Who Will Win...part 2

The polls predict I will finish 2nd at the Solo Nats this year.....but all the real candidates were not necessarily included. Either way, it never hurts to have extra motivation to take home the win.

Close Calls at the 2015 ProSolo Finale

0.265s away from my first ProSolo Finale win and 2 points away from my first overall ProSolo Championship. I feel like I drove well and had the fastest left-side time, but could not get done on the right course/overall. Oh, and I finished as the 34th qualifier for the Super Challenge...just two spots out!

Here's to ending up on the other side of some close racing for the Solo Nationals starting this Thursday!

Something New for 2016

A quick jaunt over to Phoenix this weekend and I have a new racecar sitting in the shop for next year. More details to follow. Should be exciting.

SportsCar's "Who Will Win" at the 2015 SCCA Solo Nationals

Chris Fenter is the pick in C-Street for 2015, but I got a mention in this year's article. We have a huge class so it will be a battle to see who can try to prove SportsCar wrong.

Coilovers vs. Tires on Mighty Car Mods

Mighty Car Mods did a test on lap time gain from swapping on some high-performance tires vs. a set of coilovers. Obviously it depends on which parts/tires you choose spring rates, car setup, the dirver etc....but it's still an interesting comparison for the trackday fanboys.

Taking the F150 up Pikes Peak

Our turbo-charged Pikes Peak hill climber......complete with pit bike in the bed

After the Colorado Championship Tour two weeks ago, I took the opportunity to drive up Pikes Peak. Being a Monday morning, the traffic was low and I didn't really get held up going up or down. As you can see from the photos below, the view was well worth it.

Heading back down

Rain storm trying to move in

And as soon as we got down the mountain, the storm moved in and the peak disappeared

Give the topic and the hill climb going on last weekend, check out the TV Coverage of the 1995 Hill Climb. It's almost worth it just for the retro commercials:

Colorado Championship Tour Autocross with a view of Pikes Peak

Good result this past weekend in my final National SCCA event before Solo Nationals in September. After a very late arrival Friday night, I ran first heat on Saturday and wrapped the weekend with a win on Sunday. Ali and I took a short vacation after the race and went hiking in the Garden of the Gods and then I drove up the famed Pikes Peak highway. With the hill climb coming in two weeks, it was very cool (/terrifying...) to drive to the 14K foot summit. More photos from the event to follow.

Here is my onboard video:
