A low turnout led to 5 runs and an early end of the day for Autopilot entrants. The expected rain only dropped by for a brief visit during the last group of the day, with most competitors getting at least 3 dry runs before light showers came in.
Top time went to Kevin Dietz in the S2000 (who also took the PRO1 class win), with Bill Zerr and Dan Podhola getting close in the Subie. The most hotly contested class was ST4, with the top 3 all within about half a second of indexed time.

A total of 132 entries from 99 individuals made Dawg Dash a big success for UWFSAE. The day ran kind of long, but the weather stayed dry and competitors got 4 runs on the Sanderson Field course.
Fast time of day went to Wes Snaza in the "retired" 2008 FSAE car, with Rodney Linton not far behind in the 2015 Husky FSAE variant. Pro1 was topped by Kit Gauthier in the DS-index Subie WRX, while Pro2 went to Geoff Clark in the familiar red Evo. The indexed classes saw some tough battles, with 1st and 2nd separated by less than a point in Pro1 and ST4, and less than 2 points in ST3. Full results are here, and season points standings are here.
More great pictures are available via the UWFSAE FB page here. Be sure to look for the "Fiero" and the "WRX"
