How did you get in to ChumpCar racing?
I got into ChumpCar racing by accident, I had done
another series, and was looking for more driving, and less circus. So I searched
the web and found ChumpCar. I read all about it and signed up. Back in the
beginning, when "Chump" first started, things were a bit different. I met Mike
& John at our first race in Rockingham, I liked how things were done, I
liked how there was more input from drivers, more respect for the drivers, and I
felt that I was a valued customer.
What do you think your team's greatest
Our team's biggest strength is hard to single out, we
have a diverse mix of talent..... we have very skilled mechanic's and very
skilled drivers, we all work well together, and above all have a great time,
Maybe our biggest strength is that we don't take things too
What has been your best experience with
Our best experience with ChumpCar, hmmm, probably the
first VIR race, we met a ton of new people, and got to race on a world class
track for the first time. But, honestly, all our experiences with ChumpCar have
been the best.
If you were king of ChumpCar for a day, what
would you do differently?
If I were king of ChumpCar for a day..... that's a scary
thought.... however, I would have a break 1/2 way through the race, and let
everyone take there wife/ kid/ significant other/ friend/ ect, for a ride in
their car, maybe a 5-10 lap experience at slower than race speed.(hey--you
asked) Other than that, I think it's pretty well managed the way it
Anything you want to say to all the Chumps
and would be Chumps out there?
of wisdom: 1) For the new folks: build a car, and come out and race, don't
expect to win the first one, you'll have a blast. 2) For existing "Chumps" or
drivers considering trying the series-- Don't take things too seriously, it's
not an exact science. Find out if this is what makes you happy, if it does
welcome-- if not, there are literally hundreds of other formats to suit your
taste. One of the key elements of ChumpCar is the fact that we don't have a 1000
page rulebook, it's a common sense
