Hey roadster fans,

It's that time of the season and again I'll be running up at Road America in FP with my 1600 at the 49th annual SCCA Runoffs.

The schedule for the runoffs is found here. http://scca.cdn.racersites.com/prod/ass ... .27.12.pdf

I'll be racing at 1:30pm on Sunday, Sept. 23rd.

There will be live timing on the SCCA.com site and the races will be tap
ed for streaming video on Speedcast TV.com, the links just have not yet been set up yet.

So thanks for your support and "enjoy the ride"!

Hey roadster race fans, yesterday we put Datsun 1600 pushrods back up on the podium third step for the second time in as many years.

We had an issue in qualifying with a new engine that popped the head gasket in the second session, so we changed back to last years engine for the race missing the third qualifying. Hence, we started 13th but knew that engine was strong and quickly made up ground.

Ran laps in the race faster than ever and unfortunately ran the tires off the rear. I could not re-pass Henry and was in 4th but Prill locked up and spun off turn 12 with a lap to go and that made it third!

Gotta thank Scotty and Dan at Taylor Racing for fixing an issue in the trans while I swapped the engine. Thanks also to Mark at TriMark and JP at JP Metalfab who help me locally with the car. Thanks to Nissan and Goodyear for their continued support!

You can see the race on the Speedcast TV website http://www.speedcasttv.com/scca/#/races/316.
