  1. I’m a free lancing mechanic/crew/ driver. I do maintenance on some of the local ( central Texas ) racecars and travel to different races to crew as well. If you’re in a bind for the weekend and need an extra or just A crew member to take care of the car so you can focus on racing than I’m your guy! Anything from taking care of pit stops to engine and tranny swaps in the middle of the race. Rates for crewing are pretty cheap and in most cases I can cover my traveling expenses since I do it mostly for the fun, I love being at the track! I will also wrench to race or for a discount to race. Message me on here or you can text me at 8322578795
  2. Hello everyone, I'm attempting to put together a team for NCM MOTORSPORTS PARK 8+7 Enduro (June 15-16) KY. We have a 95 Mustang GT that can hold corners well and has some balls! So far it's been at Harris Hill and MSR Houston and we're attempting to branch further out. Looking to get a group of guys out there that are eager to race all day and drink all night! If you're wanting to get some more seat time on the track without paying an arm and leg we're the guys to talk to! We have a stacker trailer(We also have room for sleeping in the stacker with AC), tools, some equipment that might fit so less rentals, radios, master tech. (who knows every inch of the car because he built the damn thing), and of course food and beer! Trying to get some solid guys locked down so we can guarantee to make it out there this year! PM me for details! God bless, Jakob Prater.

  4. Hello all, My name is Tommy Carothers from Ethos Motorsport. We are a startup team in the process of building a car. We have 2 drivers and 1 mechanic. We are looking for like-minded drivers or crew who want to share the team, car, DRIVING TIME and financial responsibilities equally. (You may even take the car to your own events if you so choose (With everyone in agreement) I have wheel to wheel and rally racing experience and dont mind teaching a newcomer through simulation or physical track time. We have a trailer and truck. To apply you must first meet these requirements: Be able to pay your equal share of racing costs Willing to learn and be "Ego-Less" in your training approach Be chill, we just really want seat time for the 2018 season which we are looking at as a R&D season. Be willing to help build the car. (Ill buy the beer and pizza, unless you are underage of course.) Not just looking for "Arriving and Driving" A shop or place to work on the car in the North Carolina area is a plus as we are working out of a apartment parking lot at this time. Everyone on board so far is paying equal parts. We plan on running any number of races (From one to all) on the east coast. If you think you meet the above requirements fill out form below: https://goo.gl/forms/pCbKpUdWQP0EKwWL2
  5. I've been interested in getting into racing in Chumps/Lemons/AER/NASA/SCCA/etc. I'm in the NW Ohio area. Looking for people from the surrounding area that have the time and interest to do 4+ races a year (Autobahn?, Gingerman?, Mid-OH?, Corvette Museum?, ++?) Current Have's: - Immediate leads and funds for turnkey cars, not looking to have to build it all out. Definitely want to work on it once we have it though. - Open indoor garage space to store the car/tools/tires/etc - Myself ..., plus One gent with multi-year Lemon's experiences on multiple teams, and Another gent with a desire to drive and willingness to wrench. Current Need's: - More like minded people in the area with time and motivation to do laps!! MESSAGE ME on here!!!! Or post and I'll reply. New to racing on a track, but have owned a variety of vehicles that I've very much explored the handling limits of ... I'm also rather good with a wrench and don't mind getting dirty, as I exclusively serviced/modified the Yamaha and SpecV when I had them. Have plenty of time, a little extra money to cover myself and my portion of the team expenditures, plus a lot of enthusiasm to get out there and put laps down. Have owned/tinkered with: - 1972 Buick Skylark, 2dr hardtop, 350ci engine, 4bbl carbs, dual straight cherry bombs - 1998 Nissan Sentra SE - 1999 Yamaha R1 - 2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R SpecV - 2008 Scion tC - 2011 Nissan 370Z Nismo
  6. Anyone interested in starting a team in SE Minnesota? I live in Rochester MN, and have noticed a distinct lack of teams in the general surrounding area. I think it's time to fix that. Who's interested in helping me fix such a tradgedy? Looking forward to hearing from you guys, Joseph B.
  7. Hey everyone I'm Ron, I just found out about this thing called ChumpCar and LeMons racing 2 days ago, at age 35 and loving to drive cars fast you would think I would have found this by now but you know... Anyways I am looking to get my first Chumper and start building her up in hopes to spin her tires around the track for the first time in 2018 (Is a year - year and a half reasonable for a first time build?) I am on here today asking for advice on what is a good car to start with, though I know many have their own personal preferences on make and models, or engine size and weight, I am looking to get a more overall picture of what cars are easy to work on and build. Honda civics are a dime a dozen with an endless about of parts and after market upgrades and they are pretty easy to work on, but is it better to go for one that runs good from the start with a higher liter engine staring me at a higher VPI like a Ford Mustang needing little to no upgrades, or a car that runs good but has a small liter engine starting me with a lower VPI, leaving room for more up grades like a Toyota Tercel? As far as the build itself goes, I went school for a general bumper to bumper exp. we worked on everything except transmissions (Though it was the biggest section in the 600+ page curriculum), I tore 4 cylinder/ V-6/ V-8 engines down as far as possible and put them completely back together every day for a good month (The engines never got started so I am a little nervous about timing belts/ chains) we studied and removed and replace everything (Non- Body) on the cars from tires to ball joints, drum and disk breaks, tie rods, shocks, struts, coil overs, you name it. After I graduated, I worked at a Midas in Santa Clarita, California for a couple years where again I did so much more than just oil changes, tires and alignments, I replaced more valve covers and oil pans than I can counts, I have spent more time upside down in the driver seat of a car chasing electrical issues and brake switches, I have dropped a number of transmissions (Midas shipped them to trans shops to be re-built) and I have continued to work on my cars and trucks even after I left Midas. so overall I feel confidant to build my first Chumper myself and with the help of my gear head friends, and the few things I can't do I will take to a shop if they need to be fixed like a transmission. ok enough rambling from me below are some questions I have after looking into this for only two days, I want to thank everyone for taking the time to read this, and for any help that is offered up, I look forward to this journey and am excited about taking the first steps today. I am budgeting $5000.00 for this build (Just the build, not racing fees or gear) is that a good amount or is that too low? Once I have a car, what upgrades are worth spending the extra points? (exhaust, headers, ecu...) What upgrades are not worth spending points on? (adjustable coil overs, sway bars...) Do any weight reductions cost point? (I didn't see anything in section 4 of the rules about weight reduction, but i only read through it once) What are good things to remove from a car to reduce the weight? Automatic or Manuel Transmission? everyone was a first time racer, or built their first car, or put their first team together, what were the things you found difficult your first few times out? what things were simple? What things caught you off guard? Any other advice a first timer should know or consider? p.s. sorry if this is hard to read, English and Grammar were not my strong suits in school...
  8. Straight story... There are 3 of us in total. Myself (team owner), another out of town driver when it suits him and a excellent mechanic/Race Engineer (driver sometimes). All good people. I have two cars. Both cars raced in Chump and one in AER. Both cars need work to be ready to run. I also have all pit equipment, trailers, trucks etc. Safety is top priority and I require a HANS or equivalent. I have spares also. Cars are or will be equipped with Cool suit cooling and additional safety gear. I have other drivers at times but only based on their available funds and rarely can I count on them. This makes planning very difficult. This makes finances very difficult on me. I love doing this. I want more. But I cant do it alone. This is an excellent opportunity for the right people to step into a team that spends the right money in the right places. All you need to do is help pay for race expenses, fix, and drive. I'm looking to put together a proper team for 2015 to do local NE tracks: Watkins Glen, Lime Rock, Maybe Canada, OH and or VIR. Maybe more. We are open to anything...there have been discussions of Pikes Peak and even the Salt Flats...who knows. Please know that this will require an honest open relationship, MONEY, more Money, sometimes alcohol, TIME, more TIME and it will pissoff your wife. Just ask mine. It will not be my decision alone. So send me your information if your interested. And or ask questions. "The Beard"
  9. Hi guys, I need 1 possibly 2 drivers for Watkins Glen in November. Baller Team Racing in a 1987 CR-X Si. The fee is $800 per driver and the car is very competitive! Please let me know asap- Steve- 203-605-0965 or djsteviec1@gmail.com We are going to get rooms, and just split the cost of the rooms. I removed the rear adjustable shocks, and now will have 1 or zero penalty laps.
  10. Hi all, I am brand new to racing. Know a decent amount about cars: have repaired most things but don't remove engines or anything like that. I am aiming to buy an old Honda and start fitting it for racing, I have a goal to make Road Atlanta in 2015. I have also volunteered for the November Atlanta Motorsports event. I am looking for a nearby team that is willing to take a new team member under their wings. I am serious about getting on the track within a year. Thanks!

  12. Hey, I have a 93 Inegra GSR that I would like to get ready for Chumpcar. I am looking for at least 3 other team members who are interested in working on cars, racing, or both.

  14. Hey guys finally got my chump car, It's a 95 Escort GT but has the 1.9 Swapped in. It's fully caged, 5 Speed Stick, Has seat, and is stripped! I went into this with 2 other guys, they are drivers, I am too but I will be handling all of the mechanical. I still need to go through the car, re-do the suspension, and prep it for the track. Also make it look cooler with some paint. This is a top 5 car as-is but with our combined racing experience it should be a winner. We do not have any open seats yet.. Want to get familiar with the car, team, and how the events go first. However we will have open seats once we get in the groove, just wanted to let you guys know another team is available for seating! Take care! Please contact me, I'm based in Whitmore Lake, MI

Did you procrastinate and now registration is closed? Buy our spot! We put the $250 deposit down. Heck, we're desperate so we'll take $100 if anyone is interested.
  16. Do most of you own the car as 1 person and a few regulars help out and pay their dues, and/or sell seat time? do you split everything on the car 4 ways? any ideas of whats the best way to do it? anyone have god point or bad points of doing it both ways.
