New to the forums, first autocross! help!

I have a couple friends to autocross their Foci and talked me into buying one as a daily driver. I picked up in 03 SVT 5door with 140k. After replacing three wheels two wheel bearings and tires, It seems to be good. I took it out for its first autocross this weekend. What a blast to drive! This thing is great but I have one issue so far. A couple of the runs I couldn't find second gear, it just didn't exist. I wound up shifting to third and then back to second but it didn't work each time. For DD duty, it works fine.

I noticed an insert on the shifter at the trans that looks like it's broken or missing a chunI. Kind of a rectangular teflon insert. Is this a replaceable/available part?

Next AX is on the 19th and I'd like to fix it before then.
