HUNTER BRAYTON WINS THE WEEKEND AT THE NEW NATIONAL CORVETTE MUSEUM TRACK

SCCA hosted its very first race at the new National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park (http://www.motorsportspark.org/ ) on June 12-14. And the F600 Challenge Series held its second round here of the 2015 season.

In the first race on Saturday, Aaron Ellis continued his win streak, setting the new F500 track record of 2:12.523; coming in second was Hunter Brayton (2:12.620) followed by third place, newcomer Sven deVries. The remaining finishing order was as follows – 4th Ryan Barth, 5th another newcomer Zak Morvik, 6th Carl Maier, 7th Craig Laprade, 8th Katelyn Johnson and 9th George Fox in his new car.

In the second race on Sunday, Aaron Ellis again jumped to the lead while breaking the one race old F500 track record with a 2:10.725. Hunter Brayton was following close behind, breaking his old record with a 2:12.066. On the seventh lap, bad luck struck Aaron as he apparently hit oil and snap spun his car; unfortunately, he was not able to de-clutch the car fast enough during his spin and the starter reversed rotation and destroyed itself while the motor stalled, thus Aaron was unable to restart, ending his race. Hunter inherited the lead and won the race. Finishing second was Ryan Barth, 3rd Zak Morvik, 4th Carl Maier, 5th Aaron Ellis, 6th George Fox, and 7th Craig Laprade.

Points for the weekend are as follows:

1. Hunter Brayton 24 pts
2. Aaron Ellis 22 pts
3. Ryan Barth 20 pts
4. Zak Morvik 18 pts
5. Carl Mair 16 pts
6. George Fox 14 pts
7. Craig Laprade 12 pts
8. Sven DeVreis 11 pts
9. Katelyn Johnson 10 pts

FORMULA 600 CHALLENGE: CLINT MCMAHAN TAKES THE FIRST HONDA CONTINGENCY AT MID-OHIO

With the weather mild and overcast most of each day, this was a good weekend to race. Two new drivers to the F600 Challenge made their very first appearance at the Mid-Ohio Pro race event – Dave Brown, Coldwater, MI, builder of the Wildcat F600 chassis and Barry Luterek, Waterloo, IA, both in new Wildcats with Dave’s car sporting a Honda CBR600. A total of 14 drivers had entered this race which saw the return of Chris Ross and his brand new NovaBlade.

For Saturday’s qualifying, Clint McMahan picked up where he left off from last year’s M-O’s July 4th Pro race with a pole time of 1:29.6 in George Fox’s FDS 007 with a Honda CBR600 onboard, followed by Aaron Ellis, 2nd at 1:30.5 and 3rd, rookie Sven deVries at 1:32.7; 4th was Hunter Brayton, 5th Carl Maier, 6th Barry Luterek, 7th Craig Laprade, 8th Ryan Barth, 9th Ted Simmons, 10th Zak Morvik, 11th Mo Makki, 12th Dave Brown, 13th Katelyn Johnson and 14th Chris Ross. For the race which was 18 laps or 30 minutes, Clint again checked out with a nice lead leaving the battle to Aaron Ellis, Hunter Brayton and Sven deVries who were nose to tail for several laps, followed by the rest of the pack. Clint finished first with a fast lap of 1:30.7, in 2nd, Aaron Ellis, 3rd Hunter Brayton, 4th Sven deVries, 5th Carl Maier, 6th Barry Luterek (showing well for his first Challenge race), 7th Ted Simmons, 8th Zak Morvik, 9th Dave Brown, 10th Mo Makki, 11th Craig Laprade, 12th Ryan Barth, 13th Katelyn Johnson and 14th Chris Ross.

For Sunday’s qualifying, Clint McMahan slowed down by 7 tenths to take the pole with a time of 1:30.3, 2nd and 3rd were surprises as Sven deVries took 2nd with a time of 1:30.1, 3rd was Hunter Brayton 1:31.2, 4th Aaron Ellis, on old tires, slowed down to a 1:32.2, 5th Craig Laprade, 6th Carl Maier, 7th Barry Luterek, 8th Ryan Barth, 9th Ted Simmons, 10th Zak Morvik, 11th Mo Makki, 12th Dave Brown, 13th Katelyn Brown and 14th Chris Ross. The race was checkered at 17 laps as the 30 minute time had lapsed due to a full course double yellow to take care of Katelyn’s medical issues and Chris Ross’s hitting the tire wall at the carousel. At the start, Clint McMahan was surprised by the jump that Aaron Ellis took for the lead now that he had new tires but this only lasted for about 1 1/2 laps as Clint finally re-took the lead at turn 5. Clint slowly pulled away leaving Aaron Ellis to battle it out, yet again, with Hunter Brayton and Sven deVries. They finished in this same order followed by 5th Carl Maier, 6th Barry Luterek, 7th Ryan Barth, 8th Ted Simmons, 9th Zak Morvik, 10th Mo Makki, 11th Dave Brown, 12th Craig Laprade, 13th Katelyn Johnson and 14th Chris Ross. Clint McMahan’s fast lap was a 1:29.4 and took his second first place Honda contingency of the weekend.

The Formula 600 Challenge moves on to Round #4 at Charlotte Motor Speedway with its new infield course, on August 14-16.

FORMULA 600 CHALLENGE: CLINT MCMAHAN AND AARON ELLIS TOPS AT CHARLOTTE MOTOR SPEEDWAY

This event marks the first time that the F600 Challenge has run at Charlotte Motor Speedway and the attraction was the newly reconfigured infield course with a banked left-hand corner entering the infield from the oval promising faster lap times than ever before and it did not disappoint. Ten drivers entered this event.

