Fort Riley just outside of Junction City, KS played host to the second event in the SCCA MidWest Divisional Solo series on July 19-20, 2014. Helicopters served as some unusual spectators to the event lining the far side of the course. Military personnel were encouraged to compete, spectate and ride along during the event. Just over 90 entrants competed in the 2 day event in a variety of classes including stock, prepared and modified.

The Road to Nationals Auto-X

29 Jul , 2010   Rockcas  

With Nationals approaching Labor Day week its time to start the prep work. This will be my first time, but by thinking ahead I should be ready both mentally and with the car.

First step to take is annalyzing the driver and the car.   Is the car setup right or still in need of adjustment.   Nationals is only a month and a half away so ordering parts and tires now is important.   Do the tires have enough tread or broken in properly.   There is still a Divisional and ProSolo on the National’s site if needed to break in a new set.  The Driver is just as important as the car.   Mentally preparing by taking the Dail In or Test-N-Tune course to learn how to setup the car and drive will greatly improve times and the feel of the car.

Next, need to make sure to sign up and take advantage of every contingency qualified for  If I place in a top position and find that I left a new set of tires or cash sitting on the table becuase I didn’t register would not be good.

Last, making sure I have all the right tools and gear for the event.  Bringing plenty of water, sun block and rain gear will ensure that the event goes well  and help maintain focus for when driving on course.  The most important thing to take away from the event is to have a good time, make some new friends and improve driving skills.

May Autocross at Lincoln Air Park

18 May , 2010   David  

Sunday was the 2nd event of the year for the Project: BMW 135i STU car. It was the 2nd points event for the Nebraska SCCA region held on the Nationals site at Lincoln Air Park. It was a very moist day, with mist for most of the day causing very wet track conditions. Running in a class dominated by AWD vehicles, rain is not an ally for the BMW 135i.

Lincoln ProSolo

4 May , 2010   David  

SCCA ProSolo’s always bring some fun action with cars going head to head on nearly identical courses and a drag strip start, last weekend’s Pro Solo event held May 1st & 2nd, 2010 at Lincoln Air Park in Lincoln, NE was no different. There were some great class battles all weekend, which made for some great action. The Super Challenge ended with a blast of wind, sand and rain as Patrick Washburn, in his Lucky Lugnut Racing Honda Civic defeated James Wilson, the STX class winner in his Subaru Impreza WRX for the Super Challenge win.
