New York, NY - Over the Fourth of July weekend, the F2000 Championship Series will visit Watkins Glen for the biggest even of the season with the Indy Cars. The first ever pairing of F2000 and Indy Car will give the large contingent of F2000 drivers and teams an opportunity to be seen on a worldwide stage at one of the best race tracks in North America.
Norwegian racing driver Anders “The Viking” Krohn and Star Mazda Championship team Mundill dominated on their first ever Oval Track showing. Completing 100 laps around the famous Milwaukee Mile, Krohn took the lead on lap 27 and never looked back to win by 1,2 seconds following a late race restart.
The weekend started in the worst possible fashion for the young Texas-based team. When arriving at the track Friday morning they found their tent destroyed and their racing cars filled with water following a heavy storm that struck the Milwaukee area. The entire team put forth an incredible effort and had Krohn’s #27 Mundill/Trallfa/Colosseum race car fixed and ready for the first of two practice sessions.
What do I most remember about last weekend at Mosport? Well... right about now, the fabulous weather. Janice and I arrived back in North Florida and stepped out of the RV into 100+ degree heat. At Mosport, it might have gotten to 80.
JDC MotorSports returned to victory lane in F2000 Championship Series competition over the weekend (June 13-14), as American Chris Miller scored the victory in Round Five, prior to finishing a close second in Round Six at Mosport International Raceway.
