Without a doubt, one of 2011’s greatest moments was taking the checkered flag at the Devil in the Dark 12 hour endurance race at New Jersey Motorsports Park.
Winning the ITB class was a team effort and we are planning a 1-2 finish as we prepare to enter a pair of VW Golfs in the E4 group class for 2012. Last year’s winning car is back and refreshed with a new maximum spec engine and a host of other upgrades. The team will also be fielding Kirk Knestis’ famous VW, widely known as Pablo. Servicing two cars at the same race for 12 hours straight will be a challenge, but the Maximum Attack Motorsports team will be ready!
Last year’s winning driver line up of Kirk Knestis, Rob Foley, Ed Werry, and Brandon Lewis will be back for 2012. Kirk and Rob are on board to defend the title, and Rob is bringing along his son, Robby. Maximum Attack team principals Brandon and Ed are also putting in their time behind the wheel with the Foley boys, along with veteran road racer and hillclimber Dave Yeager, and former National 2wd rally champion Mark Lawrence.
Both VW’s are being thoroughly gone over. We are sharpening the fine-tooth comb in the shop right now in preparation for the 12 hour coming up in April. Why not open the year with a grueling endurance race that ends at midnight? Sounds like a blast!
Maximum Attack Motorsports is pleased to announce we will be welcoming back our valued sponsors US Rally Team, and H.A. DeHart & Son transportation equipment for this event. A huge ‘welcome aboard’ to CDM Electronics for their support as well. Detailed releases and more news to follow as the 12 hour approaches. Stay tuned!
