On June  25, four of our members ran in the Akron Sports Car Club autocross at Dragway 42 in West Salem, OH.   Bob Palmer, Rich Velardo and Tom Walden ran their Miatas and Nich Bugosh ran his Porsche.  Cheering them on were fellow members Daryl Baker, Dave Baker, Bob Maurer and Mike Kerklo (and his grandson Colin who got a few ride-alongs with Rich and Tom).  The track was challenging and the weather was a great.  In total there were 133 participants, including a total of 14 Miata’s in various classes.  Rich placed 2nd in his class (with the best time of the members’ Miatas), with Bob and Tom 3rd in their respective classes and Nick 4th in his class.  Thanks to Rich for organizing the group and Bob Maurer for drafting the  write-up.  Note photos from ASCC used with permission.
