Fathers Day Weekend SCCA Club Racing at Lime Rock

To be honest I’ve given up on Club Racing this season… But since I still hold a valid SCCA license and my friend Jamie offered to let me work on the Starter stand with him, I jumped on the opportunity! Boy am I glad I did. I came for the Miata’s, but stayed for all […]

Post Card from the Dummy Grid at Memorial Day PWC LRP Grand Prix

Alabama Grand Prix (IndyCar) the Debrief

I had an incredible time at this year’s Alabama Grand Prix. Not really much to say other than everything about this trip has been awesome. Under the circumstances I had an absolutely awesome event!

MX-5 Cup Season Opener at Indy Alabama Grand Prix Road Trip in my Miata

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.