Saturday’s race saw Clint McMahan take the lead and did not relinquish it even though he was noticeably slowing down the last few laps. It was discovered in impound that the right rear suspension had failed allowing the body to drag the ground. Clint’s fastest lap was a 1:16.097. Following Clint in 2nd was Aaron Ellis, 1:19.188, 3rd was a strong showing by Carl Maier, 4th Ryan Barth, 5th Hunter Brayton, 6th Mo Makki, 7th George Fox, 8th Craig Laprade, 9th Sven deFries and 10th Matt Strand.

With a Sunday quiet time from 8am to 12 noon the race organizers were forced to have the Sunday qualifying late in the afternoon on Saturday, after the Saturday race, leaving very little time to turn the cars around to run qualifying. The paddock was abuzz with everyone running around preparing the cars for the imminent qualifying session. Aaron Ellis qualified on the pole with an improved time of 1:17.877, 2nd was another strong showing by Carl Maier at a 1:21.353, 3rd George Fox, 4th Craig Laprade, 5th Ryan Barth, 6th Hunter Brayton, 7th Mo Makki, 8th Sven deVries and 9th Matt Strand.

For the Sunday race, George Fox graciously loaned his car to Matt Strand who had a hole in his fuel cell so Matt could qualify for the Daytona Runoffs; this happened with precious little time before the race so, yet again, there was a mad rush to get George’s car ready for Matt to drive. For Matt Strand, it was to be a learning experience as he had not done a lap for the whole event. At the start, both Sven and Matt charged up through the field, adding to the excitement of the race, but they could not catch Aaron Ellis who finished 1st with a fast lap of 1:18.322, followed by Sven deVries in 2nd, two seconds behind was Matt Strand in 3rd, Ryan Barth in 4th, Craig Laprade in 5th, Carl Maier in 6th, Hunter Brayton in 7th and Mo Makki in 8th. George Fox and Clint McMahan did not start.

The Formula 600 Challenge moves on to the season finale at the ARRC, Road Atlanta, on November 5-7.

F600 CHALLENGE FINALE RESULTS AT ROAD ATLANTA

With the wet weather during qualifying along with a shortened 2nd qualifying session on Friday the grid for the race did not look familiar at all as Tom Edwards, in his first event of the season, had the pole alongside of Sven deVries in 2nd and Clint McMahan in 3rd alongside Aaron Ellis in fourth. Some fast drivers were stuck in the back as Carl Maier and Hunter Brayton were gridded in ninth and twelveth, respectively. Mo Makki could not start due to a fire in the 2nd qualifying session. The wet conditions kept Zak Morvik, in his newly acquired car from John Pickle, along with Chris Ross from running. Ted Simmons had a leak in his fuel cell so he was scratched. So thirteen F500’s (two cars were two stroke), most on rain tires, took the green flag in slowly drying but cool conditions. At the start, Sven and Clint both immediately jumped to the front as they climbed the hill from Turn One. When they next appeared Clint was in the lead with Sven close behind. Sven’s race ended a lap later when he spun at Turn One and the chain came off. Clint steadily got faster and faster as the race progressed and the track dried on the line and he pulled away from the pack with his faster lap times in the 1:39’s. Aaron Ellis and Ryan Barth maintained 2nd and 3rd places respectively for the finish. Carl Maier moved up to 4th from 9th towing Craig Laprade along with him who finished a close 5th; 76 year old Jack Walbran finished 6th not far behind. 7th was Russell Strate (2 stroke). Tom Edwards spun out late in the race to finish 8th with Hunter Brayton ending up in 9th. The remainder were John Homan (2 stroke) in 10th, Ken Van Horn in 11th, Sven deVries in 12th and last was George Fox in 13th.

Back in November, 2012, we had the very first money race at the ARRC for this series as a way to draw attention to a brand new pro race series. For 2015, we have grown even more and it was our busiest to date. We have raced at Houston Motorsports Park, National Corvette Museum race track, Mid-Ohio, Charlotte Motor Speedway and Road Atlanta ARRC again for the finale. The series had a total of nineteen different drivers competing in 2015. Along with all these drivers the series saw its highest car count on two separate occasions. With all the buzz it looks like 2016 will be bringing even more drivers and larger fields. We have added more sponsors (most notably Honda Performance Development), we have paid out over $25,000 in race purses/tow funds, about $10,000 in individual race contingencies have been awarded and a $5,000 series points fund has been awarded. But our biggest announcement in 2015 is the $250,000 scholarship ride for the 2016 USF2000 series rung of the Mazda Ladder to the Indy Car Series, go here – www.usf2000.com for more information about this class. This was won by Clint McMahan for winning the 2014 series.

The $5,000 Series Point Fund is awarded to those drivers who compete in four race weekends over the 2015 season based on the number of points won by each driver. Thus, for 2015, point’s awards were paid through 9th place. Here are the final points standing for 2015:


1st Aaron Ellis 114
2nd Hunter Brayton 91
3rd Ryan Barth 86
4th Carl Maier 82
5th Sven de Vries 78
6th Clint McMahan 70
7th Craig Laprade 67
8th George Fox 40
9th Mo Makki 37
10th Zak Morvik 29
11th Katelyn Johnson 23
12th Jack Walbran 14
13th Barry Luterek 14
14th Tom Edwards 12
15th Ted Simmons 12
16th Ken Van Horn 10
17th Matt Strand 10
18th Dave Brown 8
19th Chris Ross 5
