The Inside Track

by Rocky Johnson, the Maverick Region President

In a bit of a twist, this month's topic is not

about Porsches or even the Maverick Region,

but rather about that good old American

icon, the Corvette.

As it happened, our normal summer

sojourn to Breckenridge, Colorado coincided

with a huge gathering of Corvettes that lasted

several days. Apparently the cutoff for registration

was 500 cars, but another 100 showed up as non-official participants.

This could sound familiar to some Parade goers.

As I talked with folks around town and at their various venues,

I was struck with the notion that a car guy is a car guy, no matter

what the marque. To be fair (and politically correct), there were

a substantial number of car gals and car kids in attendance as well.

As an impartial observer, it was interesting to note the spirited

debates regarding the merits of old vs. new, hardtop vs. convertible,

stock, OEM restorations vs. improved or upgraded parts. If

you could have inserted air cooled vs. water cooled, rear engine vs.

mid or front engine, etc. it could just as easily been a Maverick

happy hour.

The grand finale had all the cars lined up on Main Street. I

must admit, even for a Porsche guy, it was quite a sight to behold.

There was everything from a '53 that looked like it had just rolled

off the assembly line, to later models that had been transformed

into fire breathing machines with glow in the dark flame jobs.

Unfortunately, on the day of the big event, July 29th, the temperature

broke the record and set an all time high for the day of 84

degrees! On the positive side, there were enough cold beverages to

sustain everyone.

As the event ended and the Vettes were leaving town, a poster

caught my eye that there was going to be a gathering of Mini

Coopers the next weekend. Although I haven't met any of them

yet, I'll bet they prove to be just as spirited in their discussions of

old vs. new, etc. In fact it's rumored they are having screenings of

both the original and the newer versions of " The Italian Job" to

keep both schools happy.

I guess the bottom line is, no matter what the marque, gatherings

such as these always produce a great deal of "Car"maraderie.

From The Driver’s Seat

by Wendy Shoffit, Slipstream Managing Editor

As I write this article, a dear friend of mine

(and many of yours), Lanean Hughes, is

dealing with the news that she’s developed

lung cancer. It seems so trivial now to get the issue

out, but I know that wouldn’t be what she would

want. She has invested so much of her life giving

to this club that anything short of fabulous just

wouldn’t do. So, here we are. Please send your positive thoughts and

prayers her way as she battles this insidious disease. If anyone in the

world has enough spunk and tenacity to beat it, you’d better believe

it’s Lanean! Hug your loved ones and tell them how much you love

them. Godspeed, Lanean. We love you!

On a bit of a lighter note, we have a winner from last month’s

Napoleon Dynamite look alike contest. Taking first place is none

other than Tom Snodgrass (#11), closely followed by my hubby,

James Shoffit (#3), who swears he was JUST like Napoleon in

high school. The winning prize is a Jumbo Sized tater tots. If you

didn’t just snicker (even a little), seriously... watch the movie.

Anyway, I don’t know how much YOU read on the internet,

but I don’t explore it as much as I’d like. I could spend 24 hours

a day for the next 7 years and never read even all the *interesting*

stuff. Fortunately for me, James reads way more than I do. Some

links he’s given by friends and co-workers, others he finds all

on his own. He recently sent me a link to an entertaining,

insightful, cleverly-written article about why people often behave

the way they do. The author is David Wong and the title of

the article is “Inside the Monkeysphere.” (The direct link is for

those of you who have some free time and want to read the whole

thing.) Basically, it’s all about the simple fact that you care the

most about those who are closest to you in your life (aka “inside

your monkeysphere”).

It’s so much easier to yell at someone from the safety of your

car to “Learn how to drive, moron!” than yell at a friend who

pushed the wrong button on an elevator. Both people made

mistakes, but you care more about your friend than you do the

anonymous person on the freeway. This friend is inside the

monkeysphere. It’s not a bad thing... it just is the way it is. We

know all about the goings on in our own monkeysphere and

don’t care AS much about things that are outside. The article is

way more clever than I am and explains it far better. You can read

it to get a laugh, insight, or just to spend time doing something

other than the things you REALLY need to get done. I laughed a

lot reading it and felt like I understood a little more about society

than I did before. Using simple terms to understand people out

there makes sense to me and helps to keep things in perspective.

At least for today, I’m looking out from the driver’s seat in a

little different way. Read it, don’t read it... it’s your choice. Either

way I hope that you will join us at an event soon and maybe we

can become part of each other’s monkeysphere.

