    Thumbs up Mid-Ohio adds Xtreme Tuner Triple Crown Challenge

    I just got a mailer from Mid-Ohio that an event had been added to my season pass. It is the Xtreme Tuner Triple Crown Challenge to be held August 21/22.

    "This event features a competition both on and off the track with cars similar to those made famous in the movie 'The Fast and the Furious.'"

    Competition is head-to-head in three categories; Speed, Style, and Sound - with the overall winner crowned King (or Queen) of the Streets.

    Sanctioned and judged by National Custom Car Association and International audio Sound Challenge Association. Plus NASA on track racing events!

    Sounds like HIN at the track. This is not on Mid-Ohio's web site yet, but watch www.midohio.com for more details.

    All the more reason to go and watch the carnage!

    I used to keep my boat at a marina across from the public ramps at a state park on Indian Lake here in Ohio. This is a really shallow lake, and when a storm comes or the wind picks up, it gets bad in a hurry.

    Whenever a bad storm was coming, I'd put my boat away, sit inside with the cooler, and watch the disaster of 8 side-by-side boat ramps with panicing people trying to load boats.

    I picture XTTCC to be something like that! (I actually don't think the public will be allowed on the track at speed. But one can always hope!)

    I arranged on last year at the Saturday night Grand-Am race. You know how many showed up from here, NAISIOC, LERSOC, etc? Me and one other guy! (Sorry, I forget the name... ) Lots of other guys that I talked to, but none hung out on any forums.

    Here's some pics:

    [edit: It was Vman. I had to go look at my own pictures to find out]

    Oh, yea, in answer to your original question; Yep, I'll be there. I have two season tickets, and plan to attend everything except probably vintage bikes.

    You guys want to plan something this early? There are several great events this year. ALMS (YAY!!!!) Grand-Am, this new XTTCC, and rumors of an open-seater (CART/OWRS/IRL?). Plus AMA SuperBikes, Vintage racing, vintage bikes, and the SCCA Runoffs.

    Should I post a poll with dates, or wait a bit?

    I think it'd be an awesome oppurtunity for the Ohio state meet... what do you think?

    Post a poll...

    Hey guys, I haven't forgotten about this poll. I've contacted Mid-Ohio to see if the USTCC events April 2-4 and August 20-22 are open to the public. I've also contacted current USTCC champion, Subaru driver, and clubWRX.net member Gary Sheehan to see if he will be attending the USTCC events at Mid-Ohio. If so, maybe we can attend and get a behind the scenes view of professional Subaru racing.

    Once I hear back, I'll put together a poll. Maybe we can have two big M-O events, although I know several of us attend the whole season.

    Hey, that's me! Yes, Smorris and I were the only ones. I still have to get my pass. Have until Feb 20. Probably won't go to the FnF festival, but I'll be there for everything else.

    I heard back from Mid-Ohio and from Gary Sheehan.

    The second USTCC (US Touring Car Championship) race at Mid-Ohio August 20-22 will be open to the public! So this might be another one to look at for our plans.

    Gary said they are still putting together the plans for Team SMR and the WRX for this year's USTCC season. Once he has it all scheduled, he will post a PR. It would be great to see Gary and the WRX at mid-Ohio!

    Stay tuned!
