This was our first time at Indy on the road course. It was fun but it just didnít like our car. Also pretty much everthing went wrong that could have with yellow flags and the car wasnít running great. We finished 5th behind Prill, Perona, Henry in their Miatas, and Mathis in his VW.

Kevin was in 4th after 9 laps in perfect position to go for the lead late in the race after his tires keep getting better when others are going away, but they stopped the race after a crash between Huffaker & Hussey after running 3 yellow laps. That left John Walker(Lotus) in 1st, Eric Prill(Miata) in 2nd, and Charlie Campbell(Miata) in 3rd. 5th was Peter Morton (Lotus), and 6th was Sam Henry (Miata).

Kevin locked up the brakes on the second lap of the race to avoid another car at the end of the back straight. He drove off the track and all the way through China Beach to reenter the race in dead last of 31st. He drove well to advance up the field and finish 17th.

This was the Sunday 20 lap 35 minute race. The rain missed us so it was sunny and dry at the start. Prill did not start due to car issues. Kevin blasted to the front immediately and was driving away when he dropped 2 wheels off at the keyhole on the 5th lap. That put crap on the tires which send him off at the end of the straight. From back in 5th he battled back to 2nd but went off again when it rained hard for just about 1 minute. He battled back again and regained the lead in the 18th lap for the win. 2nd was Campbell and 3rd was Workman both in their Miata. By the way, on the 17th lap while Kevin was chasing Campbell he set a new track record on the Pro course by .004 seconds. The entire family was there to see this epic race.

The car ran better with more camber in the rear but needed more in the front. First was Mizer and 2nd was Schmidt in his Prelude, 3rd was Cliff Ira in his Integra.

This was the Saturday 25 minute 11 lap race. It was pouring rain through the whole race so we put on the older rains on the Cooper wheels. They were not the best as the car still hydroplaned in places. The worst was visibility. Kevin jumped to first immediately and led almost the entire race with Charlie Campbell close behind. Eric Prill ran off the track on the first lap. When they caught lappers Kevin backed off rather than to hit someone he could not see and finished 2nd. First was Campbell in his Miata and 3rd was Workman who was over a minute back.

This was the Saturday race in full hard rain. Kevin had a huge lead in lap one when he dropped two wheels off and got spun in the mud. After dropping all the way back to 20th he fought back to 3rd just as a red flag came out. He was awarded 4th after they went back to the last completed lap before the red flag. First was Mason Workman in his Miata, second was Campbell in his Miata, and 3rd was Strittmatter in his Lancia. Kevins fastest lap was 2 seconds faster than all the FP cars.

The second race of the year with the National Champion Integra in run group 3 went the full 20 laps. It was a great battle between Kevin, Ken & Blake with little interference from other classes (EP), but Kevin took the win with Blake in 2nd, and Ken in 3rd. Ken spun in turn 7 in lap 15 to fall back. Kevin had to forego the victory lap and podium to make it to the STL race.

This was the 20 lap Sunday race. We had hoped to have fixed some of the twitchiness of the car but it actually got worse. The brakes were so bad Kevin went off twice. He did a great job driving a wounded brand new car to beat 10 other STL cars. We were thrilled that the engine and trans ran so well the whole weekend. We have a long list of stuff to do to the car.

First race ever for the STL Civic, in Run Group 4 right after Kevin drove the FP Integra. We were surprised the engine ran so well and how bad the chassis was. After several attempts at fixing the twitchiness of the car it wasn't much better. Kevin finished behind Gunnel, Palfenier, and Taylor in a shortened race due to another black flag.

This was the Sunday 18 lap race. We changed the fuel map to add more fuel so the car ran better and Kevin was starting to figure this track out. We turned a couple laps below the track record in the cool-ish morning warm up session but couldn't match that when it hit near 100 degrees at race time. Kevin stayed with Eric for several laps but knew even if he could get close he wouldn't be able to make a pass. So it was Prill, Ruck, and Hingston again. Kevin and Eric finished in front of everyone.

This was the 15 lap Saturday race. The 2.2 mile FP track record is currently owned by Eric Prill at 1:42.139 in his Miata. The car ran hot and was low on horsepower, and we were late to grid so we started the race dead last. Kevin ran great and blasted all the way up to 3rd overall but could not catch up with Prill in his Miata. Third was Hingston who finished well behind Kevin.

Even though Kevin turned in the fastest FP lap by a half second he finished in second place. After falling to second at the start on cold tires, he passed Hingston on the third lap and just drove away from him. Then a Lotus blew and engine which brought out a double yellow which allowed Hingston to catch back up and for the tires to cool off. Hingston only did one turn well and it was turn one. Once he got around Kevin there was not enough time to get heat back in the tires to regain the lead. In impound Hingston and his Miata were found under weight three times after calibrating the scales twice, and was still handed the win?!? I guess things are done differently in Texas.

We ran the 2.9 mile CCW configuration. The track record of the 2.9 mile configuration is owned by Eric Prill in his Miata at 153.186. The track was a lot slower than in the past as it was quite bumpy and the huge amount of rain lately washed any grip away. Kevin qualified in the FP pole with a 1:56.046. It started raining at the start of the race and was on and off through the whole race. Kevin fell to 2nd in class behind Bill Hingston in his Miata 3 times but prevailed to take the win. Hingston took second and third was Neal Frank in his Miata.

He finished over a minute in front of 2nd place Ken Kannard in his Miata, and 3rd place Kyle Baker in his Miata. It was a gorgeous day. Dick got to ride along on the victory lap.

