MiniRacer26 Posted January 21, 2018 Report Share Posted January 21, 2018 (edited) First, a little about the Raccoon. The "Angry Raccoon" isn't for the faint of heart....it's 350 cubic inches of manly American iron that breathes fire from it's dual exhaust and it's four barrel consumes dead dinosaurs like it's going out of style....not some 4 banger that is better suited for taking the kids to soccer practice or a trip to the Whole Foods Store for gluten free beer. It's a man's car through and through. As soon as you strap in and rev the throttle, you will become a new man. Your Viagra pills will no longer be needed due to your testosterone levels increasing to levels they haven't seen in years, your hair will stop thinning and younger women will flock to your side in droves..begging for your autograph and your Snap Chat info. If you happen to be trapped in the friend zone, those days will soon be over my friend. If this sounds too good to be true, it isn't. A couple of our guys can't make the event due to work related events, therefore we are looking for two drivers to complete our roster for this event. Our car is extremely safe, fast, super fun to drive and is reliable....it's a purpose built car and the build is very nice. Due to ''team error" at Sebring, we ran the car out of oil at the 7th hour, lost oil pressure and exploded the engine.We forgot to check it, therefore one of the primary requirements for the two potential drivers is the ability to read a dipstick. We were running 17th at the time and moving up the leaderboard. We are a fun group, we like our beer cold, chicken wings hot and egos low. We also have some really cool stuff that we bring to the track with us (RV with outdoor kitchen, Air Conditioned Enclosed trailer, beer,pit box, Polaris Ranger, beer and a Chevrolet mechanic). The cost per driver is $1500. Yes, it's more than what it costs to drive a Miata or Honda because we burn more fuel per hour, run massive tires and use up more brakes. We will have two sets of tires at the track, one new set to start the race on and the set from Sebring with 7 hours on them as a spare set. Based on our fuel usage at Sebring, we anticipate burning 10 gallons of fuel per hour. Our car has a 22 gallon ATL road racing cell so we think we can go at least an hour and a half to two hours on a tank of fuel.We also have a hired Chevrolet mechanic on our team to handle any mechanical issues that may arise. The only thing expected of our drivers is to help with pit duties, respect the car and the other members of the team. If you think you are the next Jeff Gordon or Al Unser waiting to be discovered at a ChampCar event, we are not the team for you. If you are a bad drunk, ultra liberal or a drama queen, we kindly ask that you stop reading now. If you crash our car, you are responsible to fix or replace it. If your wife leaves you, and ends up taking the dog, the house and the 401k due to younger, more attractive woman taking notice to your newfound masculinity after racing the Angry Raccoon, that's also on you. I am located in Homosassa ( 3 hours west of Daytona) so we are a Florida based team. We would prefer Florida based drivers because we are planning a testing session to break in the new engine at the local short track.If you are interested and would like more information about us, feel free to contact me on the number listed below. I don't check the forums much anymore so that's the best way to reach me.
