Thanks Clark!

The October Autocross is fast approaching, 2 weeks from today, on October 14th and 15th. The name will be confirmed soon but I am guessing it will be Cone Hell-O-Ween 2017! And like many October events, its time for GRUDGE MATCHES!!!! So let the call outs and trash talking begin. Just because its getting close to Halloween, doesn't means you should be scared!

So how do grudge matches work? Let me explain...

The rules are the same as in the past:
10 Grudges each day, maximum.
$5 from each participant. This covers the cost of shirts.
.
You need to come up with a name for your grudge, or one will be made up for you.
Grudge sessions will be between heats, or at the end of the day. You'll drive each others' cars after both have driven in competition.
The fastest of the first three runs in your own car (regardless of the number of competition runs) will be used, in addition to the fastest of three runs in your competitors car. These will be totaled to determine your time. Cones and DNFs count, just like in competition.

Thanks Clark and Jedi for getting this kicked off.

The Event is Cone Hell-o-Ween 2017.


There will be Grudge Matches. Jedi described it excellently. Grudge Matches are completely optional to all competitors.

Grudge Match List

As the Grudge Master for this event, I’ll be tracking the matches and keeping score during the autocross.
Use this thread to call out your competition and get concurrence on a match.
Once you’ve got agreement I’ll update this post.
For each match I need both driver names, the day (Sat or Sun), and the Name of the Grudge Match. This last is very important. If you don’t come up with a name one will be made for you. I promise it will be nice and complimentary. Ha!
I’ll also collect $5 from each of you at the event.

So let’s get started.

Saturday Grudges
Steve vs. Brandon - Thunder Down Under vs. Coyote Cone Eater
Brian Catt vs. Dean Plumadore - cats-n-vets...sung to the tune of "bumps-n-heats" with a dance choreographed by Jeff Smucker.

Sunday Grudges
Clark Walker vs. Dean Plumadore- Hot Dogs v Brats.....sung to the tune of "The Orville"
Brian Knox vs. Jacob Kruse - need grudge name

I'll grudge you Dean. Give you chance to drive my car since I've driven yours. Let's do this as grudges seem to be apathetic. Name suggestion -- hot dogs vs. brats. You pick the day.
