Lincoln ProSolo

4 May , 2010   David  

SCCA ProSolo’s always bring some fun action with cars going head to head on nearly identical courses and a drag strip start, last weekend’s Pro Solo event held May 1st & 2nd, 2010 at Lincoln Air Park in Lincoln, NE was no different. There were some great class battles all weekend, which made for some great action. The Super Challenge ended with a blast of wind, sand and rain as Patrick Washburn, in his Lucky Lugnut Racing Honda Civic defeated James Wilson, the STX class winner in his Subaru Impreza WRX for the Super Challenge win.

Pat and Vitek swapped places multiple times before Pat was finally able to pull out the win in the 2006 Subaru STi sponsored by and on Kumho tires. Fellow Team GotCone driver Andrew Elias took 4th in STU.
