USCA_COTA2016_640COTA Recap and Results!

In this episode of the podcast we decided to put together a full recap of the recent event at COTA. This event proved to be huge in number of participants, exciting track action, and had an incredible cool-factor due to the the almost Disneyland-like attention to detail that the COTA facility provides.

As most people know by now there was also an incredible exhibition of safe driving put on by Ken Thwaits, Ronnie Solloman, Jake Rozelle, Doug Wind, and James Forbis as well. Listen to the show for full details….as well as the “light-saber to the engine block” discussion of Ken’s Evo!

Also, for those of you that have been keeping track, due to back to back events we weren’t able to get out a Charlotte recap podcast show prior to this one…but not to worry – that show is coming out asap as well (this week)!

Thanks for listening!

-Rob & Jimi
