USTCC East Series Racers Conquer the 2022 Season
An outstanding season of USTCC East racing is now in the history books and all the championships have been decided following the final round at Pittsburgh International Raceway. In a season that began at Summit Point, WV in April and crisscrossed the Mid-Atlantic states, we saw outstanding competition, close racing and exciting championship battles that came down to the final race of the season.
Each of the 4 rounds offered its own set of challenges, from cold track temperatures, excessive crankcase blow-by, ignition distributor woes, catastrophic cylinder detonation and water pump failures. Each team was dealt an unsavory hand at each of the events, but like true professionals, they were able to mend their cars with the help of their fellow USTCC East competitors.
Andrew Conner brought home the Super Touring season honors. The On Q Racing M-Powered E90 325i was a stable platform for its veteran driver. The team was able to gather some much-needed data for both suspension and engine tunning parameters, which will be carried forward into 2023.
Coyote Black secured the Sportsman Championship at Pittsburgh International Raceway. Coyote’s Acura Type R proved to be a formidable opponent on track, but with all racecars, gremlins haunted the Savage Garage team at each event. Coyote’s team was able to press forward and claim the top spot for 2022.
USTCC East provided racing fans with quality racing and close competition all season long. The teams are now planning and preparing for the 2023 season and before you know it, testing will begin.
We can hardly wait until Summit Point in April.
