MADISON, Ill. - Jim Victor and Pat McGinnis made their 2009 race debuts in fine fashion scoring a second and a third place finish respectively at the SCCA St. Louis Region "Wins" National. The ArmsUp Motorsports team was greeted with extremely cold weather and rain for their three day stint at the Gateway International Raceway. The cold combined with Rain forced the team to skip Saturday's regional to save the equipment for Sunday's national run. McGinnis was able to score a podium finish in his maiden outing with the team in a brand new car. Victor, who scored a win in the final race of last season, picked up right where he left off 2008 with a solid drive to second place capping off a fast opening weekend for the Iowa native.
