Jamie Slone wins it for Rehagen Racing at Mid Ohio!
Livonia, Michigan (Jun 23, 2008) - Rehagen Racing came to Mid Ohio for the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge ready to race. Jamie Slone owner and driver of the #6 Slone Racing GoPro/goprocamera.com, Molecule Mustang FR500S not only captured the pole but he won the race Flag to Flag, a first in the series this year. Dean Martin, team manager, said "We consider Mid Ohio our home track and we tested there in April for 4 days. We nailed the setup; Jamie Slone drove a perfect race while taking care of his BF Goodrich G-Force R1 tires and was in control from start to finish. We're very proud of him"
Slone slowly built up a 2-3 second lead just turning lap after lap as the race remained green for quite some time and then out came a caution and a restart ensued. Slone picked up right where he left off and began to pull way again enough to secure the lead and take the checkered flag. Slone said, "I want to thank Rehagen for giving me a great car, my sponsors GoPro and Molecule and I want to thank Billy Big Time Johnson for his coaching, he's terrific. I am thrilled to have won this race for Rehagen at their home track and to have done it with all the Ford Racing executives present. What a great feeling it is to be on top of the podium. A few new guys entered the race this weekend that were very quick as everyone wants to compete in this new awesome series that Miller and Ford have put together."
Another Rehagen Racing driver Jim Click, owner and driver of the Jim Click Racing #54 broke into the top 10 at Mid Ohio. Click started the race in 14th and drove a great race with his best finish of the year. Mike McGovern of the #55 Jim Click Racing started and finished in 7th. Mike Harvison owner and driver of the #11 US TEST, was sitting 5th in points coming into the race at Mid Ohio but encountered some bad luck as he was spun by another driver dropping him back to a 19th place finish. George Winkler won the BF Goodrich Take Control award moving up 7 spots to finish 14th. Slone now leads the Rehagen Racing charge for a championship and after three rounds is second with 150 points just 15 shy of Leader Andrew Caddell.
The Miller Cup series heads to Barber Motorsports Park July 20 for Round 4 where Rehagen has excelled before with Slone in the Koni Challenge series last year. Martin says, "We just love that down home hospitality and southern cooking, seems to make our guys go fast."
