WINNER – Michael Munley Opens the 2021 Season Strong at Sebring International Raceway
Michael started the defense of his V8RRS 2020 GTA Championship this weekend at Sebring International Raceway, Florida with a win in GTA class and an overall second in a strong 29 car field. On Saturday Michael qualified the #29 Gutterman Services/Overbagh Motor Racing P1 in GTA and P4 overall putting him on the second row for the start of Sunday’s first of two races. Tough side-by-side, very clean professional racing was the highlight of the first race. Michael battled head-to-head with cars in his class and in higher level classes with outstanding results. Michael showed not only can he handle the bumps of America’s oldest racetrack that the pros call the most difficult track in the world, but he can bring home the win.
Sunday’s second race was not as kind; racing can be a cruel, fickle mistress. With Michael in the lead in GTA and battling for third overall his car lost power six laps into the race and he was forced to retire. Although disappointed with the result of the second race, Michael was happy with his strong performance and looks forward to new opportunities.
Thanks to car owner Hoyt Overbagh, Crew Chief Steve Little, Car Chief Donnie Brannon for a fast hot rod. Special thanks to Chris Pauly and Gutterman Service for his ever-present support. Thanks to all of you who follow Michael and support him with prayers and well wishes, you’ll never know how much that means. Keep following Michael Munley Motorsports for Michael’s race schedule as the season and opportunities develop.
