Infragistics Racing – 2016 Season Recap

Kevin Richardson, Ph.D. / Tuesday, November 1, 2016

The weather is turning decidedly more Fall-like here at Infragistics corporate headquarters, and that means it’s time to reflect on the 2016 Infragistics Racing season.


Starting back in March (!), the team visited 4 different tracks on the East Coast (New Jersey, West Virginia and Virginia). In weather that ranged from cold (yes, even West Virginia is cold in March and NJ in October can be downright frosty) to hot (back to West Virginia again in July and August) to monsoon-like rain (thanks Virginia in September) we were out on track, putting in fast laps, keeping in mind that there was still UX work to be done after the checkered flag.

A race to forget at Virginia International Raceway!

On the whole, it was an excellent season that saw Infragistics Racing finish 8th overall (out of 63 racers). I also managed to finish the season without needing a cast, crutches or surgery (which is more than I can say about last season) ;-) The team’s success is largely attributable to the fantastic support provided by Infragistics’ CEO, Dean Guida and the rest of the management team and the 2016 bike design, “XLR8”, Infragistics’ new mobile development conference series, which was worth at least a few extra horsepower compared to the other bikes on the track.


Thanks Infragistics! See you in the Spring!
