Racing History:  
Our first year we came in second in the series, and seventh in the nationals, (bob and I shared a car that year)  Our second year we got another car #11 so we could both race.  The #14 car won the championship that year, and the #11 car which only ran about 1/3 of the races came in fourth.  The number #11 took fourth at the Nationals in Las Vegas.
Last year Bryan Dobyns (East Coast Champ) and I ran the #11 and racked up enough points to win the championship by eight points!  The #14 car came in third.
We were the first team ever to sign up for the 1st annual running of the 25 Hr. Enduro at Thunder Hill and finished the race.  That was a proud moment!  We ran again in 2004 and made the podium in class despite an number of challenges.
We now have three cars, and haven't decided what we will do with the third car (either make it strictly an enduro car, or may field all three in the spec series)
Why did you join the series?
This series is a blast, and the racing is affordable! One engine usually last you all year or more and the series keeps all the cars competitive with the spec rules.  The focus is on the drivers capabilities..  The people involved are simply a great group to go racing with and have some fun.  My brother and I get to hang out all weekend together, laugh and have good times with all the other racers.   We all usually pit together and work on each others cars, to keep everyone on the track.
