The John Holtger Racing Team was back at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the 2nd race of the U.S. Legend Cars West 2018-2019 Silver State Road racing series the weekend of Jan 5th.
16 drivers took the 2.4-mile asphalt track to show their skills. These racers consisted of 6 drivers competing in the Young Lions class and 10 drivers competing in the Semi-Pro class. The talent and experience these drivers offer is unbelievable!
John hit the track with a fiery in his practice laps ready to go! Unfortunately his car took on some slight damage during the qualifying heat that impacted him for the start of the race. It was nothing significant, but the team was left scrambling to get John ready for race time!
Overall, John kept his speed up and was able to walk away with (2) 2nd place finishes in the Young Lions class on both Saturday and Sunday!
Still holding his own at the top of the pack, John is 2nd in points for the U.S. Legend Car Young Lion division on the Silver State Road Course going into race #3! John had a total of 196 points with 98 being dropped. This leaves him with 296 points overall!!
