BMTRBLU Racing #187 - Central Region

Recommended Posts

BM Trouble U Racing is composed of a bunch of goons/Ford employees from Southeast Michigan with engineering degrees and poor volume control.


From left to right:

Michael Roper - Resident Californian, somehow still really fast

Kristen Hauser - Purchasing department, cat lady 

Kyle Garvin - 24 Hrs of Lemons vet, master fabricator

Adam Brecher - Owner, purveyor of fine bourbon, vehicle dynamics guru

Alex Gidley - Expert on E36 modz, camp master/owner of support Swagon  




We run a 1997 BMW 318ti that spent the prime days of its life on the hot streets of Nevada before being used (unsuccessfully) for a bank robbery and winding up in the hands of a student at Carnegie Mellon University. PO sold it to our teammate Adam after blessing it with traditional Hopi juju which got us through our first event at Gingerman Raceway. 


We spent most of 2016 bringing the car up to Chump standards, drinking Coronas, and plasti-dipping our wheels, but we are looking forward to making some big improvements over the winter and coming in hot for the 2017 season. 




We were honored to receive the Chump Award for being terrible at pit stops, driving the car 3 hours to and from the race, and still managing to have a good time. Many thanks to the Chump staff and everyone who helped us out!!! 



And yes, we made it home okay: 



We are desperately trying to get sponsored by our Official Garage Radio Station: 105.1 The Bounce, Detroit's Throwback Hip Hop and R&B Station. If you know anyone in the business, please put in a good word.

Say what?  Ford employees and even you chose a BMW?   

At least they chose a good cage guy. A Chrysler employee that races a Ford. 

 To the team: it was great seeing your team at Gingerman. Very well done. I was surprised to see you drive the car to and from getting it caged, but to drive to and from the track, that's just awesome. Nice job! Hope to see your team out  at the races again soon
