Racing Dreams
By Peggy Steck

I wish I had known about autocross when I was 17-18.  It would have saved me a lot of grief and speeding ticket expenses and getting my license suspended and having to go to traffic school with a bunch of truckers.  I was the only female and the only person under probably 30.  And it was held at LCC.  I lived in Springfield and I did what any head strong self-respecting teenager did then, I drove myself.  I was just more careful and did not speed. And then as long as we had good attendance, we passed and I got my license back and shortly after, I moved to Seattle.

The EESCC club was around then and there were probably autocross clubs in the Seattle area too. But the internet was not, so how was I going to find out about a club to get my need for speed met. Especially with parents who thought racing was for degenerates. The old Eugene speedway was in business then, (out west 11th) and I had friends whose families went and I was not allowed to go with them.  It was not a place for teenage girls. 

While living in the Seattle area, we would go to the circle track races in Spanaway.  Back then it was a dirt track if my memory is correct.  They also had destruction derby in the center of the track every race event.  That was my favorite.  You could also buy the lowest level of race cars for $300.  You just went down to the pit and bought it out from the owner.  Then it was your responsibility until it got bought from you.  I wanted one so badly.  I had $300 saved up in tips, but we lived in an apartment, had no garage or tools, etc.  And had a Honda civic.  Couldn’t even tow it.  That was a bust.  I could just imagine the fun I could have had with a beater race car!!!

Once we splurged and bought tickets to the drag races at Seattle international raceway.  It was all the big names we had watched on TV.  That was so awesome.  You could feel the heat pass by when the Jet engine cars went down the track and the noise, blew your ear drums out. 

Fast forward almost 20 years, I bought a Camaro, found auto cross, met Tim and the rest is blissful history. And parts and more parts and more cars.  And expense and more expense.  And fun and more fun!
