Episode style video of taking my 67 Mustang to Saturday's autocross

I thought you guys might enjoy the video I made about getting the Mustang to Saturday's autocross and what broke on it. I've been experimenting with making some YouTube episodes recently and I think this one came out pretty good.

Re: 2019 Schedule

I've also been curious about the August event as I've been trying to get a few potential CAM folks to come out and try an event and it looks like August might work. Is that date locked down and just simply missing from MSR? Or, is it not yet contracted or subject to some other uncertainty? August 2...

2019 Crows Landing CAM Challenge Highlights Video

I decided to mix it up and make a highlights video from the recent Crows CAM Challenge . Tried to incorporate more than just a video of my fastest runs so it goes into some of the behind the scenes with getting to the event and highlighting the other CAM cars and competitors with action footage and ...

Re: Excellent course this weekend

As I told you in person Reed, I too enjoyed the course and thought it was fun. Great way to show that reducing some of the top speeds and mixing things up doesn't mean that you can't still have a fun FLOWING course that appeals to a wide audience.

Only nit is holy DNF's for some folks :(

Re: Can I run Novice? Tire suggestions

295 width is no problem on the Camaro. Most run either an 18" wheel or 19" wheel to access the largest width tires though. 305 in 19" or 315/335 in 18" I don't know how the 295 on a 20" compares for height. It's much easier to fit the 19" wheels rather than the 18" though. I'm sure the Wong's can he...

This is the third year I've been competing with the Optima Ultimate Street Car series. I've podiumed in the GTV class many times and was 3rd at the three qualifying events I ran in 2017.

Re: 2018 Event Statistics

Interesting stuff for sure. Just remember DNF's aren't always do to course design and newbies. I can tell you one of the DNF's in group 2 came from a certain CAM driver that had someone whispering in their ear Saturday to try and carry more speed through corners. That certain CAM driver may have fou...

Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

tjennings, Definitely come on out! Mike covered it in his reply. CST is the easy answer. However, as a classic car fan and CAM driver I'd love to see you running with us "old cars" in CAM-T. From your description the only issues is how far under minimum weight you are. However, with your tire choice...

In the past I believe points cards could be renewed starting
10/1 and new points cards purchased after this date would be good for the following year. Is this still the case?

I'm excited to do a feature on John and his Mustang for the October slot on http://www.autoxandtrack.com this month. John's car is an amazing piece of history given he is the original owner and has continuously autocrossed it since 1969. Most probably know about him and his car. For the few that don...
