19 racers signed up to race this past Friday, Nov. 27th. Included in the entries was first time racer Jeffry Fox, and the popular return of Mark and Sherri Kanzler.
11 amateurs lined up for their main event, and again Chris Alden would take control of this race early. After building a comfortable 5 lap lead, Chris ran into some trouble in the sixth segment, allowing Jim Alden, and Jim Nelson to take over the top 2 spots on the leader board. Chris rallied hard at the end, but finished about a lap back of his bro. Jim Nelson, Gene Caldwell, and Keith Bare rounded out the top 5.
A full field of 8 experts timed in, and Tom Hansen was fast time at a 4.54. Tom jumped out to the early lead starting on Orange lane, but had Bill Clemans pushing him hard for the top spot. Mark Nelson hung in there all night, eventually finishing in the 3rd spot. Bill had to retire early from the race due to some body damage, allowing Aaron Roed to finish second, a couple laps behind Tom. Tom was really never challenged hard for the top spot in this race, as he led the entire race.
