X-Factor Racing Returns to Professional Racing with 6-Car Effort in TC America
After another successful season in the books in 2018, X-Factor Racing will return to professional racing in 2019 in TC America in the TCA class. X-Factor Racing, led by Chris Haldeman, is based north of Dallas in Princeton, Texas. The team will field six Honda Performance Development built Honda Civic Si race cars in the seven round championship that spans across the country. The championship challenge will start at X-Factor’s home race in Texas at Circuit of the Americas.
X-Factor Racing’s Chris Haldeman is looking forward to the team’s return to professional racing. “We are really excited to be in TC America in 2019 with these new Honda Civics. They are a great platform and well built by HPD. We have recruited a team of familiar faces and have already begun our testing and development program with our drivers. The balance of youth and experience within the team should lead us to some quick success.”
