Acceleration Weekly published coverage from Willow Springs and Thunderhill, for the Team Scion TC.
Back-to-back wins are always special. And in racing, perhaps more than any other sport, it’s a rarity. But that’s exactly what the Scion Racing team, led by team manager and driver, Dan Gardner, did. Making it even more special was the fact that the wins came exactly seven days apart, giving the team a scant two to three day window to have the car prepped and ready to go after the Willow Springs sprint race win.
The team had to scramble to have the car ready before making the 500-mile trip north of Sacramento. Of key importance was ensuring the car could go the distance for the second Western Endurance Racing Championship (WERC) race of the season at Thunderhill Raceway Park.
With their second WERC win in as many races, the Scion Racing team now has a perfect 200 points in the series in the competitive E1 class. The team looks to make it three in a row as they prepare for the next race, which will end under cover of darkness at Buttonwillow on June 27. The team will also compete in Performance Touring for two sprint races that same weekend.
