It’s not too often that you see a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona with blue, painter’s tape numbers on it working it’s way around an Autocross course. But yesterday at the WNY-SCCA’s Autocross at New Era Field, I got see it!
Spoiler: It wasn’t very good, haha.
The Dodge was running in the 60-second range where most cars were in the 40-45 second range. But I don’t think anyone cared. It was just awesome seeing it out there actually being driven!
Edit: Apparently this Daytona is the car that was featured on the show ‘Graveyard Carz’
All in all it was a great, but HOT and long day. This was our final local event of the season and 108 people ran. It was great having such a turnout, but a ton of work.
I, personally did well. My STX RX-8 won the Novice Index again and I would have finished in 2nd place in the regular Street-Touring class, so apparently I’m doing something right. This was the first time I finished in the top quarter in PAX as well. I got one more OOR event in a couple weeks and might sneak in one more after, but then the RX-8 is getting parked in the garage and undergoing some major work to make it into a much more serious STX-prep car.
