The editors at SpeedNews magazine chose Rob Krider of DNN Motorsports to cinch the top spot in Honda Challenge 4 at this year’s NASA National Championships in September of 2018 at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, TX. Time to get to work and make sure our team doesn’t make the editors of SpeedNews a bunch of liars!

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.

An epic weekend for the DNN team, qualifying on the inside of row 2, and then battling through carnage to take the lead during lap one of Round 8 of the NASA SoCal Honda Challenge series at Buttonwillow Raceway. Tactical Ops Brewing was kind enough to bring a keg of beer to the track for all of the Honda Challenge teams. Tasty stuff!
