Texas Electric On-Road Series Rd2 – Report

Texas Electric On-Road Series Rd2 – Report

Round two of the Texas Electric On-Road Series was held this past Sunday at RSD Speedway in Houston, Texas. 54 entries in total were present between the six classes. Three rounds of qualifying and single mains were run on the new fast and flowing lay-out. A cold front in the weather the day before resulted in medium traction conditions on the carpet. This change in the norm caused drivers to search for traction and steering in their setups. In Modified Touring Car and after three rounds of qualifying, Brandon McNally topped the time charts and claimed TQ by 3 seconds over recently crowned ROAR National Champion Chris Adams. Another 3 seconds behind Adams was 3rd qualifier, David Joor. During qualifying, John Hodges would put together the fastest overall lap of the entire weekend, by over a tenth, with a 9.3 second lap.

In the main, mistakes in the opening laps by McNally would allow for Adams to get by and control the race to the end for the win. Starting in 6th, Andrew Doherty would put together a great run to complete the podium.

Stock Touring Car would prove to be the largest class of the event with 19 entries. Sponsored drivers Mackenzie “Mackie” Meyercord and Chris Kemper would battle all day long, along with Guillaume “G-MAN” Herve, at the top. The three would complete qualifying in that order with only 3 seconds separating them. The A-main would prove to be dramatic with 2nd and 3rd lap errors and collisions dropping Mackie and G-Man to the last positions. In the chaos, it looked like Kemper would cruise to victory. However, Mackie would put together an incredible string of fast laps to close in to Kemper’s rear bumper with 45 seconds left in the 5-minute race. With three laps to go, Mackie placed a clean inside pass around the sweeper section of the track on Kemper. He would hold the lead for the final 2 laps to claim victory. Brian Montgomery completed the podium.
