DSE “Equipped” Camaro Wins the Street Machine Class and Kyle Tucker Keeps a Tight Grasp of the Pro Class Points Lead After a 2nd Place in Fort Worth

Mooresville, NC – The Goodguys 23rd Lone Star Nationals went off without a hitch this past weekend. Three days of beautiful weather made it the perfect weekend for autocrossing, a cruise along the high banks of Texas Motor Speedway and much more.

Autocrossing started early Friday morning with some cooler temps for early fall in Texas. Kyle and the DSE 1970 Camaro Test Car came out firing and by lunchtime had the top Pro Class time with a 52.513. When not autocrossing, Kyle was keeping the BFGoodrich Rival S tires nice and warm underneath come custom tire warmers that were made specifically for the DSE 1970 Camaro Test Car. The PRO class and Street Machine classes saw fierce and close competition all weekend. Kyle lead all day on Friday until Robbie Unser put down a great lap near the end of the day and took over the lead.  Saturday morning Kyle regained the lead and held on to it until mid-day on Saturday when Mike Dusold ran a lap that no one else could catch. With Kyle’s 2nd place finish he kept a hold of his overall Pro Class points lead. The Street Machine class was also highly competitive and in the end Derrick Torres was the winner with his DSE Equipped, Dusold built 1968 Camaro and punched his ticket to the Goodguys Autocross Finals in Scottsdale in November. Jakey Sampson was there on Sunday representing DSE with her 5th Gen DSE “Equipped” Camaro.

This was another great event for the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association. The Detroit Speed Team will now shift gears as Kyle prepares for the Optima “Search for the Ultimate Street Car” event in Fontana. This is the last event before the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational in Las Vegas Nov. 7th – 8th.

Goodguys Fort Worth Highlights:

  • Kyle finished in 2nd place in the Pro Class and added to his overall Pro Class points lead
  • Mike Dusold won the Pro Class in his 1967 Camaro
  • Derrick Torres won the Street Machine Class in his DSE “Equipped” 1968 Camaro and qualified for the finals
