2016 The Speed Ring Powered by HKS
Autoclub Speedway (Fontana, CA)

August 21, 2016

From HKS’ event description:
“The action-packed event will include a car show as well as time attack event. Competitors of the time attack will compete on the 2.8 mile Auto Club Speedway road course with over $10,000 in prize money up for grabs. We will have our professional driver, Nob Taniguchi, piloting our HKS GT1000 R35 GTR in the unlimited R35 class as well. Think you have a car that can take us on? Beat us at our own game, and you could win a $20,000 bonus award for laying down the fastest time in the unlimited R35 class!”
This event was quite interesting considering there was a $20,000 cash bonus.  And on this day, the team at LYFE Motorsport secured the win and took home this humongous prize.  I have shot a lot of events, but never have I seen such a large cash prize being presented to a winning team before.
