Championship night at WMMP

Saturday night the top late model teams battled it out at WMMP during the final race of the season. On a night when points where crucial, winning was everything.
Our own Oren Remick was the fastest car on the track tonight and proved it by driving to the front and staying there.

Congratulations Oren, Chris Bixby, the team and the families on a year to remember!


 

During the 2012 season Oren had 2 wins, 6 top-fives and 11 top-tens and
finished 4th in Championship points.

What I've learned from hanging out with race teams.

So, it's 6:15 AM and I'm pulling out of my driveway headed for an important appointment 75 miles away when I hear a crack and crunch noise from the back of the car. The right rear splash guard had dug into the grass and ripped the bumper cover off the right side and it's sitting on the pavement. I thought "Oh SWELL",or something like that, "it's going to take me a month to reschedule."

I looked at it for a minute and realized that I see this every damn week at the racetrack. I popped the trunk, grabbed a handful of wire ties and 5 minutes later I was on my way and made the appointment with 3 minutes to spare!

So, on the ride home I'm looking for my bodyman's phone number and how much a rear bumper cover with bracket hardware was going to set me back.

 

Those thoughts were downright scary. Then I had another epithany, "Who knows anymore about this than race teams?" I called Marc Belanger at Aaron's Repair and he said "bring it right up." After they all stopped laughing Aaron and Benny jumped in and took charge. An hour later, and a few applications of "magic glue", the car was as good as new. So, you see, there is redeeaming value in hanging out in race shops drinking beer. And, you might even learn something!
