Topic: wrench/future driver looking for a team around Louisville KY
Hello Lemons World,
I live in New Albany, IN. I'm looking for a team in the area to help as a wrench in the short term and eventually work my way into a driver position.
-12yrs experience in facilities/industrial maintenance, seven of those as a manager. So I can rig the hell out of something in a hurry and fix it
right when there's time which seems Lemons appropriate.
-a few months experience as a mechanic for Skip Barber. This was over the winter in Sebring about 7 years ago.
-worked at a drag race chassis shop for about a year. Bent, notched, and welded many tubes, but didn't get to do a full cage by myself.
-was on UofL's FSAE team for a year for back in 02-03. Learned to use a vertical mill and lathe in case that might come in handy.
-worked on many hotrods, drag cars, road racers, POS's, and flat out junk like my daily drivers usually are. Only once in my life have I taken a
vehicle to a mechanic and that was for a front end alignment after i installed a new tie rod/drag link. Couldn't get it close enough with a tape
-been welding and fabricating since I was 16 and I'm 35 now. I have my own mig and tig machines, plasma cutter and various fab and regular
mechanic tools. i own a legit tube bender with 1 3/4" and 1" dies. All could be at our teams's disposal once we've earned one another's trust.
Nearly all of my daily drivers have been stick shifts. I'm currently single so I can dedicate a fair amount of time when I'm not working or have my daughter.
I've done a few autocrosses but have zero experience as a driver road racing and would like to change that this year.
Holler at me if ya think I could help ya.
