. Where have you been this season?
I just don't have that much interest in the local autox, because there's nothing to win. The difference in excitement between a local event and National event is beyond comparison. At National events, it REALLY counts, and you can win money/contingencies plus get recognized on the website and in the magazine. Not that I couldn't continue to improve my skill through seat time in local events, but I just don't enjoy it enough to use up my "free time" away from the family. I get very little free time due to my wife working full time, so until that changes, I have to pick and choose my race events very carefully.
The Rocky Mountain Shootout was perfect, because I already had to be in Golden all week for work, and the events were during work days, so it didn't affect my wife like a weekend would. I got to showcase the Warr Evo on both the road course and drag strip where I have the most fun. Spending all day to race for only 4 total minutes has gotten old unfortunately.
I got lots of time on track Thursday and about 30 passes at Bandi today, both of which went towards a championship which I am likely to win. I can't do enough RMSOLO events to qualify for season standings, so there's really no use.
