Once again, Katch Environmental is the primary sponsor of Team Pantera Racing.  They were the primary sponsor for the team in 2014 and Team Pantera Racing is happy to have them aboard again this year; looking forward to their sponsorship and participation as crew.

For this year's Sandhill's Open Road Challenge, Team Pantera Racing is fielding four Panteras:

  • Bob Radefeld
  • Frank Cirrincione
  • Mark Skwarek
  • Bud Hower

2015 SORC Team

The team arrived safe and sound but ended up having to do a few little things before being completely race ready; however, Mark Skwarek arrived with a fresh engine that he became very pleased with after his loup-to-loup run.

  • First run - 161 MPH
  • Second run 161.7 MPH with 7,000 RPM shift point
  • Third run abandoned due to air in the clutch hydraulics
  • Car ran straight and true at 161 MPH

Bud Hower's ZF began to fail going into reverse, second and fourth prior to the parade, but with the help of Kirk Evans and Lloyd Butfoy, they got the problem solved and the car now shifts well.  Frank and Bob's car are all ready to go.  We should have more to report from the SORC TPR team later this weekend.
