Virginia Autocross Championship - Racin' on Concrete this Weekend

I am at the Detroit Airport now traveling to Norfolk, VA for a crucial race this weekend. My Dad and I are entered in the Virginia Autocross Championships which is an annual two-day event hosted by the Tidewater Sports Car Club that is basically a showdown between all of the autocross clubs in Virginia. State Champions in each class and the best overall club will be crowned (I'm sure I will be the only competitor living in Texas). Also, on Saturday there will be a Top 16 PAX shootout where the top 16 PAX finishers from Saturday will duke it in a bracket tournament for a free set of Toyo tires.

We will be racing at the Littlecreek Amphibious Base in Norfolk, VA in our STX Mini JCW Hardtop. Littlecreek is a perfect slab of concrete right on the Chesapeake Bay that is the launch site for Navy hovercrafts...very cool. The key for this weekend is the conrete surface at this site because the Solo Nationals in Lincoln, NE is three weeks away and is also on concrete. We will be working on our driving and setup for concrete surfaces this weekend in addition to trying to take home some free tires!
