So last week I spent with 1100 of my friends driving around cones on a massive slab ofConcrete in Lincoln, NE. I towed out my friends STC Civic while he and his co-driver drove out the SooperKia. They ran tues/weds while I ran thurs/fri. Great time, lots of sun, lots of people/cars and awesomeness.

Here's a few pics:














And a fewof my vids:

So, I went expecting the SooperKia to be towards the bottom of the heap. Car is woefully unprepared with just the custome springed K-sports and a rear sway bar added. Stock engine, Stock exhaust, stock tune etc.

Our first course was the extremely long East course. It was a tick over a mile long. long straights and super tight turns. I knew my power advantage would help me here. There were a few "man up and hang on moments". I ended day one 15th of 25. Day two was on the shorter West Course.It had a lot more transitions. It was the kind of course that the smaller cars like the Mini and Mazda2 should have had an advantage on. After first runs I was sitting in 3rd because of all the cones being nailed. I ended up moving up 2 spots to 13th on day two. was .680 out of 10th and 1.4 out of trophies at 7th. Car had the top 10 finish in it, the driver did not.

All in all I am extremely happy with our first time out. I am looking forward to next year when we get a little more prep and a little more seat time in the car.

Very nice!!! Seems like the car doesn't push to much anymore. The torque gets you in the corner, lol.

You possibly got to hear my friend Larry McLeod (informally known as Lefty) announcing while you were out there. He also took 3rd in KM.

Good to hear that you and the car had that good a run in its first trip to Nationals. Let me know if you need a tire-warmer... I really would like to get my hand back in that game.

There's always an open seat anytime you want to drive!
