. Tucked neatly inside the oval was the car show field and the autocross track. Gateway provided shuttles to take participants back and forth from the oval to the strip/midway/swap meet/pit area. The autocross layout was more like a small road course, and allowed for some decent speeds. Winner of the Novice class was Eric Earney in his '67 Camaro. Last year Eric was running the car on the dragstrip, but we think he was having more fun this year dodging the cones.
