Well this weekend (November 14th & 15th,) is the last US Touring Car Championship race of the season and also the last scheduled track event of the year for the “Life’s Good Racing!” team. We will be running this weekend with at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows CA with the BMW Club on the 3 mile course.
We enter this weekend’s race with Beau Borders in the #12 BMW M3 leading by 40 points over our team car in second the #11 M3 being driven by team owner Karl Chicca. 2014 USTCC champion Gary Sheehan in the #33 GoGo Gear Hyundai Genesis is 16 points behind Karl in third and will be stalking both of our M3’s for sure.
If it’s a rainy day for Sunday’s final race, my money for a solid finish will be Mauricio Lastres, fourth in points, in our #10 “Weapon of Massive Traction” all wheel drive Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart.
For me it’s always a long cold winter once the race season finishes. I will start thinking about the 2016 race season on my drive back from the race track this Sunday evening! (Yes, I’m a fanatic and love being at the track!) I’m just so passionate about auto racing and road racing in particular I start a countdown in my head for the start of the 24 Hours of Daytona in February!
I’ve had so much fun this year at the races hanging out with the crew and drivers. We are all close friends and the comradery is amazing! I love these guys. They are truly great friends. I want to thank all our drivers and team owner Karl Chicca for letting me be part of something special….!
Now on to Thunderhill
