SCCA NER's Speedway Slalom

Today was the second points event with SCCA NER over in New Hampshire Motor Speedway! I really do enjoy coming to the events that are hosted here because it's a nice change of pace from the usual Devens Airbase. You get to hear all of the road racers running along the road course, have lunch at the in-field, sit in the stands to watch the cars after you have prepped, etc. I was able to adjust fairly quickly as the course was very similar to the two we had run last year; sweeping turn after sweeping turn.For this event, I was MORE than ready to compete, as I had been working hard with the help of Jeff and Shane to make sure I got Serenity up to par. Since last event, I received the Black Halo Racing ignition system, a loaner midpipe (the exhaust system is not complete just yet), and brand new 255/35 Hoosier R compound tires. Only a select few pieces are left to finish this puzzle, such as the full exhaust, my flywheel/clutch, and a final tune. Considering I'm not done yet, I'm quite pleased with Serenity's performance so far.
Shane was able to take out Ruby today and have some fun with her, but it looks like she still needs a few final things before she's ready to start shaking up Street Touring S. As for my results, I came in 1st place in BSP! As if that wasn't enough good news though, I also made 10th place in PAX, which isn't an easy feat! All three results can be found here. A few minor adjustments and I think we'll be good to go for the upcoming race in New Jersey. Below are videos of my fastest run in the morning, fastest run in the afternoon, and then Shane's fastest run. I may have done well at the Speedway, but now it's time to step it up back home at Devens. Stay tuned.
