Capturing the top spot with a brand new turbo set up is certainly one way to confirm the build was a success. That is precisely what DG-Spec did at Enduro on Buttonwillow Raceway with their Scion tC. Drivers Scott Webb and Dan Gardner delivered a near spotless performance over the 3-hour race in the WERC endurance series, leading the team to a victory in the aggressive E1 class. The win was good for 380 point in the series, 55 points ahead of second place, which finished a full two laps behind.
“I can’t say enough about our partners at Dezod, Garrett, Burns, Goodridge, and AEM. They all provided great pieces and tech support to give us the best chance of an issue-free setup right out of the gates.” said team owner and driver Dan Gardner.
Webb grabbed fast lap of the weekend with a 2:09.xx, building a gap over theE1 Acura, which had started one position behind the tC. The team powered through a radio kit failure, using light flashes to signal affirmative responses. Even with this and later a headlamp failure, Webb and Gardner persevered to maintain a commanding lead and eventually landed the win.
The fifth and sixth rounds of the WERC endurance series will take place at Thunderhill Raceway on August 13-14.
