New year - new update.

So the last few months of 2018 were a blur, with a last minute decision to haul up to Road America and fight for the Optima GTV season points.

Traveling to this huge, historic track helped motivate us to try an idea that had been floating around for a bit on the spoiler.

New in front, old underneath

Better looks (in our minds at least), 4 positions of adjustability, and less drag

Final painted and in position

Also took the opportunity to update the front end. Light is good

Alignment and corner weights checked, ready for battle

We passed through the parking lot at Road America on Power Tour in 2004. I told myself then someday we would go back to run it, having never even done an autocross. It was surreal to pull in the gate knowing we were there to race.

Cold. Surreal and cold..

Mixing it up with these two spectacular cars, incredible drivers, and all-around cool people was a highlight of the year for sure

We had a big group of familiar faces, and took in the local sights at night..

The autocross was tight and slick. We were in a great spot after the morning, but fell down the order in the afternoon

RA is F - A - S - T and beautiful in the fall

Yeah, real fast.

In the end, we finished third in class, but bettered our score from Barber earlier in the year and locked up the GTV points championship. Still hard to believe..

Once we made it home from Road America, it set in that in mere weeks it would be time to turn around and haul to Las Vegas for the Invitational.

War paint: Activate

To be continued..

Congrats Duston on the points championship. I live only 30 minutes north of Road America so seeing your post makes me more excited to finally get my car on the track.

I always enjoy getting to run with you. I can't wait to see how well you run this year. Keep the Disco Camaro on top of the charts.
