Pettit Kohn Races Into Action with Sponsorship of Driver Carl Rydquist
Pettit Kohn Ingrassia & Lutz is proud to be a sponsor of racecar driver Carl Rydquist in the 2016 Pirelli Word Challenge at Circuit of the Americas. Carl, who also happens to be husband to Pettit Kohn attorney, Jennifer Weidinger, opened his race season in Austin, TX on a 3.4 mile rolling racetrack.
Carl and the CA Sport Nissan Team arrived in Austin with confidence, preparedness and winning attitudes. All of which paid off as Carl set the fastest lap time of all drivers in race 1 which qualified him for the pole position for race 2. Rydquist came home with a 3rd place podium from a truly nail-biting race 1 and a pole position for race 2. “I almost can’t believe it” says Carl. “I wanted and waited so long to get a shot to race in the Pirelli World Challenge and thanks to the amazing CA Sport Team Nissan and my crew guys from Road Race Engineering I found myself in a fierce three car battle for the Touring Car win. I ended up 2 seconds behind CA Sport regular driver Vesko Kozarov who ended up winning after 40 minutes of hard racing in the other team car [#3], and given this is my first race with the team and at the spectacular Circuit of the Americas that 3rd place pretty much feels like a win!”
Congratulations Carl! Pettit Kohn Ingrassia & Lutz is proud to be associated with you and your team! We look forward to a successful racing season.
CBS Sports will air the races on TV on Thursday March 17th at 8PM ET, with re-air March 19th at 12:30 ET.
