The team dedicated their enduro victory to crew member and sponsor Darrel Price (J & B Farms) who is battling heart failure and cancer. The team signed the first place trophy and delivered it to Darrel in the hospital on Monday after the race.

The Uber To The Pits Podcast usually has big name professional racing driver guests like Tommy Kendall, Lyn St. James, and Willy T. Ribbs. But, for some unknown reason they decided to lower their standards and interview DNN Motorsports racing driver Rob Krider. On the show Rob talked about how he started in racing, his Honda Challenge National Championships, the team’s documentary film Double Down, Tactical Ops Brewing’s delicious Double Nickel Nine IPA, and his novel Cadet Blues. And, of course, their was plenty of time to tell a few funny stories about the insane antics of the team’s volunteer pit crew. You can enjoy the show on Spotify, iTunes, or where ever you listen to podcasts or check out the YouTube video below.
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!
The team headed to Auto Club Speedway and took on the NASCAR banking during Rounds 5 & 6 of the NASA Honda Challenge series. Big thanks to the guys at Performance In-Frame Tuning and TEM Machine Shop for getting the team some much needed horsepower.
