The 2017 United States Touring Car Championship (USTCC) finally started for "Life's Good Racing!" June 17th and 18th at Sonoma Raceway.

I myself along with the entire "Life's Good Racing!" team have had a very busy 2016 and time sure flew by.

Long Weekend, Great Results!


Wow! "Life's Good Racing!" just completed a very successful weekend of racing at Miller Motorsports Park. It started with a full day Friday of testing for our drivers as they got used to the East Track configuration which non of us had run before. The boys got up to speed fast and we made hardly any adjustments to all three cars! I had a chance to calculate fuel consumption so the boys didn't star...

This last weekend I was at Laguna Seca helping LGR team member and customer Shannon F...
