SCCA on 2nd to Last Race

Posted: Updated:

The Sports Car Club of America have engines gear up as they get down to one of this years final few race days at the Expo Park.

"Today is the end of the race season we do have one more event down here at the Expo Park next weekend on Sunday the 13th of October. It will be the last event of the year and we will just have some other events, social events, gatherings, towards the rest of the year," explains SCCA President Dustin Osperg.

For racer Dennis Dadej this gives him only a few more chances this season to take his car as fast as he can.

"It's fun I love it it's one of those things with even just a standard road car like mine you can really just push it as hard as you want its a good outlet too," says Dadej.

When Dadej started racing with the scca he fell in love with the trill of it ever since.

"A couple years ago I started getting into when I was a teenager I loved cars and I didn't know a whole lot about them and I started playing video games mostly Forza and I started teaching myself you know this would be great to actually do and then just by chance I got my car and was like you know what it says I can race this one, so after I found out about it I was like you know I got to go give it a try and it's just nice to challenge yourself,"says Dadej.

The Expo Park race season may becoming to an end but there will still be plenty of activities from the automotive group.

"Yeah it's becoming the end of there season so a lot of racers that have been here before their actually a little bit more in tune with their cars and their just more developed in their racing so they are actually doing a lot better this year," explains Ostperg,
