Max Attack team prepares to defend endurance racing title

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.

Celebrating Our Devil in the Dark Win

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!

Two new race cars enter the stable

One of the most competitive and fastest growing classes in SCCA road racing is STU (Super Touring Under) and that is exactly where this former Grand Am series Dodge SRT4 is headed in 2012.

SRT4 race car

We are currently going through the car from top to bottom and adding some nice upgrades to this already very potent turbocharged machine.

Another growing area of road racing is the world of tube chassis, fire-breathing, V8 powered ‘stock cars.’ There are lots of places to play with these kinds of cars… and trucks. Yes trucks, or Super Trucks like ours, which will be raced in the SPO (Super Production Over) class.

Chevrolet Race Truck

Just like the SRT4, the Super Truck is being gone through and upgraded whenever and wherever possible. Keep an eye out for more updates, specs and photos.
