I just received an email from Patrick that my Truck will not be allowed to participate in any SpeedSF events.


Sean,


Unfortunately, after discussing with our officials. Your truck is not allowed at our event.


Patrick Chio

Speed SF Track Events

Speedsf.com

I asked him if he could give me any reasons behind it. Seems very different. Most every other club or event I have run with has been super excited to have some different sign up and even more happy when it can keep up with $80,000.00 sports cars.

Maybe next time I can make it down there guys.

Thanks for posting this event up.

Sean

Thanks buddy. I was pretty upset when I got his email back saying I was not allowed but if they don't want me there, I don't want to be there.

If that is the kind of crowd they are I would not be a good fit.

Here is the funny thing.

I originally emailed him, sent him a description of the truck, my background, all of the instructor schools I have done in the last two years and a list of all the events....it was very clear that it was a truck.

He then asked for some photos of the TRUCK...

Of course I obliged and sent him a few photos of the truck.

I asked him this evening and he sited their rules and that there are no trucks or SUV's allowed for safety purposes.

I call total b.s. no trucks allowed is fine just tell me that up front but when you ask for photos and run it past your officials there is another reason.

I don't believe in not telling the truth as hard as it is to hear sometimes I would rather hear the truth than some bull**** story.

I'll get down there to run with you guys this spring.

Sean

No trucks....other than this one found on their site, running Thunderhill.
Whatever. No worries, plenty of other events. You know, with you not going, Dave just got faster. Lol

That's a big ball of suck, Sean--we were looking forward to seeing the truck kicking the surprised snot out of some snooty punks. That said, it seems that much of the track and autocross crowd has not been made aware of the abilities and builds of pro-tour pick-ups. Perhaps they've also missed that whole NASCAR truck series, in which they race pick-up-like things . . .

Maybe it's time for another LS-powered Volvo or something like that from you. We all know you'll be back with something far more imaginative than a C5, not that that's a bad car . . .

Yeah... That would rub me the wrong way as well. Most promoters are clamoring for attendees at their events...guess this one doesn't have that issue.

Sucks Sean but there are still plenty of other chances to beat your junk up at other events that will welcome your awesome build.

There's always Norcal Shelby's Spring Sprint there April 28-29. They're Greg's favorite group to run with.
