2014 Atlanta Match Tour Recap

Kestrel Racing 91 Honda Civic Si

Next stop Atlanta. This was the first event for Jeff at Turner Field in Atlanta, GA, so was excited to check out a new site. AJ couldn’t make it, so John Wolf stepped in to take his place. The team arrived Friday afternoon for the test-n-tune to scrub in some new front tires and get some practice on the mixed brick and asphalt surface.

The weather played an important role again at this event. On Friday the weather was perfect with sunny skies and temps in the low 80’s, however rain and cooler weather would dampen the rest of the weekend.

On Saturday the weather turned much cooler with morning temps in the mid 50’s.  STC had 6 drivers. Most of whom had competed at Dixie this year and were eager for a rematch. Unfortunately rain during the early part of the run group made for a slow start, but times picked up as it started to dry out. Competition was intense with the lead changing hands after almost every run. In the end Cory Dreyfus took the win with Jeff taking 2nd place just .090 sec back. John Wolf took 5th place.
