Derek Thorn scores his fifth straight Late Model win on AP Racing Radi-CALs!07.02.2021
Derek Thorn recently showed why he remains at the top of the leader board in the Asphalt Late Model SRL Southwest Tour 2021. Derek ran wheel-to-wheel with Buddy Shepard for 45 laps, finally securing the lead on lap 62. If you've ever seen one of these races, these guys don't go easy. It's a full-throttle torture test with lots of contact while chasing the win. These drivers don't give up and need their equipment to do the same. Derek has been relying on the latest iteration of AP Racing's Radi-CAL caliper technology to secure five victories in a row under these grueling conditions. Check out his post-race comments below. Essex and AP Racing would like to congratulate Derek and his entire team on this fantastic win streak!
"This was our 5th win a row in the SRL Southwest Tour in 21’, we won 8 of 9 in 20’. We led 450 combined laps at the 2020 All American 400 and Snowball Derby. The New AP calipers and the bedded rotors have works flawlessly every step of the way. We’ve run from 1/4 miles to 5/8ths and have had to put them to the test getting up through the field. They’ve been bulletproof and have always been there when it counts. We have 8 cars in the shop all equipped with the best that AP has to offer and have been more then happy with the reliability and performance every time we hit the track."
