Here is a video of my 3rd run on Friday Morning. Stock Auto V6. Thanks to everyone who made the Autocross possible. First time running at an autocross event and can't wait to attend another!

Phoenix was better...got there on a Thursday and we had two full days.

This year? Got there on Wed afternoon and MAN was it cool! Three FULL days of fun!

Next year?



Maybe I'll even get there an EXTRA day early! Hey...if I can get the time, you KNOW IT!


Can't wait to see my runs!

Tag, remember the auto cross at fest 1, we had to wait for the draggers to pass before we could keep making runs.... and the asphalt chewed up the tires after just 2 or 3 runs.... had a blast at all 3 so far. Can't wait for 4th

I didn't get to run at Valdosta....too busy. I imagine the black top wasn't as good as it could have been. Lord knows I wouldn't want my 1LE tires (oh, I hope, I hope!) to get chewed up next year. I liked the track set up that Pete and Rob had. I'd like to refine a few things, add some wider tires and rims, and give it another shot.

The runs were short enough to protect the cars, and the speeds high enough to really enjoy.

I think I lost 10 lbs from all the activity at the track on 3 days... what a great weight loss program!

Well, my ABS quit working.. Brake rotors in front are blue.. and Hoosier Tires are toast. But I had an absolute blast!

Time spent with EVERYONE at the AutoX track was worth it. I especially enjoyed the 1 on 1 session I had with Danny Popp (Driver of the Lingenfelter L28). That session alone was worth the trip!

Time to upgrade the Brakes... and a new set of R-series tires.

One of my runs though looking back I can now see where I could improve my run a bit, like braking later, getting on the gas sooner etc.

Thanks for the ride in the car Dan!

I was wondering about your brakes if you had eliminated the ABS, but got busy and forgot about it. Then remembered watching one of the videos I shot, the right front kept locking up on you.

I was nervous as hell when you threw me the winch controller to let your car out of the hauler.
