Mount Victorious in Season Finale
Millville, NJ – The 2018 Atlantic Championship Series season came to an exciting close on Sunday afternoon at New Jersey Motorsports Park as Blake Mount took his second career victory for K-Hill Motorsports, driving flag-to-flag for the win in round 14 in an all-green flag race. Mount beat teammate Bruce Hamilton to the checkered flag while Rich Zober finished third.
“It was a great race. All I had to do was essentially manage the pace,” said Mount, standing in Thunderbolt’s victory circle on Sunday afternoon.
Hamilton said: “If I had maybe another 30 laps, I might have challenged him. It was a great race and the car ran well; I think we did good for the weekend. The car and engine combination are a winner.”
Zober added: “I couldn’t get up to speed right away; it took a while and everyone checked out. It was a good weekend and I’d like to thank the Series.”
The victory cemented Mount’s second place in the points chase behind teammate and Champion Baltazar Leguizamon.
