SPROCKETS: No Summer Slowdown
By David Robertson, Region President
There is no doubt that summer has arrived. With
temps in the triple digits, you may be tempted to
hunker down in the cool confines of your home.
Don’t be tempted -- get out and take a drive!
Have you seen those videos of Porsche testing
new models out in Death Valley? They don’t
seem to be affected and North Texas is like a Fall
weather in comparison
You may think that club events slow down in these
summer months, but in July there is something going on
every week. In fact, I will be driving up to the Porsche
Parade this month to do much more driving, where I
will I arrive with hundreds of other PCA members from
all over North America. This year’s Parade is relatively
close to home in Missouri, so we can drive up in our
911 without facing the “shame” of attending in a rental
car as we did last year. Shipping is not really an option
with my daily driver, and we just didn’t have the time
to drive to Spokane last year, although most people did
and tell me that the journey to Spokane was as much
fun as Parade itself. I must say that there is a bit of
an element missing when you attend Porsche Parade
without a Porsche! I will let you know how it all goes
next month, but I am 100% sure that Parade is going
to be a lot of fun, and we may have a record attendance
of Maverick Region members this year!
Along with Parade this month there are a couple
of lunches, a Mavs and Mochas featuring the
Porsche Cayenne, an Autocross, a happy hour and
dinner, Motoring Mavs at Mayos, and a Tech Session
about tires. If there is a rare weekend when an event is
not planned, there is always an impromptu get-together
organized by someone through one of our social
The Maverick board members are always mindful
of overlapping events or scheduling at certain times.
However, sometimes due to availability of venues, or
more likely, just not having enough days in the month,
scheduling conflicts arise. We do everything possible
to accommodate everyone, but if someday you have to
choose between two events that you want to attend,
just know that our amazing board members are
always coming up with additional options and ways to
accommodate all of our members. Our events are some
of the best-attended of any region in the country, and in
my opinion, having more choices is better than having
MAV OF THE MONTH: Landon Stogner
Landon Stogner recently celebrated his two-year
anniversary with PCA in June. After purchasing his
2010 Porsche 911 Cabriolet, he not only began
attending many Maverick events, but quickly stepped
up to volunteer
with a wide range
of club tasks,
such as parking
members for social
events and sharing
photos and articles
You’ll often see
Landon and his
two sons, Corbin
and Brady, working
as a team to
volunteer at events.
Landon has taken
on the task of
for the Region and has some great ideas for engaging
club members. Thank you Landon, we look forward to
seeing what you have in store for us!

June Mavs&Mochas: A Really Good Box of Chocolates
By Olga Taylor

Left: The author’s SC, Baby at the SC M&M event.
To paraphrase Forrest Gump,
every Mavs & Mochas is like a
box of really good chocolates.
In our case, you’ll never know
how many awesome P-cars
Such was the case on June 9, 2018
at Mavs & Mochas celebrating the
40th anniversary of the 911SC. With
over 150 Porsches in attendance,
this “box of chocolates” was
incredibly good—it included a vast
array of years, models, colors, and
Bill Orr (thanks) exhibited his
charming doughnut-toting self and
super early set-up for early-bird
Mavs. So, how did it go? M & M
was better than great! Not only
were attendees delighted by lots
of beautiful Porsches, there were
throngs (yes, throngs) of Porsche
enthusiasts. Newcomers and
veterans bonded over solutions to
repair problems and frustration
over vexing recurring ones. A
There was lots of eye candy to
go around, and most of us simply
strolled around enjoying the P-car
ambience, which included a silver
Porsche reimagined by Singer!
Ogled by all, lots of us were simply
mesmerized, stuck in a good place.
This M & M served as a preparty
to the fabulous 70th
Anniversary celebration at Park
Place Porsche. It exceeded all
expectations and I thank my fellow
SC owners who showed up for our
40th Anniversary celebration. All in
all, Sportscar Together Day 2018
was legendary and a good time was
had by all.

