(Photos by Wes Allison) – So we showed you a bunch of cool cars and trucks sitting still, how about a fresh load of cars and trucks hammering through the cones?! Autocross Action, baby! That’s right, like many major league events these days the 2017 Street Machine and Muscle Car Nationals had an autocross which was open to show attendees and as you will see many of them took advantage of it.
The coolest thing is that it seems people got the message that it was not about proving that you are the second coming of Emerson Fittipaldi but rather getting out there and cutting loose with your car or truck. Autocross is like drag racing in the sense that the deepest satisfaction you’ll feel is running personal best and making improvements over the course of an event.
In this first blast of photos you’ll see a ton of different equipment on the course and there’s one common denominator that you may or may not be able to see on the faces of the racers. Smiles!
