Stunning Stunt Man


As a stunt bike rider, Christian Pfeiffer craves flat asphalt surfaces. He found none of that in his recent trip to NASCAR land.

Before Sunday’s Sprint Cup race at Bristol Motor Speedway, Pfeiffer, a 37-year-old Red Bull-backed rider from Germany, braved the concrete high banks of Bristol on his modified BMW F800. He treated the towering grandstands to a variety of tricks and wheelies on the 36-degree banking.

The crowd, by its ovation, was obviously entertained — and that was after he worked the grounds of Thunder Valley in the days before the big show.

“It’s awesome. It’s very American,” Pfeiffer said of his first NASCAR experience. “The stadium is just terrific. I have no words. We have big soccer stadiums in Europe. But we have no big motorsports stadiums. Just an incredible experience for me to ride here. And to go in third gear through the banking … was (expletive) awesome.”

A day later, Pfeiffer made his way down the mountain to Mooresville, N.C. Most members of Red Bull Racing Team took a few minutes out of their busy day to watch Pfeiffer do his thing on the undulating surface outside the shop.

Well now that Vickers is locked in, we just gotta worry bout Skinner on friday (43 in owners, only 138 back from 35th). Hopefully they get it locked in before Pheniox when A.J. is back.

yea, the new membership is up...the heading just says 2007, but it's really the 2008 membership. I think you just click join now and you can get the renewal form

I don't think the new membership for Club V is up yet, It says to check back later.

It appears they are letting past members re-up first. I guess people who want to join but were not members previously will get the opportunity at a later date. Sucks!!

How do you renew the Club V membership? I keep getting a message that 2008 is not available yet.

If you are renewing and not joining for the first time, try to sign in to club v and then when it tells you your username does not match up, click on join now. It might say 2007 membership at the top of your browser, but it's the 2008 membership. Hope that helps!
