I ran FSP in the NNJR SCCA for a couple of years. I would either be alone or competeing against some new odd driver every event. So I just have a big collection of first place "attendance trophies"

The only cool thing was that I ran against some guy in an original mini cooper a couple years ago. I beat him and his father. Saw him at one event, we never spoke and I never saw him again at AutoX.

Turned out that through a mutual friend, this was the guy that eventually built the roll cage in my car now that I have crossed over to road racing. Small world.....
