August is upon us, we thought we'd recap the fun event we took part of in July.
Our biggest adventure was when Hotchkis joined forces with Baer Brakes to host an Autocross and SpeedStop Challenge at the first ever NMCA/NMRA West Coast Shootout. The event was a stunning success with over 50 participants running all weekend long.
With classes for Modern Muscle, Street Machine, Muscle Machine, Truck, Street Rod and Turn & Burn, there was a great array of cars, trucks and customs running the cones and locking up the tires on the autocross and SpeedStop courses.
One very hotly contested class was Modern Muscle, with over 20 entries. Bruce Cambern placed 1st in his '05 Ford GT. Bruce did very well in the SpeedStop Challenge as well, getting the best time overall. Hotchkis was represented in 3rd place on the Modern Muscle podium by enthusiastic H-Teamer, Rob Byrd, driving Trish Byrd's 2010 SS Camaro. Trish was there as well, in her brand new 2011 droptop, in matching blue and silver. Yes, you read that right, both cars belong to Trish, both are fully Hotchkis-equipped and don't you forget it.
