Round 5 Recap: Auto Club Speedway

Round 5 of the Roadster Cup was packed full of action at the beautiful Auto Club Speedway this past weekend! We had our good friends at Vtec Club there with us along with Muscle Car Cup, PLUS it was the annual Mazfest! This means there were show cars, vendors, and track cars! We were lucky enough to have our awesome sponsors Goodwin Racing, Circuit Sports, and StopTech there. Brad from StopTech was kind enough to do a presentation during lunch about brakes.

Despite all of the action off the track, there was even more on the track! With so many competitions running simultaneously in one track day, we had to share the track with the Muscle Cup Cars along with track day attendees. Despite traffic, the weather was great and we still had some fast times!  Let’s jump into the results.
