TKi Motorsport Scores Podium Finishes at NJMP Race Weekend

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

TKi Motorsport races to podium finishes during the NASA Pro Racing season opener at New Jersey Motorsports Park Lightning Circuit.

The fifteen-minute qualifying session Saturday morning saw nearly fifty cars on the 1.9 mile race circuit. Being first to grid, driver Josh Koropchak had nothing but open track. His flying lap landed him in third position for the race start. With the drop of the green flag, Koropchak found himself on the rear bumper of the second place car. However, due to increased traffic, he was forced off track, unfortunately falling to eighth place. Later, while charging hard through the last turn of the circuit, a car in class spun out on the front straight. With racers trying to avoid the spinning car, Koropchak bolted through an opening in the chaos, advancing nearly three positions. Crossing the finish line, Koropchak of TKi Motorsport raced his way back to third for podium contention.

For Sunday’s race, Koropchak once again battled fiercely with class competitors.  With a smaller pack for this race, there was less traffic, however being mixed with faster and slower classes, Koropchak once again had to weave his way through, planning every turn in advance.  At the end of the final race, Koropchak and the team clinched second place.

“Josh’s driving has strongly matured since last season.  With the forty-five laps logged during Friday’s practice session, coupled with the two, thirty-plus lap races, track time is paying off considerably.  His ability to execute passes and plan maneuvers in advance has improved significantly.” said Ricky Marrero, Team Strategist for TKi Motorsport.
