The D. J. Race team has been extremely active over the summer months. "Racing is the mainstream for the team," says Danny Kellermeyer president of D. J.

The following are some of these events:

Touring Challenge for Corvette Races
D. J. Race Enterprise


This 2002 racing season for the Touring Challenge for Corvettes has seen a new era as the D. J. Race Enterprise team arranged a special Hospitality area at each of the race events.

"Corvette enthusiasts have totally enjoyed the race weekend coupled with the TCC race events", say Danny Kellermeyer. "We've tried to give our Fan Involvement Program participants the chance to be a part of Corvette racing on a first hand basis, and it has been working well".

The two drivers Robert Pfeffer and Danny Kellermeyer, as well as all the D. J. Race team, have taken the time to relax and discuss all the ins and outs of racing. The weekend starts with the Corvette Corral, joining in on the technical seminar, driving the track parade lap and ending with the TCC race making these race weekends an event to cherish and enjoy.

To add to the excitement of the race weekend there has been the competition of all the drivers and especially our team drivers of Pfeffer and Kellermeyer. These two drivers have exchanged overall championship 1st and 2nd leads almost after ever race. With ten of the eleven races completed, the Championship is coming right to the last race to decided if it will be Pfeffer or Kellermeyer. This overwhelming competition has been the topic during every race weekend.

Mid-Ohio Raceway held two race weekends. Races 5 & 6 were on July 5-6, and races 7 & 8 on Aug. 3-4. Races 9 & 10 then went on to Watkins Glen International on Sept. 14-15. This was the first rain race of the season. Robert Pfeffer took the Championship lead with a fantastic drive finishing 1st in both races.

We are pleased that some Corvette owners have taken in more than just one of the races. Robert Woolley from the Street Corvette Club of Columbus, Ohio writes, "Just wanted to say thanks again for all that you did /do for your fans at Watkins Glen, along with the other tracks. I really had a great time, and am still amazed at your patience and commitment during the whole weekend. I enjoyed the seminar on Saturday.. well actually I enjoyed the whole weekend." Robert joined us at Mid-Ohio and then came to Watkins Glen for the race weekend again. He and other members of his club are discussing the possibility of being the hosting club for the next season.

"Interest like this has stemmed from the overall reception of these weekends activities", say Danny. "Everyone has been asking questions about their Corvettes and performance changes. I would anticipate that next year will snowball in responses and we may be overwhelmed".

The hospitality events will extend into one of National Corvette Council Autocross events. The team will be holding a seminar and help the Land of Lincoln Corvette Club as they support one of the largest and best events at the Lake Geneva Raceway. The Seminar will be tailored specially for this fun event Oct. 12-13.
