Where'd you race today?

I decided to go autocrossing at the Joint Emergency Services Training Center (JESTC) in Zachary, LA today.

I trailered my RS again 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 arrived at JESTC around 7:45am. I then registered and passed tech. Cenla SCCA split up the runs into (2) heats. I worked first, then I got (3) runs. No lunch (trying to beat the rain). Then I worked and ran my final (3) runs to complete the day. I ran in the Street Mod (SM) class.

Weather started with a 54F overcast morning, peaked with a high of 72F. Heavy cloud cover off and on. A little bit of rain during my last run session.
