Millville, NJ (April 25, 2015) – ElginRacing finished first overall in the 6th Annual Devil in the Dark 12 hour endurance race at New Jersey Motorsports Park. This victory continues ElginRacing’s successful endurance racing record as Greg Obadia, David Jacobs and Todd Lamb stood on the top step of the podium after completing 418 laps in their #00 Ford Mustang BOSS 302R.

Forty teams from around the country competed on April 24-25, 2015. In Friday night’s qualifying session, Greg Obadia put the car on the pole with a lap time of 1:26.150. The green flag dropped on Saturday at 11:55 am with David Jacobs behind the wheel for ElginRacing. Jacobs, Obadia and Lamb rotated driving duties approximately every one and half hours to replenish fuel and change tires during the twelve hour race. ElginRacing finished the race with a 16-lap lead ahead of the second place highly competitive #28 Johnstone Supply BMW that was uncharacteristically hampered by a mechanical issue.

 

Back of the Pace Car

The MEATHEAD Racing crew, directed by Mike Collins, preformed lightning-quick pit stops. ElginRacing’s Car Chief Jimmy Padgett ensured that the car ran with 100 percent reliability throughout the grueling twelve hours. Francois Bru, team strategist, played a critical role in analyzing lap times and developing pit stop and pace strategies. ElginRacing’s preparation and offseason development were key to winning the race as some of our toughest competitors.

 

“Our win today is a tribute to the hard work of the SCCA volunteers and the professionalism exhibited by each of our competitors, making The Devil in the Dark a great event,” said Ben Jacobs of ElginRacing. “On any other day we might not be so lucky.”

 

Finish LineElginRacing’s BOSS 302R made its endurance debut one year ago winning the SCCA’s2014 Devil in the Dark 12-hour race. The driving team of Jacobs, Obadia and Lamb also took the overall win of the Charge of the Headlight Brigade 13-hour Enduro race in October 25, 2014 at VIRginia International Raceway. The ElginRacing-prepared Ford Mustang BOSS 302R platform has proven itself by winning all three of the endurance races ElginRacing has entered. ElginRacing would like to recognize CorteX Racing for their support.

NATE STACY TO RUN IN GTS WITH REHAGEN RACING AT BARBER MOTORSPORTS PARK

NATE STACY TO RUN IN GTS WITH REHAGEN RACING AT BARBER MOTORSPORTS PARK

Spring 2014 – Barber Motorsports Park – Dean Martin, driver of the #50 Rehagen Racing Mustang Boss 302 liked what he saw. There was a talent working hard to breakout and become the best that he could. He had seen Nate on other occasions but this was the first time he was able to watch him race. It was no surprise to Dean when Nate took to the podium weeks later at Ca-nadian Tire Motorsport Park (Mosport), and he was the first to text his congratulations after the race.

 

news006

Fast forward to March 2015 at the Circuit of the Americas where all classes have gathered for the season opener. Mike Stacy happened to cross paths with Dean in the paddock and mentioned that he would really love to get Nate into a competitive GTS Car. Dean had a solution, Rehagen Racing has been building, preparing and providing “Turn-Key” Mustangs since 2007 and would love to work with Nate and Stacy Racing. Over the next few hours, the two discussed the possibility. A few more meetings and a one race deal came together, Nate will be making his GTS debut with Rehagen Racing at Barber Motorsports Park.

“I’m excited to provide Nate this opportunity to drive a competitive car in GTS. Since I will be racing my new GTS Mustang Boss 302S at Barber, the car that I won with at St Petersburg is the car that we have made available to Nate for Barber. I’ve been watching Nate drive for the past few years and he has been very impressive. I’m really looking forward to seeing Nate run in the very competitive GTS class.” – Dean Martin

“I’ve known Dean a few years now, and we started talking in March I knew that he and Rehagen Racing was the right place to go. This opportunity fell into place and they worked with us to make it happen. They are great to work with and have shown us such great support pre-race that I am confident that Nate will do well at Barber. ” – Mike Stacy

MUSTANG BOSS 302 MACHINES RUN WILD WITH CONSECUTIVE WORLD CHALLENGE PODIUM SWEEPS

MAR 30, 2015 | ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA

Dean Martin leads the field in St Petersburg Pirelli World Challenge GTS Race 2015.

 

There are great weekends, and then there is the weekend the Mustang Boss 302 drivers enjoyed in the Pirelli World Challenge series at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.

Dean Martin got things rolling by leading a 1-2-3 Mustang sweep of Friday’s GTS race, finishing ahead of Kurt Rezzetano and Spencer Pumpelly, all of whom piloted Mustang Boss 302 cars.

Pumpelly then found his way to Victory Lane in Saturday’s GTS event, winning ahead of Andrew Aquilante, Rezzetano, and Martin, as the Boss crowd lived up to his name by taking the top four places.

“We learned a lot yesterday,” said Pumpelly after Saturday’s victory. “One of the things we learned was to really attack on the start. We did that today.

“It’s good to be back and have success this weekend. I have to thank the guys for the effort on the Mustang. This win is up there with my other big wins and it is a really special deal.”

Martin claimed his fifth career Pirelli World Challenge win Friday with all of his series victories coming on street courses. With a fastest lap of the race at 1:19.841, Martin earned the pole for Saturday’s Round 4 race.

“It’s always nice when you can qualify on pole position and then lead flag-to-flag with the fastest lap,” said Martin. “The street courses are such that when you are up front it’s tough to pass so you just want to stay there.

“The Mustang is great on the street courses. My style works on street courses, and we talk about it, I have a low self preservation factor. You have to ignore the fact that the walls are there and don’t’ get intimidated. Because if something happens on the street course with the walls, you are a pancake. You just have to have faith in the car. With the Mustang, every time I go to the brake or throttle I know its going to be there.”
