The two car team of DNN Motorsports will become a three car team for 2018. The guys are building a new 1993 Acura Integra to add to the fleet utilizing all of the things they have learned after two championships in NASA’s Honda Challenge series. The schedule for 2018 is as follows:
March 10-11: Willow Springs Raceway, Rosamond, CA
April 21-22: Buttonwillow Raceway, Buttonwillow, CA
June 23-24: Buttonwillow Raceway, Buttonwillow, CA
September 14-16: Circuit of the Americas, Austin, TX (NASA National Championships)
This video shows some great close racing action in Honda Challenge and some insane late braking by DNN Motorsports drivers (thank you Carbotech). We will be coming back in 2018 with a third car for the team all in preparation to head to the Circuit of the Americas in Texas to defend our Honda Challenge title.
The team pulled it off and came back to the championships to repeat their domination of Honda Challenge 4, with Rob Krider and Keith Kramer at the top two spots of the podium. Time for champagne! 2016 and 2017 Honda Challenge Champions! Check out the NASA press release HERE.
