An amateur endurance auto racing team hoping to show everyone that they too can participate in performance driving or racing. We are a relatively new team and learning right along with you. Our assumption is that you know very little to nothing about the sport but are interested in learning to drive better and eventually maybe even race in a local event of interest. We will cover all forms of racing and hope to be entertaining as well as educational.

DwD 0360: Optimal Mirror Positioning Tips One of the fundamental aspects of racing that everyone agrees upon is the importance of your vision and constantly working to improve it. Unfortunately, when you are starting out, this is even more important since it is very likely that your relative speed is lower than some of the other more experience dri…
 
GHIT 0359 GridLife's NJMP 2022 Event with E1R’s Chris and Chrissy We were finally able to go to our first GridLife event this year at NJMP and to make it even better we were there with our friends from the Everyone Racers podcast Chris and Chrissy.

DwD 0357: Roles Within a Team Defined It is often said that the key to winning an endurance race is a management problem and not primarily a speed problem. In this Dominating with Dawson episode, we go over some of the roles that are needed to successfully accomplish a racing or HPDE event. While each of the roles are needed, it is very often that …
 
DwD 0356: Why Do We Want You to Come Race With Us?

DwD 0354: Overdoing It and Leading to Potential Burnout As is often the case, we sometimes show you what not to do. This time, it was after three straight race weekends in multiple states that Bill entered a zombie state. This is not optimal for performance or enjoyment and can not only turn a fun recreational past time into a large effort/struggle…
 
GHIT 0353: Chris Haase Racer, Lemons Judge, and Cookie Stealer Chris Haase has been racing with the 24 Hours of Lemons for more than a decade and began judging a few years ago.

GHIT 0352: Our Track Day at the NY Safety Track When we were invited to a new track for an HPDE we did what we always say to do – “say yes” and thank you. Our drivers for the event were Vicki, Alan, and Jen. Bill was there primarily to help instruct and to start breaking in our new race car. Even better, Kyle Lockrow said he wanted to come over and…
 
DwD 0351: What is rotation – Part 4 or maybe more? We are going to take advantage of this week’s Judge Jeremy covering for Ben and go into car rotation for at least the fourth time.

GHIT 0344: Race Recap: GHIT’s Ladies Team Raced In our 1993 Honda Civic Our first ever race was at NJMP’s Thunderbolt track with 24 Hours of Lemons and seems to be a lifetime ago.

DwD 0348: Coasting On Track - Allowed or Not One of the often quoted things that may have first come from Ross Bentley’s “Speed Secrets” book series is that you should never be coasting on track, but should either be on the gas pedal/throttle or on the brake. Ross has been on the podcast several times and we have discussed this aspect of racing wit…
 
GHIT 0347: Jeremy Hall from Monkey House Racing Over the past few years, we had met Jeremy at many events, but it was more in passing. Jeremy usually races with his team called Monkey House Racing, but for the Pittsburgh event he was racing with the Skunk Oil Racing team and our team in a 1999 BMW 3 series, an E36 for all the cool dudes. Unfortunat…
 
DwD 346: Track Selection: The Impact on Learning On this episode of Dominating with Dawson, we wanted to discuss an aspect of racing education that can often be overlooked.

T…
 
GHIT 0342: The Tyler Stank After having better answers to several of our Dominating with Dawson’s, it was only appropriate that we invited him onto the podcast. We first met Tyler while iRacing and have since been paying attention as he has begun driving in the real world as well. His middle name really is Ayrton and there can be no better reason t…
 
DwD 0341: The difference between building a car and developing a car Race Weekend Shuffle in place: We have talked a lot about building a race car and prepping a car for the track. But that Is only the beginning and just when you thought it was over, it has only begun. The best way to think about it is that you now have a ticket to enter the event …
 
GHIT 0340: Getting the Most Out of Instruction at a Track Day or HPDE etc Track time is a precious commodity. It is often difficult to fit into your schedule, it takes a significant amount to prep for a weekend (both the car and the driver and often simply getting to the track). It is also not free to attend the event. We try to give some examples …
 
GHIT 0339: Late to Grid Podcast Host Bill Snow Our paths have crossed seemingly many times, but we have never met until now.

We thought it might be a good thing t…
 
GHIT 0336: NASA’s TREC Endurance racing series with Bryan Lingruen As you know, we love endurance racing.

NASA has recently started an endurance racing series to compliment their sprint racing and HPDE weekend events. The TREC series currently races a…
 
DwD 0335: Bought Not Built? One of best things about racing is how welcoming racing has been to us and in general to everyone we see at the track. One related aspect of this is the application of a built not bought aspect to racing that is often used in jest, but can divide the paddock, either by accident or intent. However, just because you or you…
 
GHIT 0334: How to Test Your Car at the Track with Scott Robertson We often hear how important it is to test your car prior to racing.

DwD 0330: CPR and Racing – Correct, Pause, and Recover) CPR is typically referred to in a medical emergency.

The thought behind the acronym is that when your car gets out of shape or out of control on a track, one of the things that should be t…
 
GHIT 0329: Lemons Rally Wrap Up of the Recent Four Corners Rally with Jeff Stobbs Rally Master Jeff Stobbs returns to summarize the recent Four Corners Rally.

GHIT 0325: Race Review – Alex on Our Back to Back Race Weekends at PittRace with AER and Lemons Alex Levinson drove both weekends for the team from the Skunk Oil Racing/Garage Heroes In Training team and missed our earlier reviews, so he gets to go over both weekends’ trials and tribulations.

DwD 0323: The Return of Two Feet In We return to the topic of two feet in to make sure everyone is on the same page and why we would be strong supporters of knowing when it is time to employ this technique. The key aspect of this is to get your feet off of the throttle or gas pedal and press down hard on the clutch and brake if there are three peda…
