"Our team name is now “Pinkies Out”, to make fun of one of our drivers that is an instructor that teaches light pressure on the steering wheel. In fact we caught him on video with his pinkies out going around turn 3 a few years ago. We raced our orange #246 BMW in this year’s 24 hour ChampCar race this past weekend. We won! We started 54th in their random drawing for starting position. We were in 5th at the end of 2 hours. We were in 3rd at the end of 8 hours. We got the lead before the 12th hour. We kept the lead the entire time the last 12 hours. We had a team of 6 drivers plus 8 crew members to pull this off.
The track was very professional this weekend. EV and the flag staff did a great job. I’d like to pass on the compliments that Mike Chisek at Champ Car mentioned at the awards ceremony – “Excellent Job, VIR”. Of course our team is grateful to the VIR Club for the experience we picked up on our track days these past few years."
