As I shared in my last update, we lost the motor in our Life’s Good Racing!TM Camaro during our last race weekend at Auto Club Speedway. I am happy to share that the motor has been rebuilt; Charles has installed it in the car; and the car has already been tested this last weekend at Thunderhill Raceway outside of Willows in Northern California. We did not have time to dyno test in advance of that weekend event, however the motor felt strong. We should be well on our way in that department in our preparations for the all-important NASA National Championships at Miller Motorsports Park just around the corner in September.
This will be the second such National Championship event that we attend as Life’s Good Racing!TM In case you weren’t tuned in this time last year, we had a great showing during that event. We earned the pole position in the championship race by winning two of the qualifying races and took a respectable second place in the Championship race in CMC2. We even gleaned some webcast TV coverage on SpeedCastTV.com as Dave Brown sliced his way through a crowded field with a malfunctioning transmission!
This year, we will be competing in two series, CMC2 and PTB! Our CMC2 Championship race will be Saturday afternoon and the PTB Championships will be held Sunday afternoon. These races will cap off three busy days including a test and tune day on Wednesday, followed by two days of qualifying races Thursday and Friday, the results of which establish the grid for the Championship events. We expect the Championships to most likely be webcast again. I will post updates on that subject as more details become available.
As you can see above, we will be sporting a completely new look at the Championship event with the help of Vital-Signs. We have a brand new car wrap, enabled by Vital-Signs, and designed by the Life’s Good Racing!TM team’s graphic design artist, Claudia Castillo. The wrap will not only enable the car to brightly outshine others in the crowded fields, but will also proudly display the logos of our key contributing sponsors, Hawk Performance, AIP Electronics and ClutchMasters. Additionally, we will also be highlighting our recently added sponsor, the renowned LED technology company, Bridgelux.
More to come!
