Thanks Ed. Hopefully someone got more info.
I'll ask around as well Jason. I'll reach out if I hear anything. Likewise, if you can do the same, I'd appreciate it.

Does anyone know who Stan used?
I'm looking also and I spoke with Stan about it before his passing. He mentioned it was the Maaco in Riverside and that he knew a person there that did superb work. But I never got his contact...

Looks like I had the right idea with my line choices but I couldn't get the car to keep rotating mid-corner. I think these tires are dying of death after only ~70 runs #streetclasslife

Re: 2019 Cal Club Autocross School and Sunday Practice

As a clarification, approved Instructors do not need to sign up additionally for the Sunday practice as that would be complementary as a thank you for your time and volunteerism at the school.

Re: Nominations for 2020 E-Board and Directors

I want to throw my hat in the ring to run for the one vacant director position next year. I would be happy to do double duty and continue on as Comms Chair, but if I can't, then I'd like to go for the director position.
