AutoX gives the focus a chance to shine, I mean there is only so much fun you can have at the drag strip, I mean 1/4 times can only get so low before major money and tuning is put in, but autocross is all driver and speed isn't everything

This was my first season racing and the Focus did great!! I beat my buddy in his 2003 Civic and a few other cars. There is this Mazda protoge that I cannot beat. He has good tires and I just ran my staok ones. They about boiled over on my last run!!! I need to get some tires before spring season. BTW I ran in the stock class

No it was just a normal Protoge. He had been racing a lot long than me. He has a Cat-back also which is allowed in H-Stock. and you can put on a K&N filter and thats all the mods you can do besides tires.
