I decided to go autocrossing at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe, LA for a 2-day weekend event. This was day 2.

I trailered my RS to this event. This keeps the miles off the RS and eliminates the need to swap from street wheels/tires to my autox setup. I stayed at a local hotel and arrived at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center around 8:00am. I got registered and passed tech. I ran in the Street Mod (SM) class again.

Track was dry but covered with sand & grit in places. Not a great venue, but it teaches car control due to sliding. Temps started at 44F in the morning and peaked at 73F. All racers got (8) runs broken up into (2) 4-run heats while working in between. I got to work first, then run. Then repeat. No Lunch break today.
