non-winged purpose built single seat race cars in a highly competitive class for all competitors. Honda Racing HPD division has provided the FIT motor to this series riding on Hoosier Tires on a MyGale Chassis with all cars relatively equal as possible which makes the racing exciting.
In the NJMP’s Thunderbolt road course – Calvin Ming of Guyana qualified 2nd overall in the # 82 Team Pelfrey car with a time of 1:23.273 which was .0412 of a second behind # 24 Peter Portante for pole position for race # 1.
In race # 1, from the drop of the green flag, # 24 Peter Portante, K-Hill Motorsports ran away with the lead with # 82 Calvin Ming, Team Pelfrey hot on his tail with more than half the 9 car field chasing with numerous lead exchanges in a caution free race. What was arguably one of the most spectacular races of the season saw the entire lead group separated by mere inches as they battled hard throughout the incident free race. In the end, # 3, Neil Verhagen of K-Hill Motorsports snagged 3rd place and padded his series leading championship points lead.
But, it was all Team Pelfrey! # 81, Phillippe Denes had to settle for 2nd place with only 0.001s behind teammate # 82, Calvin Ming in a photo finish who won the 20 laps battle by the narrowest margin ever recorded.
Race #2 of the weekend saw K-Hill Motorsports battle Team Pelfrey once again. This race had a lot of excitement but, ultimately came down to these two teams factoring into the overall results. Unable to mount a challenge, Team Pelfrey’s # 81, Phillippe Denes finished 4th with teammate # 82, Calvin Ming coming up just 0.1064s behind the eventual race winner to grab the final podium spot. The story? # 3, Neil Verhagen started last overall and made quick work of the competition by passing all cars in dominating fashion whilst getting his teammate, # 24, Peter Portante to follow. The race was won by # 3 Neil Verhagen followed closely by teammate # 24 Peter Portante as K-Hill Motorsports returned to dominance in the 17th of 21 race schedule.

K-Hill Motorsports, Neil Verhagen extends his narrow overall points lead going into the
final three rounds of the 21 race season schedule at Virginia International Raceway, Sept. 30 – Oct. 2.

This crop of racers in this series is leagues above the rest of similar series offered anywhere! The respect they have for each other and the competitiveness from each driver is unbelievable.
