Action shot by Tradd Slayton. Hoping he has a few more so I could buy a few from him.


Saturday, challenge day which was 3 morning runs in each of the 4 heats. the top 16 in PAX Index for each heat moved forward. I wasn't one unfortunately.

Getting prepped in the cold 39F morning:

First national event done. Zmax match tour was a great success. Well, I didn't win but I also wasn't DFL so I'm happy. I had a blast.

Fastest Run of the weekend was on the challenge day Saturday.

Sunday's fastest but dirty run:

Good thing I have a a spare set I bought for Nationals to run and not many more events planned before nationals.

How many events did the tires last you? Sounds like a fun weekend though!
I believe it was 10-12 events with two driver's at most of them and usually we got 5-7 runs at each event. They had about 130-160 runs on them and probably 1000-1500 street miles.

They would have held up better if I had managed the heat better on them when I first started running them on my car. Didn't help I was way over driving the ST not being used to the extra power and weight.

From my last event of the year this run would have put me in second in class.

Ended up 3rd in class, 25th in PAX. 46th in raw out of 119 drivers. Pretty happy overall.

Well ended up doing another event this year. Someone offered to pay for fuel and entry if I let them co-drive my car so I said sure.

Placed second in GS, 37th in Pax & 78th in Raw out of 177 drivers. Pretty happy with the results. Co-driver got edged out of 3rd place by a few hundredths and coned away a second place finish.

TC still drives better than you.[neener] Brett, it's a Focus, not a Subaru lol. I figured you would have gotten stuck in that little bit of mud, but I guess you had lady luck on your side that day lol.

I was very strategic in pulling into that spot for the picture. a few more feet and I would have been SOL.

Did a Track Sprint that was pretty much an autocross style event but on VIR's Patriot Road Course. This was my first time ever being on a track outside of riding with other people and it was very fun.

Unfortunately, I suffured some, "I have not idea what to do with my hands" and also "oh yeah, i need to downshift because this isn't a little autocross course".

Also, my camera died by my final runs where I was finally figuring out what I needed to do to be faster and closer to being on the racing line.
