    Default Interested in trying some auto X.. Locations?

    Like I said I am interested in playing around with some auto-cross this spring/summer, is there any locations in northern WV. I'm located in the Fairmont area. I've heard people talk about some that went on in Grafton last year but cant seem to find any good info about it.

    Btw its been a long time since I've on here
    My ride is a 14 mustang GT with the track pack, RTR wheels with 275/35r19 all the way around, and hopefully a full suspension this summer

    Thanks for the link, I've looked into them already and will more than likely try to make an event. I was just curious if there was something in the northern WV/S. PA area I was missing.

    The Corvette Club has hosted them at the high school in Fairmont the past. There have also been small ones in Morgantown. I've not heard about any at this point though.

    The FAA ruined the best autox in the state...the Airport autox outside Parkersburg with their BS....Even the ones at Yeager weren't bad compared to the small venues around here.

    they used to have a good autocross in elkins, one in parkersburg.. both of those got killed.

    The corvette club autocross is near the harry green show usually.... I SHOULD hear about it now since I'm a member of the Kanawha Valley Corvette Club. and one of the members there is the Regional autocross coordinator. They are also doing one at the Longerberger baskets field office.

    Also, SWVRSCCA is going to start in January this year.

    I used to auto-x at Cumberland, MD airport but that was a year or two ago.

    North Hills in Pittsburgh also has events and we would go up with 4-5 cars

    Yes the Cumberland Airport Autocross series is no more. National Road Autosport is looking for another site in the Cumberland area. When I find out any more info on that I will post it here.
