Scratchin’ Faster

Paul Costas has done it again.

Two more Whelen US Time Trial Championship days at Texas World Speedway, two more wins, two more track records. He makes it look easy, especially considering that Scratcher is actually a simple, conservative, low budget track day car that is up against much more modern, sophisticated, and expensive machines. A big part of Scratcher’s performance is Paul’s driving skill and experience at TWS. The rest is a result of spending money on only the high-payoff performance items, clear thinking, and logical development. Paul and I have been educating each other for decades on our respective specialties, so it is especially gratifying to see him perform well on the race track.

This achievement has extended Paul’s win streak in Scratcher to a perfect 5 for 5: Five NARRA events, five TTU wins, five TWS track records.

I am sure that there will be many more opportunities to highlight Paul’s racing accomplishments as Scratcher’s development continues. For now, celebrating this win is great fun. Congrats to Witchdoctor Motorsports!
