Not just one, but two podium's were taken this weekend! And when we say "taken," both wins were truly special events for the teams...
First, at ULTRA4 MetalCloak Stampede, Loren Healy took a hard-fought first with Shannon Campbell following second and Wayland Campbell in third. The three drivers were joined by their Nitto Racing teammate, Derek West, in 4th. We'll be sharing a full recap shortly, but the two days of racing on the short-course style track at Prairie City SVRA commanded drivers to plant every ounce of power they could on the ever-changing dirt terrain. This win marks just the second time a full podium has been won raced on a single tire in the Ultra4 series.
1st, Odi Bakchis; 2nd, Ken Gushi; 3rd, Chris Forsberg
If that wasn't enough excitement in one day of racing, the off-road victory was paired with another amazing Nitto Racing win at Formula Drift Atlanta.
