Thanks. It was a great course. I want to say that they copied it from one of the Lincoln courses a few weeks before.

The "eyebrow slalom" as people like to call it with some walloms at the ends of it kinda does give it the feel of the east course at Nationals. For our local SCCA event, last weekend in Packwood, we adapted the entire east course onto the site. Though, with Packwood's elevation changes, we had to adjust things here and there, and it gave it an entirely different feel, but still had some of the elements, including the "eyebrows", and also a modified ring of fire (that didn't actually catch on fire, this time).

Couple from today. First is in the Focus. The course was pretty damn fast, so there's a lot of sketchy areas that I could get through with my foot to the floor. Fun course to drive, but not the best for an H-stock car in PAX class.

This one was in time only in the afternoon. I got to hop into a BSP prepped 944 S2. It was the first time in the car, very easy to drive, and also very fun.

We had the finale of this years autox season this past weekend. We do a shootout style to determined the overall champion for our region. Start with 16 drivers and after 2 runs you keep your fastest time and the top half move on to the next round. I ended up getting 3rd and my tire warmer knocked me out and got 2nd.

My fastest run

The Chicago Region SCCA Solo season has ended and I closed out the season strong . These two events moved me from fourth to third in class for the season. I missed second by 1.01 points Next season that Region class champ jacket is mine .

Former ST National Champ and current STC bride's maid Jason Frank broke his hub/axle so he jumped in my CRX and showed me how hard you can drive a 22 year old Honda.

His 1.1 second margin is much more obvious from the exterior.

My best run from the second day.

As much as I love the CRX, I will always love and miss racing my Focus. Once I get it de-turbo'd and back to DD duty I'll have to take it out just for fun in FSP.
