Here's the home site for your local SCCA. Take a look at the calender, and you'll find plenty of events.

Don't worry about waiting for your suspension. Go out and race regardless. You'll have a much better idea of how your new suspension needs to be setup and what it has actually done if you go out and race on the stock suspension first anyway.

On my first race day, I was beaten by a good driver in a Buick LeSabre (supercharged). ANYTHING can be fast, and you'll kick yourself for missing an event once you see how fun it can be.

well just got the suspension installed except the the back springs (can't afford alignment) But it is GREAT (your have imagine tony the tiger from frosted flakes jumping up ya'll ramber the comercial) smooth has glass aleast with the 15" stockers. My car feels only limited by my tires and rims now. Can't wait to get the back springs in.

I just learned that I have monday off. So that means I have a good chance of making it on Sunday.
