No barriers crushed and only rubber left on the tarmac means it was a great weekend! Midwest Musclecar Challenge presented by Bowler Performance Transmission and Royal Purple, was the event. Putnam Park Road Course on Friday, and Terre Haute International Airport on Saturday were the venues. The weather was actually rather nice all weekend with only a small shower around midday both days causing short delays. The RideTech 48 Hour Corvette, 69 Mustang, and 48 Hour Camaro were all on track with a great group of other RideTech Nation members.
The road course action was great on Friday with the competitors being grouped into three run groups according to talent / experience. Chris Smith was able to lay down the vintage class’s fastest lap time while running the 48 Hour Corvette in the Advanced run group. The 48 Hour Camaro, driven by Todd Green and Jim McKamey finished 1st and 2nd with the two fastest lap times in the Intermediate run group. 3rd place in the same run group was Jeremiah Stotler, in his RideTech prepped 2015 Mustang.
Saturday’s Autocross action took place on a tire hungry concrete pad at the airport in Terre Haute, Indiana. The runs were fast and the competition was close all day long. After lunch the top 10 times across the entire field were brought in for a Shootout. Jeremiah Stotler, Chris Smith, and Jim McKamey were included in the first round with Chris and Jeremiah moving on to the top 5. Each competitor would get three runs and the lowest compiled total time would determine the winner. Billy Utley came home with the Shootout win with Jeremiah finishing 2nd place and Chris in 4th.
