Jim Hargrove racing to 9th from last at the 2010 SCCA Runoffs. Electrical problems kept shutting the engine off through the race, but I was able to restart it each time by cycling the master swtich. Brand new 2010 Honda Civic Coupe on debut at the Runoffs.
James Reeve Returns 2011 Road Atlanta
The return to racing of Yenko Stinger racing legend James J. Reeve Jr.
Back in the mid 70's James was a thorn in the side of the British and
Datsun factory teams. James in his 1966 Yenko Stinger Corvair running as a
privateer was able to beat the likes Group 44, Huffaker and Datsun factory
backed teams in SCCA D-Production road racing at the national championship
level. I offered my Yenko Stinger Corvair for James to drive in the 2011
Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) annual Mitty race at Road Atlanta the
weekend of April 29-May 1. James certainly didn't disappoint us Corvair
types this weekend. We were only beaten by a very well driven, and fast,
Lotus Super 7 driven by Bill Bartlett also from Atlanta. Thanks again

Qualified 23rd, ran as high as 9th, finished 11th. Earned the Sunoco Hard
Charger award. Rear-facing camera in upper left hand corner.
Welcome to my Runoffs experience. I didn't qualify where I wanted due to
missing half of the week, having mechanical issues during my two qualifying
sessions, and subsequently over-driving my ill-handling car trying to make
up for lost time. Nevertheless, making up 14 spots during the race was
certainly exciting and enjoyable. Before the race I made a fuel pressure
adjustment that turned out to be ill-advised as I felt like I had less
straightaway speed than I had during qualifying the day before. I made
significant changes to try and loosen the car up and it worked... too much
in fact in the carousel which killed me on the longest straightaway.
Overall a very fun weekend and some pretty entertaining video as a result.
My brake pedal started to soften about a third of the way into the race so
I had to push my braking zones way back (like an entire marker in some

Every thing just came together after such a hard season. My crew gave me an
awesome car to drive and I made sure not to make any mistakes. Best lap was
a 2:03 in the opening couple of laps and then went into conserve mode to
make sure we crossed the finish line and to claim our 2nd national title,
this being our first in DSR.
