As racing drivers we put our lives on the line every time we climbing into a race car, and every time we do that we enjoy the hell out of it, and with Justin It was no different. The only consolidation we have is that he died doing something he loved.

I was fortunate enough to meet Justin a couple times and be in the paddock with him for several events, he was one of the most friendly and happy guys I have ever met! I send my condolences to his family, friends and the whole racing community as we have all lost a brother in arms. #RIPJustin

After a small vacation with my family in California, its back to work preparing for the next round of the Pirelli World Challenge Championships at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course! Still finalizing some of our budgeting concerns on the #26 car, but these next two weeks will be key in our funding search!

A beauty. And a beast. We will test this racing version of the Golf under race conditions in the new TCR series for a possible customer racing program in the future. 330 brake horsepower, from naught to 100 in 5.5 seconds. Like it?
What do you think of the newly released Golf touring car from Volkswagen Motorsport? A proper solution from VW for the newly formed touring car series TCR International Series! I'd love a couple laps in the seat!

A second podium finish by Mikey T Racing headlines the day so far for the Rains Racing team! Great job Mikey, a third, now a second, only one spot on the podium left!

Andrew's car failed to start on pre-grid forcing him to start from pit lane, he ended up 13th after charging through the TCB and TCA cars.

We race again at 4:15pm, but due to an incident on track the start may be delayed, stay tuned!

Rains Racing
The Rains Racing crew awaits a wake up call of 3:00am tomorrow morning to head north to Road America with the Pirelli World Challenge Championships!

June 22, 2015 Birmingham, AL:

After a somewhat disappointing debut last month at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, the Rains Racing team is back, and ready to run its Touring Car class Volkswagen's at Wisconsin's Road America this coming weekend!

The team suffered several reliability woes, but proved the speed of the VW platform, with Mikey Taylor running as high as third, and Andrew Rains as high as sixth overall on the team's debut. With further preparation, and strong support from the team's great partners, the young operation looks to build on the foundation that was laid at CTMP, with an emphasis on finishing races before all else.

The team feels properly equipped with great usable power delivered by Unitronic, a smooth and throaty Milltek Sport exhaust note, Motul Lubricants, DXD Racing Clutches, OMP Racing gear, and parts from RacingLine North America and Black Forest Industries, the team is excited to represent these great companies!

Thank you to our steadfast supporters, The Rains Racing team, and the Rains and Taylor families, National Bank of Commerce, AfriGIS, PLK Investment Partners, Advanced Graphics, and Portable-Shade USA LLC! We're on the track because of the efforts of the men and women with these companies (and families of course!), thank you so much for being a part of our team!

We're excited to welcome aboard European Performance Group, and Frank Ridenour, as well as Motorville Volkswagen, and Ben Darkow for the Road America race weekend. Thank you for your local knowledge and support, and see you at the track!

Catch all of this weekend's racing action on world-challengetv.com:

Saturday, June 27th at 8:00am CST
Sunday, June 28th at 8:30am CST and 4:15 CST

The CBS Sports Network will broadcast Touring Car race coverage from Road America on Wednesday, July 8th at 7:00pm EST!

#ThrowbackThursday
For those of you that don't know, the car I competed in at the latest Touring Car Pirelli World Challenge Championships round was actually an old totaled race car. Myself and a couple of friends (Adam Cobb, Lee Watterson, MP Moore, Lee Hurley) took what we thought was a piece of crashed race car junk and in 3 months turned it into a very fast Volkswagen USA Touring Car!

To just have the opportunity to get to our first race was a privilege for us and we hope to make all of our partners and supporters proud as we continue to search for funding to complete the season! #MikeyTRacing Rains Racing
