Topic: Another Team needs an arrive and drive for NCM

We are a team heading to our third race since October. We're still a 3 person team and the A&D we've had the past two races won't be able to make it all the way out to Kentucky.

We have an 88 T-bird running a 5.0 L.O. through a T5 manual pushing a theoretical 155 HP at something like 8 gallons per 90 min stint. (after which it starts to loose fuel pressure in turns) It has been converted to 4 wheel disks off an SN-95 Mustang and we tend to get a full weekend plus out of a set of pads.

Our goal is having the car not brake, we were B class the past two races and ended up square in the middle of B at the end of Sunday. We don't rush refueling or driver changes because that would require being in shape. Which speaking of, we have a pretty good sized Ultrashield containment seat so can take folks up to around a 50" waist.

Last run of the Original Thunderbird Wine theme! (probably)

Mentioning a Lemons team brings booze an bacon is kind of like mentioning we bring tires.

Re: Another Team needs an arrive and drive for NCM

Will you consider a stint or two instead of one guy?  We are running 5 and one is a track whore...another might want to drive somethin faster than the dustbuster for a stint.

Re: Another Team needs an arrive and drive for NCM

That I'm not sure. Our primary need is to spread out costs. So we would still need someone on regestration. That would need to be a whole team kinda question.

Re: Another Team needs an arrive and drive for NCM

I am said track whore. I can register with your team and save udo extra driver costs. I'm willing to do full duties with you and a stint with udo if you can work with me on the logistics. I've done 4 stints in a race before no problem.

Re: Another Team needs an arrive and drive for NCM

Despite blowing his own car up on a regular basis, Owen is pretty darned respectful of other peoples' equipment.  He does drive about at 7.5-/10ths all the time but avoids contact and mostly watches the gauges.  I would say he is better than the average A&D....just do not offer to let him drive your spare car for weekend as it will catch fire.

Re: Another Team needs an arrive and drive for NCM

I think we may be able to make that work. Other than the $350 to Lemons that you just pay to them trough the system the team is looking for $450 for the seat. Let me know!

Re: Another Team needs an arrive and drive for NCM

Do you have 6 drivers, or are you planning to have 6?
We are looking to register an additional driver for our team....through another team's registration, since we have maxed out at 6 already.
If you do not have the full 6....would you be willing to register one of our guys through your team as driver?
We will pay the costs....and offer you bourbon or beer too.

Re: Another Team needs an arrive and drive for NCM

We have 3 drivers for one car.
