SUNNYVALE, Calif. – CrowdStrike Racing is further broadening its motorsports plans for 2020 with the addition of a full-season TC America entry for accomplished road-racer and engineer Kevin Boehm.
Boehm will drive the No. 9 CrowdStrike Honda Civic Si for the full season in the series’ TCA category, which is for touring cars that largely retain many of their production elements with race suspension, brakes, exhaust, and safety equipment added. The Honda Civic Si race car, built by Honda Performance Development, features a six-speed manual transmission, power steering, and a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
“I am beyond excited to join CrowdStrike Racing for my debut season in TC America,” Boehm said. “On the race track, every second counts, but the work starts long before I get behind the wheel. As an engineer, it's truly inspiring to see the team prioritize the same things that I do — diligence, thoroughness, technology, and data. I look forward to joining the CrowdStrike Racing family and hope to quickly add to their history of success.”
Here is a quick look at the brakes on the Honda Racing/HPD Turn-key Civic Si race car. In this video, I'll show you the front mono-block 6-piston calipers and also show you how easy it is to change the pads.
Fulfilling a lifelong dream, Kevin Boehm of Boehm Racing is making the transition from club/amateur racing to pro racing in 2020, driving the Honda Racing/HPD Turn-key Civic Si race car in TC America.
"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to race in TC America this year," Boehm says. "With the support of long-time partners, new sponsors who believed in the vision, family, and friends, we were able to make the jump from club to pro. I look forward to getting out onto the track with the HPD Turn-key Civic Si this season."
Kevin Boehm of Boehm Racing was invited to debut the Honda Performance Development (HPD) Civic Type R TC at the January 17-19 SRO Motorsports America Winter Invitational event.
At the event, the race car was driven competitively all weekend to gather data, test durability, and showcase the tunability of the Type R TC.
Kevin Boehm of Boehm Racing won the 2019 Road Race Driver of the Year award from the Ohio Valley Region SCCA. This is his second year in a row winning the award and his third time overall.
"I really appreciate the award and the opportunities SCCA gives me and other drivers to do what we love," Boehm says. "Motorsports organizations like the SCCA give us the chance to pursue our dreams on track."
Boehm has been an SCCA member since 2013 and is a four-time SCCA National Championship winner. His most recent victory was in the 2019 SCCA STU class with his 2017 Honda Civic Type R Swapped Si Coupe.
I am excited to announce that I am participating in a new racing series in 2020. More details on the series and the race car to come over the next few weeks. Make sure to subscribe to Kevin Boehm Racing YouTube to get the latest details.

For the fourth year in a row, I joined Team Honda Research West at the grueling 25 Hours of Thunderhill endurance race. We claimed a third-place finish in the E0 class with the no. 18 Honda Civic Type R. It was a difficult event, with incremental weather and fluctuating track conditions.
Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) posted their recap of the 2019 STU National Championship Runoffs event.
Kevin Boehm, of Marysville, Ohio, was the defending Super Touring® Under (STU) National Champion coming into this year’s Runoffs® at VIRginia International Raceway. And earlier this week, despite a small setback, he earned the Tire Rack Pole Award and led a 25-car field to the start.
While Boehm, driving the No. 90 HPD/Carbotech/Red Line Oil Honda Civic, bobbled a bit at the start of Saturday’s 15-lap race around VIR’s 18-turn, 3.27-mile circuit, he quickly recovered and marched away to a 25-second victory. This is Boehm’s second consecutive National Championship in the STU class, and fourth Championship overall.
“I think this is the first year everything went to plan,” said Boehm, who also set a new STU lap record during the race. “I expected Elivan to get a better start since his car is so light and so good. But then I went to work from there. This was an absolute perfect car for this track.”

There are so many emotions that happen when winning a big race. It may not look like much here, but I was overwhelmed with joy, relief, thankfulness, and excitement all at the same time.

Lap one of the 2019 SCCA National Championship race was not easy. The rear tires weren't warmed up, yet. Those who watched the race said it didn't look like much from the outside, but the in-car video shows how close I was to the edge.
To make a car fast on track, it needs to be easy to drive. That's because a car that's easy to drive at the limit allows you to spend more time getting the maximum out of the car. Video taken during the 2019 SCCA STU National Championship Race at Virginia International Raceway.
Check out this rooftop view of Virginia International Raceway (VIR) from my Civic Type R race car during the 2019 SCCA National Championship Runoffs. VIR is one of the most unique tracks in the US. With its combination of high speed turns and elevation changes, it is a real challenge to go fast.
