This weekend was all about Camaros, Can-Am Cars, and everything else under the sun that can go fast. Whether it was 80hp Pre-War Specials, or an 800hp Can-Am car, everyone was ready for the WeatherTech International Challenge with Brian Redman. There’s something special about waking up at 7:15am to the spin of the power tools as opposed to a regular alarm clock buzzing in your ear. Camping at the track has been something I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember! I’ve spent over 20 years heading to racetracks all over the country, and I’d have it no other way. That being said, there’s something special about showing up year after year to Road America for “The Hawk.”
Carl Jensen was one of those staple characters of the track and his untimely passing this year was a huge blow to the racing community. You could always count on seeing Carl riding around on his scooter, and his presence missing at the track is certainly something felt by all. There was an all-Camaro welcome dinner and show for participants, as well as an all-Camaro race on Sunday in his memorial.
Once the racing started and the weather cooperated with us, the groups took to the track and had what may have been one of the cleanest racing weekends I’ve seen in a while. People were setting fast laps left and right (get it…) and having a ball. From the Can-Am UOP Shadows to the MG’s, everyone and their mothers were enjoying the races. I’m already excited for the next time out to Road America and you can enjoy the weekend vicariously by checking out our photo gallery below!
