Since its debut in 2013, the Aluminos brand has been racing for the top step of the podium. A SuperNationals victory that year helped to solidify the brand. The 2017 season helped to take the chassis to the next level, with focused testing and development. All the effort equated into a number of regional victories and championship, along with solid wins at the SKUSA Pro Tour program. The season concluded with the SKUSA SuperNationals 21 in Las Vegas with one of the largest tents the team has welcomed in the last decade. The highlight was the victory in the S1 Pro division by Billy Musgrave to give the Aluminos brand its second SuperNats triumph.
A year ago, Aluminos and Musgrave Racing Company (MRC) formed a working relationship. The hard work and dedication from both entities paid off. Musgrave tied for fast lap in the qualifying session, and remained at the front of the field with two runner-up results and a win in the heat races to earn the pole position for SuperSunday. From there, Musgrave led all 20 laps of the main event, never putting a wheel wrong, scoring his first SuperNationals S1 victory. Kiwi driver – and first SuperNats winner for Aluminos – Matt Hamilton proved to have the speed as well, posting a sub 1:00 lap time in the Final aboard his Aluminos en route to a fourth place finish. It was his third straight podium in S1 after winning S4 in 2013.
