Event Chair Wrap-Up PE #8

Points Event #8 on August 17, 2014 was yet another great event for KYSCCA. Even though the weather wasn’t the best, we had a great turnout at 71 drivers. Both heats ran smoothly and without incident. We had some under tents, some with umbrellas, some wearing the always flattering trash bag and some tough guys who just didn’t care and walked around in the pouring rain (Matt Coleman). We saw the Coleman brothers (who are both used to not having any traction) in the very wet first heat wrestle their Corvette’s around to some impressive times. Definitely the passenger seat to be in if you were brave enough. The Second heat was dominated by Ray Dsouza in his 2009 Mazda Speed 3 AKA “front wheel drive family car” taking FTD and PAX.

Course design by Shawn Lambert was an exceptional addition to his list of exceptionally fun list of courses. Perfect for the conditions Mother Nature provided. The cone fetching was at a minimum which was very important due to the chalk lines being washed away in the first heat. Thank you Shawn.

After getting there at 5:30 am to help unload trailer, and doing whatever I could to help out, I realized how much actually goes into putting on one of these events. There is a hand full of guys and gals that show up when it’s still dark so that everything is ready to go when the rest of us show up. Without them, we wouldn’t have such great events. I can’t thank them enough.

I also want to thank everyone for having me as the event chair. It was a great experience. Looking forward to Points Event #9 on August 31, 2014!

LS Fest – NEED VOLUNTEERS!

OK Folks, The Holley LS Fest is coming up Sept 5-7 and the kyscca will once again be hosting the Autocross! Last year we had a blast and this year will be even bigger and better! We are looking for 2 things from our kyscca friends and members:
1. If you have an LS powered car enter the autocross and 3S challenge! Last year Russ Coleman went down, had a blast and nearly won the Autocross! The 3S challenge will be the most fun and coolest event you’ve ever driven in guaranteed and you will get so many runs you might need an extra set of tires to get home!
2. If your not entering the event we need volunteers to help work the event. The Autocross is held all day Friday and Saturday and the 3S Challenge is Sunday. We will feed you, put you up in a room and most importantly you will get a credit toward a kyscca autocross entry for EACH day you work! Included in all this fun is watching some big time (all LS Powered of course) Drift guys compete in between autocross sessions and some crazy fast drag cars going at it all weekend too! Last year we had a blast, this year will be even more fun so you do not want to miss out on this one so help the club in one of it’s largest fund raising events of the year and hang out with your buddies for a couple days surrounded by some cool people and cars! Post up here or message me if you can help, and I will be in touch with details.

-Brian Mason, Activities Director, KYSCCA
