Take your electric performance
further with a lower charge.
Presenting the new Taycan, starting at just $79,900.* But despite its lower price tag, this
rear-wheel drive version of the all-electric Taycan still packs a punch. It’s a true Porsche
sports car, boasting up to 402 hp, accelerating from 0–60 mph in 5.1 seconds and
producing charge power of up to 300 kW. And at Park Place, this attainable, no-compromise
Porsche comes with personal service and a total dedication to your well-being.
That’s what makes Park Place feel like Your Place.

Board Botschaft: Autocrossing - Learn Your Car’s Limits
by Carey Spreen, Region VP
So here we are in the hottest part of the Texas summer.
All of Maverick Region’s driving events are taking a siesta
this month, with one notable exception: the Autocross
series, hosted and run by our partner, Equipe Rapide
(ER). There are typically 10 autocross events each year,
beginning in February and wrapping up in November;
the July 11 event this year is only the fourth one due to
the lack of venue availability, but there will still have
been 10 events by the end of this year.
Autocrossing is a competitive driving sport using
a course set up with traffic cones, generally in a large
parking lot or airport taxiway. Drivers are put on course
one at a time; there is no wheel-to-wheel racing, and thus
almost zero chance of hitting another car (or any object
more solid than a plastic traffic cone). Each driver gets
anywhere from four to six timed runs (depending on
the number of entrants that day and the organization
putting on the event; I have never attended an ER event
in which I got fewer than five runs) that can vary from
45 to 90 seconds. Runs are timed using a computerized
system that records each run to 1/1000 second.
Each course is unique; no one has driven it prior to the
day of the event, and no one will drive it again once the
event has ended. This levels the playing field so that, no
matter how little or how much experience a driver may
have, he or she sees the course for the first time, just like
everyone else. The course is not a closed course, i.e., it
starts in one part of the lot and ends in another, so there
are separate start and finish lines. Some other autocross
organizations (including other PCA Regions) often lay
out courses with a single start/finish line, so drivers can
take multiple laps per timed run, but ER events almost
always have separate start and finish areas.
Part of autocrossing involves putting in some work
time during the event. There are many positions that need
to be filled to put on an autocross: corner workers to pick
up cones that have been knocked over; grid workers to
manage cars and drivers waiting to take their runs; timer
workers who input car numbers into the timing system;
plus announcers, course setup and tear-down workers,
technical inspectors, and even a worker coordinator.
Speaking of technical inspection: As long as your
car has at least 2/32” of tread on its tires, tight wheel
bearings, tight lug nuts/bolts, empty trunk and/or frunk,
no loose items in the cockpit, undamaged seat belts, and
numbers temporarily attached to each side of the car, it
will pass inspection. All you will need as a driver is an
approved helmet and close-toed shoes, and loaner helmets
are generally available (although currently, the Covid-19
situation has temporarily prevented the use of loaners).
A lot of folks think that an autocross car has to be
modified to compete; this is a myth. As an old T-shirt
from the 1970s used to proclaim, “Every Porsche ever
made is a race car.” Well, maybe not every one, but the
point stands: you can autocross your Porsche right off
the showroom floor, and it will be competitive in its class.
Another myth is that autocrossing puts a lot of
wear and tear on the car. The only wear your car will
experience is a tiny bit of rubber off the tires, and a tinier
bit of brake pad material worn away. Over the course of
a year, some tire wear may be noticeable, but you still
won’t notice any difference in the pads. Both items are
considered consumable anyway, and if you get bitten by
the autocross bug, you will likely want to invest in a set
of autocross-friendly tires to knock a second or two off
your run times.
So if any of this sounds interesting, our next event
takes place on July 11 at Mesquite Memorial Stadium.
Come on out and have a look, or if you’re ready to try it
out, go to autocross.com and click the Registration Open
button. You will be redirected to another site where you
can create a user account, add your car information,
choose a car number and class, and register for the event!
Forty dollars gets you six timed runs and a chance to
safely find the limits of your Porsche. There are always
Mavericks there – just look for the Porsches that are all

The Porsche name has always evoked excitement, style, and
performance. And now, with the latest all-electric Taycan, the
icon becomes even more electrifying. Porsche’s heritage of
quality, design and engineering has created an electric vehicle
with unparalleled acceleration and efficiency at higher speeds,
quick to charge and practical enough to use every day.
Stay Charged with the 2021 Taycan.
Maverick of the Month
Selected by Landon Stogner, Region Volunteer Chair
sponsored by Autobahn Porsche
Michael has been with the PCA close to three years now. It’s always good
to have a helping hand to count on no matter the job. That’s exactly what
Michael is: there to help. Over the past 2+ years, any time we’ve needed
help with our Gimmick Rallies, Michael has always been one of the first
people to step in and help out. Most recently Michael was a big help to the
success of our Maverick Region Spring Concours in Grapevine.
Despite the wet conditions, Michael was at the venue early, jumping in to
help set up all of the car class banners, and then once show cars started
arriving, he made sure each car was staged in the correct class on the show
field. Later, after the awards were handed out and the event started coming
to an end, Michael was still there ready to help with the cleanup. All of our
club events are always so successful and made to look effortless with the
help from members like Michael, and that there is how our club stays Fueled
By Volunteers. Please join me in Congratulating Michael as our Maverick
of the Month.

The next women behind the wheel are two volunteers who happened to join the PCA at about the same time. I
enjoyed spending an hour with each woman, learning about their Porsches and their lives outside the club. Ginger
Heuerman (pronounced HUE-er-Man) is the current Rally Co-Chair with her husband, Tom. They own Max,
a 1986 Matte Black 944 LS1 with a distinct red stripe. Susie Jones is the brand-new Social Co-Chair with her
husband, Dana. They own a 2021 Carrara White Metallic Cayenne S Coupe. Both ladies live in Frisco and share
their club roles with their husbands. As you read on about Ginger and Susie, you’ll see that the similarities stop
there. One of the ladies told me about her beau selling his first Porsche to pay for their wedding, and the other
admits she hardly drives their Porsche and makes a much better passenger.
Ginger Heuerman with Max
So I don’t confuse you by going back and forth, I’ll
start with Ginger, whose given name isn’t Ginger at
all, but rather Sandi. Nicknamed Ginger for her silky,
long locks, you’ll need to use her nickname to get her
attention. As a child, Ginger moved often as her parents
followed employment opportunities. She attended 13
different schools – three in one year alone – twice!
This clearly helped develop her outgoing personality.
The act of relocating is very natural to her, and she’s
surprised to find
that she’s lived
in one place for
14 years now.
When she feels
the itch to move,
she finds other
ways to satisfy
her need for

taught her how to sew. She still recalls one of her first
projects: a green felt doll with a square head, arms,
legs, and button eyes. Today, she’s a professional quilter
with a big heart for charity making teddy bears, quilts,
stockings, wheelchair bags, and pillowcases. Into
sewing myself, I asked what type of sewing machine she
uses, and she instead responded with the quantity: four.
Wow! That must be one heck of a workroom.
Ginger and the Frisco Quilt Guild raffle a quilt
annually and raise funds selling pecans at the end of
each year. Their work benefits Frisco Family Services,
Hope’s Door, CASA, Meals on Wheels, and the Veterans
Administration Hospital. You may recall the Maverick
quilt she created and raffled off to benefit Patriot Paws
in 2017. For her efforts, Ginger was recognized as
January 2018’s Mav of the Month.
Speaking of animals, Ginger and Tom have two
rescue dogs. Konig is a Red Heeler/Shepherd mix, and
Teaga is a Whippet/Pit Bull mix. Her daily driver, a
Honda Odyssey, is perfect for carting them around or
taking them on glamping trips when she and Tom rent
a cabin or Airbnb in a remote location to get away. Ever
hear of a sugar glider? I hadn’t either. I laugh because
my guess was a bird. Sugar gliders are little nocturnal
marsupials, and the Heuermans have three.
Ginger met Tom through his mom, Jan Wright, in
May of 2000. While working in the internal medicine
billing department at UTSW, Jan became Ginger’s
boss and Ginger noticed photos of her sons on her
desk. There was just one problem – Ginger lived in
the metroplex and Tom lived in South Dakota. After
a two-week email relationship, Ginger booked a trip
to visit Tom in June. She returned after a week-long
visit announcing her plans to move there. She quit her
job and moved in August. He proposed the day after
Thanksgiving, and they married in May 2001. On May
14, they celebrated 20 years of marriage.
The 944 was always a dream of Tom’s. Ginger
loved its look and happily went along. They found a
1986 Zermatt Silver Metallic 944 online in 2009 and
bought it after only seeing photos. It arrived with dents
to repair, windshield wipers attached by baling wire,
and unable to start. This began a journey of about 15
different shops to bring it to today’s condition. The first
three shops dealt with trying to save the engine. Sadly,
the first two attempts failed. Shop three suggested
swapping an LS1 engine from a 2006 Corvette that had
been totaled when it was rear-ended.
Named Max after Maxmillian from the movie The
Black Hole, they had the seats recovered with black
leather and red trim in 2016 with Sue at ASM Upholstery
(of Fast N’ Loud fame.) In January 2017, Complete
Customs painted the exterior matte black with the red
stripe. Since Max has a heavy clutch, Ginger admits she
has been behind the wheel only a handful of times.
was born in
Dallas, raised in
earned a BS in
1982, she earned
a Master’s in
of North Texas.
She spent her
K-3 in Austin,
and London. No, not London, Texas, near San Antonio,
the other London in England. She retired from teaching
in late 2020 to be with her husband as he began his
battle with stomach cancer.
Susie met Dana on a blind date at Texas Tech during
their junior year and were engaged three months
later. They’ve been married for 46 years and have one
daughter and three young grandchildren close by. There
have been two Porsches in the Jones’ garage – each with
The first was a 1972 Willow Green 914. Dana and
his father split the cost of the car for his high school
graduation gift. He sold it in 1975 to marry Susie. Last
year, he ordered a 2021 Cayenne S Coupe 2.9L twin
turbocharged V6, 8-speed Tiptronic S with grey interior
as his retirement present. It quickly turned to Susie’s
daily driver when he realized he needed another Ford
F-150 Platinum for their unconventional hobby, and
ordered one in April for a summer delivery. He asked
her if she wanted the Porsche or the Audi Q8 she had
been driving, and her answer was clear.
Susie and Dana are USDA certified tree farmers,
lifetime members of The Texas Forestry Association
(TFA), and engaged with the Landowners Council
for TFA. This passion of theirs requires routine
communication with the USDA, the Natural Resources
Conservation Service (NRCS,) Texas A&M Forestry
Service, and their consulting forester. Much like the
gas wells and mineral rights on land her parents
owned put her through college, Susie looks to pass
this timber revenue legacy on to their daughter and
I talked with Susie about travel, too, wondering
about her experiences in London. She and Dana
spent 2003 in Europe for his work. They rented a
townhouse on a high street in St. John’s Wood near
The American School in London where she taught for
six months. In their spare time they took the Eurostar
to Paris twice, explored a handful of Italian cities with
their vacationing daughter, enjoyed a Thanksgiving
holiday and the Christmas market in Prague, and were
fortunate to visit nine countries and 29 cities in 2003.
They booked an August Porsche tour in Germany,
Austria, and Switzerland with Autobahn Adventures
but postponed it hoping to possibly go next year. Later
this year, they plan to travel the east and west coasts in
their Cayenne enjoying the towns and cultures along
the way. The couple regularly heads to Marfa, Texas,
to enjoy the artsy community in the surprisingly cool
summer weather. Here they take in the Big Bend
scenery, visit the McDonald Observatory, and dine at
their favorite restaurant, Stellina.
