SpeedMerchant Sweeps All Pan Car Classes at the 2014 R.O.A.R. Asphalt Nats

1 post in this topic


SpeedMerchant drivers' Josh Cyrul & Steven Boice had a tremendous weekend, sweeping the pan car classes at this year's R.O.A.R. Asphalt Nationals held down at a very hot & steamy Full Throttle Raceway in Kissimmee Florida.

Josh & Steve were debuting the first production Rev.8 Pros and World GT4's, and the Asphalt Nats seemed like a nice place to start. Josh just received his cars the week before the race, and Steve's car was sent directly to the track where he finished building it during Thursday's practice.

With track surface temperatures of 160+ degrees, and temperatures under the pitting tent reaching a staggering 115 degrees, it would be a long hot weekend.

Even with the extreme heat, Josh & Steve's cars handled great, and they immediately set the pace for the rest of the field during practice.

After Friday's qualifying was over, both drivers held TQ in their classes by taking every round of qualifying. Josh in 12th Scale Modified and World GT, Steve in 12th scale 13.5.

Saturday was more of the same. Under the blazing sun Josh and Steve again were at the top of the charts all day long. When qualifying was over they had both secured TQ in their classes with time to spare.

Sunday would feature R.O.A.R.'s Triple A-Main format. With the driver's best two finishes counting towards their overall A-Main result. Luckily, they would each only have to run the first 2 of the 3 A-Mains. They both comfortably started from their TQ positions and drove away from the fields onto victories in each of their individual classes. After the 2nd A-Mains were finished, they were already R.O.A.R. National Champions.

Congratulations Guys, and thank you for the hard work!

As always, thank you to all of the sponsors that support Josh, Steve and SpeedMerchant...
