Made some last minute plans to race with the Tri-State Sports Car Council here in Illinois. I was in a class of five in STF with my two closest competitors from the SCCA competing as well. I managed to pull out the victory in my 2000 Focus sedan over the Scion TC, VW Rabbit, and a few newcomers. I knew I was doing well overall but I had no idea that I was laying the smackdown. I took #1 overall on PAX out of over 110 competitors!!!!! My best PAX finish ever!!!!!!! Here is my fastest run, enjoy!!!

Thanks Norm!! It was a blast, even on skinny old RE11's!!! Although this was a smaller club there were at least 5 SCCA National Championship trophy winners competing. Can't wait until the Peru Match Tour!! STF and the Focus has a shot at winning!!!

More autocross pRon. Don't worry, there are no horrible story lines, bad acting or dated music.

Its nice to see so many focus in the autocross events, how do they handle? im about to turbo mine and i plan on getting into open lapping events as well as other track related events here in my area. how do you think a 350-500HP turbo SVT focus would handle this event? and what type of aftermarket coilover kit would you recommend? im looking at the K-Sport coil overs and i know ill need better brakes to. need to start researching that lol

Last weekend I took my Focus down to Grissom Air Force Base in Peru Indiana to compete at the SCCA National Match Tour. STF had a class of seven for the weekend and Saturday is the battle for class. I managed to pick up 0.6 seconds on my fourth and last run of the day to narrowly edge out a Honda CR-Z by 0.065 seconds and take the Third Place Trophy in STF.

http://youtu.be/jtXX6kmModU

Then on Sunday was the Last Chance Qualifier, for which I did not match my previous days best time and did not advance, that way. After the LCQ was done they had a raffle for the final eight spots in what is The SCCA Match Tour Super Shootout 64 competitor bracket eliminator. I actually got one of those raffle spots in the Match Super Shootout and my first competitor was a CP Camaro who previously had me out PAX'd by almost 2 seconds, no pressure no worries two more runs for fun. But as it turns out the Camaro driver hit a cone on his first run and was behind me time-wise by 0.4 seconds with his cone penalty PAX. I had put down my fastest time of the weekend and then improved on it on my next run while hearing over the radio the Camaro had DNF'd his last run!!!!! Slow car for the win in round one!!!! Round two brought an STR S2000 and we only get one run in round two, he got me by 0.7 seconds PAX.

The Sports Car Club of America National Match Tour is a blast and I highly recommend it to any Autocrosser. We got to watch one of our regions own win his bracket and go on to the final four against arguably 3 of the fastest drivers in the US. He got the smackdown like I did but he made the final four and to cheer him on was an adrenaline packed experience in itself. Not to mention the laughs when Carter Thompson's SSM RX7 hands out the whooping by 1.8 seconds as we tell our guy, "it was close, you almost had him". Good, no, GREAT TIME!

Prior to that was my second event with the Tri State Sports Car Council and my first event on the new Dunlop ZII. I managed to win my class by 0.085 over second place Scion Tc. Ended up 10th of 113 overall PAX. The Dunlops were fairly new with 150 miles and several wet/drying laps on a racetrack.

I will be racing with TSSCC again tomorrow, video to follow. Enjoy!
