Topic: Western Chicago Suburbs - Help Wanted
Consider this an exploratory effort into how LeMons and weekly racing might crossover.
I am a part-time dirt track racer and part-time LeMons racer. I live in Elburn, IL; close to DeKalb, Geneva, Aurora, St. Charles, Batavia but not much else.
I'm looking for reliable, close-by help to work with me in the garage with the dirt track car. A typical between-race service includes unloading the car, a car wash, pressure-washing the tires, going over the mechanicals with wrenches to make sure nothing has loosened, grinding tires, oil change, spark plug change, chassis lube...
If you're able to help out, I'd also invite you to ride down to the track (Fairbury Speedway) on a Saturday night when I'm racing. (Next planned race is 6/16, then 6/30.)
In another year or two, I'm hoping to start building a LeMon car, too. Though right now I'm content to do Arrive & Drives. One of the big reasons I haven't more seriously considered my own LeMons car is the lack of similarly minded individuals. I can't scrape up a reliable garage buddy out where I live, let alone three other guys with time, money and talent to run a LeMons race.
I'll be working in the garage tomorrow morning, then heading down to Autobahn with my son to take in a couple hours of LeMons racing. Next Wednesday evening I'm planning on washing the dirt car then Saturday morning, the 16th, I'll grind the four tires I'm going to run that night.
There's beer in the garage fridge and classic/alternative rock on the garage stereo.
Send me a message if you're local and interested in helping.
