I went to Blytheville with the same over confidence I had when I went to my first autocross 4 years ago. I had the mistaken idea
that I would be a mid-packer but after the first run I down graded my expectations to not finishing last. That also proved to be
overly optimistic. So with the clock showing that I had a lot to learn I started introducing myself to my fellow competitors and
asking questions. Everyone was very friendly and willing to give advice on how to improve. I saw Darrin DiSimo getting ready
to do a course walk and asked him if he would share his Miata setup with me. He spent the entire 15 minutes of the walk telling
me everything in detail and answered all of my questions.
Everyone liked the course and said it had the fast open feel of a National course. Corey tried out a few of the elements
on the last event we had at Grenada.
Saw a lot of people I already know and got to know many new fellow SCCA members.
It was a great weekend and I will go back for the TriState in the fall, I'm sure I'll be a mid-packer by then....
