|Mooresville, NC – After the dust settled on the Ohio Muscle Car Challenge hosted by Orange Cone Racing it was two DSE Equipped cars taking home the top spots in the challenge. Billy Utley, driving his DSE Equipped Nova won the event with Detroit Speed's own Stacy Tucker finishing closely behind him in her 1969 Camaro Test Car for a 2nd place finish.
This was a unique event as there were three very large autocross courses that were setup. There was a different setup Saturday morning which changed Saturday afternoon and then a new setup for Sunday morning. The participants best times were accumulated from each course and then added together for final scoring. Billy and Stacy were going back and forth all weekend with Billy winning the autocrosses on Saturday (with Stacy right behind in 2nd) and then Stacy winning on Sunday with Billy right behind her. After all was said and done it was Billy who held off a hard fought Sunday charge from Stacy and was crowned the winner.
This was a really exciting event and the fact that there were three different courses kept everything fresh. We loved seeing all of our friends and competitors sporting the DSE Equipped decals on their rides. From Bob Bertlesen to Mike Reckley, The Farrington's, Ray Thompson and Rich Gregory this was a terrific showing for Detroit Speed Equipped vehicles.
We would like to thank NORA for setting up the courses and for tracking all of the times throughout the weekend. Thanks also to Lil' Jon for hosting the Saturday evening barbeque and a special thanks to Bob Bertelsen for hosting such a fantastic event! We'll be sure to see you next year
