Jason Parent purchased his 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z-28 from us here at DreamMakers Automotive in the summer of 2014. DreamMakers Automotive has a unique and awesome agreement set up with the crew over at Putnam Park Road Course in Indianapolis. Certain cars purchased through us are eligible for a free track day down at the raceway, courtesy of a combined effort between the raceway, and DMA.
The Track Day:
On Thursday, April 30th, DMA helped create the experience of a lifetime for Mr. Parent and his Z-28 by taking him down to the Putnam Park Road Course for his private, free track day! The DMA crew loaded up the stunning all black Z-28 on the night prior, making sure they had everything they would need for a flawless track day. Jason met at DMA at 6 am on Thursday morning, and set off for Indianapolis.
After arriving, Jason had at least 4 hours of actual track time with a paid race instructor. This was Jason’s first time on the track, and most first time racers average near a 1:50 lap time. Once instructed, Jason and his Z-28 ran an average lap time of 1:30! How awesome is that? To give you more perspective of what an accomplishment that was, there was also a 2015 Porsche GT3 on the track that day, and the owner of that car is a weekly racer at Putnam. He was averaging 1:20 lap times! Jason didn’t do too bad for his first time!
After the amazing day on the track, Jason and Nate loaded up and returned home by 7 pm, calling it a very successful event! Although the pictures paint a pretty clear picture of the day’s events, Nate was able to capture this short video showing Jason in action, hitting 4th gear at about 130 mph!
