Jack Pine Sprints 2010

Back from a great weekend at BIR. I had butterflies in my stomach watching the green flag drop on the 1st official SCCA race in over 10 years. I had four good races, 20 some cars in my heat, three in my class, ITA (Improved Touring A), had some really good play time battling others, especially the Miata's (to which I am now toughly convinced that Spec Miata drivers are all crazy!).   I got three 2nd place finishes, and a 3rd (due to a black flag cuz of noise).  I killed off two Kuhmo v710's, and other than that I didn't pick a tool up all weekend, the Neon did really well! Thanks to Dave Kapon who helped get the car ready for these past two races!

Oh btw...there is some sort of lame rule of 102db at the track, I didn't see it in the suplimental rules, I had never heard of that before, didn't happen at the NASA race, nor the Chump race.....oh and btw, that rule doesn't apparently apply to drag cars! :S

More on BIR July 4th weekend

Come to the races!
We are up to nearly 100 entries for the SCCA Jack Pine Sprint races at BIR. This is the first SCCA sanctioned races at BIR since 2001. Land O’ Lakes region is thrilled to be back racing again and it
shows - 2/3’s of the racers are from Minnesota. This is a “Quad” format regional race (2 races on Saturday and 2 races on Sunday). The schedule has 6 different race groups. We have
a large Spec Miata group forming as well as a Big Vintage race group. The other classes range from Spec Racer Ford to Gt Lite. A whole lot of variety.
If you have ever thought about racing this is a great weekend to see what SCCA is all about and talk to drivers and the BIR school representatives to see how simple it has become to get onto the track.

BIR also has the Show and Go drag races, fireworks, live music and even a car show. Admission is $20 per day.

We can still use more volunteers to stage the event. If you are planning on volunteering this weekend, please makes sure you register on motorsportsreg (www.scca-lol.org/bir-registration) or contact Jim
Gillen (jim(at)gillengroup(dot)com) or Kathy Gillen (kathy(at)gillengroup(dot)com) so we can get you on the list. If you aren't on the list, you may have to pay to get into the track.

We hope to see you there!
