Detroit Speed, Inc. – Race Report–One Lap of America

Detroit Speed, Inc. – Race Report

• Kyle and Ryan overcame some early morning adversity to take  1st in class and 15th overall in the afternoon session at Daytona
• The team moves on to their “home” track at Carolina Motorsports Park for some road course action

Mooresville, NC – Kyle and Ryan unfortunately lost the rear main seal yesterday morning but were able to get it replaced it time for the afternoon session and were back out on the track. The guys were able to take 1st place in their class and 15th overall for the session. What an amazing recovery. They had been gaining ground on 1st place in their class however the morning session setback currently leaves them 40 points behind 1st place in their class. This will just make for a more interesting finish for the SSGT2 Big Bore class at One Lap of America.

On their way out of Daytona the crew took a minute to talk with Grassroots Motorsports Magazine, they supplied Kyle and Ryan with pure southern hospitality as they left Daytona. The guys made their way up to CMP last night and are still having some issues with 4th gear. Coming back to the home track should be a big spirit lift and hopefully the guys can bring home a couple 1st place class finishes and get them right back in the hunt for 1st in class. Thanks again to Stacy’s parents Ron and Claudia and their friend Craig who came through for the guys with some help and best of all some homemade brownies.

Event Status:
Kyle, Ryan and the DSE White Monster Camaro currently sit in 2nd place in their class and with the morning session issues dropped back to 19th overall. With some good runs at CMP the guys can start cutting into that deficit for 1st in the SSGT2 Big Bore class.
