NEWS FLASH: Francis Jr. Makes It Two in a Row at VIR

Ernie Francis Jr. is now a three-time race winner in FR Americas after a stellar drive to end the Andy Scriven Memorial Race Weekend at VIRginia International Raceway. 

Francis Jr., No. 98 Future Star Racing, Wings & Wheels Foundation, made it two in a row fending off Championship-leader Kyffin Simpson and Varun Choksey who came home second and third respectively. 

Simpson, No. 21 Simpson Race Products/GoPro/Spy Optic, was ever so close to clinching the 2021 FR Americas Championship, but will have to wait until Circuit of the Americas to pop the bottles of sparkling grape juice. 

Choksey, No. 19 ADR/Melonseed, captured his fourth podium of the season and also earned the Omologato Perfectly Timed Move of the Race bespoke timepiece. 

Full results from the entire weekend are online.

Race replays will be available on the FR Americas Championship YouTube channel in October. 

Next up for the FR Americas Championship is the season finale at Circuit of the Americas for the Austin SpeedTour on November 5-7. Buy your tickets now!
