Charlotte Recap and Results!

As promised, here is a full show rundown for the late July event at Charlotte Motor Speedway! You can never get enough OSUSC podcast episodes, right?

Just as a reminder, the Charlotte event occurred during the week prior to COTA and was covered in full within Episode #35. Our recording schedule had to be adjusted to accommodate accordingly, and once you’ve made it through this episode you’ll be all caught up.

Also covered in this show is the full weekend schedule for Road America! That particular event is quite unique in that it’s a full 3-day weekend of action, but all driving competition events are done (simultaneously) on Sunday.

Thanks for listening!

-Rob & Jimi

ps. Don’t forget, you are invited to join in on the LS-Fest (Bowling Green) to NOLA Cruise! It occurs the week of Sept 12-16. CONTACT JIMI to register. There is no fee to attend!
