The Streak: DNN Motorsports’ Four Year Honda Challenge Domination

By ROB KRIDER

I’m going to start this story by telling you the ending first. Long story short: we won the 2019 NASA Honda Challenge 4 National Championship at Mid-Ohio, presented by Toyo Tires. When I say “we” I’m referring to Double Nickel Nine Motorsports because even though I was in the driver’s seat smashing on the gas pedal when the checkered flag flew in Ohio, I didn’t singlehandedly win the championship. The team won, I’m just a small part of it.

“If I’m someone who wants to do harm to America, I forget about the electric grid, I forget about the elections system — I go to your car.” said the author of a recent report on hacking the always-on internet connection found in new cars .

Race CaRX repair date is Friday, December 15th, 1-4 pm

You may not have those new tools from Santa yet but your old ones will do nicely.  Heck, just bring yourself!  Things will get underway at the home of Danby Crowder at 1pm and be over at 4.  We need helpers of all types.  So, whether you want to work on metal prep, transmission repairs, a steering rack or just want to sit by the fire we’d love to have you.  Who knows, maybe the efforts and the fire just might inspire you.

Burn, baby, burn!

Update:

It was the ‘Day of the Dans’ as Danny Wilson, Danby and special guest Dan Corcoran pooled their efforts to poke and prod the CRX.  Oh yeah, I was there too.  Much was accomplished as we removed a number of cross-members, dismantled the transmission and steering rack along with the front steering components.  We pressed, peened and pooled our talent and all there had a good day.  Worry not, folks.  There’s more where this came from.
