ChumpCar World Series: Watkins Glen International – Part 1


The safety crew that WGI and ChumpCar had on hand was outstanding. Thanks to everyone there who helped ensure our safety.
#88 heads down pit road for fuel and a driver change while the #103 white Civic, a car based out of Calabogie and with a hometown advantage for the July race weekend, flies by.

Bryce, one of #88's drivers and someone I have known for a few years now, indicates that one of the biggest challenges is getting everyone together to work on the car. Unless you are lucky enough to have your team close by, it means that an hour of two of driving will need to be added to the work schedule. #88 chose a car they knew how to work on, swapped in a JDM ZC DOHC engine, and with some safety upgrades they are out racing. Unfortunately a visit to the Armco at WCI brought their weekend to to a sudden end. The driver was okay, pride dented but experience gained, however, the car is another story. It is quite possible that the video of that incident may not make it to the highlight reel that is shown to their wives and girlfriends. Like the Six Million Dollar man, #88 will be back stronger and faster than ever. Bryce sums up ChumpCar with this statement, “ChumpCar racing with a great team is the most fun you can have legally”.

Stay tuned. The next segment of “ChumpCar World Series: WGI” focuses upon the roller coaster ride that our No Budget Racing 1 and Too team experienced. It stretched the concept of fun.
