It's Talladega Race weekend this weekend. Does commuting to work through this traffic count? I'm dodging drunks, drunks in motorhomes, city, county, and state police.

autocrossing a ranger? i have no idea what that means. like a cannonball run? if yes, then it's not a new motorsport.

autocross is a course layed out in an empty parking lot, and the object is to get thru the course the fastest without hitting any cones, and going thru every gate

i've dabbled a little in auto X, and its a rush

Seems only way to do it would to have a lowered ranger so you don't have the body roll.
