What an incredible event! My first HSR Historics err… Classic 24h of Daytona and it’s been a hell of a ride.

Amazing event!!! And I can’t believe they let me work the entire 30+ hours Saturday/Sunday… great stuff!
For my last event of 2017 Racing Season I signed up to volunteer the HSR Classic 24 Hours of Daytona “presented by IMSA”… cheapest way to get to Florida it seemed was to drive down on one of the Hertz one-way rentals for $4.99 per day and fly back. So I did, and of course the goal along the way was to stop at Dixie Pig in Rock Hill, South Carolina for their amazing pig wings, but after seeing all the Miata’s driving around the area I figured there’s got to be a shop somewhere locally specializing in these little cars.
So I paid a visit to Panic Motorsports in Columbia, South Carolina
Very interesting place with a lot of cool projects going on. And since people always post on facebook looking for Miata car parts, I snuck a few shots of their Miata graveyard for the bone pickers out there… Need parts? Call Panic Motorsports… some pix:
This Mazdaspeed is for sale!
Thanks for the license plate cover!
See you at the races…
