Braselton, GA – Capaldi Racing traveled to Road Atlanta for the Pirelli World Challenge season finale looking to end the bad luck streak that plagued them for the past two races at Infineon Raceway and Laguna Sega. Road Atlanta is the home track for team driver, Eric Foss, and Eric has a lot of experience there. Needless to say, the team was hopeful going into practice.

Eric put his experience to good use in both practice sessions and came back with the fastest time for both sessions, following which the team made adjustments to the car for qualifying. During qualifying, Eric continued using his knowledge of the track and put the #73 Traxxas/St. Jude’s/SPX Ford Mustang FR500S on the GTS pole for the 60-minute race, his second pole of the season. When the green flag dropped, Eric charged into the lead and never looked back. He led the race flag to flag to take his second win of the season.

“What a great way to end the season,” said Eric. “I used to instruct at the Panoz School here (at Road Atlanta) and I’ve logged thousands of laps here. After practice, we made a couple changes and they really paid off. The team did an awesome job all week, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. This year is the first time I’ve driven a Mustang and it’s been a blast. It was an honor to race with Traxxas and SPX to raise money for St. Jude’s.”
Eric went into Road Atlanta 4th in GTS points and because of his strong performance, he moved up two positions, ending the season 2nd in the GTS Championship. Tune into Versus on Saturday, October 29 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time for coverage from Road Atlanta.
