Factory Five customer JC Krueger and his dad have taken part in the One Lap of America three times from 2009 to 2011. They decided to take 2012 off to build a Type 65 Coupe. While building the Coupe, they saw the schedule for the 2013 OLOA Race and they started remembering gas station food and sleep deprivation.
“The race can be a lot of fun, with the cool tracks you get to drive on, the camaraderie with the other teams, and getting to spend a week with my Dad,” wrote JC.
It wasn’t long before JC and his dad started to prep the Type 65 Coupe for the 2013 One Lap of America and have done a lot of work from October 2012 to now to get the Coupe ready for the event.
