DXDT Racing Secures Historic Win, Shows Quality Competition in Heated VIR Weekend

7 June 2021 TCAM

ALTON, Va. - DXDT Racing persevered through high temperatures in a challenging race weekend at VIRginia International Raceway, competing in three doubleheaders across the Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by aws, GT America powered by aws, and TC America powered by Skip Barber Racing School. Despite the sweltering conditions, the team delt with the highs and lows as only a professional race team can: through teamwork, consistency, and perseverance, each of the six DXDT Racing cars put in a commanding performance, bringing in a total of six top-five finishes, two podiums, and one historic win.

Following two race events in cold or wet temperatures, VIRginia International Raceway gave Kevin Boehm and the No. 9 Honda Civic a curveball for the weekend. Boehm knew the heat would make for a challenging race for the Civic, which seemed to be struggling with the 90-degree temperatures. He bided his time in race one of TC America, starting fifth in class. He dropped to seventh and was in the process of settling in and working his way up when a large crash brought an early race red flag, concluding the event sooner than planned. Race two was also interrupted by a lengthy caution and another red flag, but Kevin was able to gain two overall positions over the course of the race, earning a fifth-place finish in the TC class, marking his fifth top-five of the season.
Rounds seven and eight of the TC America championship will take place August 17-20 at yet another fan-favorite road course, Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

This weekend definitely didn’t go as planned but I love a challenge because it forces me to get better. We have just over two months before TC America Road America in August, so time to double down, fix whatever issue is plaguing the car, and show up strong.

Thanks to my sponsors and partners, especially CrowdStrike Racing, AWS, and DXDT Racing for the continued support. It was also nice to have family and friends visiting at the track this weekend.
