RUNOFFS AT INDIANAPOLIS
We took the two time National Champion FP Integra to the 2017 SCCA Runoffs held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in September. We finished 5th of 40 cars even though the track did not suit our car much and pretty much everything went wrong during the race with 2 full course yellows. Read all the details in the News Article above.
After tuning our car for the high banks of Daytona we spent most of the week at the RUNOFFS of SEPTEMBER 2015 re-tuning it back the way it was to make it faster on the infield turns. On the last lap of the last day of qualifying we turned in a 2:11.009 which was 1 second faster than the next closest car to take the FP pole position. On race day we started first but never lead a single lap.............until the last one, to take the win by .018 seconds. We also turned in the fastest race lap to set a new FP track record.

Our very recognizable orange Integra that ran in ITA for so many years ran at the 2016 Runoffs. It raced all summer in ITA trim as it qualified for the big race. It received its new FP engine, along with numerous other modifications and was raced in FP by Larry Gallagher. Larry was still taking off chunks of time when they threw the early checker flag to end the race. Watch out for this one in 2017.
We have finally decided to sell the 1969 Corvette Stingray Roadster that we have been restoring for the last five years. It is nearly perfect and deserves to be used more than we use it. To see all the details about the extensive restoration this car has gone through, go to www.RuckRacing.com/69Vette/69Corvette.asp. Video showing the 1969 Corvette parked.

We are very happy to thank our sponsors for their assistance this year. Although we have been approached by numerous companies we only accepted these products because we use and believe in them. Willwood Brakes, Crower Cams, Hawk Brake Pads, Competition Clutches, Red Line Oil, Mobil One Oil, Raxles half shafts, Ishihara-Johnson crank scrapers, Hasport motor mounts, and FAST Tech Limited data loggers and dash displays have great products and have been great sponsors. We especially want to thank Cory at SloMotion Hondata and ECU tuning, Hoosier Race tires, and Honda for their support without which we could be so successful.
