2001 SCCA Central Florida Region GT-2 Club Champion
My name is John Snodgrass.
I am a member of the Florida Citrus Region PCA
and the Central Florida Region
. I am the owner/driver of the Plum Crazy Racing 1973 Porsche
911RS. On this page you will find the stories of Plum Crazy Racing,
the owner/driver, and anything else I feel compelled to write about. I'll even try and update it once in awhile.

The current downward trends in the economy have not been kind. My employer,
which shall remain nameless, has had to undergo several layoffs. While
I have not been effected yet, I'm still not confident how much longer I may
still be employed. Therefore most of the updates and changes I had
planned for the car have been put on hold. At this point I'm just hoping
that I don't have to put the car up for sale.
Long awaited updates
A lot of things have happened since I last updated these web pages. Since
successfully completing the driver school in February, rebuilding the motor
and my first SCCA race in November, I was ready to go for the rest of the
2001 club racing season. I ran all of the 2001 CFR points races except
for the regional race in June. It's awfully hot at Sebring in June
, so I went to the Nevada desert (Las Vegas) the first week of July for a
vacation instead. It's a good thing those casinos are air conditioned.
I also ran a NASA/BMW Club event in early June to do some testing, and the
HSR (Historic Sportscar Racing) event in conjunction with the 12 Hours of
Sebring in March.
