February 16, 2014 - Oracle Arena/O.co Coliseum-Oakland, CA - "A dash for change" Round 2, we continue our partnership with Fore Delta - Associates.  Not surprising that with the weather clearing the heavy equipment arrives and construction of the championship season continues.

Why Race?

As in most endeavors, preparation is often the differentiator in performance (of course, natural abilities, and conditions beyond our direct control matter too!).

Below, we are able to get additional runs, outside of the competition runs (called Fun Runs), with different equipment (on street tires), to work on negotiating the course in the least amount of time.  It wasn't until the final run that we were able to adapt to a "speed maintenance" style of driving, which some of the critical elements required to negotiate the course quickly.

Service orientation puts others first!
Blessed with a first and second, in class, finish (Barry Chafin and Dennis Armstrong), and this awesome photo by Daniel Booth (Barry in a borrowed (silver) helmet - left his at home - thank you SFR SCCA!). While the tires are two years old and well beyond being competitive, we give the results to God, each and every event, each and every run.
Beginning the second half of the 2014 Championship Season, we are working on the Hand-in-Hand project to help Kids Against Hunger Bay Area - Feeding families around the world... and around the corner

Hand-in-Hand - 2014
As summer temperatures climb and the smell of BBQ fills the air we are reminded of those who don't have enough to eat. Teaming up with Kids Against Hunger - Bay Area and Rimz & Ribz 2014 we launched "Hunger Helper", a Fore Delta Hand-in-Hand community service project. You can learn how to join in here:
Fore Delta Associates “We are thankful for the opportunity to give back to the community, as we race for Kids Against Hunger - Bay Area. Collaboration is at the heart of what Fore Delta Associates does, and we can think of no better team building exercise in the community than a Kids Against Hunger food packing event ... it’s a win/win/win proposition!” - L. Barry Chafin, Principal -- Photo Credit: Alvin Cheng

Preliminary designs for the race car graphics are in for review and approval. One of the stops planned for the car will be at the Ribz and Rimz 2014 car show, where Kids Against Hunger will be the featured charity. 4d-SPORT.com

Coming off a victorious weekend with the SCCA Solo National Tour, we'd like to shout out belated happy Father's Day wishes to all.   We are especially thankful that we were able to partner with Kids Against Hunger Bay Area, and Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation in support of making this a better world for the most innocent.  Thanks!!!

June 25th - Packing Event – This is the third year Kids Against Hunger – Bay Area was packing at the Alameda County Fair.  The meals are stored with the Regional Disaster Recover Center to use in the event of a widespread disaster in the greater Bay Area.  With the help of over 600 volunteer we packed 105,193 meals, over 5,000 of which will be sent to Haiti or the Philippines.  Want to try an event, click on “Sign Up Now” to reserve your spot.  Your donations are always welcomed. 

July 12th Car - ShowRimz & Ribz is an annual car show that celebrates diversity, including: classics, hot rods, race cars, imports, monster trucks, tuners, farm machines, motorcycles, motor homes, exotics, bicycles, strollers, work trucks, you name it!  Marking eight years for this event, all additional proceeds were dedicated to Kids Against Hunger – Bay Area.   There were over 260 hot Rimz, rippin live music, the best Ribz in the Bay Area prepared by Boneheads Texas BBQ, the most authentic shaved ice on the mainland from Gnarly Shaved Ice Company, and last but not least, some outstanding raffle prizes from the generous sponsors.

The Fore Delta Associates race car was front and center of the booth where donations to Kids Against Hunger – Bay Area were recognized with a “Helping Hand” sticker that you could take home to put on your own Rimz, or have it applied to the race car in honor of your support as it hit the track.  We raised enough funds to package over 5,000 meals!
