ESR wanted to take a minute and recognize our best season in racing to date. We literally won just about everything there is to win in SM. ESR would like to congratulate all of those who use our cars and engines for such a strong year. We couldn’t do it with some of the best drivers in SCCA.
Special recognition to:
Todd Buras on winning his First SCCA National Championship
Jim Drago on winning his First NASA national Championship
Jim Drago on winning his fourth Hoosier Super Tour Championship
Tyler Brown on his first June Sprints
Brian Henderson for his first Super Tour race win at VIR
Preston Pardus for winning the Southeast Conference, multiple wins and 2nd in HST
Kyle Webb for his third place at NASA Championships
And to all the others who help make our products look so good. Hoping for a repeat in 2020

One thing that you and your team don't get credit for is the ability to drive as unit.  You all know its a long race and if you can control the pace and position the cars properly you can dominate the podium.  It sounds easy, but if it were easy everyone would be doing it.

Jim has to be really picky with team members otherwise people would be arguing lack of parity among team. The lack of parity would clearly be the drivers. :rotfl: Great job ESR and team leader. :thumbsup: 

 

Michael, grand daughter is a Sophomore JV co-captain/team leader who just finished the high school season. This past Sat. Classic Eight Conference tournament, For place 1st and 2nd the scores were. If tied a third game to 15. 1st game her team won 25-17, lost second game 23-25 and lost 3rd game 14-16. Now on to traveling Club v-ball which lasts until June AUU tournament in Fl.

My dad goes to all my daughters home games at college and she's medical red-shirting this season.  Be careful its addictive to grandfathers.
