    Apologies are in order for our neglecting to keep you informed and up-to-date on the race happenings.  Life seems to get in the way for all of us from time-to-time.  We will be recapping the first three events of the 2006-2007 Grand Bayou Road Race Series.  This is something new - the series now runs 6 consecutive months during the winter.  In southern Louisiana, racing in the winter sure beats the heat during the summer months.  It also frees up drivers and cars to race elsewhere during the rest of the year. 

    Mike decided not to drive Allan McDonnel's #44 Viper GTS this year in order to take care of some personal responsibilities at home.  However, this doesn't keep us away from the track!  We still have drivers and cars that need our attention and TLC at the events.  We certainly can't let our friends down! 

    We would like to welcome Doug Boozer to the race series.  Doug is a customer of Mike Poupart Motorsports and is racing his newly acquired #20 Panoz GTS in the GTO class. 

    We can't remember all of the details of the beginning of the season.  The events have been somewhat overshadowed by the loss of our friend, Jose' Gonzales, who died in an automobile accident on the way home from the October event.  In short, Johnny Walter, driving the #98 Super Production Corvette, has won the first three races in the series and, with three races left, has a good probability of winning another championship in Super Production.  As Doug settles in with his new car, he has managed a couple of second place finishes in his first two races and shows improvement each time out.  Stay tuned!  We'll have more to come and promise to keep you better informed for the rest of the season.
