Napa, CA – Brandon Kraus was crowned the 2011 Champion of the Nitto Tires United States Touring Car Championship (USTCC) at the annual gala held at Le Mans Karting of Fremont, CA. Kraus managed to win the Driver’s title with four wins in the season with an average finish of 2.4 and won a portion of the $52,000 in prizes. Pete Bovenberg, the defending champion, barely missed the chance to win back to back titles finishing just 27 points behind Kraus. Dave Brown started off the season with a DNF and it did not look like he had a chance. With hard work and perseverance, Brown became arguably the fastest driver at the end of the season scoring his first win of the race at the final race. Brown’s average finishing position was 3.6.
Kraus also won the very prestigious Sparco Championship jacket, provided by Sparco USA which can let everyone know that he is the 2011 USTCC Champion.
