Drifting a high horsepower 3,000 pound sports car…easy. Try it in a 10,000 pound purpose built Semi Truck….not so easy. DEI sponsored Racer / Stunt Man Mike Ryan has driven this truck to 12 Pikes Peak Hill Climb Championships and decided it’s time to show his skills and the capabilities of his race truck on the original Gymkhana location at El Toro Marine Base in CA ala Ken Block.

Mike was also feature on a recent episode of Carcast with Adam Carolla. The website feature an audiocast (or "podcast"), multiple videos and a photo album of Adam Carolla, Mike Ryan and the semi.

 


 

Immediately after receiving his driver’s license, Jerad Busbin was interested in performance cars.  Quickly introduced to the tuner scene at age 18, he began dirtying his fingers modifying his 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse.  Basic bolt-ons were the start.  It would not end there though.  The initial performance spark ignited an inferno which would lead Jerad to Indian River Community College.  There he enrolled in their automotive technician program.  In short time, the Eclipse tragically lost a timing belt.  A stock-spec rebuilt was out of the question.  The engine received a list of performance aftermarket goodies including forged pistons, Crower cams, racing valve springs and retainers, and a tune to support the mods.  Jerad never raced the Eclipse; he felt it just didn’t have enough power.  A turbo was now in order.  That would not happen, though.  Unfortunately, he realized the high compression ratio and all motor cams would not be turbo friendly.  Jerad is not hesitant to say that he spent way too much money on the Eclipse.  But it was a great starter car to learn on, and he doesn’t regret any of it.

 


 

UW Racing This past August, The University of Wisconsin Formula SAE Racing Team competed at this year's Formula Student Germany. Just what is Formula Student Germany? It's an international design competition where "Students build a single seat formula racecar with which they can compete against teams from all over the world. The competition is not won solely by the team with the fastest car, but rather by the team with the best overall package of construction, performance, and financial and sales planning. Formula Student challenges the team members to go the extra step in their education by incorporating into it intensive experience in [designing], building and manufacturing as well as considering the economic aspects of the automotive industry."

 


 

Saving the best for last, we are very excited to inform you that #7 Charlie Schultz of May Motorsports has been declared the MSA Supermodified Champion for 2010.  Our final race was scheduled for this past Saturday night at Lorain County Speedway, unfortunately bad weather prevented us from racing.  Similar to a green, white, checker or a race called halfway and the winner declared.

Charlie Schultz of May Motorsports is the 2010 MSA Champion

Our racing organization implemented a new points system for 2010.  Qualifying, Heat and Feature Finishes were all used.  It was a close battle as you can see, but Charlie successfully emerged as the top contender and Tim Ice placing 4th,  only 3 points away from 3rd place.
