Background

I started autocrossing in 2007 when my college roommate coaxed me to attend my first event in my 1995 Acura Integra. In 2009 I bought a 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution and began slowly building it into what it is today. I started in the A-Stock class, moved to STU, then to Street Modified, which is fairly unlimited. Through the years I have focused on attending as many local events as I can, and in 2012 I attended my first national level events. For 2013, I have already attended two events at the national level, and plan to attend many more, with the ultimate goal being the national championships in Lincoln, NE. I hope to gain the support of GoPro to aid in my datalogging and data analysis efforts in an attempt to further develop the car and build it into a national championship winning machine.

Highlights

In 2010, my first serious year of autocross, I won the STX championship in the Norcal UFO AutoX series, and took 2nd place at the 2010 SFR SCCA Divisional in BSP. In 2011, I took 2nd place in Street Modified for the championship season, and 1st place in Street Modified for the "Slush" season in SFR SCCA. In 2012, the car had limited outings due to drivetrain issues, but took 3rd and 4th place in Street Modified at the 2012 SCCA El Toro ProSolo. So far in 2013, the car has placed 5th and 8th in Street Modified at the SCCA San Diego National Tour, and 1st and 3rd in Super Street Modified at the SCCA El Toro ProSolo.

Goals

Goals for this year include attending enough SCCA ProSolo events to qualify for the ProSolo Finale in Lincoln, NE and attending SCCA Solo Nationals, also in Lincoln, NE. This year will be a development year, and I have hopes of the car, and myself, getting faster and faster. I hope to bring on more sponsors to support this effort and hope that my continued success can bring mutual benefit.
