PASCARELLA PERFECT IN FORMULA PACIFIC
Dunlop’s Joey Pascarella won the Formula Pacific in AFM racing at Thunderhill Raceway, one of seven victories for Dunlop riders over the June 20-21 weekend.
Pascarella, who has won all four Formula Pacific races on the AFM circuit this year, posted a best lap of 1:47.510, nearly a full second faster than the next best racer. Pascarella also claimed first place in the Open GP.
Cory Call, who placed second to Pascarella in the Formula Pacific, earned seven podium finishes on the weekend with four first places and three second places, while Joy Higa won the AFemme race.
Pascarella’s dominance in the Formula Pacific this season started with a Track Record 1:44.6 during Round 1 racing at Buttonwillow in late March. In Round 2 he posted a lap time nearly two seconds faster than any other rider, with a fastest lap of 1:38.4 over the 10-lap race, before edging Call in a tight finish at Thunderhill in Round 3 on May 30-31.
AFM racing returns September 5-6 from Sonoma, with the fifth leg of the 2015 season.
