TOPEKA, KS – August 9, 2019: Both CTech-sponsored Chevy Camaros made it to the final round last weekend at Heartland Motorsports Park, and the Hool Brothers came through with their first win of the season in Top Alcohol Funny Car.
The breakthrough win came after a long but consistent weekend in Topeka, Kansas. The weather was manageable from start to finish and the entire TAFC field was very aggressive at the line, as evident by the ‘lopsided’ Round 1 results (See button below). According to the team’s weekend recap, the Hool Brothers chose a more conservative setup in the later stages, paying dividends as their competition smoked the tires looking for an advantage. Kevin Hool had this to say about the weekend:
“We had made good decisions, Kris drove very well, the car responded to every change we made, and we got the win.” -Kevin Hool
Defending Division V Champion Jim Greenheck made a valiant effort in Competition Eliminator, as current Division V points leader Matt Harris ended up taking the win in the final round after an extremely close run to the line. Jim continues a very consistent effort this year, going deep into eliminations once again and coming out of the event in a tidy 2nd place in the standings.
Next on the schedule for the CTech-sponsored duo is Brainerd Intl. Speedway in Minnesota, August 10-11. We’re hoping that both teams keep up the consistent performance as we charge through the second half of the season!
