Topic: Driver/wrench looking for team for Buttonwillow or Sonoma races

Driver looking for a team for the September Buttonwillow race or the December Sonoma race. 

20 years of track driving experience, racing for the last 6 years. I've done all the wrenching on my cars and am very kind on equipment. Happy to bring tools to the race as well. Have 3 regional titles with NASA and a podium finish at the national championships.

Re: Driver/wrench looking for team for Buttonwillow or Sonoma races

Hello,
im looking to do a couple races. i have a 1998 Honda civic cx. i have title despite owing 500 in back fees to the state.. it was rear ended 2 years ago but even after sitting all this time it still cranks up and will drive straight at highway speeds. i have no track exp. but im a good driver and know enough about machines to be dangerous...jk lol. i have basic tools also. Before i was rear ended i spent about 1800$ on lowering the car with good parts put in a new clutch with a rebuild 5 speed new cv axels basically from the wheels up its good just ugly. it will need a timing belt and water pump serviced if its gonna be a good 24 hour car. but i actually have those parts. along with rear brakes. (fronts are freshly done with drilled rotors and will last the race season). has CEL but im guessing its emissions related since it drives fine just idles a little high on cold starts. i just moved to Pensacola FL but my folks live in American canyon and the car lives there too... i putt too much time into the thing and i hate to see it go to the pick and pull. im not swimming in cash but have enough resources where this could be fun and still have a chance to collect the purse if we play our cards right.

Are you thinking of the Buttonwillow or Sonoma race? And I'm assuming you'll come back to drive? I'm in Southern California, so I don't think I would be help with car prep in advance, more on-site wrenching as needed.

Sent you a forum email. We have a spot open for Buttonwillow, possibly also Sonoma in December.
