Tango Posted August 15, 2012 Report Share Posted August 15, 2012 I know that I'm a little late on the response, but I wanted to say thanks to all the Chumps and Chump staff for an awesome weekend at VIR. This was our first time at VIR and first time racing with ChumpCar. My family and I have raced LeMons in the past but have heard good things & so-so things about Chump and decided to check it out for ourselves. Overall, we had a fantastic time and it was well worth the haul from Michigan.To be honest, I was a little skeptical about the Chump atmosphere vs LeMons. I was anticipating everybody to be much more hostile and not willing to lend a hand if we had issues. I was dead wrong. Everybody came up and chit chatted before the race and in the tech line. Rob from Simon Says gave us some pointers even while waiting for the gate to open. Our pit mates, Flatout and Dog ciao were great and we worked out our pit stops together. They even helped hold our fire extinguisher when we didn't have enough people.By the grace of the JB weld gods, we didn't have any major mechanical issues but I'm sure people would have offered help. It was a superb experience!We had some absolutely great racing with everybody and we had very little to no contact depending on our drivers. Sorry for any contact we had with anybody. We tried to point by the quicker teams and thanks to the other teams for the point by's. We tried to waive back when the time was appropriate or give the trucker on/off running thank you light signal at night.We will see you Chumps again!Thanks again for a great race.- Tim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
