Default 02 Monte SS wins Autocross at 2010 Super Chevy Las vegas

Hello been a while since I posted here and just wanted to share with you all my 02 Monte SS did pretty good in an "Autocross" event at this years Super Chevy magazine event in Las Vegas.
I figured what the hell might as well see how well this front wheel drive car could do against the rear wheel drives on an Officially sanctioned SCCA autocross course at the Super Chevy event. I mean I drove the **** out of this car it was way to much fun. Drive your car as fast as you want in front of spectators,judges and against the clock. It was all about having the exhaust cutout open, windows down tunes a blasting and driving it like you stole it.
There were old and new Corvette's, Camaro's, Impala's, Malibu's and such. The seasoned professional SCCA nationally recognized champion Mary Pozzi took 1st place for experienced drivers. Mary rode with me two times to critque me on how to navigate the course and then I asked her to drive my Monte and upon completeing she told me how impressed with the cars acceleration handling and braking she was. Mary also owns a 2002 Camaro SS but was racing a sponsered TCI suspensions Camaro at this event.
With my Monte SS I took 1st place in the Novice class and there were Corvette's and 2010 Camaro SS (suspensioned sponsered also) and such and I took it from them. I chewed up and had to replace my front tires upon returning to Utah.
Super Chevy Magazine 2010 July issue and Chevy High Performance Magazine 2010 October issue had small pictures of my Monte SS and small write ups, but it was cool to even get in the magazine's. I had many people complimenting me on the car's build. Had an extra helmet and took people for rides around the course a few times. It was way to much fun!!
Anyway just thought I would let you know I represented us Monte Carlo types good and came home with a plaque. Hell yeah!!
538 WHP TURBOCHARGED and rolling with the big dogs!!
Put a few pictures on my Winning Monte SS on this sites "My Garage" page of the Super Chevy magazine coverage, let me know what you think.. Thanks all!!

The Bitch...take's no prisoners!!

Appreciate all the kind words, thats why I came here to let you all know the car did it's job. All of us to some degree or another modify our Monte's. And to take it to a challenge like this and pull off a win speaks well of our wide body set up's. We all have to be happy with how well they normally hold to the road. Yet to put it through these paces and not lose control reinforces our knowledge as to how well the wide body hugs the roads. You should have been there, I pulled no punches, build boost at the starting line and then stay on the throttle and brakes through out the whole course. At times I just knew the tires were going to roll off the rims. They were shredded and were missing several chunks about the size of a dime around the tires outside tread area. You should attend the next Super Chevy in your area, just go to their web site Super Chevy.com, the 2011 calender is already posted. I will return to Vegas again next year but this time do the 1/4 mile runs. Anyway appreciate the accolade's, I wanted this for us Monte owners, no other Monte's won in the Super Chevy autocross events in 2010 nationwide, so at least we got our foot in the door. Again the event was flippin wild, drive as fast as you dare and not lose control getting through the cones (yes I tipped a few) on some runs and they deduct 1 sec. per cone, but I just drove the living hell out of the car. Made the Bitch earn her respect from the Grand Nationals, Vette's etc. (As long as it has a GM motor in it you can run it). Well let's get er done!! Thanks again for the ego boost with your words of encouragement!!!