Park Place Porsche: 70 years of Sportscar Together
By Landon Stogner
Bill Middleton, David Tierney & Zane Moore
They say you’re never alone when driving a Porsche, even
if you’re the only one in the car, because when you’re in a
Porsche you’re part of something bigger -- you’re part of
all of us.
June 8, 1948 was a special
day in Porsche history. That’s
the day the 356 Roadster
received its street certification,
which was the starting line to a
whole legacy of sports cars that
has now spanned 70 years.
To honor that great achievement,
Porsche hosted parties around the world, known as
Sportscar Together Day. Right here in our very own
backyard, we had several events around the Metroplex to
celebrate such a great accolade, one of which was held at
Park Place Porsche in Dallas. Our club’s great partnership
with the dealership allowed us to team up to host a Dallas
area Sportscar Together Day. Our
great club members and assembled a
great collection of cars to represent
the 70 years of Porsche, which
included the 356s of the 1950s and
1960s, as well as the 911s from the
late 1960s through today’s 2018
model. I was so honored to be asked
to represent the 2010 year model
with my 997 Cabriolet. It was such
a great sight to see how the cars have
changed through the decades. My very own PCA Junior,
Brady, noticed small differences in the side view mirrors
between the 60s and 70s. I told him to really soak it in
ecause it’s not every day you get to see a display
like this first hand.
If the great display of cars wasn’t enough,
Park Place provided festivities such as music
from a live band, great eats that included
bratwurst from Degenhardt’s Brat Haus, and
nitrogen-frozen ice cream to stay cool. To help
keep us all refreshed and comfortable throughout
the day there were different vendors providing
summertime adult beverages from Monkey

of your 70th
Shoulder Whiskey, Unlawful Brewery, and Reyka Vodka, as we sat
on outdoor patio-style sectional sofas. This event was so much fun
for Porsche fans of all ages. This was a great example how a sports
car can bring us together, and another way we are Driving Friendships.

