Round II: NMCA West Auto-XPosted By: JDP Team - On: 4/18/2018 6:00 AM
Round II NMCA West Autocross Hotchkis Cup 2018 | Fontana, CA
Last weekend, the JDP Team traveled to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana for Round 2 of the NMCA West Auto-X Hotchkis Series! Racing took place on Saturday and Sunday with a total of 19 runs. At the Round I event in February, we finished in first place with a fastest time of the day award. This year, JDP is a proud sponsor of the NMCA West Hotchkis series.
We had an excellent day Saturday fighting in the top three spots with Austin Barnes (2010 Dodge Viper) and Jake Rozelle (2003 Chevrolet Corvette). We were able to finish 2nd overall in time and average, just 2 tenths behind Barnes with Rozelle coming in a close 3rd.
Sunday started off well, but we didn’t have the same speed we had Saturday. We lost ground early to Barnes and Rozelle, and we knew we needed to make a change. Before the last session we went to a different tire and picked up a substantial amount of time. We finished within 2 tenths of Barnes in the last session. Sadly, the change wasn't soon enough for us to secure first place.
We ended up finishing in 2nd Place overall 3 tenths behind Barnes for the average for both Saturday and Sunday. Rozelle finished in a close 3rd in his awesome C5 Corvette! We had a solid weekend and we’ll keep chipping away and making the car and driver better. Stay tuned!
