The Kettle Moraine Divisional race weekend was Jenkins Racing’s first trip to the legendary Road America racetrack in Wisconsin. During the six week summer break the car was handed over to Advanced Autosport for a new suspension setup so the car was ready for more testing. We also enlisted crew help from a Bühler Apprentice who was ecstatic to be on pit lane for the race weekend.
There was no practice session so qualifying was the first time on the race track. Road America is notoriously difficult to learn because it is over 4 miles long. Number 21 qualified in the middle of a 23 car field. The race was clean and the focus was to learn the track. We finished the race with no incidents mid-pack.
Sunday was more about learning the track, testing the new suspension setup, and collection data with the Bühler BCube and on board data logger. Our Bühler Apprentice was a great help with collection tire pressure data through out each stint. The race was again from mid pack and there was a back and forth battle with the number 78 car. Overall a great weekend of racing for the Bühler Jenkins Racing team.
