Garlic Garage has had a few issues with our white truck. It is currently unable to tow our trailer. Our awesome family at Team Penske especially Travis Geisler and Chris Yoder found us an amazing black Penske rental for the next three weeks

Thank you Bruce and Jackie for your continued support during the FireKeepers Casino 400 to feed those in need at the Jackson Interfaith Shelter.

Garlic Garage Bruce and Jacki would like to Thank all of our wonderful helpers for another great season. 2018 had a few challenges with our Iron Man Dan not able to do Daytona and Atlanta at the beginning of the year. Frank GORDON and Dan Miller rearranged their choices to be there. Very thankful to them. We lost all of the RCR teams so had to cut back on helpers and rearrange some of the races. Annette Bixler was unable to travel this year after Richmond race per Dr. request. Still have a flight ticket for you 🤞. Frank Gordon’s beloved dogCharlie passed and we were able to change his flight. Funny thing when we sent David Charest to pick him up at the airport in Chicago, yep he went to the wrong one. Sam and Debbie Powers lost Debbies mother and then welcomed another great grandchild, little girl this time. Dawn Charest also welcomes her first grandchild, a boy just as season ending. We welcomed a few new helpers in Michigan thanks to Connie Kiser-Walker, Ester Brown and Rhonda Brown, then Patty Brown helped in Indy. We will take all of you next year also. Phyllis Cross of Michigan moved to Chandler AZ and brought her sister Dee Wheeler to fall Vegas and Fall Phoenix. Hope to have you both on west coast swing. We were surprised by John Brandon returning fromGuam early and a quick visit to Fontana. Hope to see you in Texas.
Of course we could not do what we do without Dan Duane, Dawn Charest, Sam and Debbie Powers, April DeHaan, Regina Mayerchak, Tom and Pam Sanders, Dan Miller, Frank Gordon, Manny Velazquez, Richard Pound Jr, Jennifer DeClerck, The Wenger crew,
Kareena Best, and all listed above. Special thank you for Matt Christy for codriving from Vegas to Richmond the day your cruise ended and NO time to even see Vegas. Very special thank you to Lyndell Shuey for co driving from Phoenix to Homestead and working both races. Hope you can help again next year.
We hope you all have incredible holidays and hopefully will see all of you again in 2019.

Many many Thanks
Bruce and Jacki

We are happy to provide for the awesome people at Jeremy CLEMENTS Racing

Garlic Garage is off to Bristol. Yes it's the baby Bristol trailer. We have a love hate relationship with the Bristol track. Love it. Hate that we have to do the very time consuming swap to get in to the track. Oh well the racing is worth it.

04/15/2017

So the Garlic Garage has been on the road for 8 weeks from Daytona to Fontana and back.
Our new truck and trailer had a few minor issues but Bruce was able to fix them, so all was good.

We had a great group of helpers Daniel Duane, Sam Powers, Marquis Andrews, Lyndell Shuey, George Stephenson, Frank Gordon, Dawn Charest, Amber ERVIN, Bethany Maycroft, Jeannie Andrews, Lorna Fortin, Debbie Powers, and RoseMary Rodgers. Thank you all very much for you awesome help. We could not be The Garlic Garage without you.

We hope you all have a Happy Easter with family and friends

02/15/2017

WOW. 2017 Season is officially started for the Garlic Garage.

Off season was very busy for us. We had to get another trailer. That's the 5th one in 8 years if you lost track. This will be the last one. Bruce with some big help from David Charest did an awesome job getting everything we need inside. Myself and my incredible helper Dawn Charest set up the inside cabinets the way we wanted them.
One on One Brand did an amazing job wrapping the trailer. Originally the wrap was supposed to coordinate with our blue truck HOWEVER, Yes we had to get yet another truck, the new trailer had air brakes and the truck could not be converted. So just last Thursday Bruce flew off to Oklahoma and got a white freightliner. If your counting that also makes 5 trucks.
So far in-debt we will never get to retire. Good thing I really love what we do.

11/21/2016

WOW. 2016 Season is over. This year went very fast. They say the years go faster as we get older🙄

We also hope you will all return to help again in 2017 because without you we could not be the Garlic Garage.

