    As some of you may know I have been building a Fiero to race in the Chumpcar endurance series. Unfortunately, one of my team members had to drop out and will not be racing. Therefore, I have an open seat for the upcoming race at Michigan International Speedway. The race takes place on August 25 & 26 with tech on the 24th. Each day will be a 7 hour race so ~1:40 of race time, each day, depending on how the car holds up. Full fire gear is required. The cost to run will be $700 to cover entry fees, gas (race & tow), tires, spare parts, brakes, etc. If you have not run with Chump this year it is $50 for a license and another $25 for a novice school if you do not have recent wheel to wheel experience. The current team members are myself, CJ Carter, & Scott Wright (lives in KY and runs some Columbus events).

    About the car:

    1987 Pontiac Fiero

    Stock 2.8L replaced with a 3.4L out of a 1995 Firebird

    The engine has been torn down to the bare block, cleaned, and rebuilt. Heads have also been rebuilt.

    Upgraded to Pontiac Grand-Am brakes on all corners

    Cage fabbed by Michael Leveque

    Kirkey racing seat w 6 point harness

    And almost enough spares to build a 2nd Fiero

    Good luck finding another driver! I'll be flagging a corner, so I'll try to keep an eye open for you out there.

    If you can't make this event we are also looking for a couple drivers for the Chumpcar event at Road America on October 20 & 21st. It'll be a great chance to run at one of the best courses in the country. Let myself or CJ know if there is any interest in running either of the events.

    The team now owns an extra fire suit. It is a brand new never worn Racequip Multilayer 1-piece Large suit. We would be willing to rent this out for $50 per event. You will be able to share gloves & neck collar with one of us. So the only thing that will be needed is a helmet, balaclava (if necessary), shoes, & socks.

    No fuel cell for now. We may look into it for the future but are just starting with the stock tank.

    The final seat for Michigan has been taken. We will have seats available for Road America on October 20 & 21st, double 7, and may look into running Road Atlanta on December 8th, 14 hour... yeah 4 more hours than the Petit Le Mans! Road America will be $725 each and Road Atlanta will be $800, difference in price due to tow distance.
