    No A/C?!? That's a race car!

    Dave did a good job but that was expected considering the considerable practice he had this past year....I think he has stirred the masses enough though that next year isn't going to be an easy win for him....Not sayin....Just sayin

    Tim was another one who spent the year practicing.

    Most of us were just lazy and did nothing this past year and it showed......but it's on like Donkey Kong now

    I missed a couple of local events this year, not next year. Pretty sure next year my street tires aren't going to make the cut with the close competition this year. That was one of the first things I said to my wife when I walked threw the door, Race Tires!, then I said I'm Home!

    True. But I am not as SMOOTH, as JayG. Who is? Dude finally got passed that first cone and his game was on! Nice driving Jay. I'm just looking, digging, scratching for Excuses...that's all.

    This brings back those good memories from my trip out last year! Hey Dave, did William get to do the auto-x this year? I see his car in the pics, but that arm looks a little to hairy.....

    William ran the autocross, and is MUCH improved over last year; and yes, that is his arm!

    It wasn't easy THIS year! Thank goodness for anger management!

    Competition is a good thing, it makes things much more fun; regardless of how you finish.

    got the bug bad as well. forget tires, i need all the seat time i can get! have isolated the issues in the 84 and have a plan to remedy them before next season. talking to the SCCA guys, between Cincinnati, Lexington, and Louisville, there usually is an auto-x every weekend of the month.

    thx for all the compliments peeps and congrats to everyone who participated!! It's was a very good auto-x. Yeah I had to dig deep like a mofo to get in the 32 second range for real! But that's was my fault for not auto-xing since last years event. what makes auto-x so challenging imo is that you're lucking to get that close to perfect run on a giving day. But luck was on my side this year and I'd rather be lucky than good anyday! Lmao.

    Gotta say that everyone, (but me), really stepped up their game on the autocross. I had no idea it was going to be that competitive! Lots of folks on race tires or near-race tires, and many have been active outside of the club event, getting in lots of seat-time. Many of the regulars were much better drivers than I had seen before. Thank God for Bruce and Ron who helped the North pull through!

    Gotta get into practice!
