WAKTINS GLEN, N.Y. - Eric Powell and Carter Fartuch continued their winning ways this weekend at Watkins Glen International Raceway, as Honda drivers continued to dominate victory circle in the TC America Presented by Skip Barber Racing School season.
In the TC category, Powell increased his championship points lead – and was ably backed up by Kevin Boehm – as the pair finished 1-2 with their Honda Civic Type R’s in both Saturday and Sunday’s races in upstate New York. Powell continues to lead the TC Drivers’ Championship standings after eight of 14 races, with 126.5 points. Boehm is ranked second with 105.
In TCA, Carter Fartuch posted his third consecutive victory of the season in Saturday’s race in his Skip Barber Racing School Honda Civic Si, but was an unfortunate DNF in Sunday’s contest. After eight races, he holds down second in the TCA Drivers’ Championship, just 8.5 points behind leader Caleb Bacon.
