Congratulations to Takata Racing and Zoom Zoom Kaboom for their victories this weekend.  Willow Springs in June can be a harsh environment, so all teams are to be commended for coming out and enduring the heat. It was awesome to see lots of new faces. 


Not a great weekend for Uncommon Friends Racing.  A broken cast iron (factory) alternator mount spoiled our chances Saturday, and the subsequent damage to our battery ended our chances on Sunday.  Can't wait for Auto Club in November....wish there were some closer races we could travel to in the meantime!

Covid Crew #19 race recap: Firstly, hats off to all the class and overall winners of the race.   We fought hard Saturday and ended up 2nd in class and 5 th overall.   Our #19 mustang ran great.  
Sunday was a much different result.... About two hours into the race and for reasons still unclear to us, our driver spun in the exit of turn 2.  Into the dirt and flipped once landing on its left side.  Cause for a red flag . Driver radios in and said  “I’m upside down but I’m ok”.  Big thanks to fire and safety for responding quickly and uprighting us.  Miraculously we drove it into the pits.   After lots of duct tape, two tires, a quart of oil and a re-tech of the car by Champ car staff.  We were back out racing in about an hour and finished the day taking the checkered.  It was great seeing all the support from all the fellow teams who walked over to our pit and offered a hand and checked on our driver. We will be ready for Fontana!! Built ford tough !
