The region I normally run with averages 30 people which I'm sure compared to a bigger area is a pretty low turn out. We normally do 8 runs. The region I'm running with this weekend had 3 THREE!!!!! people show up at their last event lol, I didn't go either. They are stuck using a crappy lot that is way out of the way and it isn't worth it for most people around here to drive too plus they had bad weather that day. Until they can find a better lot somewhat closer to population they aren't going to be able to do much.

So yeah... I took it to an alignment shop on Monday and other than a bit of toe on the right-front, nothing was out of the ordinary. I asked the guy if I could have a look while the car was up on the hoist and everything looked and felt solid. Wheel is fine, tire is fine too, holds air no problem and doesn't feel any different. What a relief...

The rain made things interesting and really shuffled up the standings. Each course was always a learning experience to go through, and all the awesome people made every weekend great.
