Team StopTech Racing Update – April 28, 2014

Road Racing

Pirelli World Challenge Championships (PWC)

This is the 25th anniversary season for PWC and StopTech is the official brake system and official brake fluid of the series this year.



GTS: After a heart-breaking, race-ending, first lap crash in the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach last week, the Goldcrest Motorsports team had to scramble to rebuild the #73 RESET-MD/Motul/StopTech Porsche Cayman S of “Team StopTech’s” Jack Baldwin in time for this past weekend’s double-header at Barber Motorsports Park. Not only did the team get the car back together, but it was running better than ever with Jack taking the pole for Saturday’s race. A tangle with the Kia of Nic Jonsson dropped Baldwin back to third for the race, but Jack rebounded on Sunday with a runaway win. Andy Lee was 4th in Sunday’s race, piloting the #20 Crown Seven/Best IT Chevy Camaro. Baldwin sits third in the championship despite no points in Long Beach, with Lee in fifth.

 

TC: What was supposed to be a season-opening double-header at Barber this past weekend turned into the season opener followed by a rained out Round 2 for TC/TCA/TCB. Virtually all of the TC class cars in World Challenge run StopTech brake components or systems so it’s hard to root for any one driver. Michael DiMeo, of Toronto, ON, Shea Holbrook, of Groveland, FL, and Brian Price, of Middletown, VA took home wins in TC, TCA and TCB respectively as all three classes featured exciting, pitched battles throughout the 40-minute, 24-lap race.

World of Outlaws, STP Sprint Car Series

 

Daryn Pittman – Federated Auto Parts Raceway – 5th Place – Currently 2nd in points– uses STR-42 caliper

 

WOO Legend, Sammy Swindell held off Joey Saldana to earn his first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season on Saturday night at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55. Donny Schatz, David Gravel and “Team StopTech’s” Daryn Pittman rounded out the top five. The win gave Saldana a slim lead over Pitman in the championship standings.

Modifieds

Using StopTech STR-43 calipers, Burt Myers continued his winning ways, grabbing the top step of the podium in car #1 at the Bowman Gray Hayes Jewelers 200. Brother Jason finished third with a similar setup in car #4.





Off-Road

There was so much off-road action this week that we only have room for the highlights and a table of full “Team StopTech” results. LOORS was just down the road in Lake Elsinore and a weekend of great racing resulted in a win, six podiums and eight top-10s. TORC was in Charlotte and the young guns of Pro Light, Doug Mittag and Jerett Brooks, went 1-2 respectively in Saturday’s feature before reversing the order on Sunday. And in SCORE Class 10 buggies, Mike Lawrence took the win and Shane Scully finished 6th in Imperial Valley.