Exploring the West

by Teri Davis

Agroup of Porsches and Mini Coopers gathered on July 9th

to explore some of the territory west of the Metroplex.

They saw some strange, interesting, and beautiful sights.

They tell me it was a tough rally. There were, indeed, a few

instances of having to understand the route rules to find the way.

But it must not have been too tough for almost everyone figured

it out and found the route. I know they did because the answers

to the questions could only be found on the route.

I'm pleased to report that I heard several comments about the

wonderful country roads and saw a lot of smiling faces at the

Time Trial and Autocross - What’s it Really About?

by Ray Nannis

As the heat vapors rise off the track at the end of the day, I asked

myself what were the August 5-6, 2006, Maverick Region

Porsche Time Trial #5 and Autocross #5 about? Well, mostly it

was about 104 degrees. I arrived on Saturday an hour and a half early

as the course was just being completed. It is always exciting driving to

these high speed events, which is something new to me this year. This

was an intimate event compared to the other events I have attended.

On Saturday we only had 20 drivers which made things go by fast

(some drivers were faster then others and most faster than me). The

high speed course was the longest I had ever seen. Now, I have only

seen three so that may not be impressive, but even experienced

members, like my father, Joel Nannis, had to be shown the course. For

those of you who know him for some reason he seems to be the butt

of many jokes so I had to take advantage of the fact he did not know

the course and asked for a new instructor. (He jokily replied that

would also mean I would need to get a new car to drive since I was

using his.)

Because of the low attendance each corner worker had to be by

himself or herself, but the working times seemed very short. Most

drivers stayed on course and few cones were hit. As a driver I really

enjoyed the event because of the amount of “seat time.” Each driver

received two sets of five laps on the early run and three laps in the

second series. This was great for an inexperienced driver. Somehow the

corner work stations went by quickly and I felt like I was in the car for

a long time. We completed the entire event by 1:00pm.

After the Time Trial most of us took a trip to Braum's for lunch.

After lunch, it was back to the track to set up for the Autocross. Kevin

Hardison had already picked up all the cones from the speed event so

the set up actually went very quickly. Bryan Bell designed the AX

course and led the set up team. He almost dumped most of us out of

the back of the pickup each time he took off from a stop. He must have

still thought it was his 911. We were done by just a little after 3:00pm

and then it was to the hotel and the pool. Wow, that felt good! My dad

and I stayed at the Executive Inn and the pool felt great. Dinner at the

Italian Restaurant was fifteen of us reviewing the day and enjoying

each others’ company.

Sunday came and we got a bit of a reprieve from the heat. It was

still hot but, only in the upper 90's with an occasional nice breeze.

Only about 26 drivers showed as we were competing with a BMW

event and Porsche Parade, not to mention the heat that may

have run off a few less brave members. The title of the course was

“15 anniversary” and the “Toilet Bowl.” We were informed that it was

Bryan and Andrea Bell's 15th anniversary that week. This obviously

lead to more than a few comments about the title but we found there

was no relationship between the shape of the track and the quality of

the marriage. This was a fast track with an optional straight run with

a 90 degree turn or a long wide run with a wide turn one, I found that

corner one could not be as fast as I originally thought as I made a full

360 spin wiping out about 5 cones. I really enjoyed this course because

again we had the ability for a lot of seat time, five timed runs and

three fun runs for anyone who wished. We only had to work corners

one time but this time most of us did get a partner. I got to work

with Denny Payne, and I find it interesting just to get to know

another club member.

So the question again is, “what was this event really about?”

It wasn't really the heat, it wasn't about the time each of us made (ok

maybe it was about the time for some), and it really wasn't even about

the cars. It was about a great group of people having fun and enjoying

each others’ company and one of the friendliest competitions I have

ever been around. It was joking and laughing at ourselves and each

other. It was about families spending some time together. Darron

Shaffer's father, Ted, was there. He worked and appeared to be having

a great time. Bryan and Andrea's son, Conner, was there with his

basketball, which made it about trying to wear that kid out. Finally,

for me, it was about finding a way to enjoy spending time with my

father. When I was in grade school I remember many times coming

out to events, but then college got in the way, chiropractic school,

starting a business, marriage and the list goes on and on. For some reason

I never got involved with many of the club events other than the

Fathers’ Day picnic. The reality is over the last few years I would say I

have not really been involved with my father’s life more than an

occasional family dinner. What this event and this season of high

speed events represents is the first time my father and I have had a

father and son weekend since the 1987 Parade. It has offered a

bonding experience as an adult with someone very important to me.

