Mustangs Dominate 25 hours of Thunderhill

December 8th 2019, Willows Ca.

The endurance race started Saturday at 11 a.m. and concluded Sunday at noon. The 25 Hours of Thunderhill is one of the most challenging auto races in the country and this year’s event proved it with drivers battling rain, mud and wind throughout the event.

In one of most grueling endurance races of the last years where adverse weather put handling to the test, it is incredible to see CorteX Racing suspension in action across the podium.

2019 NASA Pro Racing 25 Hours of Thunderhill E0 Class winners:

Dale Sievwright, Dan McKeever, Brian Smith and Ryan Roberson!

The group ran a Ford Mustang GT, and the only upgrade was the suspension.

– Nasa Speed News

Conditions were so bad, drivers described it more like a rally.

We didn’t have the pace in the wet, but we knew we had the pace in the dry, so we were watching the changing conditions,

We just tried to keep it on track and fortunately luck was in our favor today.

– John Birkhead

Fantastic Finish by Spec Mustangs, 2nd in E0

While MPACT won by 19 laps in the E0 class, the race was much closer, with DIG Motorsports and Honda Racing THRW mixing it up and making it tough sledding early in the race.

DIG Motorsports finished second in a Ford Mustang and Honda Racing THRW 2 finish third in a Honda Civic Type R.

CorteX Racing equipped Spec Mustangs driven by Beau Borders, Roger Eagleton and others drivers finish 2nd in the E0 class.  


Mustang or “Mudtang”?

What came to be deemed the ‘MUDtang’ displayed some awesome driving in more rally cross conditions than circuit racing.

Trans Am GT Champion- Eagleton Mustang

CorteX Racing Spec Mustang Wins Title

Congratulations Roger Eagleton the 2019 West Coast GT Champion!
Cheers to Beau Boarders on Podium win!

It is great to see talented drivers like Roger and Beau lead the Trans Am GT class equipped with our CorteX Racing Spec Mustang SMG suspension system.


Oct 5th 2019

Hawaii resident Roger Eagleton was crowned Trans Am presented by Pirelli West Coast Champion in the GT Class.

The West Coast Championship GT Class teams had not seen competitive action on the track since Portland, Oregon at the end of July when Roger claimed second spot on the podium to give him a total of 125 points and the lead in the Championship heading to Texas.

Roger’s weekend in the No. 98 Five Star Property Management / Energy Real Estate Ford Mustang began with a time of 2:38:784 in practice, a time he bettered with 2:35:310 in qualifying to claim the second spot in class on the grid behind pacesetter Joe Bogetich (No. 65 Westover Controls Chevrolet Camaro SS).

Although Bogetich then went flag-to-flag for the win, it was Roger Eagleton who claimed the overall GT West Coast Championship with his second-place finish.

Beau Boarders (No. 7 APEX Race Parts/ CorteX Racing Ford Mustang) completed the GT podium in third (2nd for the Season).

“It’s really a great honor to win the West Coast Championship in the GT class.

The team DIG Motorsports is only in the third year of existence and to win a pro-level championship is really amazing. A lot of thanks goes to Trans Am to make this possible.

It’s a great stepping stone for us as we want to work up to TA2.” – Roger Eagleton


We all look forward to seeing what Roger can achieve next year, but first let’s congratulate him on this fine Championship.

Eagleton Expecting Great Racing as Trans Am GT Returns to Sonoma

Sonoma, CA – June 5, 2019 – GT Racing returns to wine country, and specifically the beautiful hills north of San Francisco the weekend of June 14-16 when Round 4 of the 2019 Trans Am West Coast Championship presented by Pirelli gets underway.

On what is effectively a home track, California native Roger Eagleton will be looking to continue his fine start of the season in the GT class, where he has already tasted success this year, winning the opening round of the season at Thunderhill before a podium second place at Laguna Seca in the beginning of May.


Thunderhill is a particularly happy hunting ground for Roger, who has twice won the “world’s longest race” – the 25 Hours of Thunderhill.

The 2017 SCCA Spec Mustang Champion, Roger is also very familiar with the demands of Sonoma – and indeed with the unique qualities of the current crop of Ford Mustangs – having competed there as recently as October of 2018 during the SCCA Runoffs.


Testing for the weekend’s action begins next Friday morning, June 14 with a solid 55-minute session, followed by an hour practice in the afternoon. The smaller fields that assemble for the West Coast Championship should mean Roger and his crew are able to get plenty of clear road to ensure the car is set up to be competitive. A forty-minute practice session on Saturday, June 15, is followed in the afternoon by the all-important qualifying session, with the race going green for the Trans Am feature race at 12:45 p.m. on Sunday, June 16.


Roger’s race car for the SCCA accredited 2019 Trans Am West Coast Championship presented by Pirelli is the No. 98 Five Star Property Management / Energy Real Estate Ford Mustang. A successful entrepreneur, Roger promotes partnerships within his businesses and network. Five Star Property Management is the Bay Area’s premier boutique property management company, while Energy Real Estate is based in Roger’s hometown of Burlingame and is primarily concerned with Residential Sales.


Speaking ahead of next weekend’s action, Roger was clearly looking forward to racing again when he told us,

“The entire team at DIG Motorsports is excited to head to the race weekend at Sonoma Raceway with Trans Am. This is our third ever Trans Am event weekend as a team and we are very focused on the West Coast Series at the moment. The competition in the GT class is really heating up and it will be challenging for us to continue to do well.”


The GT class cars that Roger competes in are heavier, less powerful cars than the TA and TA2 cars that he will share the track with, something he acknowledged when he added,

“We are in a much heavier and lower horsepower car compared to rest of field, but we know Sonoma really well, it is a great track for us, and we hope we can make up for some of the power differences with the great braking and handling performance that is a signature of these Spec Mustangs. No matter what, we know that this upcoming Trans Am weekend should make for some great racing for the fans and there should be some really good battles going on!”


Sonoma Raceway, formerly Sears Point Raceway and Infineon Raceway, is a 2.52-mile road course and drag strip located on the landform known as Sears Point in the southern Sonoma Mountains in Sonoma, California, USA. The road course features 12 turns on a hilly course with 160 ft of total elevation change.

ElginRacing Wins 2015 Devil in the Dark 12 Hour Endurance Race

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.

ElginRacing Crew

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’s 2014 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.

ElginRacing posted updates, images and videos from the race on its Facebook page: www.facebook.com/elginracing.

Spring 2014 – Barber Motorsports Park – Dean Martin, driver of the #50 Rehagen Racing Mustang Boss 302 liked what he saw.

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.

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.

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

Article courtesy of Ford Performance

MAR 30, 2015 | ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA

dean-martin-st-pete-2015

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.”

mmmm
