Whoa! Sorry I haven't revisited this post in awhile. When I first posted it, it didn't get any responses right off, so I kind of wrote it off.
To answer some questions, we are still in it. Car is a little farther along. Still looking for that 4th or 5th team member. We were prepared for just the 3 of us to go at it at first if our (almost) nonexistent recruiting efforts didn't pan out. We've altered our plan a little. I think we are going to bow out of the Dec Chump race because we lack track experience and the car has yet to be on a track. Not to mention that race is the southeast Championship for them so the cars all look stupid fast. We didn't want to fork over that kind of cheddar to spend the weekend anxiously looking in the rearview mirror. We've decided to spend that entry fee taking the car to track days between now and the next Barber's Lemons race (Feb?). That said, we'd welcome anyone that said they were interested to come hang out with us on a work day, track day, or even pay your own driver fee and take the car for a spin on a track day.
All of your responses look like they have potential. We're highly interested in anyone who's willing to pay a stakeholder's share, but we'd take arrive and drives as well. You can IM me for more details if interested. We'll get the dollar figures out of the way. We're not overly concerned with your ability to participate on wrench days if travel is an issue. I'm the defacto engineer/crewchief and pretty much have it covered with some assistance from the other 2 local guys. That said, Tuscaloosa isn't far away and neither is Mobile - by the way, that's my hometown. Went to Davidson High School and got my engineering degree from South Alabama - Go Jags!
To answer the most important of your questions - Alabama fans. We'll accept Auburn fans as teammates as long as you never mention Auburn, never wear their colors, and never say anything bad about Nick Saban. That man's a national treasure. Seriously though, I'm a Bama fan, one's a Georia Tech guy (he get's laughed at alot), and one is kind of indifferent.
Well this ended up longer than I anticipated (damn whiskey and chicken biscuits!). Short version: still interested; you all look like potential matches; teammates and A&Ds both welcome, IM me if you're serious about it; and Roll TIde!
