AROC 9/13/09 Champ Autocross Results

Here are the results from AROC's September 13 Champ event at Oakland U.

Thanks to all of you who came out and supported our club this year- I know it was a brief year as we continue to try to get new lots. But next year we will try to have a few more events for you to enjoy.

AND, one more thing.

Thanks to generous drivers much like yourself, we raised $254 (!) for the Melanoma Research Foundation in Nate Trask's honor. Thank you so much for your thoughts. We won't be the only ones missing him, for sure.

AROC 9/13, Champ #9 at Oakland University

On Sunday, September 13, AROC will be hosting Champ Autocross #9 at Oakland University. It's Lot #1, which runs parallell with Squirrel Rd.

Tech and registration will open at 10am
We should have a drivers meeting at 10:30 or so- and tech and registration will close during this so that our volunteers can walk the course, too.

First car out will be roughtly 11am.

Weather permitting, we will be doing fun runs, which will be free to all workers, and $2/run for all who do not work. On that note, if you don't have any intention to work, PLEASE do NOT sign up for a worker station. We want to make sure we have workers who will show up when called, not sign up out of guilt- that's not our intention.

Costs- AROC- $20
DCSCC- $25
All others $30.

This event will be dedicated to our fallen member, Nate Trask, and we will have a collection box where we will donate all of the funds to the Melanoma Research Foundation, as the Trask family would like us to do. Please help us celebrate the life of our friend and fellow racer.

Our Condolences to the Trask Family

AROC Detroit member Nate Trask lost his battle to cancer on August 30, 2009. Nate joined our club through our motorsports activities, through many of our members who also work for Ford. He was very active at all of our autocross events, to the point of joining the board of the Detroit Council of Sports Car Clubs, being the points keeper after he came up with a few unique ways to tally points between the various classes.

While we could never find an Alfa that fit Nate's tall frame, the driving we saw in his Miata was very impressive. Nate was one of the better drivers in not only AROC, but the entire DCSCC. Although watching him drive will be missed, we will miss his presence, his hard work, and his constant smile far more.

AROC Detroit and the DCSCC extends its deepest sympathies to his wife Deb, and his two children, Morgan and Landon.
