ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (September 1, 2021) – CrowdStrike Racing returned to SRO Motorsports America sports car competition in full at Road America over the weekend with entries in two categories. The three-day event marked the beginning of the second half for SRO America’s season, and it featured a heavy CrowdStrike feel with an additional level of sponsorship.
As Official Internet and Cloud Security Partner of SRO Motorsports America, CrowdStrike uses its presence in racing to showcase its suite of cybersecurity tools to not just those within the paddock and inside race circuits like Road America but also on a global platform with televised events on CBS Sports Network and streamed live on SRO Motorsports’ YouTube channel.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. (August 26, 2021) – CrowdStrike and CrowdStrike Racing will return from the SRO Motorsports America summer break in a big way as the series heads to Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., this weekend for a three-day festival of speed.
Speed is doubly important in everything CrowdStrike does. As one of the world’s foremost cybersecurity providers, CrowdStrike prides itself in not only speedy responses to breaches but also quickly developing protective measures and tools.
At racetracks like Wisconsin’s Road America – and others on the SRO Motorsports America schedule – speed obviously is the name of the game. Drivers must be quick on track, engineers must rapidly develop race strategies and pit crews must execute pit stops and make needed repairs and adjustments in lightning-fast times.
Those qualities will be on full display throughout the Road America event with DXDT Racing, which will feature a strong brand presence from CrowdStrike. Read more.

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.

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.
