Had a great day testing and qualifying with the #88 DriveGear Racing “Ladies plus Jay” team at the American Endurance Racing #NJMP event! Doing some simple prep and getting ready for tomorrow! #becauseracecar #raceallthethings #ladydriven #chickswithslicks #aer
@christinaylam Installing helmet communications with critical Mac & Cheese duct tape! #becauseracecar #raceallthethings #ladydriven #chickswithslicks
I’m convinced the car doesn’t like me… I was in for the first stint and almost done when I couldn’t get it into gear. Managed to limp it into the pits for repair. Clutch master being replaced and hoping that fixes it! #pressonregardless #becauseracecar #raceallthethings #ladydriven
Day 2! Starting from the rear of the pack, but it’s gonna be another hot 9 hour race. I’m in for the first stint, hoping all the wrinkles got ironed out yesterday! #becauseracecar #raceallthethings #ladydriven #chickswithslicks #aer #njmp
Just chillin on the apex while driving the #88 DriveGear Racing/Shift Up LLC #e30 in the AER event last month at NJMP Lightning. The car was a blast while it ran!!! #becauseracecar #raceallthethings #ladydriven #efilogics #jnaperformance #ruges #subaru #subiegirls #azpinstalls #bmw #aer #americanenduranceracing

She completed her run…made up a lot of laps!!!
Lynn is suited up and ready take over for Chis! Girl power!
Oh no! More trouble!
Race Update: I started, was running well until I had to drive off track in a rough spot to avoid a “situation” with an overtaking car. The strut top was damaged and we had to do a quick repair behind the wall. Luckily it didn’t impact too badly since there was a full course yellow during the repair. I stayed in and went back out… the gas pedal broke. I stayed out as long as I could, set my fastest lap and then the gas pedal fell off completely and I had to pit for repairs during the driver change.
That car really, really doesn’t like me. #pressonregardless
So uh… yeah. My second stint following Lynn started out rough when we had to push start the car out of the pits. 1.5 laps in the car broke up at more than 50% throttle. Came in, pit repairs, sent out again and barely made it out of T1. Nursed it in, behind the wall and repairs started. The ECU looks to have failed. New ECU and I was sent out again to gain as much time as I could. Set the fastest lap of the day so far then handed off the car to Jay for the final stint. Less the half the starting field is running right now, let’s bring it home! #becauseracecar #raceallthethings #ladydriven #chickswithslicks #pressonregardless
The tired little warrior! Took the checkered both days and survived 18 hours of racing(minus the repair time) to finish 25th overall! #becauseracecar #raceallthethings #ladydriven #chickswithslicks
