2013 Summary

Given that 2013 was the "real" first year of the US Majors Tour that I was hired to head up, our standard plan of running enough SARRC events to contend for a fourth GTA Championship was never in the cards. I did attend eleven of the nineteen Majors events on the schedule (see list below) and raced at three of them, plus helped conduct the 50th running of the SCCA National Championship event (aka - the Runoffs) at Road America. We concluded the year by being awarded the win in the GTA race at the ARRC by GRM, which reminded me I still haven't forgotten how to drive a race car.

I know it's a tough job, but here's the list of US Majors Tour events I attended:

  • Jan 4-6 - Sebring International Raceway (FL)
  • Jan 25-27 - Auto Club Speedway (CA)
  • Mar 8-10 - Circuit of the Americas (TX)
  • Mar 15-17 - Road Atlanta (GA)
  • Apr 6-7 - Hallett Motor Racing Circuit (OK)
  • Apr 19-21 - VIRginia International Raceway (VA)
  • May 25-26 - Michigan International Speedway (MI)
  • May 31-Jun 2- New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJ)
  • Jun 14-16 - Road America (WI)
  • Jul 5-7 - Portland International Raceway (OR)
  • Aug 3-4 - Gateway Motorsports Park (MO)

As part of my job I also attended five regional/divisional/national conventions around the country, the "Best Runoffs Ever", and the annual Performance & Racing Industries (PRI) show. I learned a lot, plus along the way I met and worked with a ton of people from all over the country who are just as passionate about SCCA and racing as I am!

I'm not sure it was the absolute BEST year I've ever had, but it's definitely on the podium! <g>

See y'all at the track...
