Continued Excellence for SIR

Billings, Montana and Casper, Wyoming-Sudden Impact Racing’s Amsoil Shock Therapy and Amsoil Excaliber wrapped up a two-week road trip with plenty of fans screaming for the truck and a couple more trophies to add to the case at the shop. It has simply been a dream summer for the team wins-wise, as Amsoil Shock Therapy’s wins triple its losses, and Amsoil Excaliber’s steady improvement with Kevin Koszala behind the wheel has lead to the team being a great one-two punch at any show, anytime.

“Having Kevin driving Amsoil Excaliber really is a great addition to Sudden Impact Racing,” said Amsoil Shock Therapy’s Jon Zimmer. “It’s important for us to be a threat anywhere we go, and Kevin has already improved by leaps and bounds since he got here.”

Koszala showed that improvement in Billings, beating Bigfoot in racing. Amsoil Shock Therapy took over from there, with a final round racing appearance and then a freestyle for the ages, even in the tight confines of the arena in Billings. After the complete performance and freestyle victory for Amsoil Shock Therapy, it was on to Casper, where more success awaited the team.

Sometimes when obstacles get in the way, the best thing a driver can do is to simply push through them. The mental obstacle for Zimmer and Amsoil Shock Therapy was the fact that Amsoil Excaliber was out of action early due to breakage; the physical was the full arenacross track that gave the truck little space to work with in freestyle, as well as the elevation (5000 feet above sea level), which takes a toll on the engines. After another final-round appearance in racing, Amsoil Shock Therapy burned it down in freestyle and had no breakage to boot.

“It’s been a great couple of weeks; we’ve been busy,” said Zimmer. “The thing I’m most proud of is how little breakage we’ve suffered all summer. Keeping a truck together is not easy, but I’m proud of everyone on the team.”

Indeed, there’s a lot to be proud of. For now, the team will be making preparations for the coming winter season. Stay tuned for updates!
