Ben Keating's Dodge Viper ACR-X – Click above for high-res image gallery

Just after Dodge ended production of the current generation Viper, the newest iteration hit the track in anger at Virginia International Raceway. Ben Keating led the first race on Saturday from flag to flag with a Viper ACR-X wearing an almost identical livery to the BMW M3 GT2 art car that competed at Le Mans last month. However, Keating clearly had much better luck than the colorful German car.

Just because no one got past Keating, it doesn't mean he ran away with the race. Jeff Courtney was less than a second behind the winner as they crossed the finish line. The final podium spot went to Ryan Schmisk who came up from last place on the grid.