Kruder’s Cars & Conversation
By Bill Kruder
photos courtesy of James St Peter
This month’s encounter took a
different twist than most, as I
had just met Alan Lage, who had
recently bought Michael Baynton’s
1974 911. It’s like the six degrees of
Kevin Bacon. Well, Alan suggested
that we have an “impromptu,”
which, for those of you who
haven’t heard, happen on random
Saturdays, which we post only on
our Mavs & Mochas
FB page. Of course, I
said! Why don’t you
pick the location and
I will post something.
Alan then begins to tell
me he knows this guy
who owns a cool donut
shop near White Rock
Lake. Well as they say,
the rest is history, as we
had the “impromptu”
there with about 20-
25 cars. I strike up the
usual conversation with
the donut entrepreneur,
asked about his car, what
he does and proceeds to
tell me he is . . . well, you
So here is the next in my
series of “conversations”
I would like to share
with you . . .
James St Peter, member since 2018,
Owner 1997 911 (993) Cab
Bill Kruder: So are you originally
James St Peter: Believe it or not I was
raised and born right here. I was
born in Richardson then we moved
to Plano. I graduated from Plano
Senior High School in 1991.
BK: And where did you go to college?
JSP: I went to Texas Tech and got a
degree in Marketing.
BK: So how did you meet your wife
JSP: We met after college. I was out
with my friend Shane at Mic’s on
Greenville, and Shane’s sister and
her group of friends met us there.
It was totally random. I asked her
out a week or so later and we dated
for about five years before we got
married in 2003.
BK: I know you just recently joined
the club but I understand you were
a PCA member once before?
JSP: I was originally in the club about
ten years ago and dropped out; I
was entering the unknown world
of starting a business and time and
focus was going there. Then about
a month ago, I heard you guys
were having an “impromptu” at
Hypnotic Donuts near White Rock
Lake and decided to attend. As soon
as I was around all those Porsches
and people I realized how much I
had missed it. I re-joined as soon as
I got home.
BK: So how did you get interested in
JSP: Thinking back I am pretty
sure the 928 chase scene with Tom
Cruise in Risky Business got the
car in the back of my mind. Plus
the iconic James Dean and Little
Bastard poster and story added
some curiosity. From there I had
always noticed them and their
iconic silhouette on the
road. However, nothing
hooks you to a Porsche
like driving one and
that was my case. I was
driving around with my
friend Wade one day
and we saw a 911 sitting
outside Hi Line Motors.
We went in and I told
the salesman, “My boss
told me I can get any car
but he has to see it first.
Can I borrow this for
two hours?” He agreed
and we just cruised
around Dallas in a ‘95
911 Cabriolet for a few
hours. We returned and
I said, “Well this sucks,
he did not approve it,
sorry.” The salesman
knew we never had my
boss look at it and just
gave us a smile.
Fast forward ten years later: it was
pretty much because of my wife
Amy, then girlfriend, that sealed the
deal. Her dad, Carl Shore, owned
Central Porsche Audi in the 70s
up in Wichita, Kansas. He has a
beautiful red ‘88 Targa with a whale
tale that he keeps in the garage.
When we got married he loaned us
his ‘88 Cab for the wedding. Once I
was officially family, he let me (still
does) drive when we visit. I loved
driving that ‘88 Targa so much,
then hearing all the great stories,
good and bad, from Carl about
his experience with Porsches and
recalling how much fun Wade and I
had driving around that 993 Cab, I
finally pulled the trigger and bought
a 993 Cab for myself.
BK: So what was your first Porsche?
JSP: It’s the 1997 Cab; we bought it
about 12 years ago.
BK: So let’s get back to you and
JSP: Well I guess I was always the
kid or the guy that was restless and
doing odd jobs for money. After
spending 18 years in the corporate
world, we decided to try something
new and interesting. Well we looked
around and thought “there are
donut shops but they are all the
same.” We had heard about this
donut shop in Portland, Oregon
called Voodoo Donut, so we made
a trip to check it out. We liked the
whole vibe and eventually talked to
them about franchising, but they
did not want to do that. However,
I really felt this was something the
market wanted so I continued to
BK: So this was something you knew
JSP: Heck no (laughing)! I ate
donuts but that was all I knew
about the business. But my years
in corporate taught me a lot about
establishing and growing a business.
James and Amy driving off in dad’s 88
I concluded the restaurant industry
was basically run by two type of
people: chefs who do not know
how to run a business, and business
executives who do not know how to
produce good food. I had to figure
out how to meld the two.
BK: So . . .
JSP: I was still working my corporate
job so there was no hurry, but I
knew I wanted to do something,
so about two years later, 2010, we
started selling donuts.
BK: So Hypnotic Donuts is that old
JSP: Technically yes; we became an
LLC and we started selling donuts
out of the back of a car on weekends
in 2010. We were selling out in five
minutes, so we knew we had to
take the next step. From there we
managed to convince a pizza place
to let us sell donuts on Saturdays
and Sundays till 10 am using their
storefront; mind you we had no
signs -- it was word of mouth. We
were having good success with
this but I was working five days in
corporate and then selling donuts
on the weekend. So it was seven
days a week without a break for
one and a half years. I knew we
could not sustain this style and had
to either be all in or all out on the
BK: When did you open the store?
JSP: We were
selling our donuts
up around Preston
in Dallas and a
we look at a
White Rock Lake,
so in 2012
walked into the
shop where we
are housed now
and asked if they
wanted out. They said yes. I was
stunned because now I had to act on
it. We took the plunge and opened
here on Garland Road (and realized
soon after we opened that we had
a lot more seven-day-a-week work
weeks ahead of us.)
BK: I have to tell you the first time
I had a Hypnotic Donut was up in
JSP: Oh yes, we decided to expand,
looking for small places that shared
the same vibe of laid back people
that want to throw back to simpler
times, and we opened our second
location there about four years ago.
BK: Let’s talk about this “vibe”?
JSP: I like the whole mid-century
60s and 70s style, so we want
that feel in all of our stores, yet
each one noticeably different. Our
donut shops are the hippie-sittingin-the-basement
feel, while one
ice cream shop is a retro soda
fountain and the other is a bright
BK: And as we speak we are sitting
in Hypnotic Emporium?
JSP: Yep, we decided that the other
thing that was missing was good
old fashion ice cream and candy. So
about two years ago we opened next
door to the donut shop in Dallas.
This May we opened another
Hypnotic Emporium in Mansfield.
And once again to think that after
a chance meeting with Alan, and
being friends with Michael, it would
lead to yet another great story.
Always remember: we are “driving

