Hagler Bounces Back for Two Top 5 Finishes at Portlandadmin
Taylor Hagler set out at the TCA America event at Portland International Raceway to master a new track. She was able to put in some good performances in qualifying after working with X-Factor Racing principal Chris Haldeman throughout practice and was looking for even more in qualifying. Unfortunately, a set back in qualifying would only afford her three laps and relegated Taylor to a 12th place starting position for Race 1.
Hagler was able to make great progress and race her way through the field in Race 1. Quick and strategic driving saw Taylor run as high was 4th place before settling for 5th on Saturday’s race. In addition to collecting another Top 5 finish, Taylor was able to grab a 6th place starting position for Race 2.
Race 2 saw Hagler fight at the front of the field throughout Race 2 and earn her second 5th place finish of the weekend. “We had a strong X-Factor Racing Honda Civic SI this weekend at Portland. It was nice to collect two 5th places at a track that was new to me. I’m really looking forward to the next few events and fighting my way up the championship standings!” said Taylor after Race 2.
After a successful weekend at Portland International Raceway, Taylor Hagler sees herself placed 6th in the TC America TCA Driver’s Standings.
