Traveling to Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, WISKO Racing brought a quartet of drivers to the 4.048-mile, 14-turn Road America facility. Entering the event as the Team and Driver Championship point leader, WISKO Racing left Wisconsin with one victory and a pair of podium results along with a handful of top-ten finishes.
After the Promoters Test Day on Thursday, it was time for a busy Friday that saw a pair of practice sessions, followed by qualifying and the first wheel-to-wheel action on the weekend. Platinum class driver Jim Booth led the way in the ever-important qualifying session earning a fifth-place starting spot for race one while David Alban qualified eighth in Pro 1500, out-qualifying current Pro 1500 point leader and overall championship contender Danny Dyzelski, who was uncharacteristically down in tenth, just ahead of Richard Durocher in P11.
Once the racing began, it was a drama-filled opener on Friday afternoon as a first-corner incident brought out a quick yellow flag that slowed the field. However, Booth would be collected in the incident and forced to retire from the Platinum class. Dyszelski was able to slither his way through the mess and keep his nose clean throughout the 16-lap race, crossing the line third and earning another podium result for both himself and WISKO Racing. Richard Durocher and David Alban were classified 11th and 12th when the checkered flag flew as the entire team would shift their focus to Saturday.
Dyszelski led the WISKO Racing program in the second race of the weekend on Saturday afternoon as he was able to extend his point lead by claiming the victory as he keeps his eyes on the championship. Richard Durocher and David Alban both completed the full race distance and would look to improve their performances on Sunday. Platinum driver Jim Booth closed his Saturday with a sixth-place finish, an improvement from a DNF in Friday’s wheel-to-wheel racing.
Continuing leading on Sunday, Dyszelski performed once again in front of a packed house of NTT INDYCAR SERIES fans. Crossing the stripe first for his second win and third podium result of the weekend, it was thought to be another extension in the point lead for the Pro 1500 driver. However, post-event, Dyszelski was penalized for an on track incident and relegated to sixth. David Alban earned his best result of the weekend closing race three with a fifth-place result while Richard Durocher unfortunately failed to finish and was classified ninth in class. Despite scoring the fourth fastest lap in the Platinum class, Jim Booth finished ninth.
Next up for WISKO Racing and the Blue Marble Radical Cup North America program is a trip north of the border to Toronto, Canada to compete in the Streets of Toronto over the July 14-16 weekend.