Susie, Dana and their 2021 Cayenne S Coupe

might be coming our way as the two make plans with
their PCA roles. Lastly, don’t be shy – if you’ve got a

Porsche Racing Series: Motorsport Mike
by “Motorsport Mike” O’Hare
Is there ever a dull moment in motorsports? I dare
say “never”! Of course I’m a fanatic, and if you are
reading this article, you probably are as well, or perhaps
you just find my writing entertaining ;) In last month’s
Slipstream Digital I reviewed the Porsche One-Make
racing series platform and committed to taking you
through Open Competition racing series this month.
However, before I do, let’s look at two open wheel
racing series that warrant a mention due to some record
breaking and refreshing results – at least at the time of
writing this article!
First off: if you had
a chance to watch the
Indianapolis 500, it was
a record-setting (or firsttimes)
race. To be exact,
12 records were set. The
most significant ones: the
fastest average qualifying
speed of 230.294 mph;
fastest average race speed
of 190.069 mph; and the
most cars (30 out of 33)
Photograph from www.indy.com
running at the finish. The
race was so competitive
that 22 cars finished on
the lead lap (another record)! And if you are a fan of
Hélio Castroneves, he won his fourth Indy 500 victory,
tying AJ Foyt, Al Unser, and Rick Mears for the most
500 wins in history.
For the F1 fans: as of this writing it’s “lights out”
across the first six completed races; there have been
nine different drivers on the podium across six different
constructors. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen this
level of competitiveness in the world’s highest class of
motorsport racing. We are only ¼ of the way through
the race schedule; if this continues, it’s bound to be an
exciting year, Hamilton fan or not!
“Open Competition Racing” is the pinnacle of
Porsche racing, where top professional drivers compete
on the most famous tracks across the globe in some of
the highest-performing cars. These include the likes of
Porsche, Audi, Mercedes, BMW, Ferrari, Acura, Aston
Martin, Lamborghini, and McLaren. In North America
there are 4 major racing series where Porsche competes:
• SRO GT World Challenge America
• IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship
• Pirelli GT4 America
• IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge
For the 2021 SRO GT World Challenge season,
Porsche 911 GT3Rs race against the highest-performing

auto manufacturers a total of 13 rounds (two rounds
per track except at Indianapolis) at marquee tracks
across the U.S. including Sonoma, COTA, VIR, Road
America, Watkins Glen, Sebring, and Indianapolis.
There are three general classifications: Pro Cup, Pro/Am
(Amateur) Cup, and Am Cup. The Wright Motorsports
customer team, piloted by drivers Jan Heylen and Fred
Poordad, took the opening PRO/Am round 1 victory at
The second series, the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car
Championship, is one of the most popular and exciting
open competition racing series that Porsche competes
in. Venues in 2021 include the 24 Hrs. at Daytona, 12

race), 6 Hrs. at Watkins Glen, Watkins Glen
International, Lime Rock Grand Prix, IMSA Sportscar
Weekend at Road America, WeatherTech at Laguna
Seca, Grand Prix of Long Beach (Indy Car support
race), and the 10 Hrs. Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta.
There are two styles of cars that compete in this
series. The first style is the Prototype, which showcase
the latest automotive technology and are uniquely
designed for the racetrack. These prototype cars are
broken into three classifications: Daytona Prototype
International (DPI), which are the fastest and most
technology-advanced sports cars in North America;
the Le Mans Prototype 2 (LMP2), which are eligible
to compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship
and the prestigious 24 Hrs. of Le Mans; and the Le
Mans Prototype 3 (LMP3), which is an entry-level
closed-cockpit car. The second car style that competes
in the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship is
the GT cars, which are separated into two classes: GT
Le Mans (GTLM) and GT Daytona (GTD). It is in these
two groups where Porsche competes against the likes
of Ferrari, BMW, Corvette, Audi, Acura, Lamborghini,
Lexus, McLaren, and Mercedes-AMG. The GTLM
class cars are the most technically advanced GT cars
based on production models, and are engineered to
extract the maximum performance possible. The GTD
cars utilize the Federation of International Automotive
(FIA, an international governing body of motorsport)
The points system for this series is divided into
three groups: Driver, Team, and Manufacturer. For
the 2021 season, Porsche customer teams include
WeatherTech Racing (GTLM) in a 911 RSR, and Wright
Motorsports, Pfaff Motorsports, Team Hardpoint
Ebm, and Teamtgm (GTD) racing 911 GT3Rs. As of
this writing, Porsche has achieved podium placements
at the 24 Hrs. of Sebring, winning the GTLM class with
team WeatherTech Racing in a 911 RSR, and taking the
top two spots in GTD respectively, with teams Pfaff and
The third series in which Porsche competes in is
the Pirelli GT4 America, utilizing the Cayman GT4
Clubsport (CS), competing against other GT4 models
from Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford,
McLaren, AMG Mercedes, and Toyota. Notable
Porsche customer teams running in this series include
Murillo Racing, NOLASPORT, NOLASPORT with
OGH, The Racers Group (TRG), and Black Swan
Racing. In 2021, this series will compete in a Sprint X
format with two driver teams competing in 60-minute
double-header weekends across Silver, Pro-Am, and
AM classifications. This year’s calendar includes races
at Sonoma, COTA (in place of Ontario, Canada), VIR,
Road America, Watkins Glen, Sebring, and Indy. As of
this writing, three venues have already taken place, and
Porsche has taken the overall victories in each (Sonoma
with NOLASPORT, COTA with NOLASPORT, and
VIR with Murillo Racing)!!
The fourth series for Porsche is the IMSA Michelin
Pilot Challenge, where there are two classes: Grand
Sport (GS) that is run to GT4 specs, and Touring Car
(TCR). Porsche competes in GS with a GT4 Clubsport,
as do customer racing teams Wright Motorsports and
BGB Motorsports. For the 2021 season races are
scheduled at Daytona, Sebring, Mid-Ohio, Watkins
Glen, Lime Rock, Road America, VIR, Laguna Seca,
and Road Atlanta. These timed 2- or 4-hour events
consist of a point system that is broken down by Driver,
Team, and Manufacturer.

Michael Durovick: I understand you are not a DFW native.
Where are you from and what brought you here?
Scott Cepak: I relocated to Texas in 1987, from a suburb
of Chicago, after being hired by the Fort Worth Police
Department. I retired after 29 years, and now work with
the Southlake Police Department.
MD: So how long have
you owned Porsches and
when did you join the
SC: I have been a Maverick
Region PCA member for
10 years, after buying
my first Porsche, a 1974
911 unfinished project
car. I finished it by adding
an RSR body kit with
a Kremer wrap-around
front end, 930 race
transmission, and a Chevy
LS3 engine. It had several
paint and wrap schemes
when I owned it, and it
was driven in all the DEs,
TTs, and Autocross events
I was able to attend.
carbon wing, and bigger wheels and tires. The hood and
decklid were already carbon fiber. I removed the factory
fuel tank and replaced it with a custom Fuel Safe cell in
the frunk. The paint is single coat urethane. I fixed the few
things needed to get it inspected and be “street legal.”
MD: So this GT3 RSR is a car you put together as a track
car. Can you give us some history on what this car was
originally and the modifications you did?
SC: I purchased my current car in 2018, and had it shipped
here from North Carolina. It was a 2002 996 dedicated
track car with a GT3 engine, Moton shocks, suspension
upgrades, and a one-seat bare interior. It had a reported
race history in Florida and North Carolina. I installed an
RSR body, fiberglass doors with window frames, the factory
interior and panels, new rollcage, two new seats, a wider
MD: And the powertrain - where did the engine come from
and what kind of power is it putting out?
