Professional Indy car driver and driver coach extraordinaire, Ross Bentley, was gracious enough to have DNN Motorsports driver Rob Krider on the Speed Secrets Podcast (Episode 155). During the episode the two discuss each of their own car fire experiences and Rob touches on one of the things that has made DNN Motorsports National Champions: The Motorsports Triangle.
It is a great episode with lots of tips and tricks for amateur racing teams. Check out the episode HERE.
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!
Annually the December issue of SpeedNews magazine always features the best of their coverage during the year.

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.
Rob Krider has a new column at GearHeads4Life.com appropriately titled “Right Foot.” The first installment follows Rob Krider and Keith Kramer as they battled with their Nissan Z cars in the Optima Search for the Ultimate Street Car challenge at Thunderhill. Check out the full story HERE. The television episode should air in the fall of 2016.
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!
Check out the post race write-up at The Napa Valley Register.

Next event will be Rounds 5 & 6 at California Speedway in Fontana, CA.
