I think the @enginerd is sitting this one out, so I am not running at this race. I will be racing the full track later this year. I have only run the novice/24 hours of Lemons/Chump course so far. I plan to be very respectful of the kink.

I was going to come and volunteer, but a driver of mine wants to do Mid Ohio on Monday so I will be staying home getting ready for that race on the Monday.  I love Road America!  I always make sure I do that track one time a year.  I will be there in the fall for the Chumpionship.

The 3rd Gear Pulls CRX is getting a major overall for this round. We are hoping to finally go the weekend without a hitch. We have been racing for two years and only have had time for all the Road America races. Soon to add more tracks to our belt. But we are super excited for this one. Good luck to all.

We'll miss you Crank Yankers! While we don't often interact with you guys at the events, you've earned our respect and trust on the track. You have a great group of drivers and we'll miss having you guys at the track.

Conundrum... But maybe we won't miss getting passed by you guys so often. :)

Definitely looking forward to the second run of the Purple Neon. Last fall was our first run in chumpcar and a big learning experience.

Now if I can just figure out how to but the car back together by April...:D

Now you know that about as bad of reason as I have heard! If you would just start early on the race prep you could do both ya wimp.

 

You will be sorely missed and have fun at Mid Ohio, but you are still lame. :-)

Maybe you all can make it back in the fall and run with us again.  We appreciate the kind words and look forward to racing against you again soon.

Hmm....that is a good idea to come and race at Road America, do Mid-Ohio prep in impound then load up and head to Mid-Ohio for a Monday race.  That would be a lot of racing!

Team Udder Chaos #55 is planning on joining the fun, taking the Dodge Neon entries to a total of at least 5.  Plenty to get put back together between now and then, but nothing scary.

Does anyone know how old/inaccurate the iRacing scan is for this track?  (the one for VIR is pretty old and makes it less useful for getting visual reference points)

I personally think Iracing version for Road America is pretty accurate.

The car started this weekend, and was reportedly used to terrorize the neighbors for a brief time with an open header.  Now we're getting excited, cant wait to head north in about 46 days.

I can only assume that if you are bringing the miata to the big track that it now has a motor swap.

It does now, but we ran it last year with the stock 1.6 and had a lot of fun from 5 to the bend and Canada corner to the top of 14.  Hoping to be more competitive on the rest of the track now!

So, it appears that JD Christianson, Hotchkiss, and 55mini are teammates?

Forgive me if I'm kind of slow - Wish I would have taken the time to meet you guys at Gingerman or (MIS) the last year or 2.

The Iowa gang - new rivals to the Alabama gang in NASCAR!  ^_^
