Post Card from the PWC, SRO, Global MX-5 Cup & Porsche GT3 Trophy Paddock at Laguna Seca

If the title suggests this was a busy event… you best believe it was! Four days of non stop action… which was a complete and total difference compared to last year where PWC ran it’s season finale alone without any support groups. What was particularly different this year was the debut of the SRO created […]

Post Card from PWC Grand Prix of Lime Rock

Greetings from an amazing first day of the PWC at LRP. I love this track. I love this series. I love this assignment. This is my first time since last year working as a back-up starer for a pro event (or for any event period) and it just so happens that last year it was […]

Post Card from Alabama Grand Prix and MX-5 Cup Season Opener at Barber

Greetings from one of the prettiest racetracks in the United Sates! I took advantage of an amazing opportunity again to work with Flagging by Faynisha crew for the Honda INDY Grand Prix of Alabama where the Global  MX-5 Cup is making it’s season debut under a brand new sanctioning body: IndyCar… Why the fuck would […]

Why Is Everyone Ditching SCCA Pro Racing? First Global MX-5 Cup in Favor of IndyCar and Now Pirelli World Challenge to USAC

For those of you reading this blog post looking for some in-depth analysis or insider information as to why everyone is ditching SCCA Pro racing, go look elsewhere. This post will express my opinion on the matter which is just that, an opinion. It is based on my personal experience of a mere marshal volunteering […]

New Track, New Role! Working GT Challenge at VIR as Pit Fire Marshal

Another enjoyable experience working a new role as a Pit Fire Marshal at Virginia International Raceway for IMSA GT Challenge. I was pretty excited to take advantage of an opportunity that presented itself to work a track where I had previously only been rejected to work as a flagger… I had a slight concern how […]

Woo Hoo! I got to Flag at VIRginia International Raceway Leading into the Oak Tree Turn

I’m going to chalk this one up as an accomplishment. It’s been a while since I had my mind set on volunteering one of the big pro events at VIR… but lo and behold none of the contacts I reached out to were willing to help… in fact, people told me it was impossible to […]

Post Card from Global MX-5 Cup Round at VIR: Virginia Int’l Raceway

My plans for this weekend were to check out the Millionth Miata Tour visiting the East Coast… my options were to go to Wayne, NJ for the NYC stop of the tour where the car would visit Wayne Mazda dealership or if that failed I could go to the Philadelphia stop where the tour would […]

Post Card from Michelin GT Challenge at VIRginia International Raceway

I’m not sure if there’s an event in the US I wanted to do more than the IMSA race at VIR… now I’ve gone and done it! And I’m really proud of the opportunity I had to participate in this amazing event at a really fantastic facility. I went from being treated like a reject […]

Petit Le Mans Marshal Invitation, Road Atlanta September 27 – October 1, 2016

Just got two invites for the most important races of the year (I think) on the American Racing Calendar. I’ll make two posts to share the invites with anyone who could be interested. My advice, do both! Petit Le Mans is one of the coolest events there is on US soil. It is season finale of […]

Global Mazda MX-5 Cup Race at Watkins Glen International May 2016

Once I saw the schedule for the brand spanking new Global Mazda MX-5 Cup I quickly signed up to marshal it. Immediately following the debut at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last week, the Series tracked across the country to Upstate New York for their second race of the season at Watkins Glen playing a support role […]
