Pre-race prep on a LeMons race weekend for Speedycop & The Gang of Outlaws is always barely controlled chaos. Today will be no different! It will likely be another all-nighter, even though we're still hoping to get to Summit Point tonight. The new '93 BMW 325i race car is far from finished, despite countless hours of prep. The cage is 95% done, and look amazing, thanks to Jim Whitley of Roll Cage Components (www.rollcagecomponents.com). The engine needs the new water pump and tuneup installed, the new exhaust needs to be welded up and installed, the new brake rotors/calipers/stainless lines need to go on, it needs a seat/harness/cutoff switch/extinguisher/padding/

etc, and we still have to theme it. The Suzuki X-90 is almost ready. It needs the exhaust finished, the new radiator installed (once it arrives), and theme work. The Miata 1.8L we swapped in is running well, though without a cooling system we haven't been able to drive it yet. The Wounded Warrior Cougar just needs the new brakes bled, and the fuel filter changed. Altogether, that's not more than a couple weeks worth of work. No worries, we have all day. ;)
