Yet another very well organized event by KYSCCA is in the books. Thanks for the honor of being your Event Chair for Points Event #7, the weather stayed clear and we all had a blast! Your very challenging course was designed by Raymond Dzousa assisted by Shawn Lambert. SSS required no course “fixes”.
By the numbers:
90 drivers. First car off at 10:26 am, last car in at 2:10 pm. We did 445 timed runs in 224 minutes! (not counting Shawn Lambert’s 17 re-runs…).
Of our field of 90 drivers, 9 were there to race with our club for the first time (yes, a full 10%).
Since we finished early, we squeezed in about 25 minutes worth of fun runs, picked up our cones and headed to the “after-dinner” at El Nopal with 22 in attendance.
Today, plain and simple, was very smooth! It started with line free registration, Tony Shulthise’s rapid novice walk, our short but always amazingly informational drivers’ meeting, and then an excellent job by our grid, trailer, and course workers to keep everything moving smoothly. Everyone was paying attention and we got cars on and off course quickly, efficiently, and safely! Even RE Jamey McDaniel relaxed for a bit and hit the course to shag a few cones during the fun runs!
Autocross Sundays always have a few challenges…. We saw an Evo spewing lug nuts (but he found them). We also saw an Evo trying to shed its exhaust (hey, it was a heck of a launch though…). That one called for enthusiastic radio calls for a flag, which eventually flew and the exhaust was saved… We saw a spinout or two and a few brief red flags (ever seen a Volvo 242 spin? It is loud!). Lastly, we saw some incredibly fast runs (including FTD) by Bruce Domeck in a beautiful 1969 Lotus Elan!
Several positive comments from guests who call other regions home painted a picture we already knew. We have an excellent club that is laying down some awesome events. Keep talking about it on social media and let’s keep growing! See ya in August and drive well! Michael Salvo, Nissan 350Z

That’s right folks, a sprinkle here and a sprinkle there but in truth no rain. Today’s course was longer than average for this particular event site. 67 Drivers, 6 Runs Each, 48 Additional Fun Runs & Nachos by 4:00PM is a perfect Sunday.
Today’s event included many special moments:
-MC Russ Coleman’s “Fun Facts about Volvo”
-#fivedeep Fun Runs
We are so fortunate to have a club so willing to work hard and play hard all at the same time.
Please join us at the next event located at KFEC on Sunday, July 20, 2014

KYSCCA Points Event #5 Welcomed a lively bachelor party of five friends who love cars in a class all to themselves!
We also celebrated Father’s Day with a huge turnout of Dads & Kids of all ages that had never attended or driven at an AutoX. Some came from as a far as Toledo, Ohio. We are lucky to have great Dads & Kids in our club!
Sunday was a beautiful day for autocross! 93 Drivers & 40+ Fun Runs, is how this club celebrates summer. The new lot at KFEC had plenty of covered spectator space, indoor bathrooms for part of the day and our terrific sponsors supplied snacks & drinks to keep us energized and hydrated. After clean-up & trophies, some of the gang enjoyed a quick bite at El Nopal where even more talk about cars and racing was had over chips, queso, guac and possibly a margarita or two.
Did you know the KYSCCA is now considered a “Medium Size Region” with 200+ Members?! As a larger region we have better opportunities for sponsors, more AutoX and hopefully other SCCA Racing (RallyX Anyone?!?) Stay Tuned for some very exciting club news!

Attention to everybody attending KYSCCA Autocross Points Event #5. Due to circumstances outside the club’s control, the location for the event has been moved. We are still at the Kentucky Expo Center, but will the event will be moved to Lot J. This lot is located between Broadbent Arena & Old Cardinal Stadium. We are working on the logistics of how participates and guests enter the site & location of the padock/grid. More information will be available Thursday evening.
Due to the size of the site we feel we cannot provide a safe environment for karts to run. Karts will not be allowed to run at Points Event #5.
