Phoenix is an actual race, I'm sure it just falls on the same weekend as Barrett Jackson.

If you want to win you will have 3-4 MAX!
Yeah that is what I'm saying... You have 2 cars with 2-3 drivers perday... But you swap cars the next day so you get to race both days. I don't think two driver changes per day will kill your race.
Maybe two guys only get to race one day... (the money)

Yeah, I went to Barrett Jackson once... spent a day there and it definately wasn't enough to see everything. Cool cars for as far as you can see! Some really neat rare stuff.

Then there are 2 regular highline (luxury/exotic) auctions we go to monthly. Cool cars there as well, but all newer stuff.

I recommend ALL car guys go check out Barrett Jackson!

I think 3 drivers the entire weekend is full of WIN!!
Each Car has to have a min of 4 drivers right? If no matter what you waited till only a full course caution to change that would be an advantage> Or if the first day you swapped all four drivers (3 stops) About an hour and a half each... Then seen where you stand for the next day.... You could take the best car with the best two drivers and only do one driver change all second day in that car and the other car become the fun car. This would allow the final day the 4 best drivers (some with plenty of track time the day before) to run four 3 hour runs. So basically you could have 8-10 total drivers between 2 cars. That would put the cost per driver at just over 200 bucks. Also say if someone didn't get a ride the first day then they could jump in the other car the second day and get to drive after all.

There is a bunch of different angles with a second car on the team. And with car to car communication the slower car could become a pic.


I mean you could even swap two-three drivers the first 30 laps and get the changes out of the way early for both cars.
