INDIANAPOLIS – The USAC Honda .25 National Tour made a stop in San Antonio, Texas this weekend, for round three of the 2014 season.
Winners took home authentic cowboy hats along as the special club prize. The race culminates the Western Regional portion, promoted by AutoNation. USAC youth have continued their support of Easter Seals Midwest contributing another $600 toward Autism Awareness Programs.
“We were very happy with the turn out for our race,” said Jon Randall, president of the Club. “We hold local races at our track but when the national events come to town, we can double and triple the car count. It makes for really good racing! The rain held off and we had some cooler temperatures. The USAC Officials ran a great show for us. We just can’t thank them enough for coming to Texas.”
Carson Hocevar of Portage, Mich., took home four wins (Hvy Honda, Honda Hvy 160, Briggs Sr Animal and Briggs Hvy World Formula), while Famous Rhodes of Parkland, Fla., captured two wins (Sr Honda and Lt Mod). Other drivers taking home gold medals were Luke Lawless of Bellville, Texas (Red Rookie), Wyatt Edgell of Richmond, Texas, (Blue Rookie), Brady Johnson of Mooresville, N.C. (Jr Honda), Tanner Reif of Henderson, Nev., (Briggs Jr Animal), Chase Randall of Waco, Texas, (Honda Light 160) and Logan Heath of Hereford, Ariz. (Briggs Lt World Formula).
“We enjoy going out west in April,” said Kyle McCain, USAC Director. “We get out of the cold and begin the National Tour with the Western Regional Series which revs up our momentum. We have a break for a couple weeks until round four where the majority of our Eastern Racers will join the tour. Nashville is always a popular stop for our families.”
