    Congratulations to Chuck McCormick who recently purchased a new 2018 Limited Edition Glacier White CTS-V on 11/07/2017 from Covert Cadillac, our V-Club sponsor in Austin.  Chuck's V is #108 of only 115 made by Cadillac.

    The Sales Rep was Jeff Perantoni, who Chuck characterized as "a dynamite sales pro and an overall great guy".  Chuck stated that everyone at Covert made the whole process a total pleasure and he is excited to have the pleasure of owning the first one sold in Austin!  Covert was allocated 2 Limited Edition models and the the 2nd sold in December. Since Cadillac has continued to include the complimentary trip to the Cadillac V-Performance Academy in Pahrump, Nevada, Chuck will be scheduling his trip soon!

    Chuck recommends that any V-Club member in Austin who is interested in checking out the new 2018 V’s ask for Jeff Perantoni.   Jeff  is extremely knowledgeable about the V-Series models!

    Chuck also mentioned that If you need service, the Cadillac V specialist to contact is Adam Deleon.  Adam has been Chuck's service rep since he purchased his first CTS-V in 2012 and has always provided exceptional service and support.

    The DFW Chapter of the Cadillac V-Club once again held it's annual holiday banquet at Boi 'Na Braza in Grapevine, Texas on Sunday evening, December 10.  The room was packed with over 90 attendees and the meal was once again fantastic... "all you can eat carved meet of your choice", huge salad bar and fantastic desserts capped off the dinner menu.

    After a round of trivia questions where the member with the successful answer received a prize, a drawing was held to determine the winner of the ticket package for two to any IMSA V-Corral event in 2018.  Misty Young was the lucky winner and her plan is to attend the upcoming Rolex 24-hour IMSA race in Daytona where the Action Express and Taylor Racing teams will be competing for Cadillac.

    All V-Club members who attended this holiday banquet along with the upcoming holiday banquet attendees in Houston, Austin and San Antonio will be entered in a random drawing to be held on Monday evening, December 18 at 7:00PM for a fully paid tuition trip (including meals and lodging) to attend the two day Cadillac V-Series Academy in Pahrump, Nevada. Airfare not included.  Value of trip is $3,100.00.

    Each eligible entry will be assigned a number from 1 to X where X is the total number entries.  The winner of the V-Performance Academy trip will be randomly selected via a "live feed" from our Cadillac V-Club Facebook page using an online random number generator.

    We very pleased to make two announcements, the first of which is the nomination approval and acceptance by Beverly Feaster as Director of the Austin Chapter. Beverly owns an awesome 9-second 1/4 Mile 2014 Silver CTS-V Coupe. Beverly is excited about the opportunity to meet more V owners and will be attending the upcoming joint Austin/San Antonio annual holiday banquet on December 16.  There are currently 28 members in the Austin Chapter and 33 members in the San Antonio Chapter which is led by James Corona.  Watch the V-Club event calendar for future events and activities which will be scheduled by Beverly for the Austin Chapter.   

    The second announcement is to welcome our newest sponsor who is located in Round Rock. Dedicated Motorsports Solutions (DMS) has recently joined the Cadillac V-Club as a Silver level sponsor. DMS has a long history of proving hard work pays off in the end. Originally founded in 2008, DMS was a part time operation primarily to share new parts that Matt Owen developed while creating his own builds, like his famous LS1 Swapped Lexus. It wouldn’t be until 2015 that Dedicated Motorsports would become a full-time operation when Matt departed his T1 position.   You can find out more info about DMS at www.dedicatedmotorsports.com .

    The Board of Directors has selected 3 year member Dustin Mohan as the Director of the DFW Chapter.  As a long term V-series owner (Dustin owned a V1 CTS-V, V2 CTS-V and now owns a V3 ATS-V) combined with the fact he is very active within the V-Club, Dustin is a perfect choice for his new leadership position. The DFW Chapter has experienced rapid growth as the result of previous outstanding Chapter Directors, Trey Krause and most recently Sean O'Rourke. Dustin is excited about the opportunity to serve.

    Dustin commented, "As all of you know, the V-series a passion of mine and one of the reasons that I feel that this is the right time to take on the responsibility of helping to grow the Cadillac V-Performance brand and the club in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  I have also been fortunate enough to form lifelong friendships as a direct result of my involvement in the V Club and take that very seriously enough to want to take on a leadership role."

    Check out Dustin's ATS-V Coupe on the Circuit of Americas track in Austin!

    Sewell Cadillac of Dallas hosted our monthly meeting for October where 75 members of the DFW Chapter received an surprise visit from 4 time Pirelli World Challenge Series champion Johnny O'Connell.   Johnny was also joined by Paulina Haan from the Cadillac V-Series Marketing team in New York and  Mirza Grebovic from the V-Series Engineering team in Detroit.  These Cadillac representatives provided an overview of the V-Series platform and communicated Cadillac's commitment to the V and the V-Club.

    The V-Club is fully committed to its partnership with Cadillac and 2017 will bring some exciting new benefits to our members.   We sincerely appreciate the endorsement and support from Cadillac and are proud to represent and promote the "V-Team".

    V-Club President Mike Franks also delivered a short presentation on the "first four years" of the club highlighting some of our key milestones and the demographics of the membership.  Mike also showed a "PDR" video of his recent "on-track" experience at the V-Performance Academy held at Spring Mountain Motorsports Resort in Pahrump, Nevada.  Mike drove both a 2017 ATS-V and CTS-V and said it was experience that was "bucket list worthy" for everyone to consider attending.
