Saturday June 6th Race Recap

Saturday June 6th was the final race of the Winter/Spring Series for LMP, and Group 10. Up first was the amateur LMP race that had 4 entries on this 80+ degree day. Mark Nelson would lead start to finish in this race, and quite possibly putting himself at the top of the point standings, as series leader Roman Ruiz was unable to make this months race. Gene Caldwell ran a solid second, Chris Alden 3rd, and Jim M.M. Nelson in 4th. Look for one of these amateurs to have a great qualifying lap and possibly find themselves in the A Main at the American Flat Track Worlds July 17-19.

Expert LMP was up next, and Tim Burgess was TQ at a 4.10. Tim builds some amazing cars, and this month was no different. 8 experts started the race all with the same goal of winning the last race of the series. Bill Clemans would jump out to an early lead, until the 2nd segment when Aaron Roed grabbed the top spot. These 2 racers would run 1st and 2nd the entire race with Bill applying some pressure at the end. Aaron held on to win, Bill finished 2nd, followed by Jim Radford, Dale Olive, and Tim Burgess.

Group 10 cars hit the track with a full field of 8 eager drivers. TQ was Bill Clemans at a 3.68. 3 different racers would lead this race, but when it mattered Jeff Sweeney was at the top. Jeff raced a very clean race, and held off a hard charging Bill Clemans for the win by a car length. Lee Gilbert was 3rd, Aaron Roed 4th, and Ian Guay 5th. Great job Sweendog!!
