Chin members won the ChumpCar 25Hours 25Minutes, 25Seconds race (dubbed the Longest Race in the World) in the Duct Tape Motorsports E30 BMW 318is.
Drivers included Chin Instructors Scott Barton, Anthony Magagnoli, and Mike Skeen along with BMWCCA Club Racers Tim Smith, Ryan Shuster, and Simon Hunter.
Crew members where Nate Thulin, Mike Fitch, Denny Barker, and Anna Barton.

We had an engine failure on Friday during testing and did a motor swap in 3 hours and was back on track to finish up testing. Car ran great with no issues other than when we got hit twice. With a reliable car and that driver lineup, we were able to keep a confortable lead for most of the race. We were up by over 10 laps midway through the race before we got hit and had to repair our exhaust which cost us 12 laps. We then worked our way back up and won by 7 laps.
Mike Skeen had the fastest laptime (FTD) with a 1:20.534 in the Duct Tape Motorsports E30 318is.

The 3 hour successful engine swap is worthy of a trophy in and of itself. :) Great job!

...and the Red Reck is one of the most memorable ugly cars of all time!

Drive Well, The management
