Comittment!

Our team is committed to the fight against childhood cancer and specifically Neuroblastoma.  We are inspired by a four old boy, his courage, his family, friends and the care givers they rely on.

We race to raise both awareness and funds for their fight and of others facing the same challenge(s).


No matter your background, you're welcome on our team. - 4d-SPORT.com
No matter your background, you're welcome on our team.

Determination!

It takes committment on both sides of the "pit wall". From the boardroom to the garage to the parts counter to the bank, dedication is key when fielding a competitive team.

While our drivers are both skilled and fun loving they contribute more than their fare share in support of the sport we love. You will be certin to notice them on course but without a keen eye you will miss them performing the key roles required to host our events and to keep the back office running .

Rounding out the team are our Sponsors, many sharing our passion for the thrill of the sport, check them out, we enjoy their products and services as much as their support of the team.

Arie finished 3rd in EP running very early (no heat in the Hoosier slicks, as you can see from the video and photos).. 29th overall time out of 250... what he considers major rust on his part, but praise the Lord he was able to pray for the car owner and his family.

Inspiration  -  Trust & Faith!

The words trust and faith are very similar. According to Merriam-Webster, "Trust is a charge or duty imposed on faith or confidence in someone or something. Faith is allegiance to duty or a person, loyalty, firm belief in something for which there is no proof, complete trust."

When a nitro driver crawls into a race car, he/she better have faith and confidence in the car and the crew. After all, he/she just strapped themselves to a rocket and is about to be shot down a drag strip. So where does faith like this come from? Does it just happen? Do we have to conjure it up?

Faith comes from knowledge and understanding. The more we know and understand something, the more we trust in it. Over time, a racer learns and understands how a motor, transmission, chasis, body, & safety equipment has to work at its peak performance in order to win races. Learning the car's potential and limitations enables a driver to race their car at unbelievable speeds. Even when things go wrong, drivers trust in their safety equipment to keep them safe. They also have faith in their crew to rebuild the entire car again before the next round.

If knowledge and understanding builds faith, then how do we obtain a faith that causes us to be winners in Christ? By gaining knowledge and understanding in who God is, what God is, where God is, and how we fit into His plan, it allows us to build trust and faith in God. How do we gain that knowledge and understanding? By developing a personal relationship with the One who created us. He has given us everything we need to build great faith...His Word, His Son,His Holy Spirit, and even each other. If we use and experience all that He has given us on a daily basis, then our faith will grow. Are you experiencing all that God has to offer?

Experiencing Jesus is similar to driving a race car. You can watch it go down the track all you want, but you will never know what it is truly like until you experience it. After experiencing it, additional learning and understanding takes place. One thing we have to learn is that extra weight can cause us to lose a race. Hebrews 12:1 says, "...let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us."

Strap yourself in and prepare for the ride of your life to the finish line. One note, the G-Forces you'll experience is God's Grace. (God's Riches At Christ's Expense)

"...in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize." 1 Corinthians 9:24

Liz Miles joins Team COOPER for the '06 Season. She'll demonstrate she knows how to add steering angle for more than keeping the rear in line.
You don't get many guesses what color she'll paint her 510. Care to wager what her first project for the car is? It's not a paint job.
Based on the popular Speed Channel show "Pinks", Liz paints her car "Orange" :^).
Caught on film by Doug Richardson, he offers comments about Butch's induction into Team COOPER:
Solo2 Chief, now Director, Bryan Nemy hustles the ST2 Miata between a couple of the course elements at the May 15 Oakland Network Assocaites Coliseum event.
Robert Vincent pilots the David LEar/Modacar Neon to first place at the Oakland Coliseum, 2/22/04.

Jake Hodges, pictured here driving his MR2, jumped into the Neon for Round 7, May 2-3, 2004 and beats Barry on the concrete of Atwater.
Ben Martini jumps from his Capri and puts down another benchmark run, beating Barry by almost 2 seconds. "Showing how it's done!"

Attitude!

with just the right mix of FUN,


Sherry leads the way!
Jasmine Vanderpan not only took the '05 Championship she regularly pitches in to help run events, here keeping Jeremy Rine, starter, cool under the pressure of releasing cars on course every 25 seconds.
