After a dominating season, RP Performance and partners Performance Auto Works have locked up 4 championships in the Mid-Atlantic Road Racing Series for 2009. We conquered in SM, SSM, ITA and SRX7, bringing RP’s total up to 26 championships in 15 years of competition.

The Zalner brothers, Ken and Brian, finished in 1st and 2nd place respectively in SM giving Ken his 9th championship in 10 years. Scott Brunk claimed the championship in SSM and captured a new track record at Summit Point Raceway this weekend at the season finale with a blistering time of 1:28.052.

Phenom sophomore season driver Brian Price won the ITA championship in his SM Miata and capped off his season with a pair of wins on the weekend. As if the ITA championship was not enough, Brian also managed to bring it home in 4th place in the SM standings as well.

SRX-7 had a hotly contested battle between RP drivers “F1″ Al Gervais and Dave Ade. In the end, it was Dave Ade emerging victoriously as SRX-7’s newest champion. Al brought it home in 2nd place and rookie sensation Kevin Hutchens rounded out the top 3 for a total RP Performance podium sweep in the highly competitive SRX-7 class.

RP Performance would like to send out a special thank you to all of its drivers and fans for the continued support that our race team has received and continues to receive on an ongoing basis throughout the years.

Thank You!!!

RP picked up where we left off last year and the first race weekend gives us a strong start to the 2009 Season. On Saturday, Ken was fighting with transmissions problems and got caught up with another car under the bridge into turn 10. Brian finished 5th after struggling with mechanical issues as well. The RP team worked hard to get both cars in working order for the Sunday race and it paid off: Ken started in 3rd and Brian in 6th and they finished in 2nd and 4th respectively. Ken was running 3rd but passed Mike with one lap to go to take 2nd while laying down a hot lap of 1:27.6. In SSM: Scott had a great finish in 2nd on Saturday. In Sunday’s race he started in 4th and battled with Ed York in a two car race for 2nd place until his far fell off pace with mechanical issues. He kept it together and finished a respectable 19th in a 54 car field.
