La Rocca Stays Hot In Jersey


MILLVILLE, N.J. – Completing an easy day at New Jersey Motorsports Park, F2000 Championship point leader Robert La Rocca took his sixth win in seven races in dominating fashion at New Jersey Motorsports Park Saturday.

“That was a tough race due to the extreme heat,” said La Rocca, noting 100-plus degree temperatures in New Jersey. “HP-Tech gave me a great car yet again that was consistent to run quick the entire race.”

Tim Minor notched another good result and podium for Ski Motorsports with his second place effort, also winning the Masters Class.

Kevin Kopp slotted into the final podium spot, driving Minor’s old Van Diemen, and improving his best result so far of the season with his first career F2000 podium.

La Rocca’s closest challenge in the points standings, Niki Coello, ran second early in the race as La Rocca checked out. But, Coello would fail to bring home significant points, retiring to the paddock with wing damage on his No. 81 RFR chassis.
