The Crew


Captain Ray                                                                      


    Ray gets the honor of team captain not because of his fierce ability to lead troops into battle, but because this whole irresponsible event was his idea.  That’s about it.  Ray’s other considerable talents include looking suspiciously like Andy Gibb in his younger days (a recent and disturbing revelation).  Ray enjoys working ridiculously long hours, constantly cleaning up after the kids and long walks on the beach.


In his/her garage:  Ray has a 1978 911 SC which is in its 6th year of restoration (made possible only through the generosity of his very old friend Uncle Rusty of Naples Eurosport).  Most of his friends don’t believe the 911 actually exists.  Hey, don’t rush me….   it’s almost done.




    Chris runs an automotive repair shop (Windsor Tire Co.) so it’s a friggin miracle he wants anything to do with a car in his “fun” time.  But, Chris likes to drink beer and we suspect his involvement has much more to do with the golden elixir than anything else.  Chris is also a huge Elvis Presley fan, though honestly I am still trying to figure out if that is a good or bad think.  If he brings his Elvis costume to the race, it’s definitely a bad thing.


In his/her garage:  Chris has spent the last 15 years or so restoring a 1967 Chrysler Sedan.  Yup, that’s right, I said sedan.  No, I can’t explain why except maybe that’s where he lost his virginity or something.  The amount of money he has spent on NOS chrome lettering alone is enough to silence critics of a federally run healthcare system.  If anyone can find the letter “Y” please let Chris know.





    Cam is a hard-core motorhead from way back.  Cam is also sign-maker by trade so while our car may be a gigantic POS, we expect the graphics are going to look great!  Until very recently he had both a Mustang GT convertible and a Camaro SS (Both are new…. we are pretty sure he’s in the Portuguese mob.)  Cam just managed to total the Mustang while driving in a straight line, so he’s the odd-on favorite for putting the first dent in our fine automobile.


In his/her garage:  Cam now “only” has a brand new Camaro SS.  It’s bright yellow just like the one in the Transformers movie.  We are pretty sure he has a life size blow-up doll of Meghan Fox that he drives around town with.  I am afraid to ask what else he does with it.





    Jim is a huge NASCAR fan despite the fact that he boasts a full set of teeth.  Big Jim is also the hired muscle should any guys/girls start hitting on us at the track (we can dream, can’t we?).  He is 6’ 100” tall without any hint of exaggeration.    I’m just going to apologize right now for this picture; it’s the only one I could find. 


In his/her garage:  Jim has nothing the most refined Japanese luxury vehicles these days, but it was only a few years ago that he had a track prepared Mustang Fox-body.  Nothing says enthusiast like a Mustang LX with a 5.0 and a stick.




    Doug runs a body shop so it doesn’t exactly take a rocket scientist to figure out what he brings to the party.  We are hoping that a fine selection of humongous body-shaping hammers and pry bars will make its way to track-side….  just in case.  I mean, come on, I already told you what Cam can do!  Doug also has a singularly unique ability to wear dark socks and sandals.  Let’s face it, not everyone can pull off that look successfully and Doug is a good 15 years ahead of the legal age where that is allowed by Massachusetts state code.


In his/her garage:  Doug has had a few cool cars over the years including some neat old Oldsmobile 442 hardware.  He even had a Monticarlo SS back in the big 80s though reports of a matching mullet have not been confirmed.  These days the pace has slowed a bit and he now has a 1966 Cadillac Sedan Deville in remarkably original condition.  It mostly serves as a centerpiece for lawn-art during Halloween.





    In an ironic twist of fate, a slot opened up on our team and a woman grabbed it.  Jodi has actual car racing experience and lives for track racing.  Why she wants to hang with a bunch of amateur (immature?) old guys and driving a $500 crap cap is a bit of a mystery, but we’ll chalk it up to our collective good looks.  (Ahem.  Ahem.  Much throat clearing ensued…. )  Actually we know it’s because she has unflinching love for car racing whatever the venue.


In her/his garage:  Jodi has an actual race car.  No freakin’ kidding! 





Dan realized that family commitments precluded him from participation in 2010, but hopes to join us in 2011.  Dan gets the gold star on his forehead for making the right call, but we will miss him!  Wait a minute; this whole theme was his idea….   I’m starting to wonder if this was all a very good joke on us!


In his/her garage:  Dan currently has a nice practical pair of Toyotas (look out!).  But, Dan once traded in a Subaru WRX for one of those god-awful Scion boxy thingies.  We have no actual explanation for this, but clearly this move of insanity qualified him nicely for the team.
