Socks Out Racing Rnd1 - Interlagos - Race Report

Round 1 of the Socks Out Racing V8 SuperTrucks Championship was a good showing for Workiva Kinetic Racing. Associate member Marco Mogren started P3, Sven Cammaerts P4, and Wade Hays P5.

 

Cammaerts got a good start, and jumped to P2 early. Attempts to keep pace with defending series champion Bobby Zalenski, and a mid-race battle with Torque Freak Racing's Tim Claessens, took their toll on Cammaerts' tires; dropping him to P4.

 

Patience was a virtue for Mogren. He able to save his tires in the second half of the race while reeling in Cammaerts and Claessens. Claessens had a major slide in the final corner, and Mogren pounced, winning the drag race to the line by 0.045 seconds capturing P2.

 

Hays chose safety over track position on the start, when trucks that had laid back to jump the start forced a four wide situation on the opening lap; dropping to P8 in the first turn. After the pit sequence Hays ran down Torque Freak Racing's Georg Gruber and Team Buschfink's James King, and ran nose to tail for the majority of the second half of the race. On the last lap King nudged Gruber on entry to turn four, sending both trucks off track. Although holding 5th for a brief moment Hays didn't get a good enough run off of 4, and was unsuccessful in an over-under move through turns 6 and 7, having to settle for 6th.
