Mattioli Cousins Join Dewey and Vultaggio to Deliver Stellar Podium Run at Virginia International Raceway
Nov 3, 2008 - updated Nov 3rd, 2008 7:49pm

Danville, VA. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 3, 2008

Cadence Motorsports finished 3rd in class, and 6th overall, in the sixth annual SCCA "Charge of the Headlight Brigade", a 13 hour endurance race this weekend at Virginia International Raceway. The Cadence Pocono Raceway /Cold Fire sponsored Lexus IS-300 had an incident free run throughout the event and completed 315 laps to put team drivers Frank Vultaggio of Apalachin, NY, Shawn Dewey of Towns End, Delaware and Mattioli cousins, Nick Igdalsky and Chase Mattioli of Long Pond, Pennsylvania, and on the class podium. The Mattioli cousins are the grandsons of Pocono Raceway's Doctor Joe & Rose Mattioli.

Qualifying isn't critical for long distance races, so the team focused on race setup and Dewey qualified 6th in class and 14th overall for Saturday's race start. Dewey was able to move swiftly into the top ten, and then settled into the top five for his opening stint in the car. The team's driver rotation would be Dewey, Igdalsky, Mattioali and Vultaggio, and each driver gave driving exhibitions while illustrating the importance of smooth, level headed driving as the key to success in long endurance races.

The Lexus IS-300 handled great throughout the day, but an overly conservative engine management set up would force the team to stop for fuel every hour while competitors were able to run as long as a half hour longer between their fuel stops. The additional pit stops were overcome by flawless pit work by the team throughout the event and one "lucky dog" waive by during one of only two full course cautions on the day.

"I was very impressed by all of the team drivers. Shawn has a lot of endurance racing experience, and typically when we bring drivers on board with sprint race experience, we have to coach them on saving the equipment," said Ken Grammer owner of Cadence Motorsports. "But Nick, Chase and Frank did an outstanding job of racing hard while conserving the car for a hard charge in the final three hours of the race. I can't tell you how impressed I am with each of these drivers. Not one of them put a wheel wrong all day!"

Cadence would like to thank team sponsor Fire Freeze, makers of Cold Fire fire suppression systems and Motor Max engine cooling formula, for their support of our team and their continued focus on fire safety. We also want to acknowledge the support of Pocono Raceway, who proudly sponsored Mattioli and Igdalsky for this event.

The next event for Cadence Motorsports will be the National Auto Sport Association "Santa's Toy Run" Eight Hour Endurance event at Road Atlanta on December 5-7, 2008.
