Hankook driver Grunewald wins at Wall Speedway
The sold out event with over 8000 spectators in attendance saw Grunewald
qualify high in the top 5 in his Hankook Chevy Camaro, eventually
battling Ryan Tuerck in the Gardella Racing Camaro in the top four. The
top four Camaro vs. Camaro match-up ended with Tuerck hitting the wall
and Grunewald and the Hankook Chevy Camaro advancing to the finals.
The final battle pitted Grunewald in his Camaro against Formula Drift
points leader Justin Pawlak in his Ford Mustang for an American muscle
car clash. The race was tight, but Grunewald and the Hankook Chevy
Camaro were able to edge out Pawlak, landing Grunewald a first place
"I'm really happy for the team," stated Grunewald. "This speedway
requires a lot of tire smoke and vehicle control. My Hankook Ventus
R-S3's provided the edge I needed to win this weekend."
Hankook's Ventus R-S3 is an Extreme Performance Summer tire developed
for serious sports car, sports coupe and performance sedan enthusiasts
looking for race tire-like traction on the street or for use in
autocross, drifting or track events. Grunewald's win puts him in sixth
place with 272 points in the overall Formula Drift standings.
