WCEC Season Opener - West bend

Recommended Posts

I went once, for my first time, Last year?

It was a waste of time for me personally IMO. There was a "cruise" into the meet in the morning From Madison to the event and it should have been a tell tail sign I was going to see modified Chevy Cruze's the whole day, but I still ventured on.

There was a building that had about 10-20 cars that were worth looking at (most I have already seen before or knew the owners) and the outdoor area was mostly locals with stock or crudely modified cars. Honestly I think the event is catered to a younger crowd (14-19 yrs of age) which is perfectly fine to me, but note that the cars that show up are also owned buy that crowd as well.

I didn't go last year, it's about a mile from my house, but I remember the huge traffic.

Since it's so close I decided to enter 3 vehicles for the indoor showcase.  Supposedly they choose 100.  All 3 got accepted, so....indoor showcase I go to see what it's all about.  I will definitely be the old guy there, but at least i wont have to jockey for parking.

Opener in April? They do know this is Wisconsin, right? 

Yes.....last year was real early too.  Most of the pics still showed piles of snow around.

makes sense - i'd bet snow is 50/50 in the 2nd week in april.  regardless, I'd rather beat myself with a stick than go.

But you could meet that Alex kid whos super cool now, hes in internet videos!  Hes not even a huge dork at all!  Also I don't hate his face!

99% of the cars there are glorified winter beaters so it doesnt matter if they see snow or not.

That's what 2 of my 3 are.  Just hope the salt is off the road!
