Well...it's been a long road thus far.  Got amped , had team.  Bought car.  Team bailed, err 2x bailed, one said "maybe next year".  Put car back up for sale (I'm sure it's been seen on craig's)...then went to dinner with #2 who said "maybe next year" and talked through a plan.  I SOOOOOOOOO wanted to be ready for Sept in CO, but not likely.  However, after talking with #2 I think we have a plan.  Contract first, money second.  #2 has some potential team mates.  So this is where we are.  Car off the market and moving forward.  Can't think this is anything but NORMAL when it come to Lemons.  BTW - Team Name decided!!  It's rather good IMHO.  2022 Lemons!!  It's all I have at this point.

I will say it over and over...building the car is "easy", people are hard.

Almost no team believes us when we say, start with 6 teammates and hope to have two by the time that first checkered flag waves.  This is huge investment in time and money for no financial reward (like most hobbies) the likes of which few folks grasp until they are 6-12 months into it.

Stay the course...its worth it in the end.

Re: Am I dong this? Well...

Yup, before I got to the bottom of page 1, I had a feeling you'd be back to just you. 

Don't worry, it happens to almost everyione in Lemons.  My team was together.  Then, my brother went on the road for 3 years, driver #3 left to run a grand am team, and #4 had a pole skewer his leg ibn a fork lift aciident.

I found new friends.

Well, it DID inspire them to do something that ended up being kinda dumb didn't it?
