This years event brought in 40 Autocross participants to the Mid American Air Center located in Lawrenceville, IL.  The weather was close to perfect on Saturday October 13, 2012.  The Autocross started at 10am and lasted until 4pm.  The course was long and competitive.  With only 6 tenths of a second determining the winners.  We divided our autocross into 2 groups, Old class and New class, and we are representing the age of the car here not the driver...  
 I would like to mention the Top 3 in both categories.
Old Class
1.  Billy Utley       -  driving a 72 Nova had his fastest time at 40.204
2. Bret Voelkel   - driving the Ridetech 33 Ford with his fastest time at 40.789
3. Tom McBride - driving the Ridetech 48 hr camaro ran a 40.839 for his fastest time

New Class
1. Paul Gibson      -    driving a Black RX-8 got his fastest time at 40.820
2. Casey Szink     -    driving a Subaru WRX got a 42.682 as his fastest lap around
3. Mark Golovin    -   driving a Camaro came in with a 42.824 as his fastest

Autocross Winner Billy Utley gets his picture taken with Lawrenceville's Mayor Brian Straub.
Autocross Winner Paul Gibson was not able to get his picture taken with his award but we would like to Congratulate him as well.  
Congrats to both our Autocross Winners!

Cruise to Borowiak's IGA & Fun on the City Square

This year we decided to have our annual cruise from Mid American Air Center up to Borowiak's IGA.  The DC Dawgs were cooking some serious rib-eye sandwiches, trying to raise money for their upcoming trip to Washington DC this winter.  We also tried something new, in conjunction with the City of Lawrenceville we arranged an antique tractor show up on the square that happened early on on Saturday.  Up on our city square we had local vendors selling products and food, we had a beer garden and live entertainment, Thank You Mayor Struab for commitment to our event and for your enthusiastic energy you spread though out our community!
We had tons of door prizes for our car show participants and want to thank all the local and non local business owners for all the wonderful donations that were made to make this event happen.

Drag Racing was canceled due to gusty winds

October may have brought cool weather this year but it also brought in some vicious winds on Sunday.  We had to call off the 1/4 mile drag passes due to mother nature.  We were thankful the rain held off so we got to enjoy  Bud's BBQ lunch a little earlier than expected.
Sunday ended with our usual trophy presentation, more door prize giveaways and our t-shirt launcher t-shirt giveaway.
We are so very thankful for everyone who helped out with the event and to those who came out and participated in the event. 
We couldn't't do it without all our awesome sponsors, helpers, friends & family who are dedicated and work so hard to make this all happen in such a short amount of time.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
