Millville, NJ: June 7, 2011: TKi Motorsport and VAC Motorsports stormed into New Jersey Motorsports Park for a victory at the BMWCCA New Jersey Premiere Event. Driving ace, Josh Koropchak, drove the #26 BMW 330i Touring Car to both overall and class victories during Tuesday’s event. This marks the first victory for Koropchak in a BMW.
For race 1 on Monday, Koropchak was at the wheel of VAC Motorsports E36 M3 Endurance Car. Qualifying 4th in class, Koropchak showed an aggressive pace during the race, working his way up to 2nd place. Unfortunately, with 7 minutes left in the race, and less than 1 second from the leader, Koropchak’s M3 sustained a terminal mechanical failure, forcing a DNF.
For race 2 on Tuesday, Koropchak drove the VAC Motorsports BMW 330i Touring Car. Due to not finishing race 1, Koropchak was forced to start race 2 in 31st position overall and 7th in class. With the drop of the green flag, Koropchak set his sights on the front of the pack, picking off one car at a time. At the checkered flag, Koropchak crossed the line 5th overall and 2nd in class for a podium finish.
As the sun baked the tarmac on the circuit for the final race 3 on Tuesday afternoon, fans and enthusiasts filled the spectator areas, waiting for the BMW’s to take their grid positions. With the green flag flying and BMW engines screaming, Koropchak darted from 4th place to 1st place overall on the first lap, and never looked back. Crossing the finish line with headlights flashing from excitement, Koropchak scored a 1st place overall and class victory, with a blistering 20.963 second lead on 2nd place.
“Between the whole team remaining sharply focused and myself being totally committed to giving my best, we were able to prove that our tireless efforts were up to the vigorous challenges. The foundation of both TKi Motorsport and VAC Motorsports businesses are to develop and prove parts that we sell, and nothing says that more than winning. I would like to thank Tony Salloum for this opportunity, and I hope to be able to bring more wins to the team in the future,” stated Josh Koropchak.
