Eddie Sachs Racing Back On Track For Hoosier 100

The Traxxas United States Auto Club (USAC) Silver Crown Championship Series along with Eddie Sachs Racing (ESR) and their driver Jimmy Kite have a quick turnaround as they return to action Friday, May 25th at the Indiana State Fairgrounds for the historic Hoosier 100.

The ESR team came home in 15th place in the USAC Hall of Fame Classic at Lucas Oil Raceway on Saturday night. Kite and the ESR crew struggled initially with injection system issues which they were able to overcome. After qualifying 17th, Kite was able to get the car comfortable and was ready to make his move when tire pressure issues caused the handling to go away. Eventually overheating issues caused the Indy Line Stripe / Brownsburg Signs Beast-Chevy No. 25 to retire after 3/4 mark. Kite remarked afterwards, “We were making progress on the guys in front when we had some tire pressure issues that caused the car to get looser than we wanted. Then the water temp kept rising, so I brought it in rather than damage the engine.” Kite, a native of Stockbridge, GA is keyed up for his first race on the dirt in several years, “I’m excited driving in the Hoosier 100, to be part of an event with such a storied history is pretty special. I’ve driven some dirt races over the last several years, but this is my first Silver Crown race on the dirt since 1997. We learned a lot last week and look forward to putting on a great show for the fans Friday evening.”
