    So after starting off the year undefeated in Novice class in both Raw and PAX times, I stepped up to A-Street for 1 event since my "Rookie Class" didn't start until the next event. Stepping into A-Street was certainly a learning experience and although I had a bad day, I wasn't going to do much better than 3rd even with a few extra runs. At that particular event I was out Raw timed by a 2015 GTI in G-Street so his PAX was MILES faster than mine. He is one of my main competitors in Rookie Class now, so coming into our 2 day event this past weekend I felt like even my best performance was going to fall short of his PAX. So on Saturday after a final run downed cone in my path, I was granted a re-run and I pulled off a 1.5 second improvement over my fastest run! That jumped my PAX time to a full second ahead of the GTI when I had been trailing him all day! That sent me into Sunday with a comfortable lead, but I still felt like I pulled off something that I may not be able to duplicate and assumed he had a bad day. After some good tips from a very fast driver in a C7 Grand Sport. I laid down my best time of the day on my second run and I wasn't able to improve it for the last 2 runs. All in all it was a great time and I brought home the win and I was very pleased with my overall PAX for a guy who only started autoXing 5 month ago!

    Below are the results, but for reference this GTI ran a 57.790 and I ran a 58.641 at the previous event. Granted I improved to a 57.010 during fun runs but that still wouldn't have beaten his PAX, so I would have lost to him if we had started Rookie class then.

    BTW I will update this thread with my PDR footage when I have time to upload it.
