Race 4 - 2021

Aeon Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • Felix Mattherson Jr. gets himself into hot water with a rant against entitled fans interrupting him in airports. It's not endeared him to many, but people seem to understand his frustration.
  • Gunther Heindrickson has a great week. "Conditions were perfect, the car was runnin' great--everything just came together today."
  • Remy LuRue also has a superb result and is happy to talk up her front row partner Toben Shearshanks. "Guys like him make this sport great, and we're looking forward to runnin' up against him this week."
  • Chad Blackstone hires in a new engine analyst and it seems to pay off - he will start with a boost this week.
  • Conor Westfall makes a cameo appearance in a small noir movie, released coinciding with race week.
  • Lem Tables is very pleased with the work of his crew chief. "He made some changes, and things got better toward the end. I think we got it figured out now."
