Team Fischle Claims Crucial K&N Series Win

Team Fischle 6 27 2018

Fontana, CA (June 27, 2018) – Team Fischle would earn a clutch victory in round 5 of the K&N 8.90 series at Auto Club Dragway to stay in contention for the championship with one round to go.

The duo of Matt and Brian Fischle made it a family affair as both drivers would outrace the other 21 competitors to make it an all-Fischle final round. Both Team Fischle cars would be evenly matched but Matt would pilot his Lucas Oil dragster to a time of 8.931 seconds to Brian's 8.932 elapsed time to take the narrow win. With both cars running nearly identical times, the starting line was where the race would be determined. Matt was able to get the edge with a .022 reaction time to Brian's .029 light. "That was as close as it gets!" said Matt. "Brian was crushing it on the lights all day so I was lucky to be able to pull out the win."

While Brian came up short, he was satisfied with the result. "Of course we wanted to put the Lucas Oil Racing TV dragster in victory lane but as long as one of us wins, it's a good day," said Brian. "Fortunately the ladder worked out to where we didn't meet until the final to guarantee a win for the team."

Right off the bat both drivers knew they were in good shape after running a perfect 8.900 in their very first run of the day. "We were dialed in off the trailer and both cars ran flawless," said Matt. "I feel like everything just fell into place today. Days like these don't come around very often so when they do, you have to take advantage and we did."

With the result, Matt heads into the season finale second in points and in solid position to claim the inaugural K&N 8.90 series championship. "We really needed that win after a slow start to the season," said Matt. "For a while the title seemed like a long shot but now we're only a couple of rounds behind and we have a realistic chance at the championship."

The final round of the K&N 8.90 series will be held at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, California on September 8-9.
