Kansas City Region SCCA Event #7

Kansas City Region SCCA event #7 was once again back at the Metropolitan Community College Precision Driving Center. An amusement park full of rides was put together for

what turned out to be another eventful, fun filled day of autocross. The course featured a carousel, a long roller coaster slalom on the back strait, a few high speed chutes and a tilt-a-whirl section into the finish.

You could say that event chair Rodney Giebel and course designers Adam Shames and Joe Tasler had a little bit of fun dreaming up this course! With weather cooperating and 94 competitors coming out to the park there was a lot of fun to be had by everyone.

As the day came to a close top PAX was grabbed by Jared Langenfeld for the second event in a row. Posting a PAX time of 40.631 and also fastest raw time of the day with a 42.546.

Second place PAX was Craig Wilcox in his 2008 Audi TT which donned a new set of shiny red wheels with a raw time of  49.387. And rounding out the top 3 in PAX was Jake Diehl in his Evo with a raw time of 48.468.
