Earlier today, SCCA Solo II/autocross event No. 6 at Family Arena in St Charles and the usual assortment of highly entertaining vehicles, fast drivers, chills, thrills and the occasional spin-out.
And yeah, while I’m the owner of an LBC and proponent of competing in autocrosses in old sports cars, I have to admit: with the Boeing Sports Car Club, SCCA and Misfit Toys series, there’s a fair amount American heavy metal taking to the pavement. Yeah, Mustang and Camaro owners turn out in good numbers, but you gotta applaud anyone who’s willing to get out and autocross a ’70 AMC Javelin, ’70 Plymouth Road Runner or a ’68 Chevy Nova.
Still several events left in the season, come on out and watch for a while. Or, better yet, bring a helmet and go for a spin!
