Justin Hall Leaves DIG Motorsports Team
Davis, CA, July 12 / After a promising season start in the SPEED World Challenge Touring Car Championship that saw series rookie Justin Hall run at the front of the pack at Infineon Raceway as well as win several prestigious awards but also suffer some major mechanical issues, Hall has elected to withdraw from the series temporarily.
"SPEED World Challenge is the finest touring car racing in North America," said two- time B&M Holeshot Award winner Hall. It was a tough decision to relinquish my spot in the DIG Motorsports car, but I am nevertheless looking forward to new challenges in this competitive series. I wish DIG Motorsports nothing but the greatest success."
Hall won the B&M Shifters Holeshot Award most recently for passing 4 cars on the opening lap at the Infineon Raceway round of the SPEED World Challenge Touring Car Championship while rocketing from 7th on the grid to 3rd before Turn 1 and was putting pressure on second place when his motor expired on Lap 6.
At the previous race at Mid-Ohio, Hall won both the Holeshot Award and the Sunoco Hard Charger Award for his 34th to 17th place stampede after mechanical difficulties in qualifying.
"As someone who got his start in SCCA Club Racing, I can testify that SPEED World Challenge is the goal that club racers everywhere aim for," Hall continued. "I look forward to rejoining this fantastic and competitive race series as soon as possible."