So Garlic Garage has had a rough few weeks. On way from Kentucky which was hot and wet( Thank you Dan Duane Mark Andrews Dawn Charest) we blew a hub. Bruce had a spare and fixed it on a busy Connecticut freeway. Loudon was hot and wet again Thank you Dan Duane Mark Andrews Manny Velazquez Rick Kaufman. Leaving Indy which was brutal. Thank you Danny Duane Mark Andrews and Tom Sanders for working in the heat. 1.7 miles from hotel we got a flat tire and blew yet another hub ( different from flat). Collecting all the parts today after ordering yesterday and then putting back together.

This morning at 7:00am Bruce's Father passed away.

Yes Garlic Garage has had a rough few weeks.

04/04/2016

Off to Texas this morning. The west coast swing went great. Had enough helpers despite Marks broken foot before DAYTONA and then George getting mad and leaving during Daytona. Mark comes back in Texas. Dr says he's all better. John BRANDON will be very missed for the next 4 years while he serves our country in Guam. Texas won't be the same without you
We spent the off week in Jackson Hole with our kids and grandson. Had an awesome time with Marisa JASON and spoiling Henre
Still some openings this season and a few of you we have not heard from yet
Text if you are interested.

Kentucky was great. No one got hurt and no wind spurts to damage tents or any thing else. We got packed up by half way Thank you Danny and April DeHAAN Was a person down due to health. Hope you feel better soon Annette Bixler. You were missed for more reasons than just your help. Praying for you.

07/13/2015

So Daytona was very very hot and long. Bruce had heat stroke on Friday and Amber was sick on race day. We made it thru and finished packing up Danny Jacki and Bruce just as the race started at 11:30. Beth worked twice as hard I think because Amber was not there and she had to leave at 7:00. Thank you all for the very hard work

Hey ya'll, please take a moment to read this and like/comment and share the original post with everyone. Very unprofessional considering how loyal we are to them. Thanks everyone! #shameonyouHilton #DiamondStatusFAIL

CANCELLED WITH OUT NOTICE. On Sept,14,2014 I booked 4 rooms at the Hampton I-95 in Florence , SC for Sept, 3-7, 2015. While on my Diamond reservation page on Thursday June 25, 2015 I noticed these reservations were no longer on my page, I stay at Hilton hotels a lot in my 270 days a year in hotels and check my reservations at least once a month. I was on my page in May and these reservations were still there. I called the hotel and Terry said NO ONE TOLD YOU WE CANCELLED THEM, She then transferred me to the sales dept. I left a message asking what happened? NO ONE HAS CALLED ME BACK. I Then called the Diamond desk, they called the hotel, came back to me, she said the hotel cancelled because they could get up to $900.00 per night because it was race weekend and my price point was at their normal rate. She then transferred me to the complaint department , they said I cancelled these rooms on Dec 24, 2014 . THIS NEVER HAPPENED I have all emails for the past ten years of travel for reservations and cancellations , besides we had already been TOLD THE HOTEL CANCELLED. They filed a complaint and then called the hotel again, Terry said a new Hampton was opening in Hartsville, possibly before the race weekend. She would check with them, however, we would have to pay the VERY INFLATED prices for the race weekend not the prices I had originally booked. Terry has NEVER CALLED ME BACK. Seeing a pattern here? CAN NOT BELIEVE this is a policy the Hilton Corporation allows, as I was told by the complaint department and the hotel. The right to CANCEL RESERVATIONS ANY TIME THEY WANT TO WITHOUT NOTICE TO YOUR GUEST. If I had not checked, and the 8 of us just showed up at the hotel on September 3rd we would have had to sleep in our cars the entire week end. We currently have about 38-40 additional stays on reservation with Hilton hotels over the next 5 months, I am looking for alternative rooms with MARRIOTT. We can not risk being CANCELLED AGAIN. I plan on posting this complaint on every web site that books hotels, sporting events, weddings COULD YOU JUST IMAGINE A BRIDE BEING CANCELLED ON, Conventions and any where else I feel may be helpful to future hotel guests.

06/19/2015

The Garlic Garage will be off the road for the until July for some much needed rest and repairs. See you in Daytona
