Hi everyone! I'm Alex, the latest addition to the Three Sheets Racing roster. Although we had a few hiccups throughout the weekend (blown gearbox and occasional lapses of skill in the rain), the car ran great and we still had a lot of fun! It was great to meet so many fellow chumps and race alongside you at Road America. I had a blast this weekend and I'm looking forward to racing again in Iowa.

I've been an avid photographer for the past few years and I thought I'd share a few photos I took during the race weekend.

Here are a few from Saturday's race:

Well done!

May we have permission to use the images of the SHO for our facebook fan page and avatars?

Thanks Jeff! You're more than welcome to use the lo-res pics.

The rest of the pics I have from the weekend can be seen here:

I tried to get at least a shot or two of every car out racing this weekend so if you don't see one of your car, let me know and I'll see if I've got one that I haven't edited yet.

Thanks for the info, John. I'm not trying to sell anything (I know my fellow chumps would rather spend money on racing anyway) and I just wanted to share the pics with everyone who might want to see them. Thanks for tipping me off to the gallery section. I'll use that from here on out.

Oh, I see -- #22 was parodying the car from _Dumb and Dumber_. Or there's a remarkable coincidence.

Also, a question on #21: I've just looked through the rules, and I can't find the rule on bodywork. I know it's legal -- else it wouldn't have raced -- but I can't find the section of the rules something like that falls under.

10.3. Body Panels:

10.3.1. Body panels shall be securely mounted. Fender skirts and hub caps shall be removed. The hood and

engine compartment shall be securely fastened.

10.3.2. Each car entered must have a minimum of 50% of the ORIGINAL body panels or uni-body/frame on

the car. No frame and cage only cars. No skeletons. No kit cars. You can get rid of the hood and

trunk lid, or cut-off the roof… but the rest of the car better be there.

ya I kind of wondered about that too. I'm not sure 50% of the original body panels are there.

I think my favorite is the shot of the monitor with two cars in the gravel :)

That's what happens when you try to keep up with the mighty BreakDuster! :D

That would be the "body panels *OR* unibody/frame" -- and BMWs aren't known for being unibodies....

Yeah, I love how they just bolted the bodies to the frame! lol

Threadjack in progress.

Keep reading the rules....you missed an important 'OR' ;)

You're wrong. I didn't miss it, I kept reading maybe you should too :blink: :

I'm not saying I have a problem with what they did, I'm just curious where the line gets drawn? That BMW appears to have no roof, no hood, no trunk and no rear quarters(at least not much left).

Just wondering where CCWS stands on it.

Those are some really great pics too. Thanks for posting them Three Sheets!

Just wondering where CCWS stands on it.

The car was teched at a CCWS event by CCWS staff.

If CCWS felt the chopping was excessive, penalty laps were awarded.

Penalty laps aren't published unless the Brake Dusters choose to share the information.

(note, I'm not being a "smartass" or "know-it-all"... but posting my opinion of how the process works :) )
