We are an amateur endurance auto racing team. We hope to show everyone that they too can participate in performance driving. We are a relatively new team and learning right along with you. Our assumption is that you know very little to nothing about the sport but are interested in learning to drive better and eventually maybe even race in a local event of interest. We will cover all forms of racing and hope to be entertaining as well as educational.

WOOT Stands for Way Off Our (normal) Topic so this is NOT a driving or racing episode What began as a simple review of James Gunn's new movie The Suicide Squad quickly became a debate of the DC Extended Universe and the MCU from Marvel.

On this issue of Dominating with Dawson, we cover the new to Jennifer term of tossing a car into a turn.
