David Jurca Podiums in Formula Dodge Debut

Formula DodgeOn the weekend of February 14-16, David Jurca traveled to Sebring, Florida to compete in a one off Formula Dodge regional race weekend. The event was larger than usuall as it was a West meets the South race weekend.

Jurca's focus for the weekend was to gain more experience in the unfamiliar Formula Dodge racecars. With the only prior experience being a handful of practice laps, Jurca was excited to be able to compete in an actual race weekend. The race would also serve as preparation for the first round of the Formula Dodge National Championship held in Sebring, Florida.

For Jurca's first ever qualifying session, he was able to qualify an impressive third place. Pole position was the Western Championship points leader and second position was the Southern Championship points leader.

In the first of two races, David got off to a poor start dropping to fifth at the green flag. He eventually worked his way up to second place by the end of the race. Quite impressive for the young rookie. In the second race, Jurca had an uneventful run to third place to end his weekend with two podium finishes in his debut. After the race Jurca said, "I am beginning to feel more and more confident in the Formula Dodge racecars. It's a bit different than racing karts, but I am certain that with more experience, I will be up front in no time."

Stay tuned for a report on Jurca's next race March 13-15th in Sebring, Florida in conjunction with the American LeMans 12 hours of Sebring.
