For Round 3, #GRIDLIFE Midwest Festival returned to Gingerman Raceway for year 6 of what has become an icon on the race calendar. Nearly every GoldPass holder opted to make the trip to southwest Michigan to take part in one of the largest time attack fields in North America. Tightening the car counts from years past had no effect on the unbelievable display of driving talent in both wet and dry conditions throughout the weekend. While there was great driving among all classes, Shawn Krebsbach put the FCP Euro Street Modified class on notice by throwing down a monster lap during the Heat 1 of the weekend. That time was both a new class record, and untouchable by anyone in the class for the rest of the weekend. However, the parity of performance among the cars on the class podiums was astounding. All of the drivers at the pointy end of the Time Attack field are pushing the limits of what is possible within the class. Evos and Corvettes reigned supreme at the top of all class podiums from this weekend. Evos came out ahead 3-2, which shouldn’t surprise anyone either. The GRIDLIFE staff is now looking to see an encore from many of these drivers at Autobahn Country Club in the coming weeks to see this caliber of competition again.
