Quine Racing Finishes 11th at Mid-Ohio
August 17, 2015
MEDINA, OH—August 17, 2015 –Aaron Quine finished 11th in the Next Dimension 100 TransAm race presented by First Energy at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on August 14. The race was the debut for the Quine Racing/SpillFix TA2 Camaro, and Quine was pleased with the results for the first time out in the new car.
“We always want to win, but we were really happy to finish a 75-minute race in the top third of the field the first time out in a newly built car,” said Quine. “We didn’t have any power steering from the get-go, but I sucked it up and finished the race. “
In addition to power steering issues, Quince’s number 69 Camaro experienced an electrical short with about 10 laps to go, just as he had closed the gap on the three cars in front of him and was ready to make some passes. “I saw smoke from the dash, but I told the crew on the radio that I wasn't pulling the fire pin until I saw flames,” laughed Quine. “The fuel pump was cutting on and off, which caused the car to sputter. My crew said to keep it going and try to finish the race, even if it meant crossing the finish line at five miles per hour.”
Quine Racing’s new primary sponsor, SpillFix, made an equally impressive debut at Mid-Ohio, with an array of products on display and a company contingent from several states and Australia. SpillFix chairman Joe Davids traveled to Mid-Ohio from Sydney to attend his first-ever race and was impressed with what he saw.
“I loved it,” said Davids. “It was even better than I thought it was going to be, especially because we were involved with a car. That made it exciting. I hope to be at the race at VIR with my kids. My son is 12 years old and loves cars and racing. Since he couldn’t be here, I Face-Timed with him from the track.”
“We had an unreal crowd at our trailer on race day,” said Quine. “It was great to have so many fans show up and for SpillFix, First Energy, ECC Motorsports and the rest of our sponsors to get so much exposure. My crew has already torn the car apart and found the cause of our fuel and power steering issues. We’re working hard on getting this orange beast to the front of the grid.”
