In summer months, Fresno SCCA autocrossers expect triple-digit heat to put up as much of a challenge as their fellow competitors. The weekend of June 2 and 3 was searing, but it was an out-of-towner who scorched the competition at the Fresno Fairgrounds.
If Tony Rodriguez was in town to show Fresno how it’s done, consider it mission accomplished. Not only did he take top time and top PAX honors both days in his STX FRS, he also stepped in to chair two terrific events. Courses were fast and efficient both days and well-run events wrapped up early enough to avoid the blistering afternoon sun.
Saturday’s event 6 kicked off the weekend of hot autocross action in the Central Valley. Expected heat in the upper 90s didn’t keep the competition away as 61 drivers took times on a quick course.
