2013 NASA South East SpecE30 @ Roebling Road Raceway

Another exciting weekend to the 2013 NASA South East SpecE30 season as TPR's 2 car entries co-sponsored and prepared by Harrison Motorsports competed at Roebling Road Raceway on April 13 & 14.

Racing in an extremely competitive 20 car SpecE30 field, Eric Palacio, driving the lead TPR entry, won Saturday's feature race leading flag to flag, with the senior team driver, Julio Palacio, taking the final podium spot in 3rd place.

On Sunday, with rain on the horizon, the team gambled on pending rain (only cars to run full rain tires) and used their front pack starting positions to hold off the field when the rain held off until race end. The team hung on to 3rd and 6th finishes with Eric (incredibly) leading the first part of the race.

Congratulations to the team on a fantastic start to the season. TPR is currently 1-2 in the SpecE30 season point standings.

The next event is May 18 & 19 at Carolina Motorsports Park.
