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!

Really great day yesterday in the #26 Jetta GLI! After some problems in testing, we rushed to make sure we had a good car for qualifying. 6th place was all we could do, but shows we have a competitive package for the races!

The first race will be at 9 am EST watch it live on www.world-challengetv.com!

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

Today was frustrating for the team after Mikey Taylor ran in 3rd position and Andrew passed three cars on the opening lap, but neither car was running at the checkered flag. Both drivers had short lived races with mechanical failures, but we'll be back at it tomorrow morning!

Progress is being made, and the team is learning!

Race 3 starts at 8:00am EST Sunday morning!
Well, we gave it our best shot! Very positive weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park with Rains Racing in the Pirelli World Challenge Championships. We showed what we are capable of, and showed what our team and partners are looking forward to in the future. Unfortunately some bad luck side lined us in a couple of the sessions but we consistently had the speed for a top five finish in the #26 Unitronic Volkswagen USA Jetta GLI!
My teammate Andrew Rains also suffered some miserable luck but did a fantastic job in his first pro race!

We are heading back to the shop to start preparing for the next race in June. I am confident we will come back stronger and better!

Thanks to all of our partners for the continued support! We could not do any of it without your help - National Bank of Commerce, Milltek Sport, AfriGIS, Black Forest Industries, Portable-Shade USA LLC, OMP Racing, Unitronic, RacingLine North America, and State Traditions!

Oh Canada, here we come! #HeadingNorth
We are on our way! The excitement is building as we make the long trip up to Canada for the debut of our Rains Racing, Pirelli World Challenge Championships program debut.

It has been a long road to get us to this point, but I couldn't be prouder of everyone involved with this team! Just being able to get to the race track is a victory for us, and hopefully we are able to bring home some decent results. Follow us live at www.world-challengetv.com throughout the weekend.

Thanks for the support of all of our partners, fans and family, we couldn't do this without you!

Not too sure what to make of this new Volkswagen USA commercial, but it is funny!

Volkswagen made a cat video. It's REALLY WEIRD.
Somehow, this is about leasing. Or cat cosplay. Or maybe taking hallucinogens.

Well, another great weekend at Barber Motorsports Park. Unfortunate that our Rains Racing Touring Cars weren't able to compete (Due to the full schedule the TC class skipped this round of the PWC championship).

However, I still had a great weekend hanging out with some of my PWC and Indy Car friends! Special thanks to KV Racing Technology for the kind hospitality during the IndyCar Series race, and also a big shoutout to Children's of Alabama (Racing for Children's) who use the racing environment to help raise money for childhood cancer patients!

It is a pity these good looking Rains Racing Volkswagen USA touring cars don't get to go out and play with the rest of the Pirelli World Challenge Championships this weekend at Barber Motorsports Park, but we are looking forward Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in under a month! #Alabama Gearheads
