Long Beach, California (21 April 2013)— Dane Moxlow, pilot of the #7 Trenton Forging/CP Carrillo/Huntington Bank/Bard’s Beer Ford Mustang Boss 302s, finished 13th in round three of the Pirelli World Challenge GTS series today despite multiple mechanical issues. After two difficult practice sessions due to red and yellow flags limiting seat time on the technical street course, Moxlow entered the early-morning qualifying session with hopes of a clean flyer lap to position him for success during the race later in the day. Unfortunately, an ABS issue, dreaded by drivers, known as a high and hard pedal caused the front end of the #7 Mustang to pile into the tires in turn 1.
“I really thought the car was done for the day when I hit that wall, but I’ve got a solid crew behind me and it was because of them that I was on the grid for the start of the race. Despite a bent frame and an issue with the gearbox that affected my ability to shift, I was able to finish the race. We are happy with the results. We’ve come a long way, but we’re far from complacent,” says Moxlow. “It’s got to go up from here.”
Watch the race when it airs on NBC Sports on May 5th at 2p.m. EST. Rounds 4 and 5 of the Pirelli World Challenge series will take place the weekend of May 17th in the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
