Topic: Noob Team seeking members for the Minneapolis 500
So we had a team and naturally commitment has dissipated for a couple of members. I would like at least two if not 3 more members (2 would put us at 4 drivers, 3 people at 5). Currently we have a mostly untouched 2002 Ford Crown Victoria. Car has had the interior gutted but that is about it so far. I have been collecting parts as I find good deals. The cage will be ordered in the near future. We have a dedicated shop to work on the vehicle as well.
I need people that will be committed to seeing it through to the race in September both with the time and financial responsibilities. You don't have to be a master mechanic. I'm pretty well rounded and my dad is a a lifetime car guy with loads of "creative solution" experience. Neither of us have any experience actually road racing. I have done multiple experiences at Speed Vegas, but I know that's not at all the same. My dad was a drag racer back in the day. So you don't need to be experienced in that arena either. We just want a team of guys that want to go race and have a good time for now. we will worry about being competitive later. We are both really laid back and fun individuals, but be ready for relentless sarcasm.
If we cant get a whole team together by mid - July we wont be fielding this car for the September race. There is just too much work to do for a only a couple people working on it occasional weekends. If that happens I will try to find a seat with another team for that race but we will still continue to prep this car.
I am located in Wadena, MN and the car is in Aldrich, MN. We are just under an hour away from BIR (to the west) where the track is. I would prefer someone that is relatively close and can come work on the car a couple times a month.