SC: My original intent was to swap the LS3 engine I kept
from my last Porsche, but I found the GT3 engine to run just
fine, so it will stay. Besides the headers, aftermarket deep
oil pan, and K&N filter system, I do not know if anything
else has been done to the engine. The only modification I
may add is a VF Engineering bolt-on supercharger. After
completing the “rebuild,” it turned out so good that I have
not decided whether to track it again.
MD: What other car projects are you working on
or have completed in the past?
SC: As I have a passion for cars, along with the
Porsches, I am also an avid drag racer. I have gone
through several vehicles over the years, but currently
am building an S10 truck with an LSX engine.
MD: What in particular do you enjoy about being a
member of the Maverick Region?
SC: I enjoy being a Maverick Region member
because of the events and the members. I went a
few years in between projects, so I missed out on a
lot of stuff, but am glad to be involved again.

Maverick Marktpreis: 924
by Peter Wen, Region Merchandise Chair
What’s the most affordable Porsche model? Many
people would answer the 996, a first-gen Boxster, or
the early 928. All solid guesses. However, this dubious
honor goes to the little-talked-about 924. Excellence
magazine’s Buyer’s Guide priced it at $3,500-$6,000.
The 924 was developed as the entry level Porsche.
It is a two-door, 2+2 coupe, with an Audi-derived
95-hp inline four engine. It is Porsche’s first front
engine, first water-cooled, and first transaxle car.
Despite painfully slow straight line acceleration
(9.6 seconds, 0-62 mph), it was praised for its
balanced handling, styling, and reliability. It was a
successful model. It sold over 120,000 units from
1976 to 1985.
Excellence magazine’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide offered these price
ranges for the 924:
Hagerty Valuation Tool:
1987 924 S
$8,500 average value
924 ’18-’19 ’19-’20 ’20-’21
1977-82 $3.5k-$6k $3.5k-$6k $3.5k-$6k
1980-82 turbo $6k-$8k $6k-$8k $6k-$8k
1977-82 $4.5k-$8k $4.5k-$8k $4.5k-$8k
May 2018 Jan 2019 Sep 2019 May 2020 Jan 2020
Fun Facts: The 924 was the first of Porsche’s three front-engine,
four cylinder, transaxle models. It was followed by the 944 and the
968. It was built in Volkswagen’s plant in Neckarsulm, Germany.
“The term ‘transaxle’ is a combination of ‘transmission’ and ‘axle.’
The engine transmits power to the rear axle via a driveshaft
housed in a rigid cover pipe.” - Porsche.com

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder, Region President
photos provided by Michael Hays and Bill Kruder
Not a lot of good came out of
COVID right? Well for Debi and
me, we made sure to recognize the
good, and meeting Michael was
just that. It was the COVID Relief
Tour to historic Granbury Square.
We were invited to a meet-up
location to make the drive over
to the starting point. Well
Michael pulls up in his ‘88
Targa with a smile, looking
all cool and ready for the
drive. Let’s just say it was
one of those days where the
temps just kept creeping up,
and by the time we arrived
he was about to melt. Some
time went by and we would
see him out and about with
that same welcoming smile.
Fast forward months ahead
and Michael volunteered
to help with the Rally.
Well even with the best of
planning, things can go awry,
and who saves the day and
gets the members back on
course . . . Michael. Most
recently he volunteered to
help with the Concours set up.
Here he is again serving in a
light drizzle, on the show field
getting the banners all in place.
So here is the next in my
series of “conversations” I would
like to share with you . . .
Michael Hays, member since 2018
Owner 2018 Carrera Targa
Bill Kruder: So let’s start with where
did you grow up?
Michael Hays: I’m originally from
Waxahachie (little known fact: so
was Byron Nelson); still have family
there. We moved to Lancaster
when I was about eight years old
and I attended high school at Elsie
Robertson aka Lancaster High. I
didn’t move from there until leaving
for college. After college, I bought
a home in North Dallas near the
Galleria, and still own it today.
