Racing is life...
...everything before and after is just waiting

We've always been race fans, but when Steve Mc..er ehem...Michael Delaney said that in LeMans (the best movie ever made by the way) we've never been able to fully relate as much as right now. We just want to get to the track so....so bad. Most of the time is spent sitting in the corner shaking in a fetal position, asking over and over again, "How about now??". The answer is always "stop asking, finish your brisket". So there we have it, Racing = Life in nearly all situations. But in between all that there is some real planning, and we've added two events.
- April 17/18/19/20 "The Cure for Gingervitis" Gingerman Raceway, South Haven WI. The Carbeque returns to Gingmerman, with a meaty vendetta. We left our first race there with nothing more than some electrical problems and some stank in our engine hole, when it didn't achieve the temperatures we needed to cook. This time, the Road America dream team is back together, the bbqbox v2.1 is operational, and we are going to attempt a..pfttfhththt...attempt a....pfttahehetft.... Excuse me. Attempt a class win, there I said it. That means faster pit stops, and consistency. Willy, Dave...we are glad to see you guys come back!
- June 13/14/15/16 "Capitol Offense" Summit Point Motorsports Park, Summit Point, WV. Not a whole lot to say about this yet, other than I don't know what the hell we are thinking. We will probably be towing the 'Q behind a minivan. For like....14hrs. But, more importantly, this race track as a Nurburgring style carousel.
More details coming soon...and hopefully one more date.
