Winning Is Best Strategy For Performance Tech

Performance Tech Motorsports is entering the final stretch of the 2014 Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Powered by Mazda season with just six races left, including two rounds this weekend at Road America.

Drivers Robert Alon and Craig Duerson are ranked second and fourth in the Drivers' Championship, respectively. But the team remains focused on each of its five drivers' individual success and development, hoping that each can step on the podium before the end of the season in early October.

Team Principal Brent O'Neill believes each individual's achievements make the team successful. Performance Tech is just 14 points behind JDC Motorsports in the Team Championship.

"I don't look at points," O'Neill said. "We go to every race to win with one of our drivers. We want to be on pole. We want to win races, period. The guys do an awesome job. If we can keep giving them good cars, they will be up front battling for wins the rest of the season."

With such a short time left, the team must do everything to stay consistent and clean. Alon, Duerson, Hayden Duerson, Jon Brownson and Joel Janco also must have that same focus. O'Neill can pinpoint one problem that has plagued the team and kept it from this goal.

"We have to cut down on the crashing and getting ourselves in those situations," O'Neill said. "It's also all the small things. But to win championships, we have to be on track and not in the garage fixing the cars."

Performance Tech will send out its fleet for the first practice session at 9:40 a.m. (CT) Friday, Aug. 8. The 30-minute Race 1 will take place 10:40 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 9 with a 45-minute Race 2 to take place at 8:05 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 10.
