Kingsley Moves to Second in Overall Season Championship
McAlister Has The Pace but Mistakes Cost Him a Visit to the Podium
"Starting on the outside of Row #2 on Saturday, I stayed on the outside on the start and held my position all the way through Turn 4, gaining two positions. The race was shortened by a number of yellow flags, leaving very little opportunity to race for the lead, but I was very happy with my second place finish. Sunday's race was a lot more difficult. I got hung out at the start and was in the Top 5 when I got hit in the back resulting in a spin in Turn 3. I went to the back of the field and finished 17th. Very disappointing, but I’m looking forward to going to VIR and working our way back onto the podium."
JEREMY DALE, MANAGING PARTNER/JDX RACING: "This was one of those weekends. Sometimes you’re the bug, sometimes you’re the windshield. Jeff had a great Race #1, finishing second in his first visit to Road America. This is a very tough track to learn and Jeff proved more than capable of getting up to speed. Race #2 was more challenging, he got hit and spun out, knocking him to the back of the field, which cost important championship points. Sean had a difficult Race #1 and got bit pretty hard by Road America but bounced back nicely in Race #2 to finish fourth."
"We’re going to take the lessons learned from this weekend to Virginia International Raceway and keep fighting for the Top 3 in the championship points."
