Jeff Kiesel in the 2014 KFR / RKR Avon Tire / Racing Beat rotary-powered Turbo Sprite brings home his 8th consecutive Title in Lincoln Nebraska at the September SCCA Solo National Championships. SCCA Solo National Championships (9/3-9/6) Kiesel crushed the 18 car E Modified field yet again earning his 7th straight National Championship in E Modified and his 8th straight National Championship win (longest active streak). Kiesel took the win by 6.048 seconds over his co-driver in the same car. Kiesel’s wife Shawn Kiesel crushed the E Modified Ladies class by 11.139 seconds earning her 5th E Modified Championship and 6th Overall Championship.
After the event Kiesel elaborated on his success this year, “The car has never handled so well, we have worked on balance all year long and we are very happy with the set up. This year we switched to Avon tires and I have never been happier with the car. We finally have a tire with multiple compounds to choose from to ensure great grip in all conditions. Along with set up and tires we worked on the new bodywork and did some more aero development with the help of Rennie Clayton of Dauntless Racing. It was a good thing we made the car handle so well as we ended up having electrical issues which pulled the power output of the motor down and only allowed me to take 2 runs per day skipping my last run each day. We have some development plans in the off season and look forward to what the new year will bring.”
