  1. 60 car sellout at Gingerman, Michigan same weekend. Sorry.
  2. even better. Mike and I discussed and we changed the wording for the 2020 BCCR. minimum size only. still needs BOD approval.
  3. Calabogie is a must visit track. I have raced there twice and want to go back. I love that place. the people are awesome. the track is insane fun. I think it is up by the arctic circle too!
  4. and we are not even talking about spec tires. as long as they are 180tw or higher, they are good to run
  5. I purchased 3 sets of Dureza for each season we raced. We did about 8 to 10 races per year. 3 races worked fine. A set of Dunlops would easily last a 24 hour race on the MR2. and that was with all the wheels staying on the car. When we moved to 265/255 wide tires in 2012, well, that was the big game changer in how long they lasted.
  6. yes. It is. My wife asked what I would have done if I had got there and found out that it was a week later. I told her I would have gotten a rental car and done a track day at Gingerman, at on the beach. and maybe did a little fishing.
  7. https://champcar.org/register/events.php There are a few new events in 2020 that will be announced soon.

  12. Maximum entries is at 60. we have 4 openings left. if you are undecided, you should make your decision fast.
  13. For those that don't follow me on Facebook, well... I left for Gingerman yesterday. I got an hour into the 12 hour trip and that's when Tyler asked me why I was leaving a week early. Doh! I want to be at the race track sooo bad! updating the original post now with the email and pit assignments
  14. Tire Rack recently did an Extreme Performance Summer tire test - obviously, a segment of interest to the ChampCar crowd - with four tires: BFGoodrich g-Force Rival S1.5 Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R Dunlop Direzza ZIII Yokohama ADVAN A052 The full report and videos on each of the four tires is at the link below. https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp?ttid=242
  15. You will be missed. It was fun racing against you guys over the years!
  16. Indy. and I am just giving you my personal opinion from 10 years of racing with ChampCar. Not everyone has misbehaved. but the ones that did get into my car were for the most part experienced road racers from other series.
  17. Next time, call over a ChampCar pit boss or orange vested marshall. They will get it fixed.
  18. Dana tends to SMS text me, because he lives in 1990. Currently the one cell tower we have in my county is down. But Verizon says that they have not got any reports of downed towers. But then if everyone uses VZW and the tower is down, well, it's impossible to contact VZW. Which is what is happening. So... I will await contact from Sir Dana. @DuncanDana Please see above
  19. there have been just a handful of tracks that said they wanted the fuel to evap. and we watched it, as it evap'ed faster than the team could get over the wall. large spills though are very different. I think that is where we have to be careful with how we make the rules. It's probably best to leave it like it is.
  20. I know. I have been debating on how to bring this up. I am still collecting track info.
  21. I have been racing and involved with ChampCar for 10 years . It is HUGELY better than it was in the early days. Most of the issues came from experienced sprint racers who just have no clue how to handle cars with either less or more speed. Speed differential issues. They are so used to racing with cars of equal speed. That has always been my take.
  22. Actually... Most tracks want you to just let it evaporate, unless it is a huge amount of fuel. Use oil dry for oil. Using it for fuel just makes for an explosive mixture of oil dry that you end up tossing in a trashcan. pour water would be bad as that just spreads it and delays the evaporation
  23. That is a DIC move. Or something I would do. Don't be like Bill.
