“I never sell in a workshop. Never. I educate. Even if I love a product, I don’t sell anyone. That’s just not my style. No one sells or “pitches” any products in my workshops. If you attend my workshop, you will walk away with valuable, powerful information you understand to help make your car handle better & more fun to drive. I guarantee it.” – Ron Sutton

NCM Results and 2015 Points Standings!


Think you can’t autocross well in a classic muscle car? Think again!

In this episode we had a chance to give an update on results from the recent event at NCM (see below) and also dig into the current Overall Points Standings.

Long story short – the Double Points events could be a HUGE player in who receives the Points Available invites to OUSCI.  We can already see by looking at the current points standings (and future registrations) who is planning to make a run….and the competition is going to get tight. Remember, your combined score of your best three events is what your overall points total is tabulated from, meaning a Double Points is a huge advantage!

NCM Awarded Positions (click HERE for full event results):

GT – Ryan Matthews 2010 Camaro
GTS – Clay Shearer 2015 Porsche 911 Turbo S
GTL – Danny Popp 2003 Corvette Z06
GTV – Brian Finch – ‘71 Camaro
Spirit of the Event – Mike Gallagher 2009 Caddy CTS-V
1st Timer – Clay Shearer 2015 Porsche 911 Turbo S

Thanks much!
