Welcome to the Internet home of
“Left Nut” (a/k/a “Lefty”)
“Right Nut” (a/k/a “Righty”),
and our motto is
Tighten up that nut behind the wheel!
Carl, over there to the right, is the “Nut” in question.
He came to visit from the nervous hospital, and decided he'd found a
new home, so he stayed. Things haven't been quite the same since.
We hold Regional SCCA licenses
as Club Racers and Flagging & Communications volunteers. In
addition, we sometimes do trackside photography for the
Atlanta Region SCCA and from
the spectator areas for the pro events at

OK, we've gotten very busy the last months, and we've given
up on keeping this site up to date. We have set up a
under the name NutDriver Racing. That
page gets the updates these days. We'll try to copy the
pertinent parts over to this web site. If the past is any
guide, however, we will be less than fully successful.

After a long hiatus, we're back to trying to get
something together on our web presence. We're
putting a few updates here, but we're also
experimenting with other technologies. Hopefully
we'll get our stuff together and start catching up
with the backlog by the end of 2010. As a start,
we added a short video clip from the SpeedTV
coverage of the 2003 Petit le Mans. Their
end-of-coverage video montage contained a few
seconds of us on the grid in our “Track
Suits” so I added a link to the YouTube video to the
2003 Petit le Mans page.

Rest in Peace, Leto. 1992-2009. Leto was the oldest of

feet was badly swollen, so Lefty took him to the vet, only
to discover he was suffering kidney failure and congestive
heart failure, too. :-(

Last weekend was the fifteenth annual
American Road Race of
Champions (ARRC) at
Road Atlanta. We
again took the photos of the podium and winner's circle
activities for the Steeringwheel, the
newsletter. So most of the photos that aren’t in
the winner's circle area are from the front stretch.
We’ll be getting the photos up in galleries over the
next few days.

After messing around on other things for months, we're
finally trying to get this site up to date. So far, we've
simply added placeholders for some of the updates. In the
coming weeks, we plan finish the updates, hopefully before
the start of 2009.

about updating this site. He finally got the
podium photos up, on the
site, but not any of the other photos from the ARRC.
He’s going out of town for a week soon, but will try
to get more of the ARRC photos up soon after he returns. A
few of them are being used in promotions by the
Region and some of the series that run at the ARRC. In
the meantime, he’s playing around with minor little
stuff on the site.

||Put up "stubs" for what will become the home
page and gallery for the 2006
American Road Race of Champions.
We’re starting our fourth year as road racing participants
rather than spectators. We’re still just getting started in
many ways. So far, we’ve acquired four track cars, sold two,
and have two in the stable. The
Race Cars link will take you to
pages describing each of them and the
For Sale link takes you to a page
showing things The Nuts have up for
sale at the moment.
We’ll try to keep you posted about where we’re planning to race via the
journal. If you’re going to be at a race we’re attending, please drop by
and say hello.
- More track time!
- More racing!
