Detroit Speed Had a Great Weekend at the Motor State Challenge

http://goo.gl/qP7xHq The Detroit Speed crew and a bundle of Detroit Speed “Equipped” cars took over the 6th annual Motor State Challenge this past weekend at Gingerman Raceway and came back with plenty of hardware to show for it. The event was a huge success with fantastic weather and plenty of cars to keep the road course and autocross track filled up throughout the weekend. Thursday was the cruise through the countryside that finished up at the scenic Riverfront Park in Niles, MI. Thursday evening was a great chance to relax and see old friends and meet new ones. There was a car show, a cookout, and it all concluded with a concert in the park Thursday night. Friday was a full day of road course racing at Gingerman Raceway followed by the autocross event on Saturday that was held at Tire Rack in South Bend, IN.

The Detroit Speed team will now head back to the shop to give the test cars a little R&R before they hit the road again for the next event.
