The sun and heat strained down during Round 2 of NASA Pro Racing Northeast Series at New Jersey Motorsports Park Lightning Circuit on May 29th and May 30th. But that didn’t stop Josh Koropchak from claiming podium finishes during the weekend.
Saturday morning’s qualifying session put Josh Koropchak in second place, however, due to technical issues with the racing series, he was forced to start from the back of the eleven car pack for Saturday’s afternoon race. With the drop of the green flag, Koropchak stormed into pace attempting to reach the front of the class. Crossing the finish line at the end of the 45-minute stint, Koropchak yielded a 3rd place finish, landing him on the podium.
On race two Sunday, Koropchak found a fourth place start on the grid. Unfortunately, after Koropchak chased his way to first place, the Volvo S60 race car began to suffer cooling issues. In spite of this setback, Koropchak was still able to capture 3rd place for TKi Motorsport.
“The season has started off well for TKi Motorsport and our Volvo S60,” said Koropchak. “We are working extremely hard for the top position at the end of the season, and with perseverance we will prevail.”
“The weekend saw stellar performance from car, driver, and crew. We are quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with,” said Ricky Marrero, Team Strategist.
TKi Motorsport also hosted their first “Volvos at the Track” event in coordination with Swedespeed.com. The event allowed Volvo owners free admission to the track, free food and beverages, free entrance in raffle with prizes from TKi, IPD, VolvoCountry.com, Swedespeed.com, and NJMP, and an exclusive tour of the TKi paddock. The event concluded with Volvo parade laps on track with each participant donating ten dollars to charity.
“I had a really great time today at the track! TKi did an amazing job at hosting the Volvo group at the event. Josh is a great racer!” said Michael Farrell, participant in the Volvos at the Track event.
The TKi Motorsport Volvo S60 race car will appear at Pocono Raceway on July 16, July 17, and July 18.
