Koenig Racing- in the Total Chaos/Goodyear sponsored Toyota Tacoma – scored BIG at the annual VORRA Fallon Nevada 250 Night Race: First in class, third overall – plus Koenig Racing is now overall points leader!
According to team owner Mike Koenig, “We only slowed down for thick dust and one fueling stop”. Otherwise it was pedal to the metal with consistent, flawless racing. Four of their six laps timed within a minute of each other.
Mike started the race three minutes behind the leader. By Check Point One he had cut that lead in half and continued gaining ground. At the end of lap three the Koenig pit crew performed a lightening fast driver change putting Troy Robinson into the driver’s seat and ahead of the V8-powered field. Getting in with Troy was co-driver and expert rally navigator Tina Brink. Using rally pace notes mapped out on earlier preruns, Tina kept Troy moving at top speed calling out turn after turn well before they showed up in the driving lights.
As usual, the Total Chaos suspension performed perfectly. The Team’s Goodyear tires had already completed four races, but they ended the Fallon bash ready for more. “With the Goodyears”, said Mike, “We were able to increase our speed through Fallon’s long sandy sections like never before.”
We want to thank Goodyear, Total Chaos, Currie, Desert People Films, Doug Thorley, Off Road Warehouse, King Shocks and all the members of Koenig Racing. See you at the next race!
