Summit Point, WV - Zach Holden closed out the weekend at Summit Point with a dominating victory in the third and final F1600 Championship Series race of the event on the 10-turn course. Holden swept both Sunday races for K-Hill Motorsports, with two wins in the No. 96 Mygale/Honda. Both races were run flag-to-flag in competitive all-green-flag conditions. Following Holden, Matthew Cowley finished second for Team Pelfrey and Yuven Sundaramoorthy was third in a second K-Hill car in the 23-lap race.
in the Masters Class, Joel Hass also swept the day with two wins for Rice Race Prep.
Quotes from the Top Finishers:
"It was a good Sunday, I'm happy with how it turned out. I saw battling behind me, looked in my mirrors and knew I had to set consistent fast laps."
"Zach had pace on all of us in that race. I was hanging onto the draft but Yuven came into the mix and Zach got away. We've had three podiums this weekend on all three steps."
"It was pretty frantic. I stayed in the back and watched it. With five laps to go I caught up, made it to third, had a chance of second but messed up turn one on the last lap."
"That was a lot of fun out there. I was driving much harder than the times would indicate, that was everything I had. I was lucky to keep Mike (Scanlan) behind me."
Next up, Formula Race Promotions heads for its season finale at New Jersey Motorsports Park, October 6-8, 2017. F1600 will see a traditional tripleheader weekend to decide its Championship, with title battles going over double races on offer for F2000 and Atlantic.
