Last weekend I had the privilege of shooting at Miller Motorsports Park with the JDR Motorsports Team. It seems like only yesterday they finished this Civic. Here is a link to the build in 2009

Did you know the full course, at 4.5 miles with 23 turns is the longest track in North America? Race Flags at Miller Motorsports Park. Click to Pin itRace Flags at Miller Motorsports Park.

Setting up scale.Must have exact weight after race and loss of fuel. Ready to Race!Class PTC! Ready to beat some non Hondas. I experienced first hand some great teamwork, communication and determination watching James Rowen and his crew. There were times it looked impossible for the Civic to get classed let alone place 4th. The Honda Challenge the Civic was built for was cancelled but JDR didn’t drive all the way from Montana to watch the races from the stands. They added weight, removed upgrades and jumped through as many hoops as they needed to race. Just getting the car ready for an unexpected class change felt like a win in my book. These guys got it done. Congratulations JDR Motorsports! (left to right: Steve Wilson, James Rowen, Darren Stucker and Brian Franklin)
