PCA Track Days AT SMMR

PCA Track Days AT SMMR

Last weekend we closed out our 2019 season at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch by doing the final PCA (Porsche Club of America) HPDE event of the year. This one was a little different than the normal PCA weekends because we actually ran a different configuration. Usually we run the Mansell 3.4:   This time around we were running the Lauda 2.6: Usually, the Mansell will favor higher horsepower cars. This can make it challenging for me in my D16Y8 to…

Billy does Buttonwillow

Billy does Buttonwillow

That’s right! I finally popped my Buttonwillow cherry. Last April, I made the trip down there with Pat to create content for the blog by documenting his journey. Some of you may remember that it didn’t as planned. He ended up blowing his motor on his third lap out, and we had to get his car towed all the way back to Vegas. Let’s just thank the lord that a few days prior to us leaving he had gotten a…

SPEED VENTURES LVMS RECAP

SPEED VENTURES LVMS RECAP

This event was randomly added to the Speed ventures schedule only weeks prior to the event. You weren’t even able to register for the event from their home page, you had to register via a link they emailed out. (I know this because I deleted the email and couldn’t register, I had to have Patrick email me the link) It seems the event was added last minute as an addition to the other activities taking place around the LVMS facility…

Super Mega Track Weekend Extravaganza

Super Mega Track Weekend Extravaganza

In the end all I wanted to get across was how amazing of a weekend I had with my friends, and how awesome it was to share everyones highs and lows. It was truly the most fun I have had at any motorsport event that I have participated in. I wasn’t able to achieve the times I was looking for and I was disappointed in…

Streets of Willow Redemption!

Streets of Willow Redemption!

A few weeks back I made my first trip to Willow Springs international Raceway. It was going to be first time ever at Street’s, and my first night event. I was very excited because this was going to be the first event I have done outside of the Vegas area, and it was going to be the first event I did in my 4 door. Going into this event I had put a lot of pressure on myself to get…

The STREETS OF WILLOW Adventure

The STREETS OF WILLOW Adventure

Over the past 6 months you have watched me build this car into the daily driving, track capable, budget car that you see here today. The point of this build was to have an all around car that I could thrash on with out fear of financial consequences if I were to wreck it. This once daily driver, slowly turned track car was built from spare parts I had lying around as “cheaply” as possible, and as “stock” as possible…

Kaiju Motorsports Grand opening Meet

Kaiju Motorsports Grand opening Meet

Ever since I have lived in Vegas (since 2003) there has always been a void here when it comes to aftermarket parts for any sort of vehicle. I have always “wished” there was a shop in town that would carry top tier parts, fluids, and be knowledgeable or well versed in any type of project you were doing. Yea sure, ordering online is what we all do most of the time anyway. But it’s always such a risk when you’re…
