    "only into something"

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "and only into something" in this context:
    {no one really made up much ground on me except for Parko. Itís definitely nice to be sitting in that position at this point with a couple of wins and only into the fourth event now.}

    That was said by a surfer, He was talking about the fact that the wildcards made the final.

    I can't get "and only into the fourth event." The structure is so vague for me.

    Thanks a lot.

    In that context, "the beginning of" or "within".
