Bluemaxx Racing in Daytona 2009

Well, the car racing season has again started for my team and we are gearing up for our first race at Daytona International Speedway in less than two weeks. The Bluemaxx Racing/Roadfood.com Porsche 996 will be kicking off our 2009/2010 racing season with the annual Daytona Speedfest on October 23-25. Admission is free for anyone who wants to attend. Just tell the person at the gate that you are with Bluemaxx Racing. All guests must enter the track at GATE 40, which is located on Williamson Blvd. just west of the track. Currently, I am not sure which garage we will be parked in but I will certainly know this as the weekend approaches. When I know this, I will post it here. Otherwise, the racing schedule for the weekend is as follows: 
 
Friday, October 23
9:30 AM – 30 min Race Practice
11:30 AM – 30 min Race Qualifying
3:00 PM – 2 HOUR Endurance Race 

Saturday, October 24
9:30 AM – Race Qualifying
11:20 AM – 30 min Sprint Race
3:15 PM – 30 min Sprint Race 
 
Sunday, October 25
9:30 AM – Race Qualifying
11:20 AM – 30 min Sprint Race
3:15 PM – 30 min Sprint Race 
 
For this year’s weekend, we will be doing things a little differently than last year’s awesome “meat & greet” at The Brickyard. First, my wife and son will be joining me for the entire weekend which means that I will not be able to treat everyone this year. But if anyone wants to get together again this year, let’s see if we can make it happen again.

Hope to see you there,
Rich

    Hey Rich,

    Just now noticed your post. Fri or Sat at the Brickyard or do you want to try somewhere else? I'll let Ben and SK know as well.

    I WILL be there Saturday late morning through the afternoon.
    I fly from Orlando on Sunday morning and will probably drive to Orlando Saturday PM.
    I hope to mix up with y'all (Brickyard, I hope) on Saturday.
    Lemme know.

    WOW!! It looks like there is a possibility that we might have a majority of the same people we had at last year's "meat & greet". This is GREAT if we can make this happen. It is also great that the "one and only" Gregg will be in the area at that exact time. What luck, eh?

    As for me, I am pretty flexible. I have a 30-minute race from 3:15 - 3:45 PM and it will take me a little while to get everything packed up afterwards. Then, I would love to hit the showers before seeing everyone. How does 5:30 PM at The Brickyard on Saturday sound?

    Mar52 - I REALLY REALLY wish you could join us too! This group is tons of fun....and really funny too!

    For anyone who wishes to come to the track to watch the racing or help with our efforts, I have been assigned to Garage 51 in the YELLOW section which is just a few garages down from where I was last year, in the eastern-most garage. This year, feel free to drive to the garage instead of parking out in the grass.

    So, who do we have coming?
    Rich (Bluemaxx)
    Erinn (Mrs. Bluemaxx)
    Tommy (mini Bluemaxx)
    Gregg (wheregreggeats.com)
    John A
    Lou (Mrs John A)
    Bob (SK Bob)
    Peg (Mrs. SK Bob, a.k.a. 3rd Turn Peg)

    Anyone else I don't know about? Chuck? Marlene? Don? Ellen?

    Hey John,  You don't know how tempted I was to make this trip.  Damn work got in the way.  Airfares weren't that great either.

    Hey, thanks for thinking of me, Bluemaxx !!
    Wish I knew about this sooner...
    I'm on the tail end of a 10 day vacation in Reno/Tahoe & L.A. ! Had some decent burgers in Reno (Snowflake Drive In, Char Pit), but none were as good as the Brickyard!
    Regards to the 2009 Brickyard gang!!

    We missed you guys last night.   It's on the schedule for 2010 so make your plans to come on down. Remember, keep Florida green - bring money.

    Here's this years pictures of the gang.  Was great to meet Erin & Tommy.  And Greg's gal Sebring Tammy.  Good to see John, Rich & Baahben again.  Had a great time as usual.  Everyone else has more pictures, which they'll probably post later.

    Kevin Harvick was there to oversee our dinner.






    Sorry about the blurry pictures of the burger.



    Now here's a cutey!!

    Those really were wonderful wings.  I have to talk to them about how exactly they make them.