Autobahn: 70th Celebration

Carey Spreen, David Robertson & 360 West
Autobahn hosted their 70th celebration event away
from the dealership at Heart of the Ranch at Clearfork,
a great venue. The parking lot was full of Porsches
from all generations and before heading towards the
music emanating from the forest It was great to soak
in the view.
Of course, the theme of the celebration was all
about Porsche. A combination of old and new were
on display including one of the most beautiful 356’s I
have ever seen and our own Clay and Bettie Perrine’s
new (to them) 1970 914 6. There were early 911’s, to
the latest model 911 GT2 RS and a 918 thrown in for

Autocross Event 4: Mineral Wells Mirrorcross
By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
The morning of May 20 started out with serious
whiteout thunder and lightning extreme Texas style
rainstorm for all who were making the trek to Mineral
Wells. Top speed on the commute was barely 50 mph, and
cars were off the road everywhere. The weather prognosis
was bleak, so some turned around and went home. By
9:15 it was starting to clear; we ended up being able to
run the special dual course Mirrorcross event despite the

Maverick Tech Session Series: Engine Issues, Fact and Fiction

May Tour Recap: Aloha Maverick Style
By Mark Pitarresi, Tours Co-Chair
photos by author and Jim Hirsch
Our third tour of the year, “Aloha Maverick Style
- The Ray Roberts Lake Tour” was Saturday, May 19.
When I rolled into the parking lot of Grayson College in
Van Alstyne, there were already two cars eagerly waiting
to get their Maverick tour fix. Soon after getting set up,
the parking lot was full of friendly Porsche owners.
As usual, the beginning of our tours are pretty much
like our Mavs & Mochas events. Everyone catches up
with their friends, and meet new members while waiting
for departure. This tour was 90.4 miles and two hours
of drive time. We had 87 Porsches, 153 people, and 8
juniors (under age 18). After everyone was signed in,
we started the Drivers’ Briefing, explaining our rules
and how we would stage to leave.
At my group’s rest stop, I got a chance to meet Bill
Beck and look at his stunning blue 1967 912 Outlaw.
The engine was beautifully detailed and it had a
3-liter flat 6 out of a 911 SC, built to be a driver. I am
sure everyone one is looking forward to seeing more
of this car.
Our tour ended at the Hula Hut restaurant in Little
Elm. I wish we had a Hula Hut for every tour we do.
They really did not miss a beat. The food and service
were awesome! Wake Boarders at Hydros Wake Park
next door also put on a good show that could be seen
from Hula Hut.
Special Thanks to our tour volunteers! The Group
Leaders were Derrick Tate, Tom Martin, Young Slack,
Mark Palmer, Ted Martin, Mike Ferrell, Scott Garwood,
Karl Poulsen, and Edward Martelle. The sign in
attendants were Karl and Karen Poulsen, Ed Martelle,
and Jennifer Elliott.
After the briefing, we had everyone meet their group
leaders to answer questions. This tour is favorite to a
lot in the Dallas area because it’s easy to get to and has
great turns, long straights, and great country scenery.
The Vintage Group had 12 cars and the other groups
averaged 9. We went through the towns of Van Alstyne,
Weston, Celina, Pilot Point, Tioga, Sanger, Aubrey,
Krugerville, Cross Roads, Oakpoint and Little Elm.
The Porsche Plano Client Drive was also doing
a drive on FM 455. Our vintage group passed them
in downtown Celina going the opposite direction. I
imagine the residents enjoyed seeing over 100 Porsches
driving through the square! We had two rest stops on
this tour so our odd groups stopped at the second rest
stop while the even numbered groups stopped at the
first rest stop.
Schnell Fest at COTA: Spring 2018 HPDE By
By Jason White, Hill Country Region
photos by Andrew Barber
Schnell Fest is a blast and has consistently brought
a smile to my face, provided great experiences,
and provided me with great racing memories.
This was my third PCA DE at COTA, and at the
conclusion of each event I’m already planning and
thinking about returning to this magnificent track.
The smooth, fast turns, long straights, and
technical sections test your skills as a driver and
bring out the very best in your Porsche. Simply
an amazing experience.
The facility is first-rate, and we had easy access to the
garage spaces, beautiful air conditioned rooms, driver’s
lounge, and ample paddock space. We even had the
conveniences of an onsite tire service, as well as access to
retail performance parts and accessories.
I brought my family out to Schnell Fest. It’s a
comfortable space for them and a great way for them to
get a taste of my hobby, and even experience the track for
themselves during the charity parade laps.
It was a real treat to be able to park alongside strangers
and quickly make new friends as well as reconnect with
friends from past events. I loved talking with other
passionate enthusiasts (some traveling from other states),
hearing their personal stories and comparing lap times.
It was such a wonderful feeling of community and
camaraderie - everyone was so friendly and willing to help
and offer advice (especially to new drivers like myself).
Our morning driver safety meetings were informative
and efficient. Our session schedule was well-executed.
Driving attendees showed true sportsmanship on the track
yet were competitive and spirited. Trains were almost
nonexistent (which was a relief) allowing for a consistent
pace for me to grow and improve my driving. In addition
the instructed class time made for a terrific value.
Three months ago when I was attending my first DE,
I was initially concerned because I didn’t know if I was
ready for an unrestricted track pace. But after proper
instruction and actively listening to my instructors, I was
soon able to begin testing the limits of my car and driving
it how it was intended to be driven. It felt awesome to get
Our PCA instructors are really special. They constantly
strive to improve your driving skills while emphasizing
safety. Dedicated corner workers help keep us safe. The
run groups move along like a fine Swiss watch, thanks to
the team of people working behind the scenes - it’s a real
This past Schnell Fest was a scorcher, with temperatures
pushing the mercury above 100 degrees, but thanks to
our organizers, we were well-hydrated with endless ice
cold water and tasty popsicles that they provided. My car
didn’t seem to notice a difference - I shaved several seconds
off of my personal best lap time and I was promoted to
the next run group. To top it all off they hosted a pizza
and beer social hour at the end of the day.
If you have not yet attended Schnell Fest, you are in
for a real treat - this multi-region event keeps attendees
coming back and is so well-run.
I’ve checked COTA off of my bucket list and I’m
looking forward to the next exhilarating Schnell Fest

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
By Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
Seventy years. Wow. Celebrating 70 years of
anything is no small feat these days. And doing so
while still building a model that was introduced 53
years ago is kind of unheard of. Pan Am, Compaq,
EF Hutton, remember them? Yeah, neither do most
people. Porsche has found a way to stay relevant
and still stick to the core values that make the brand
what it is today. A Porsche 911 today still has roots
to the car they built in 1965 that you can see in it’s
design. That’s the company that builds a product that
we’re passionate about. And that’s why we’ve just
celebrated with them on June 9th during the Porsche
Sportscar Together Day commemorating 70 years of
cars that provide the ultimate sports car experience.
As you look through this issue, I hope you enjoy
that fantastic pictures of the cars, and what a variety
of cars we have this month, but also please take a
minute to notice that we have pictures of people too.
Yes, there are people in some of those photos. These
are the people that make our club, your club, what
it is today. Without the people, these cars would just
sit and look pretty. And what fun would that be?
The knowledge, experience and stories that this group
can share will astound you. Have your heard Jack
Griffin’s story about Le Mans? If you haven’t been to
an event, come on out. July 18th the club is putting
together a track day for all skill levels as MotorSport
Ranch in Cresson. If you’ve never been on a track
before, this is your chance to drive with an instructor
and get the most out of your Porsche and maybe
pick up a racing habit you didn’t know you needed.
Want more? Check out Schnell Fest in September at
COTA. I’ll be the slow one in the back. If a day at
the track isn’t your idea of relaxation, come to one
of the socials that Clark and Vanessa plan for you
each month. They have really picked out some great
places for these events and the company can’t be beat.
You’ve already paid the price of admission – come out
and enjoy some of what the Maverick Region has to
offer. Oh, if you’re missing Mavs & Mochas, you’re
really missing out.
I’ll be back next month with an observation about
something silly that you could probably live without,
but until then - Enjoy the Drive!
