The final race in this story line is "Macdermid's Mile" and it can be a serious pain mainly because you are forced to use his junky old 1973 Porsche and you cannot mod it. I tried this race many, many times and almost gave up. When I finally beat it I did it with 15+ seconds to spare because I changed up my driving style. Here's what I did -

E-Brake cn_X around tight corners and immediately use NOS to get going again. Using cn_LT to slow down for turns costs a ton of time!!

Constantly use NOS. It refills pretty quick. If your NOS meter is ever full after the start of the race you're doing it wrong.

If you crash, start over. Don't waste time finishing the race.

This one is if nothing else works for you. Try turning off the sound. It makes you a lot calmer I found, and that can certainly help.

Using the E-Brake cn_X going around turns if BY FAR the biggest help in shaving off seconds. Good luck!!