As someone who doesn't own Porsche yet, what I recognize is that the

events are really about relationships. Each time I get to meet someone

new, and get to know a little about them. I find friends, get closer to

some and meet new friends. Most important I found a great way to

build the important relationship between father and son.

Murder Mystery Dinner Theater

by Grant Imsande

Thirty-five Maverick Region Members and guests turned out

on July 15th for " Write Between the Eyes" a presentation by

Labniappe Productions' Lone Star Murder Mysteries.

The cast in the production: Marshall Jim Courtright,

Catastrophe Kate, Buffalo Joe, Homicidal Hank, and Miss Sissy

May Prissbottom put on lively performances involving lots of

laughs and audience participation.

Audience members with the following attributes: ringing cell

phones, fruity drinks, spaghetti strap tops, slightly balding pates,

Catastrophe out to avenge her dead husband, a 'closet'

dime novel author by the (pen)name of 'Dirk' who looks nothing

like her name, a railroad tycoon with questionable 'ethics', and a

sheriff caught in the middle of these nere-do-wells? The Maverick

Mystery dinner - of course!

I've been a mystery fan for years - just never seem to find the

time to sign up. So I was delighted to see the Mystery Dinner on

the calendar. Such Fun!!!

Meeting new people and catching-up with others, are two of

my favorite things about Maverick social events - and this was no

exception. I joined Betsy and Grant Imsande, and their friend

Jean, to be the 'fourth' in the “Garage Sale” team. How our group

got that name is still a mystery to me, but we hit it off instantly

and had to remind ourselves to read up on the plot before the

play started. I was delighted to see half a dozen people I haven't

seen in months.

The theatre group that put on the play was brilliant!

Performed in a small area, it was like being in the play - more for

some than others. There was shootin' and hollerin' and carrying

on, and eventually - oh my! - murder - with lots of laughter,

general hurrah and 'audience' participation (I decided that, even

The winning “Garage Sale” team of Grant and Betsy Imsande,

Pat Benson, and Grant & Betsy’s friend, Jean

During the presentation, six teams of Maverick Region super

sleuth detectives (Water Cooled, 3 Teenagers and a Wasser

Pumper, Po Po Bustlers, Microft, Garage Sale and Mavericks) set

out to solve the baffling case concerning the murder of a

railroad tycoon, Horace Grimsley. The teams utilized incredibly

insightful questions such as: “Was Buffalo Joe any relation to

Buffalo Bob Smith?” to crack the case.

Has anyone mentioned before that Tracey and Ed Gross do

a tremendous job with social events? If so then this outing was

not exception. Everyone had a great time. Thanks again to

Tracey and Ed!

Bob Lewis trying on Buffalo Joe’s hat. Where’d his head go?

though she was the one that went off to jail, Catastrophe Kate

(aptly named) was my favorite character.)

When the play was done, we had only 10 minutes to ask each

character just one question - and it couldn't be “did you do it” or

“did____ do it”. I'm not sure what the other teams asked - but we

asked the Sheriff what size the bullet was - which turned out to be

a good question to ask.

Only two teams solved the mystery, but I think it's fair to say

- we all had a grand time!

Many thanks to Tracey and Ed for another fabulous party!

(When's the next one?) Also thanks to Wendy and the other

participants that took pictures amidst the laughter and mayhem!

Texas Rangers Game

by Wendy Shoffit

Take me out to the ball game... Take me out with my friends. Buy

me some ice cream and Budweiser. I want yellow to win the dot

race. Let me root root root for the Rangers. I really hate the

Yankees. Cause it’s five, ten, fifteen Mavericks out at the old Ball Game.

Okay, so creating new lyrics to replace Jack Norworth and Albert

Von Tilzer’s “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” isn’t my strong suit.

Don’t worry, I won’t quit my day job. *grin* I just couldn’t start out

the article with, “It was a hot day in Texas...” We all KNOW how hot

it’s been. Surprisingly, though, it was pretty nice that evening. Tracey

Gross arranged for some great seats for us, not facing the sun, in a nice

shady spot on the Lexus Club Terrace Level (aka NOT the nosebleed

seats!). Ice cream in one hand, cotton candy in the other, lemonade

on the way... Hanging out with some cool friends. It was nice.

The game itself was a nail biter. The Yankees scored 2, then we

tied, then we were up by 2 and they came back to move ahead by 2.

Then we scored 3 more runs to regain the lead by 1. Then, in the 9th

inning, they came back with 2 more runs to which we couldn’t

answer. In a heart breaker, the final score was Yankees 8, Rangers 7.