Then in 2006 I settled in West Plano
near Spring Creek and DNT.
BK: And where was college?
MH: I didn’t stray too far. I attended UNT
in Denton, studying Criminal Justice.
Michael and Suzanne Hays
BK: So is that what you went into?
MH: No. I was always interested in
car stuff, and while I was going to
college I worked part time at a car
stereo shop. I loved the cars and
the music so I pretty much stayed
in the business working for Dal
Worth CB and Car Stereo for the
next 10 years. Over that time we
grew to 20 locations throughout
the metroplex. Then I went to work
for Alta Mere, which is a franchise
group doing auto window tinting.
We had 68 stores across the
country. It was sold to a company
in Chicago, and one day I was left
without a job. As luck would have
it, a company that sold to us hired
me to sell auto electronics. Matter
of fact, Joe Mills of the Steele Shop
was my customer.
BK: And today?
MH: Well I had learned along the way
how to sell and install residential
and commercial window tinting,
so in 2017 I started my own firm.
A couple of our clients are Bank of
America and Chase Bank.
BK: So how did you and
MH: We met in 2001 through
a mutual friend. We had both
been invited to a birthday
party; I saw her, we talked,
and that was that. Then,
about six months later,
there was another birthday
party we both got invited
to. I asked if Suzanne would
be there and they said yes.
So if you ask her she will
tell you it was that second
meeting that she remembers
me from; I guess I didn’t
knock her off her feet the
first time (laughing)! But as
they say, the rest is history,
as we married in 2007, now
celebrating 14 years.
BK: Let’s talk cars: first car?
MH: Let’s see - I was 16 and it was
a 1974 Ford Courier mini pickup
truck. It was a rebrand of the
Mazda B series compact truck.
BK: So why Porsche?
MH: Simple! As a kid we all had
our dream cars, posters and stuff;
mine was a poster of the Porsche
930. Then as I was working in the
car stereo world, someone had a
930 and I thought, I can do that
BK: So tell me about your Targa.
MH: Let me start by thanking
Suzanne and her parents. We went
out to meet Suzanne’s parents,
who live in San Diego, and in the
garage there was this white 1988
Porsche. Her dad and I started talking and he told me
how he bought it new in 1988 as a treat to himself
having opened up his practice (he is an OB-GYN).
Well he drove it for several years and then just parked
it in the garage, letting dust settle on it (this is 2004).
Then in 2007 we are getting married and her dad says
“if you two want the car, come get it.” Well that was
some wedding gift! As it turned out I had a friend
that was transporting cars and happened to be in
L.A., and I asked if he had room for one more. Again,
as luck would have it he said “Sure,” so he brought
the car to Dallas. Once home with us I wasn’t sure
what it would take to get it running. We started with
the basics: fresh gas, oil change, and new battery, and
boom, it ran again.
BK: So you joined our club in 2018?
MH: I did but frankly I didn’t really do anything at
first. It wasn’t until 2020 and COVID that I really
took interest. I would see things about “pop ups”
so I thought “What the heck, let’s see what this is all
about.” One day there was one near my house and I
met Pat Carmichael (aka father of pop ups) and we hit
it off, talking about all the stuff the club does. So yes,
something good came out of COVID. Now I enjoy
the club tours, helping with Rallies, car shows, and
of course the monthly coffee meets on the second and
BK: So I hear you are big F1 fan?
MH: I guess you could say that. Suzanne’s family is
from Brazil, so I have been lucky enough to attend
two F1 races in São Paulo.
BK: Who is you favorite driver?
MH: So I better whisper this, but it’s Hamilton.
MH: Yes, Suzanne’s mom’s maiden name is Ferrari (no
relation) so her family is all about the rosso corsa and
the prancing horse, so we try to keep my fondness for
Lewis Hamilton on the down low (laughing).
