Momentum from overall win in Portland key to closing out championship
It is race week at the Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC) and Audi Sport customer racing (AScr) drivers Parker Chase and Ryan Dalziel will head west with the hopes of continuing their winning streak as well as closing out the Pirelli World Challenge GT SprintX Championship. On the strength of five victories and multiple podiums, Chase and Dalziel, drivers of the #19 Vertical Bridge / New Braunfels Convention and Visitors Bureau / ProBalance Protein Water / Music Movement / eRaceAutism.com Audi R8 GT3 LMS, lead the points battle going into the final SprintX weekend of the season.
“I am really excited to get the weekend underway,” explains Chase. “We’re leading the GT SprintX Pro/Am Championship by a good margin, so we are just hoping we can carry our momentum from Portland and win this championship. We need to have a clean race and do our best to gain as many points as possible and the rest will work itself out.”
“Parker and I have some great momentum just now,” adds Ryan Dalziel. “The team has been working really well together and giving us a great car these past few races and our results are a nice reward for their hard work. The Utah conditions won’t favor our package as well as Portland did but either way, we will give it 110% and try to wrap up this 2018 SprintX championship for all our marketing partners, sponsors and supporters.”
Taking to the track on Friday for two official practice sessions, qualifying will take place Saturday morning for the first wheel-to-wheel action on the weekend that afternoon. Race two will take place on Sunday afternoon. Follow the Parker Chase social media pages for up-to-date news, information, photos, results and schedule throughout the weekend.
