Johan Schwartz: Recap of a Successful Weekend

28 April 2019 TC America

The Rooster Hall Racing crew did a fantastic job all weekend setting up the WVU #80 at VIR and we brought home double Wins.  

Race 1 on Saturday.  Had a great start from pole positioning and I was able to hold this position for the duration of the race.  Also had a great restart after the first full course yellow, and stayed in the lead until the next full course yellow.  Unfortunately, for the spectators, the did not have the opportunity to see us go back to green racing and I took the checkered flag under the full course yellow.    

Sunday's Race 2 found us starting P3 and I knew I would need a clean start.  Lap 1, turn one, I was in good position and was able to avoid the spin in front of me and take the lead.  For the majority of the race I settled in, focused on managing my tires and keeping a gap of around 2 seconds between myself and second place runner Chandler Hull.  Around the twenty minute mark, my tire management was paying off, the car still had room to push more and I widened the gap to 3+ seconds and held this for the remainder of the race.
