Not only does the van hold everything I need for a day of racing, it also doubles as a place to sleep. I would of had to wake up at 3:30 AM to make it down the day of, and I did not want to drop money on a motel for a few hours. With layers of blankets, winter gear, and the liquid courage of a handful of beers, I slept like a baby through the night.
This event had a handful of Detroit chapter members make the trip down. Made a lot of new friends. About 30 entrants total, but only three vehicles and four entrants in the stock front class this weekend.
Probably my favorite entrant(s) were twin ‘07 and ‘10 retired Crown Vic Interceptors with matching ‘05 Mustang GT wheels on all seasons. Each had an aftermarket exhaust. It was their first time RallyCrossing, but they had so much fun. It was just as fun watching them barrel through the course.
Took 2nd in class behind a talented driver behind a Focus. I couldn’t get a good rhythm going all day, but still managed to hold my own. I blame the fact I had to wear #66 instead of by standard #69 ;)
Every event I attend makes me love RallyCross even more. There is a two night event about 2 hours from me in a few weeks. Depending on work schedule, I’ll try to make it. Otherwise this might be the last one for the season. I can’t wait for next season already!
