03/09/2008 - Eric's Post-Race Report from New Jersey Grand-Am Race

New Jersey

Tracy W. Krohn, team owner/driver, No. 75 Krohn Racing Pontiac Lola:

“The start was very predictable. The first lap somebody got booted off and we had a massive amount of debris on the track. We drove around for a little while and had the restart. The car just picked up so much debris on the tires. It was just unbelievable. It took four or five laps before I could get it off. I scrubbed the tires thoroughly before we started the race. It was just unfortunate because it really took a long time to get it back. Fortunately Eric was able to come back out and just did a great job. There were lots of dust and lots of debris on the track today. So I'm glad we got out of here today without any serious carnage and we're glad we got out of it with a Top 10 finish. That was really good.”

Eric van de Poele, driver, No. 75 Krohn Racing Pontiac Lola:

“We knew it was going to be tough with all the traffic and in fact it was very difficult with the dust on the track as well. When we had to pass a GT car, it was really a challenge because the tires picked up a lot of dust and it was very difficult. It was especially tough after a restart because the pace car was so slow and you couldn't keep the tires clean and not get pick up. Except that, I had one spin because I tried to pass a GT and he kept me in the dust and I couldn't get back on the line and I spun on the dust on the track. I'm still eating that dirt at this moment. Afterwards, the car was perfect with the new tires on and we could rejoin the field and try to improve our position, which I did. Two laps from the end the 01 passed me and I re-passed him on the last lap. It was a good fight, very nice.”