I’m convinced that rooting for the Yankees is easy. It’s rooting for

everyone else that takes dedication!

That didn’t stop us, though, from having a fun time together. It’s

a shame more Mavericks couldn’t make it to the game. Hopefully that

won’t deter Ed and Tracey from coming up with new, clever, fun ideas

for us all. Thanks for the fun!

The Eagle is Landing

Photo by Richard Miller

by Richard Miller

There I was, tearing down a 2000 foot straight shifting into 6th,

hitting the rev limiter, then heavy braking into a left over crest

and a diving right, leading to hard left…. Well not quite as I was

in David and Linda Cook's 4WD pickup bumping along the rough

graded track at 5 MPH. Eagle Canyon Motorsports Park is well under

way and looks to become a great race track. And here's a shot of what

the down stream side of that left over crest into the diving right looks

like now:

Eagle Canyon Motorsports Park

Lots of dirt being moved (500,000 tons so far) and as you hopefully

can tell, lots of elevation change.

I just heard of this new race track being built up in Wise County,

just west of Sanger off of I35 a few weeks ago. Of course, if I had been

paying attention, I would have seen the interview in the Fort Worth

Star Telegram last March with Rob Lay and the Cooks. So I had to go

visit. After all, according to David Cook, the track is using only about

200 acres of the over 400 acres they own. The rest of the area may

become off road trails for motorcycles and other off road vehicles.

Maybe I could fit a performance rally course in there. Or at least a

RallyCross course.

Well, what I found was a couple of dedicated race people and

their team working very hard in the Texas heat to bring a new track to

the area. Of course, we have all had the experience of new tracks being

planned and even having the rough grading done only to have the

track fade away. But this one feels different. David and Linda Cook are

dedicated to bringing a high quality FIA approved track to the area.

The lime treatment of the dirt is now finished and the base course is

about to start. (In fact by the time this makes into print, the base

course may be complete.) And then PAVE, PAVE, PAVE! The track

should be ready this fall. The only caveat seems to be how much time

the Cooks will have to be away from the track to get Linda's Corvette

Z06, named Shania, ready for the next 24 Hours of Daytona. I did

mention they were racers did I not? Actually, car preparation should

not take much time as Shania is actually being prepped by Nick Cole,

son of Edward Cole, previous CEO of General Motors. Nick is one of

the co-drivers when the Eagles Canyon Race Car heads for Daytona!!!

According to David, the location of the track was chosen because

of the elevation changes. As most of us know, Texas tends to be on the

flat side. But Eagles Canyon Motorsports Park is sited on actual hills

and canyons. The course has been laid out to take advantage of this.

Those racers used to the banking of Texas Motor Speedway being

considered an elevation change may be surprised while those who

have raced at Hallett will be pleased. I take that back, every one will be

Happy Hour at Razzoo’s

by Dennis Chamberlain

New faces seem to appear whenever we have our happy

hour at Razzoo's in Irving. This time, one of them (or a

group, I should say) belonged to Pam, Carl, and Taylor

Perpich, who had recently purchased Mike and Maria Stafford's

Porsche 911. All five of them came to the happy hour together,

and there's nothing happier than new Porsche owners.

Monda Degan and Pat Chambers

Then there were Rocky and Judy Johnson - well, they're

not new faces, but you should have seen their faces after

they downed a jumbo mountain of Razzoo's ice cream and

whipped cream. I am here to attest that they had no help -

despite several unselfish offers to lend them a hand (or a

spoon). And they still manage to stay thin. So much for Atkins.

It was good to see Wayne and Pat Chambers, the Scudder

family, Bob and Sarah Jandrucko, Steven and April Dodd, Dan

and Nan Nowak, and many others who don't regularly attend.

For our September 21st happy hour, we're heading back to

Cantina Laredo - hope to see you there!

Happy Anniversary!

Welcome, New Members!

You have just joined one of the best and most active PCA

events, while others focus on just show and shine concours

events. Maverick Region is a club that focuses on providing

our members with the tools necessary to have the ultimate in

driving experiences.

You will notice that our region has many Time Trials,

Autocrosses, and Drivers’ Education (DE) events (in addition

for quite some time. We have some of the finest instructors in

the country. Make sure you take full advantage of the driving

experiences we have to offer.

Racing is not ALL we focus on, though. If racing doesn’t

suit you, we have monthly happy hours, three monthly lunch

gatherings, regular dinner socials, frequent driving tours on

some fabulous roads in and around Texas, driving rallies (fun

for the whole family), and regular opportunities to support

our perpetual charity, the Hope Shelter.
