Grand-Am pics from Homestead

Random infield pics. The new Turner BMW sounds fantastic... just not very fast... yet.

Our cars before the start. Car 138 qualified 8th and finished 6th out of 30 cars. Not bad! Car 48 missed qualifying due to engine problems and had to start last, but finished 15. It was a good weekend.

What does the gig entail? Like how long are you away, how often and do they cover all of your expenses?

I went to almost every race with them last year. It'll probably be less this year as I hope to start racing myself.
When in the garage/paddock, my responsibilities usually include tires/wheels, changing brake pads/rotors, minor repairs, setting up the fuel rig in the pits, filling up the cars... During practice I will take tire pressures and temps. During the race I am the fuel guy.
We can be away for as long as a week or 3-4 days, depending on how far the track is.
Expenses are covered.

Most of the time it's very hard work, but I love it. For the second year in a row I got to watch 24 hours of Daytona from ANYWHERE I wanted, including the pits. You get to meet a lot of interesting racing people, shoot the shit with some very famous drivers... pretty cool stuff.
I'll sure have some stories for the grandkids
