So Far,So Good
I'm at the Texas Region autocross divisional. It's my second evening here, and today was the first day of racing. Of was warm, but not nearly as hot as it could have been. The weather threatened rain, and it spit on us a bit during the third heat, as I was taking my runs, but it wasn't enough to get the pavement wet.

I feel like I did horribly at first. I was killing cones left and right (well, I think I only took out one per run, but...), and my head was definitely not in the racing. But by my fourth and final run, I got my head in it and got a decent time. I'm 2 seconds ahead of the next guy in CSP. :-D

I'm glad you had a good time. Wish I could've been there to watch. I want to see someone take a large 4 door family sedan on the autocross track and see how it performs.

I actually answered my own question Maxima autocross

2 seconds?? Holy crap! Are there only the two of you? Still, that seems a huge gap for a divisional event. Sounds like it might be time to start planning for nationals. :)

Ended up being 2.345 seconds ahead of the second place finisher in CSP. There was a third person, too, who was another 2 seconds behind. CSP was a kinda spread-out class this time.

My competition wasn't difficult at this event, this time. I feel like I wouldn't do well at Nationals, but Dan was trying to convince me I could trophy in CSPL. It's not gonna happen this year, anyway, because I'm out of vacation time at work.
