What a fun weekend we had at the Hotchkis/NMCA Autocross. I had recently finished doing a lot of upgrades to the front suspension through the Hotchkis Speed Shop, and was honored when I when I was invited by Rob Byrd to come out on the Friday for the test and tune day. I was able to break in my new front end and alignment & I can definitely now feel the differences from what the car does/needs vs my driving skills, and where I need more horsepower (and probably better braking after that), and also better myself as a driver. I am finally building up the confidence to be able to push the car to where it's never ran better and more stable. This made a huge boost to my driving and made my Sunday race day even that much more enjoyable. And not to forget to mention hanging out with all my racing friends and especially that great cheering section!!
Again I'd like to Thank the Racing Byrds for putting together and running such a fun event, John Hotchkis Jr. for sharing his love of driving and helping keep our classic muscle cars driving like they just came off a showroom floor, and helping us have a place to really enjoy our cars for they're built to do!
I didn't get any action shots this time, but I hope you guys enjoy these pictures!
