  • Jamie's Pit Notes

    February 14, 2013 - Happy Valentine's Day from Pomona, CA! I decided this morning that if event organizers want to guarantee perfect weather they just have to put the word "Winter" in the event name. Last week, the ALMS had the annual "Winter Test" which saw temps in Sebring reach the low 80s and today at the "Winternationals" it a beautiful sunny 65 at the moment.

    There has been so much excitement lately in the world of motorsport, more than I remember in the last couple of years. Last week, I saw Risi back on track, Muscle Milk's updated P1, Flying Lizard in GTC and others. Then, I was invited to go to the launch of the all new BMW Z4 GTE at Daytona. Talk about an amazing experience! They treated us right and held off on many announcements just for us there. Things like tire partner (Michelin), driver combos and of course the CAR were all apart of it. It truly does look fast sitting still! I had a really embarrassing moment though. They gave us all a car to drive from Orlando to Daytona and I was in an M5... which was a manual transmission. So, not only could I not drive it, I had to climb out and admit I couldn't in front of several oh, and all on camera too. Epic Fail!

    So all that brings me to now and the NHRA Winternationals. Its was two years ago that I made the trek out west for my first NHRA event with ESPN. Then, I was covering the sportsman show and learning the sport. Now, I come back to cover the Mello Yello Championship. How exciting!!! There certainly is no shortage of story lines here either. So much has happened that we have to get creative with how we tell it all. I am anxious to get to the pits and meet some new people and see some friends. Don't hesitate to send me any questions along the way!

    January 22, 2013 - Welcome to 2013! I am going to make every attempt at keeping notes this season on my travels and behind the scenes happenings in the events I am fortunate enough to cover. So here we are, the first race of the year and it’s the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona in sunny Daytona Beach, FL. I am covering the race for my third year in a row with SPEED and we have a new announcer lineup. Just like in the teams there are some changes over every off-season but we have a great team and I get to work with some really cool people! I’ll be on pit lane concentrating mostly on the “Pit-In” side. This is a change for me as I am usually at “Pit-Out” for Grand-Am races, which means that I mostly concentrate on the GT teams. But this year I am down with the DP teams, so I have some homework to do! With me on pit lane will be Chris Neville, Andrew Marriott and Matt Yocum. In the booth we have the full cast of Bob Varsha, Calvin Fish, Dorsey Shroeder, Brian Till, Tommy Kendall and Justin Bell. It’s a great team to be a part of and learn from. Most of us came down for testing earlier this month so I was able to see most of the drivers and chitchat a bit. The biggest topic of discussion has been #TheFuture. It’s what everyone wants to talk about. And I will say this again- I am all for it. I love sports car racing and I love all of the various people involved, we are a family. With the economy the way it has been the merger ensures that the sport continues. Neither sports car series has to suffer. At the test the class structure for 2014 was announced and that gave everyone a revived sense of excitement. Grand-Am has a new race director, Paul Walter, beginning this weekend. He is the current ALMS race director as well, so I see it as a sign of things to come once the two are merged together next year.

    I am also covering the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge this weekend. I look forward to this race because it’s a weekend everyone comes out to play for. All the cars are new and shiny, the drivers and crew haven’t had a chance to dirty up their suits, there isn’t any bad blood in the competition yet, and its anyone’s championship to win at this point. This weekend sets the tone for the season and its looking to be one filled with some really close battles and lots of personality.

    Unfortunately, this will be my only Grand-Am weekend of 2013. I will be covering the full ALMS and most of the NHRA schedule as well as making the yearly trip to Le Mans. Ill do my best to keep you updated along the way. Feel free to ask me questions or let me know of anything you want to know about!

    Have a great year!

    "I would rather entertain & hope that people learned something, than educate people & hope they were entertained" - Walt Disney

    People ask how I got started and I suppose it’s not unlike how anyone gets started in their career. I was a girl with a dream.

    I always wanted to be involved in television and went to college for a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism. Through school I worked hard with various production companies and worked my way from filling coolers to field producing and eventually to being on-camera.

    I am fortunate enough to work with some of the best and most interesting people in the world. But in addition to that, I have the best husband and 4-legged creatures imaginable!

    I wouldn’t trade any of it for anything!.
