The last time Boris Said ran a full season in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, he helped Turner Motorsport win the 2006 Grand Sport championship.
Said will return to a full-time GS ride with the team, joining Michael Marsal in the No. 97 BMW M3 – and team owner Will Turner has high expectations.
“I think this is one of our strongest lineups ever,” Turner said. “The last time Boris ran GS for us full time we won the championship. Pairing him with Mike Marsal, we’re looking for another championship.”

Taking the ever popular program that began at K1 Speed in Anaheim and bringing it to the Southwests best indoor kart racing facility has grown as rapidly as the facility itself as the place to go if you want to get into kart racing.
This past Tuesday was no exception with a number of younger drivers on hand to battle it out for that top podium spot. The groups were split by height and age range with the younger drivers (between 4 foot and 4 foot 10″) taking to the smaller kid karts for the first round of qualifying. The younger drivers have quickly picked up on where the fast lines are and it has made for some tight racing. Alexander Lynch would take the pole position posting a fast lap of 33.092 seconds to set the field. The taller drivers would be in the adult karts (4′-10″ and up) would be out on track next for their qualifying round. Another fast paced group of drivers would see Cahlei Schildts taking the pole and setting the field with a 32.439 second lap.
Main event rounds would be even more exciting with the Junior group on track first with Alexander leading the field into turn one. He would stay out in front for the duration of the race going wire to wire for the win. Second place qualifier Ryan Soper would follow suit, staying in second place and holding off the rest of the field to take the second podium spot. Third place qualifier Jarret Anderson wasn’t so lucky, has he dropped back a few positions and wasn’t able to recover. The would create a battle between a number of drivers with Parker Dahlgren and Kelly Kazmierczak making their way through the field. They both got around Evan McCamman, placing Parker on the final podium spot in third and Kelly in fourth respectfully.
The Teen drivers would close out the nights main events with Cahlei on pole and leading the field into turn one. Second place qualifier Drew Anderson would find his was around Cahlei to take over the lead and hold off the field to take the win. Cahlei would remain in second place for the remainder of the race to finish out the night. Third place qualifier Chris Tabares would drop back giving up positions to a number of drivers which left the door open to sixth place qualifier Austin Miller who moved up into third to round out the top three on the podium.
