SUNNYVALE, Calif. (Oct. 12, 2021) – CrowdStrike and CrowdStrike Racing are pulling out all the stops for the close of the SRO Motorsports America season and the 2021 finale at Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s road course.
CrowdStrike Racing will be a force on the track with a full complement of racecars across three different SRO categories: Fanatec GT World Challenge America Powered by AWS, Pirelli GT America Powered by AWS and TC America Presented by Skip Barber Racing Schools.
The premier race of the weekend is the eight-hour round of the Intercontinental GT Challenge, bringing together the best manufacturers, drivers and teams for an endurance battle around the 2.439-mile, 14-turn road course inside the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
In addition, CrowdStrike’s robust activation program will ensure maximum exposure and awareness for the brand as it concludes another positive season as a stakeholder in SRO Motorsports America. Read more.
Kevin Boehm and the team behind the No. 9 Honda Civic Type R will be eager to end the season on a high note, following a weekend of highs and lows at Sebring International Raceway last week. Remarkably, Boehm had his first DNF of the season, where the engineer and race car driver have so far earned six podiums and an additional three top-five finishes so far this season. Boehm and DXDT currently stand third in the TC driver and team standings, and still mathematically in the 2021 battle for the championship titles. Read more.
Kevin Boehm’s performance of steady progression throughout the year continued at Sebring International Raceway, starting with him earning pole position in race one for TC America. He ran up front for the majority of race one until a competitor with a more advantageous setup managed to charge through the field from the rear to the front and take the win. In race two, Boehm started from fourth place, and climbed through the pack to race in first, but his race ended early after a damper broke, resulting in his first incomplete race of the season.
"Sebring was an up and down event for me. It started off strong in qualifying with pole position. I led a bunch of laps in race one and eventually fell to the second position, where we finished. I’m really happy with that result, especially since we have struggled in hot races in the past. Race two started off strong as well from fourth. We were leading by the end of the first lap and stayed there for a while, but got passed by a couple of cars. We were racey and had a good chance of moving forward at the end of the race. But we had a mechanical problem on the car and were unable to finish. We’re working on fixing that now and we’ll be ready for Indianapolis." Read more.
Saturday’s TC America Powered by Skip Barber Racing School qualifying session set the grid for the first of two races at Sebring International Raceway.
On a mission to make up points on the TC championship leader, the #9 Honda Civic Type-R of Kevin Boehm with DXDT Racing won pole in the TC class with a time of 2:23.593. Boehm will start alongside the #60 MINI JCW PRO TC of Derek Jones, whose lap time of 2:24.680 placed Jones second in class. Read more.

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.
