    I've been hiding in a massive mess at work that seems to have no end. I'll spare eveyone the details until the BBQ next weekend, after I've had a chance to put a dent in the beer cooler...

    Right now we are planning on leaving on Saturday August 25. We are going to make a vacation out of the drive. So far it is Scott, Lois, Lisa & Me. Scott is working on some plans for places to visit along the way. We can discuss details at the BBQ & or Roundup next weekend.
    There's nothing more to see here, now move along...

    Autocross ringer needed...

    So the autocross at the SMR is held in a parking lot with some imovable obsticals (power poles & buildings). But the coarse is pretty tight which is perfect for an SVO. The event is an elimination event & the top 16 are in the running for the cash prizes. So we need to put a ringer in the event. We need Stacey Schmitt to show them how an autocross is run. Dave I don't want to hear how you are so much faster cause we all know that ain't true. Although those supercharged V-8's may be more insulted by an SVO driven by a barefoot Kentuckian like Dave.

    Mitch just taught us how to talk smack if you don't participate in the event!

    Seriously, Stacey and I both plan to drive the autocross. I encourage others to drive it as well The more SVOs we get to run the autocross course, the better chance we have to make a good showing.

    After looking at a few of the videos (link above) and seeing how nice the cars look, I guess I'm going to need to wash the 2R this year!

    Dave, can Stacey drive the autocross barefoot if that's what it takes to get Mitch to shut up?

    Limited run of Sturgis SVOCOP T-shirts

    There will be a limited run of SVOCOP Sturgis T-shirts printed up. I will post the details after I have the artist clean up the logos. The shirt color will be a Royal Blue which is pretty close to Ford Blue.

    The folks going to the event will have first dibs on the shirts, any additional shirts will be sold on the site.

    ANd I will have limited trailer space to bring any items friends want for their car or projects ! I will make an effort to offer BIG items delivered to the event that many don't get a chance at buying.

    NOS hoods, fenders, wheels
    or heavy motor parts (can bring o ringed blocks and parts or assemblies)

    If you want anything let me know NOW .

    P.S. Oh and I WILL HAVE A COOLER !!

    Dave, can Stacey drive the autocross barefoot if that's what it takes to get Mitch to shut up?
    No if it's an SCCA sanctioned event.

    SCCA requires drives to have full-foot, closed toe shoes:

    4.3.4 Footwear
    Shoes covering the entire foot shall be worn.


    She can take her shoes off immediately AFTER the run though. But that's not a good summertime sport around here.

    Passengers, however, are definitely free to have sandles. I'm not sure about barefoot.

    Check out www.sturgismustangrally.com or http://www.sturgisdowntownrvpark.com/. If there were more room at the rental house I would say you could camp there, but space will be limited with 5 driven Mustangs & 4 trailered SVOs.