And with all this said, now you know why Michael
was chosen as our July Mav of the Month - see page 7.
He truly defines Driving Friendships.

SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR FANTASTIC SPONSORS, VENDORS AND VOLUNTEERS!
Racing Profile: John and Daniel Shofner
by Scott Kellogg, Concours Chair
Let’s talk about racing and dreaming. A lot of us dream
about racing. Driving our cars at LeMans and wearing
that laurel wreath around or necks and spraying each
other with the best champagne. After all we all drive
Porsches, born and bred to go fast and win…. And, oh
yes, look so stylish doing it.
There are a couple of members in the Maverick
Region who are doing just that. Not driving at LeMans,
but perhaps some day getting there: John Shofner and
his son Daniel.
John had been racing in the PCA Porsche events at
Cresson and Eagle’s Canyon for a couple of years in his
spec Boxster. With quite a bit of success, John felt after a
while that he wanted a little company on the track, so, as
most father’s do, he went and bought another car and give
it to Daniel. Thus was born Team Shofner.
Through the last
year, Daniel went
through the PCA
training and racing
finished first in most
of his races.
This all leads up
to the first week in
February at a little
place called Sebring.
Just a small airport in
the middle of Florida,
and also a mecca for
racing history. So,
as luck would have
it, both of their cars
magically appeared at
Sebring. (You didn’t
think I was going
to mention Florida
without using the
word magical. LOL )
Once at the track,
it was practice time.
The weather was a
bit overcast early in
the day so the temps
were cool. The track
was dry, for the
time being, and so
practice they did.
After practice it
was time to race.
There were about 30
Boxsters there from around the country to race and have a
good time. Each car prepared to face the competition, and in
this case the competition was young Daniel of team Shofner.
In the first race Daniel finished in first place. Just after
getting his racing license, he is off to a great start with a
first place finish. And yes dad finished in fourth place in
that race. I think he was taking pictures of Daniel. LOL.
In the next race the result was the same: Daniel with the
win and father in third place. Both father and son worked
hard as they managed to beat the other Boxsters…. well if
driving fast is working hard. We know it is.
For the third races the weather decide to be Florida
weather and the rain came. Wet or dry, we race! And so
off they went, but in this particular event, Daniel managed
to spin in the first part of the race finally finishing in 11th
place with his father taking 3rd.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
You might notice a subtle shift in the subject matter
of the articles in this printed edition of Slipstream. This
hasn’t happened entirely by accident. As we continue to
mature the “newsletter,” as PCA refers to our regional
publications, a conscious effort to funnel current/
recent events to the online edition and explore less time
sensitive aspects of the club in this format. Hopefully
this will keep us from reading
about the Mavs & Mochas from
two months ago.
We’ve introduced some great
new monthly features with Mike
O’Hare’s Motorsport Mike
column where he explores racing
news centered around, but not
exclusive to Porsche. Joann Talty
has graciously begun the Women
Behind the Wheel column profiling
the many women enthusiasts in
our club. There are so many great
stories out there. Please reach out to Joann if you have
a story or a story idea. We want to hear it! Another new
periodic feature is Michael Durovick’s profiles of unique
and interesting cars in the club. If you have a one-ofa-kind
ride, reach out – I would love to coordinate a
photo shoot and question and answer about your car
If you have a story idea, or would like to contribute
your own feature or profile, please let us know. You
will still see event previews and recaps here, but the real
up-to-date news will be over at
I would love to take the credit
for the changes and new features
that you’re seeing, but as you can
see in the photo to the left of the
Concours judging group I
“supervised,” it’s really some
great club members helping out a
confused individual (thanks
Olga!) that happens to be the
current editor of this great legacy.
myself with Olga Taylor and Greg Cleath
I have been honored to be a part
of such a great club, with such great people. If you still
haven’t been to an event, stop waiting and pick one.
You’ll be glad you did. Enjoy the drive!
