It’s an annual tradition for a few Tire Rack employees to make the trip to Lincoln, Nebraska to compete in the Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships and ProSolo Finale beginning this weekend. Chris "Trent" Harvey, John "Woody" Rogers and William "Bill" Loring each compete in different classes and are seasoned veterans. In fact, Trent has brought a trophy back home to South Bend, Indiana eight separate times and Bill is a two-time national champion.
Trent, brand manager (brakes and suspension), will be competing in the C-Street class while driving his 2009 Mazda Miata. He will also be participating in the ProSolo event on August 30 and 31. Currently sitting in third place in the points standing for the ProSolo category and sixth in the overall points, he is ready to make the leap to first! He also happens to have a two-time national champion as his co-driver, Chris Fenter!
Competing in the Street Touring Roadster class, Woody is our product information specialist (tires) and will be driving his 2002 Honda S2000. There will be 44 drivers competing in his class on Tuesday and Wednesday and we're rooting for a solid finish for him this year.
Bill Loring, from our IT department, will be driving in the C-Street Prepared class in a 1996 Mazda Miata. This will be the fourth different vehicle Bill has used to compete over the years. As one who won a national championship in 2011 and 2012, Bill is determined to add a third title to his resume.
Good luck to all! Drive fast, don’t hit any cones and have a blast!
