Aquin's Newest National Champion . . . Way To Go DAWG!
From www.scca.com . . .
ALTON, Va. (October 11, 2019) – In a wild race with a wild finish, Rhett Barkau from Freeport, Illinois drove the Barkau Automotive/JH Barkau & Sons SCCA FE2 Mazda to the Formula Enterprises 2 (FE2) SCCA Championship Runoffs® win. Barkau took an early lead and held a gap until lapped traffic bunched up the leaders and created a heated battle with close racing, some of the contact kind.
“I was behind him and I saw he was getting slick through a lot of the corners so I knew I had to just drive a safe race and wait for his one mess up where I could take advantage of him and that’s what happened,” said Barkau. “I drafted him down the back straight and went side-by-side through Roller Coaster and then I dived inside in 16, and at Hog Pen I pulled out in front.”
