No one wins a national championship and two U.S. Nationals titles without perseverance, so it wasn’t a big shock when Iggie Boicesco earned national event win No. 9 in Epping in Super Gas. Boicesco and his daughter, Amanda, who races in Super Comp, have endured a tough summer that has included three broken engines. That didn’t prevent the 2006 world champion from earning the win in his ATI-backed Corvette roadster. Boicesco moved into the top 10 after his latest win, was solid throughout eliminations, including a .001-light in round two and a 9.907 pass in the semifinals, and was at his best in the final round with a perfect 9.900 that his opponent, Canadian John McClean, could not match
