Thank You – Thank You

      3 Comments

Now that the 2015 race season is over for “Life’s Good Racing!” and our very own Beau Borders won the United States Touring Car Championship in the #12 BMW M3…………I must say thank you so very much to all the team crew members, drivers and team owner Karl Chicca for letting me take part as a member of one of the top professional road racing teams on the West Coast! ( In USTCC Touring Car Beau finished first in the #12 M3, Mauricio Lastres and Michael Whelden shared the #10 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart and finished fourth, Karl Chicca and Justin Crickenberger in the #11 M3 finished fifth over all and our team manager Dave Brown managed to finish third in the GT class while on a limited schedule driving our #96 5th Gen Chevy Camaro!)

We are a small team but very capable of doing large things! Like bringing a total of three cars all the way to Miller Motorsports Park in Salt Lake City to compete in round two of this years USTCC series and finishing 1st, second and fourth! And we are all about family and having a good time like when we visited Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for rounds three and four and my father, Jerry Pittenger aged 85 was an honorary crew member and we had Justin Crickenberger’s three year old daughter Madison who is our newest and youngest “pit poppy”! Madison and her mom Susan are with us in the paddock during race weekends when Justin is driving the #11 M3 and it is always entertaining to say the least.

We also have held a handful off jamb sessions on race weekend Saturday nights with senior crew member Uncle Mike Brown’s awesome band. We have had so much fun on those Saturday nights I’m looking forward to them again for next year and I can guarantee they should not be missed.

Please keep in mind that our race shop in Livermore is open through the winter “off season” and we are actively working on customer cars as well as updating our current stable of LGR race cars. We also have cars for rent if you need one for an upcoming track day. We can provide you with a car and trackside support if needed. Just go to our main page and follow the links to contact us.FlyerLGR
