Homestead 2004 - Grand Am Cup

I decided to post some "flashback" pictures this time...LOL

This is Glenn Yee Motorsports at Homestead, FL in 2004 for the Grand American Cup series race. This was our 1st time in Homestead, and with a new construction car too! OMG
The guys were all busy as soon as we unloaded the car! They were quickly finishing all the little things so we could go to tech before the racing weekend.
Glenn, Mike, Doug, Anthony, and Memo all worked up a sweat in a hurry...but made it go right and got us through tech and out on the track!

We had Hugh Plumb ( http://www.hughplumb.com/) driving with us, and on Saturday he set the unofficial track record during 2nd practice session, & broke the record he just set in the next session!! Then on Sunday, he had fastest time during 1st practice session! WTG Hugh!!
Our team owner had a small issue, and got caught up with turn 4 on the oval....he gave the car a big "owie"....some road rash, and a bent axle...UGH

Our crew rallied, got all the replacement parts, and rebuilt the corner of the car. Those guys were AWESOME!
Once the car was up & running again, it was time to RACE!!

We also had a new P.R. person this race, Lee Hublein (www.facebook.com/people/leeheublein-hsu/609403839). Great gal...great P.R. rep...loves the track...COOL!

Craig Stanton (http://www.craigstanton.com/) stopped by our garage to say hi, and check in with Glenn & Hugh.

We always have a great time at the track...even with the drama of crashes, and brake issues!! What a great job...travelling around the country going RACING!