This was a test day we did at NOLA so Kevin could get the feel of this new track for us before we race on Saturday and Sunday and so we could make sure the car was good after not having been run since last May. The day started at 36 degrees and very windy - pretty bad. As it turned out we missed the first session because the car barely ran at idle. After blaming the AEM ECU for a while we found that the fuel pump had died. After replacing it with the spare the engine ran great but the right front of the car jumped and bounced. We found that the right front Koni shock had lost the seal on the gas section. After working on it for quite a while we missed the third session but made the fourth and tempered some new Hoosier tires. It was still not great but probably drivable. We made some more changes to the shock, set the toe in, fueled her up and it was ready for qualifying in the morning.

The car ran awesome all week and was probably the fastest one there. However, the transmission started popping out of gear early in the race and at the end of the race did not want to go back in gear. First was Carpenter and second was Prill. Fourth was Campbell, fifth was Hingston, and sixth was Joe Walker due to Henry being moved to last place. Kevin did a great job of driving a wounded racecar and putting it on the podium.

This was our first Majors race and our first race at this track. SCCA had not run here since 1994. It is a NASCAR type oval that was converted into a road course for us. This was the Saturday race. Kevin led the entire race. Second in FP was Rob Futcher in his Lotus Super 7, and third was Dave Strittmatter in his Lancia Scorpian. They tried to penalize Kevin 3 positions for passing under yellow, but our in-car cameras saved us again by proving he did not. Kevin also set the track record.

Once his tires heated up Kevin was being held up by Martz in an EP RX7 even though he was no where near any of the other EP cars. Kevin went to pass and Martz turned into him and they both spun. Kevin got back on track 3rd in FP. He reeled in and passed Strittmatter for the lead but spun again in turn 11 because of buildup on the rear tires due to driving off line to pass. He restarted and still finished 2nd. Third was Workman. Martz protested Kevin but luckily we had our in car camera which showed Kevin did nothing wrong. Martz actually appologized after viewing the video.

The Pro course is suited better for the Integra than the Club course and Kevin took advantage of that fact. He was very close to the track record in qualifying. After his father crashed the FProd car and went to the hospital for a safety check, Kev had to get the car ready by himself and race in the next run group. Kevin not only won the race but broke the track record on three different laps. He has been trying to take a Mid Ohio record away from Joey Moser for years and finally did it.

Dick was faster in the corners and braking but could not stay with the Mustang in the straights. John Walker caught up and made a great pass to go to first and drove away from the Mustang in the corners. In the 9th lap Dick overlapped the throttle with his foot under hard braking in the keyhole and hit the Mustang hard. Dick went to the hospital for x-rays to a sore back and bruised ribs.

In the race, while making a pass into the lead, Kevin was hit and spun off the track, fell back to 9th place, worked his way all the way back to 3rd, and finished 5th due to front tires going away from misalignment from the impact. First was Carpenter (Integra 2:34.560), second was Harris (Miata 2:34.716), and third was Prill (Lotus S7 2.34.846). The fastest lap was Bryson (Miata 2.34.051) who fell out after 4 laps.

This was Dick's first race in a NASA Honda Challenge race. We modified the CX to essentially make it into a DX Civic which is legal in NASA. Only 9 of the 20 or so cars entered stayed for the race on Sunday after the massive snowfall on Saturday. Dick ran in H4 with Kevin instead of H5 because he would have had to add 225 pounds to run in H5. Dick started in 2nd, spun out all the way to the back, worked his way back up to 3rd, spun out again, and worked his way back up some before the race was stopped after just 10 laps. It was horrible race conditions with dry spots, snowy spots, and rivers of water running across the track.

Even though the track conditions were terrible, Kevin managed not only to keep his car on the track but to take the overall pole in front of H1, H2 and H3 cars. At the start of the race, he got the jump on the Honda R&D VTEC Prelude and kept him behind him until he got through the esses. After that Kevin was gone. He lapped every other car in the Honda Challenge race except 2 cars. This was our first race on new Team Dynamics wheels and new Kumho tires.

Kevin raced the old Civic S for the first time in several years and had great fun. He qualified behind Meg Meyers in her ?Civic? and started right behind her in the race. He had to brake to stop from hitting her in the corners but she would blast away from him in the straights - literally - she could put 10 cars lengths between her and Kevin on one straight if she wanted to. We have driven this car against the best ITC cars in the country and no one has ever been able to pull our Civic like that. It appeared that she drove just fast enough to keep Kevin in her rear view mirror.......things haven't changed for Meg & the cars her father builds for her.

The car was running great and Kevin was flirting with the track record. Late in the day, Kevin dropped a wheel off the track and hit a huge Nelson Ledges pot hole which sent him into a tire barrier which flipped and destroyed the car. Kevin was taken to the hospital in Warren with a broken neck. He had surgery the next day at Riverside to fuse his C6 and C7 vertebrae.

After replacing the radiator, putting back on the oil filler cap, and pulling out the bumper the car was ready to race. Sunday it was raining again. With his car gassed up this time and on with his Hoosier rain tires, he passed 14 cars for position and nearly caught the leader Carl Holbrook(Renault) on the last lap.

In the first lap of the qualifying race Kevin bashed into a VW Golf at the top of the esses which damaged the radiator and knocked off the oil filler cap but the car kept running. Kevins other problem was we forgot to put gas in the car so he was sputtering on most of the turns. He just tried not to lose too many positions.
