Article on scca.com
ELKHART LAKE, Wis. – Lawrence Loshak, of Milwaukee, Wis., could not be caught at Road America as he stormed to a commanding D Sports Racing win over Chris Farrell, of Salt Lake City, Utah, at the 2010 SCCA National Championship Runoffs Presented by Subway. Michael Scully, of Calabasas, Calif., finished third. Starting second in the No. 02 ETE Reman/GY Moon Super Cycle KWS Stohr WF1/Suzuki, Loshak drag-raced Gumout Polesitter Farrell into Turn One and came out the victor. It was the last Farrell would see of Loshak, who, by the end of the opening lap, had already secured a lead of more than two seconds.
“Looking through some data, I wasn’t really happy with the mechanism on our car which helps keep the throttle to the floor while we shift,” Loshak said. “I wasn’t happy with what it was doing to the air/fuel ratio, so I disconnected it. The green flag was actually my first time going back to the old fashioned way where you lift as you shift. I hit the rev limiter going into second and third. The third was actually when I was able to pull on Chris [Farrell] a little bit. Knowing Chris’ background, I’ve raced with him a couple of times this season, I knew we could go in there two-wide and be respectful. I was able to go in to Turn One full force.”
Loshak continued at full force and when the checkered flag waved to end the 13-lap, 52-mile race, Loshak had amassed a 3.752-second lead, averaging 114.783 mph. It is the second SCCA National Title for Loshak, who won the E Production National Championship in 2006.
“We were disappointed last year, so my crew worked their tails off to get here,” Loshak continued. “We had many sleepless nights, so this was my turn to work hard. I didn’t want to let them down and bringing home the gold was definitely the goal.”
