Topic: CMP Spring 2017 - Who's Racin', Whatcha Bringin', & Who's Cookin'?

Since The Book of Faces decided that my screen name was not my real name, and demanded ID, I've been off of that particular brand of social media.  It looks like the poor LeMons forum has been a bit neglected since the Borg has taken over.  But let's see who's left here. 

Tunachuckers will be back at CMP for their first (and possibly only) race of 2017.  Bringing the LTD Landau out of her winter slumber to once again whip her hard and put her away drenched.

Duff Beer will be there with the triumphant return to CMP of "Sparky", the terrible electric car.

Now with 50% less slowness and blowuppiness!

So far, we've got a mid-seventies land yacht, a 70's Japanese sports car, and a 1980's electric car. 

If the rest of the field were extrapolated from this data set, this would be the most awesome LeMons race, ever!

Add a Korean eco box to that list. If I can get the engine to stop over heating, I may have time to put some more AstroTurf back on the AstroTurf covered Kia. Either way we will be there.

I like where this is going.

This will be our first race in Lemons. After 2 years of working on the car off and on, the No MA'AM racing team will be driving a Ford Contour if the transmissions will last.

Is it an automatic?

I may come out in spectator form only, or may try and snag a ride with somebody just have to wait and see what the car is like when I get back from RA next month.

Team low dollar escorts will be there for our first lemons race in our super dooper Escort GT converted from a circle track car and being made to turn right?

When I saw "low dollar escorts", I naturally assumed that you meant the female variety, often found on street corners.

Maybe the team is actually composed of reasonably priced prostitutes who chose an Escort as a play on words? Even if that's not the case, then that's how I'm going to imagine it in my head.

That may or may not have something to do with our team theme.

Re: CMP Spring 2017 - Who's Racin', Whatcha Bringin', & Who's Cookin'?

Duff Beer is going to need some help on Sunday.

We have a stunt that we'd like to try and there are only four of us. Logistically I need two more people. I'm scheduling it during quiet hour because we won't be doing anything else then, so I need two helpers from 10:30-11:45. Nothing strenuous or dangerous will be involved, and nothing offensive or that will get you fired from your job or arrested, but I will need you there for the entire 1.25 hours and you can't wander off. You can also remain fully clothed, or as fully clothed as you are comfortable being. We will be happy to feed you, give you money or whatever else we have laying around (a dayglo yellow bust of Nicola Tesla?), or just let you be our friends, but you have to be at our paddock  at 10:30 and help us until 11:45 at the latest. We may let you go early, but plan on 10:30 to 11:45. If this works, then you will be busy for that entire time.

If anyone is interested in this sketchy request, then let me know. I can promise that you will see something that you have not seen before, and that it will probably make you laugh.

Thanks,
Roger

Re: CMP Spring 2017 - Who's Racin', Whatcha Bringin', & Who's Cookin'?

BumbleBees will be there. Working hard to move to a new chassis. After five years of 3 or 4 races a year on the Bee the move is overdue. Can't believe the number of potential catastrophic failures I uncovered in this move. Put the cage in the new chassis over the winter break and started moving / combining systems right after Barber.

Craig is on the road right now so I don't know if he and Curt are cooking BBQ for the paddock on Saturday night. He will be back next week and I will ask him to post.

Gs motorsports 99 red monte carlo is or will be trying to make laps.

Re: CMP Spring 2017 - Who's Racin', Whatcha Bringin', & Who's Cookin'?

Terminally Confused will be there with the DelSol.  We are doing some ride sharing with the Duff guys since EV racing isn't great for seat time.

I suspect we are cooking pork BBQ, but I haven't had Curt confirm yet.  He has a job that actually makes him work these days...

Apparently my name is really "Craigers".  Who knew?
We might be yellow, but at least we are slow
I'm a WINNER!

Re: CMP Spring 2017 - Who's Racin', Whatcha Bringin', & Who's Cookin'?

Yep.  Definitely cooking.  Should be 4 Big Green Eggs worth of pork BBQ (I don't have an exact quantity yet).  We will put a call out for sides and whatnot shortly.
