A quick "PEAK" into our Motorsports involvement and the results of related races!



Monday, April 29, 2024: Hopes of a perfect weekend for John Force fell short in the final round of Sunday’s NHRA 4-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway. One week before his 75th birthday, the ageless Force recorded the quickest elapsed time of his career (3.820 seconds), the 10th-quickest run in NHRA Funny Car history and the run gave the 16-time champion the 167th number one qualifying spot of his career.


Force motored through Sunday’s first two rounds of quad eliminations. He defeated Chad Green and John Smith in the opening quad, then Alexis DeJoria and Cruz Pedregon in the second quad, but a tough start in the final round kept Force out of the winner’s circle for the second time this season.


In the 268th final round appearance of his career, Force finished fourth behind winner Matt Hagan, runner-up Dan Wilkerson and third-place finisher J.R. Todd. John Force remains fifth in the points standings heading into the race in Joliet race in 3 weeks.

In Top Fuel, after a strong first round quad run (3.734 seconds at 335.82 mph), Brittany Force moved into the semifinals, but was unable to advance to the final round. The younger Force had the fastest speed of her semifinal quad (336.57 mph), but her elapsed time (3.729 seconds) fell a bit short. Force leaves Charlotte ninth in the Top Fuel points standings.


After starting in the number three position in Funny Car, Austin Prock lost traction and was eliminated in his first-round quad with a run of 4.609 seconds at just 225.86 mph. Even with the loss, Prock remains the points leader in Funny Car.


The NHRA stars will return to the Route 66 Nationals Presented by PEAK Performance, May 17-19th at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois.

The audience in the province of La Pampa experienced a special race last weekend. Toay witnessed 48 participants of the highest caliber of motorsport at a national level, with a public loaded with high expectations.

The superb work performed by Juliàn Santero's mechanics brought about the best time recorded in their category, completing a tire change in 6 seconds. 

Starting from the 38th position, our #68 BlueDEF Turismo Carretera driver, Juliàn Santero achieved a historic performance and rebounded from disaster. To begin the race, a rival mistook the brake pedal with the clutch, hitting Santero in the back of his racecar, forcing him to spin out and dropping him back to the 44th position. Santero's perseverance and dedication showed, as he worked his way back to finish the race in 16th place.

With 4 of the 15 races completed this season, Santero continues his fight for the TC 2024 Championship in 6th place with 106.5 points.

At the conclusion of the 30-lap race, the podium was taken by Mariano Werner, while second and third place were earned by Diego Ciantini and Mauricio Lambiris. The next race will take place on May 12th at the Termas de Río Hondo Race Track, Santiago del Estero.
