For winning the Honda Challenge 4 race at the NASA Western States Championship the team was lucky enough to be featured in the January 2017 issue of Grassroots Motorsports Magazine. Pretty awesome.
DNN Motorsports headed out to Buttonwillow Raceway Park to test out their “A Car” freshly built just for the National Auto Sport Association Honda Challenge 4 National Championship. The car ran great and the team is looking forward to a solid showing at the nationals.
Check out the final build story on the DNN Motorsports Acura Integra in SpeedNews Magazine.

Aj Gracy at Performance In-Frame Tuning dialed in the “go fast” settings on our new Honda B18A1 engine built by Rich Olivier at TEM Machine Shop. The power is outstanding! Check out the full write up at The Register by clicking here.
Carlos Valenzuela put this video together of Round 8 at Buttonwillow of the NASA Honda Challenge 4 class showing some great shots of the Double Nickel Nine Motorsports Acura Integra battling it out on course. The blue and orange #33 Integra driven by Rob Krider uses every inch of the track (and then some). Congrats to Carlos for the win. The team will be bringing two cars with two new engines for a rematch in October during the National Auto Sport Association Western States Championships at Buttonwillow. Should be some great racing.
Team earns a pair of second places finishes during Rounds 9 and 10 at Willow Springs International Raceway. They enjoyed their new trophies (NASA beer glasses) by drinking some Double Nickel Nine IPA from Tactical Ops Brewing. So good!
