Everyone here at Bennington Motorsports would like to congratulate all the drivers on their performance at Nationals! It certainly wasn't an easy week for anyone, but we truely enjoyed meeting all the drivers from other regions. It's the upbeat attitude of all these drivers, their families & support crews that makes NASA a great group to work with!

I want to personally thank & commend the drivers in & near the BENMS compound for the risky last minute decision to swap all the cars over to rain tires. It was 7 cars & 12.5 minutes of agony for us, but when the sky opened and began to POUR, we were just as relieved as the drivers knowing the right decision was made!

To all the out of region drivers we had the pleasure of meeting:
If you are ever here in the midwest and need ANYTHING, you guys know where to find us! Hopefully our travels will take us to locations near you guys so we can drop in and say hi!

Although the Nationals experience was a trying one, and we are still recovering from the exhaustion of the week, not to mention the haul home, I am already loking forward to next year! We will be doing our best to come up with ideas that will make the BENMS paddock even more welcoming and usefull for all Spec drivers in attendance!

Hopefully next year we will have more than 3 days back at the shop following Nationals to prep for our next race weekend. Unfortunately, this year that just isn't the case. So to all of our Midwest drivers... I'll see you in a couple days!

Thanks again to everyone who made this past week such a great experience!

& the crew of Bennington Motorsports.

Yes, you guys may have a future as a Nascar pit crew!

I'd also like to thank Nick for both help in tearing down the motor in tech, and putting my motor back together after the tear down. I'm sure he would have rather been back on the road, rather than spinning wrenches after the weekend was "done". The car will be in a 4.5 hour enduro Friday!

It is a credit to you guys, that all the cars entered were running to start the championship race!

Congrtulations to Tyler, Eric and Neal for a hard fought race. Congratulations to all the 944Spec competitors at Nationals. It is a great event to be a part of regardless of finishing position.
Good job to all drivers for avoiding the carnage that racing in the rain can create.
The SpeedcastTV webcast missed all the excitement of Neals charge through the field and Erics spin and charge. They spent most of the webcast on SpecE30 but that was a great race as well.
Cant it to see all the footage.
