Conti Challenge Race at Watkins Glen

Congrats to HART for the 4th place finish in ST class and to Euro Motorworks Racing for the solid finish on the lead lap in Saturday's Continental Tire 150 at Watkins Glen. I helped Euro Motorworks Racing team owner Terry Heath calculate race and fuel strategy for Watkins Glen which helped the team stay on the lead lap and come home in a respectable 14th position out of 36 GS class entries and 76 total entries. The weekend started off hectic for EM Racing as a cooling system problem caused them to miss most of the first practice. After replacing the water pump and thermostat, they were problem-free for the rest of the weekend. Kasey Kuhlman qualified the car in 21st position in his first outing with the team and he and Terry moved the car up seven positions during the 2.5 hour race. The team improved upon their 2009 Watkins Glen performance by being faster throughout the weekend and closer to the fastest race lap set by the # 41 TRG Porsche.

Terry and Euro Motorworks Racing will be back in action in two weeks at Mid-Ohio. You can catch the Watkins Glen Conti Challenge race on Speed TV this Saturday 6/13 at 1PM ET.
