8 Corvettes, two tent structures and portable restrooms. In the early days a Mobile office building was utilized for classroom operations (with flushable toilets) while the first building was constructed and the track gradually expanded. The rest is history. A visionary's dreams led us to the destination we now call Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club. Reality has far surpassed the partners' expectations, and we are still striving to create a motorsports experience second-to-none in the world.

During this journey we have been thankful to work with the most incredible staff, many of whom have been with us since the beginning, and all who share our passion for providing exceptional products and services to our valued Club members, their families and friends. Russ Meads, our General Contractor, built the entire facility and paved the way through countless miles of local, state and federal red tape to make it happen. Russ, along with the phenomenal members of our staff, are the primary reason for our success.

02-clubOur accomplishments would never have been possible without the support of our loyal and enthusiastic Club members who encouraged our ideas and were alongside us every step of the way. Please join us in celebrating a remarkable ten years of growth, innovation and achievements at Club Spring Mountain! During the next few months the 10th Anniversary festivities will be announced and we look forward to seeing all of our Club members in attendance.

We are grateful for your support and encouragement, and thank you sincerely for believing in the dream. It's been an eventful ride and the best is yet to come as we make plans for the next ten years.

Surprise Homecoming at Spring Mountain

Memorial Day Surprise for Wife of Marine aired on TODAY show

Lieutenant Nathan Lowman is a 04-LtLowmanCorvette-loving Air Force Reservist who bought his wife Cindy (who also loves cars) a three-day Corvette performance driving course for her birthday while he was deployed overseas. With Cindy believing that Nathan was in Southeast Asia on a mission, he organized an elaborate plan to surprise her in person. Upon arrival at Spring Mountain, Cindy and her daughter were asked to participate in taping for some promotional material and answered a couple of questions on camera about their love of Corvettes and what brought them to the school. With a lineup of Corvettes in the background, Lt. Lowman surprised them by removing this helmet when being introduced as one of the driving instructors and his daughter jumped into his arms. A heartfelt moment for the Lieutenant and his family who had not seen each other in over 7 months.

In Remembrance

Raymond Alan Hofman, Charter Member, 08-RayHofman-1died February 18, 2014 at the age of 38 in a plane accident in Breckenridge, Texas. Ray was born June 20, 1975, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He graduated from Oak Park High School in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in 1993. Ray began his passion for the oil industry working as a roughneck with Red Hawk in Saskatchewan. His unique abilities were noticed by Packers Plus, which eventually brought him to Midland, Texas in May 2002. His talent, vision, and the support of those who believed in him led him to start Peak Completion Technologies in December 2003. His passion was not limited to entrepreneurship. Ray lived fast, as a racecar driver, a pilot, a cyclist, a horseman, a hunter, a musician, a photographer, a patriot, a competitor and a mentor. He was life. An avid collector, his largest collection of which he was most proud, were his friends and family.

Our deepest condolences are extended to Ray's family. He will be missed by his friends and by the staff at the Club.

Falb & Slusher emerge victorious in a Radical contest at Sebring

The PBOC 6-Hour "Race into the Night" 07-RadicalsatSebringevent at Sebring International Raceway was a smashing success for Charter Members John Falb and Todd Slusher, winners by a lap and a half over a field of 40 cars. Some of the rivals on the Florida track may have been expecting an easy victory due the make-up of their teams and the power and speed of their cars; however Falb and Slusher's Radical SR-3 1500, driven to perfection and supported by an expert race team, proved to be more than the competitors bargained for. Going up against the likes of Praga and Ligier was no easy task, as both cars are known for their high straightaway speeds and massive downforce design with extreme cornering ability. At the end of the day it was all Radical.

08-RadicalcheckeredIntothenightLeading the charge and setting the pole was Falb, followed up by Falb's tremendous start of the race in leading the pack into turn one and beyond at the green flag. Battling the track for hours in off- and on-again rain, 3-hours of daylight followed by 3-hours of darkness made the race all that much more challenging as the rain continued falling into the night, only letting up in the last hour of the contest. As the team progressed through the grueling competition it was a constant battle to stay at the front of the pack, falling behind at times after pit stops and yellow flags seemed to come up when the team was making a charge. With 1.5 hours to go the team with Falb at the helm was able to recapture the lead and hold on to it from there; however, not without high drama. With only 40 minutes left in the race and Slusher at the wheel suddenly all headlights went out, save two small LED's on the hood. Luckily, the quick thinking of crew chief Jeff Shafer got Slusher the critical information needed to get the lights re-started after 10+ minutes of driving in the dark. Once the lights were working properly it was a mad dash to finish as the fast approaching Ligier and Praga could smell blood in the water. Fortunately it was Slusher taking the checkered flag well ahead of P2 with a lap and half to spare.

The team was ecstatic with the victory as 09-ToddJohnPodiumatSebring-1it was a first for all involved, and even sweeter for the Radical West crew who had astonished everyone by changing engines and transmissions in record-setting time in order to get the car race-ready earlier in the day. Falb and Slusher commended the team, saying "This was indeed an outstanding effort, and we send out a big thank you to the Spring Mountain Race Club, the incredible race crew, John Morris, Ari Straus and all the membership for their support and well wishes in the team's effort to bring home the victory!"

In Memoriam - Bob Durso

10-BobDursoWe regret to report the death of Club Spring Mountain Member Robert A. "Bob" Durso, 62, of Milton Mills, who passed on Sunday, January 26, 2014. Bob was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts, April 3, 1951, and later lived in Kingston where he was a volunteer firefighter and paramedic. Bob served for a period of five years as a New Hampshire State Trooper. He had many interests, including racing his Corvettes, playing poker (he was a professional player) in Las Vegas and he enjoyed traveling in his motor coach in Alaska with his dogs Geno and Vinny. Bob's latest venture was owning and operating Jug Hill Stables in Milton Mills that brought him much enjoyment. Bob lived his life to the fullest and was a very generous man who will be missed by all who knew him.
