    2019 Official Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta 14-Hour

    You show every sign of being a Virginia Tech grad. Since the beginning of time, ChampCar has made event supplementals that list the event schedule. https://champcar.org/register/supplementalrules/368.pdf Page 2 of 8...

    Flags - https://champcar.org/mainweb/pdf/Flags-2019.pdf They should read the rules. there are a lot of things in there that all racers need to know. Not just car building. https://champcar.org/mainweb/pdf/2019ChampCarBCCR.pdf

    Fuel cell rule change

    Despite what mike or anyone else said prior to yesterday, the rule book is in play and is the official word. All fuel components must be separated from the passenger compartment by a firewall. The fuel filler. no matter the material, must be separated by a metal firewall.

    Ordering the New Number Panels

    seriously. we told people where to put the decals the past year. we even made it easy making the sponsor decals one big decal. But we still found them cutting them out and sticking them everywhere except within the spot the instructions said. I even had people come up to me and say that tech told them they could put them anywhere. well... no more. When the sponsors come up to me on Tuesday after the race and say, hey, I saw all your pictures and video, I love the spot they had my decals... I can feel good that I am not getting yelled at like last year when they find out that half the field did not display the decals properly or did not have them on the car. I love those emails.. Hey Bill, dod you have pictures from last weeks event of cars on the track I can use for social media? I go to get them and everyone one of them is missing a decal, even the cars that I KNOW I handed them one to put on the car. That's why. And NASCAR is pretty strict. Teams have to get their themes approved before they are printed on the wrap. And they have a very specific location for every since required decal.

    2019 Official Sonoma Raceway Double-7

    We have 85 cars for Road Atlanta. 22 for the tiny VIR south track. 20 for Sonoma. We are doing this race no matter how many show. I purchased my plane ticket and rental car. I am coming to this race. I am visiting my family in Vallejo. How can we increase the numbers here?
