We met over at Gateway a few years ago. Know your uncle Ed. Knew your dad. What you have put together looks great. Congrats. Good luck in '10.

Hey John!
I'm a first cousin of your Mom's on her mom's side and live in Birmingham. Your Aunt Bernadette sent us the information on the race here. My family is looking forward to coming. I hope we'll get to meet you! Would you mind telling us which day you're racing?

As a Cayman owner, it is fantastic to see you show the world that the Cayman is capable of being a competitive track car. Having two excellent drivers doesn't hurt either! You should be very proud of your accomplishments. Keep up the good work and I look forward to watching your future successes.

Hey John, I am a corner worker at MMP and have been enjoying watching you race in MPRA. You are always the class of the field when you are on the track. Wave back next time on your cool down lap.

Congratulations John...a great win!!!
Watching the Roex 24 was the first time I'd heard of Magnus Racing. You guys did an amazing job and a historic win. I am a life-time Porsche fanatic, my favorite number is 44, the paint scheme on the car is great, I'm from Missouri as John is...what's not to like! I'll be tracking you guys in the future and pulling for Magnus!

Best of luck this season. It was awesome to see you run at Miller Motorsports Park with NASA this past Saturday. Yes, I was the copper Porsche 944 racer you passed like I was standing still :)
