Spring is almost here, so that means the annual Spokes BBQ run is around the corner! The weather should be great for some cruising on Texas hill country back roads and the wildflowers should start blooming soon. We'll meet Saturday 4/5 at 10:00am in the Sherlock's parking lot at 183 and Burnet. We'll leave promptly at 10:15am and make a brief stop at the Exxon gas station near the COTA entrance to let any of the southern Spokes contingent meet up with us. At ~10:45am we'll hit the road again and head to Blacks BBQ in Lockhart for some lunch. See the map link below for the route we plan on taking.

With the loss of San Marcos Airport (SMA) as a venue, autocross #3 has been moved to San Antonio Raceway (SAR). We are still working on alternative venues for the other 3 autocrosses later in the season that were scheduled for SMA. We will send out an update when we have more news about that.
After the resounding success of the inaugural team challenge last year, it is time to get signed up for the 2014 Team Challenge!
What is the team challenge? What are the rules? Etc!?
I urge new and seasoned participants to read over the rules because there have been some changes made since last year. The 2 most important changes are:
- Events #3 through #12 will count for the team challenge (10 events), with each team's 8 best events counting for their points (2 drops).
- We now allow substitutions; both temporary and permanent! Please read the rules to go over the restrictions and regulations for substitutions.
How to sign up?
- Your name
- Your email address
- Your phone number
Sign ups end tomorrow on March 11th. You must sign up by then to be entered in the draft for the 2014 season.

Competing at a national tour is the single greatest way to expose yourself to what a national-level autocross is like, and will propel your driver development. This event is the closest national event to Austin. And just so you know, it is not all serious competition; national level events are a giant party with fellow driving enthusiasts :)
