A surprising dry weekend for the BCR team of 3 Trans-Am TA2 cars at Mid-Ohio, as part of the Nascar Xfinity Series, as the weather forecast was calling for 100% chance of rain! We ended getting no rain at all during our practise/qualifying and race, much to our disappointment as we have developed some amazing rain set-ups.
We had the fortune of working with Cameron Lawrence on Mike’s #48 to further the development of that platform. We learnt a lot and made some major changes thru the weekend which allowed Mike to turn some personal best lap times and finish an excellent race in 14th position! Lot more to come from that car/driver.
Harry in the #78 struggled all weekend with pace. We tried all kinds of set up changes, yet the lap times did not improve, ending with a disappointing 16th after qualifying. The race was far better as Harry was able to maintain his pace thru-out the race and brought it home an amazing 8th!
Jordan was quick out of the gate, the #07 Millers Oil BCR Camaro having been completely rebuilt after the Brainerd crash. He was driving well and was never out of the top 10 in any session, including a top 4 in practise and a 6th place qualifying effort! We were so excited about our chances in the race as our set-ups do not go off and Jordan traditionally gets faster and faster when everyone else starts to slow down! It was not meant to be, on lap 12, a minor misplacement of the car resulted in a spin and crash, ending our excellent weekend!
Again, many thanks to the crew of BC Race Cars, our cars made every session yet again and we still maintain our 100% reliability this year. It is a testament to their professionalism and expertise in preparation and execution.
