Mihld Wins Big in Spec E30 at Chuckwalla Season Opener

Saturday’s qualifying session at the combined SoCal and Arizona regional event at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway put the veteran Mihld on pole, continuing where he left off in his 2017 SoCal Spec E30 championship season. Andrew Clark turned in a lap time fast enough to put him outside pole, just 2.3 seconds back. Qualifying in third with a new car, Ed Wagner was only .3 seconds behind Clark for the third spot on the grid.
By the end of the race Saturday, Mihld had established a 5-second lead and maintained that on second place. Wagner wiggled past Clark early in the race and defended Clark all race long. Clark finished third, with Wagner and Mihld ahead of him.
For Sunday’s race, Mihld squirted away from the field, with Clark just behind. Team Black Swan Research was leading a pack in third, with Wagner glued to his bumper and Team Ed Sukchai, with Sukchai

Pond Dominates Willow Springs Opener

Fresh off a win at Chuckwalla in February, Ryan Pond started Saturday’s race from third only to lose two spots in Turn 1. He got one back in Turn 3 when he repassed Hannah Grisham, who had started behind him. Pond and Rob Burgoon got a little too close early on in the fast Turn 8 and Pond dropped two wheels and fell back. He was back on Burgoon’s bumper at the exit of Turn 9 the next lap and around him the next time into Turn 2. After that, Pond was gone and took a convincing win. Jeremy Barnes finished second, with Burgoon in third.
For Sunday morning’s inverted qualifying race, Sean Douglass started from pole, with Grisham in second because her car broke in Saturday’s main. Marc Minasian started from third. Grisham ran away with it, earning pole position for the main race, followed by Burgoon in second Ken

WERC Series Goes Flag to Flag Under Green at Willow Springs Opener

The Western Endurance Racing Championship series kicked off the 2018 season with a 28-car field that went flag to flag with no caution periods at a dark and speedy Willow Springs International Raceway. To set the grid, drivers drew numbers from a hat, which meant some of fast cars started from the rear.

One of those cars was Team PMG Awareness. The changes the team made to the car throughout the day made the difference, and driver Tom Haacker clawed his way from the back to take the lead and the ES and overall win.
“This year I did not have a co-driver, so I drove the whole three hours,” Haacker said. “We worked on the car this morning during the test sessions. The boys figured a few things out and got it dialed in, and got it set up to be able handle what we were doing today, so I applaud
