For your appreciation, a very cool photo from our race at The Podium Club.


Onboard from the race above as well!

Fun Group. Beautiful Track. Muddy driver…


Very cool! Had no clue this was going on in Phoenix. I’ll have to come watch the next race.

Dramatic landscape.

I was particularly impressed with Utah in my travels. Gorgeous rocks and clouds. The western states really are nice.

It’s great until the heat really starts to set in over the summer.

Well, we don’t run during the Summer. The local Sprint tracks run at night under the lights. Now if there was a road course nearby with lights….

K1 Circuit will be lighted some day!
