The A Main Event was FAST! Great racing from top to bottom with everyone hitting a 27 second fastes lap time. Track record holder Ignacio Martinez beat the field and showed why he is Austin’s track record holder. In his second qualifier he put up a 27.397 to earn the pole position and earn bonus points in the standings. Timmy Palmer battled from several spots back to take 2nd while Chris Splendoria turned in another great performance to finish 3rd and move into 2nd in the overall points standings for the season. Season Points leader Donald Munroe finished 4th.
The B Main had a lot of good racing from the start to the finish. Newcomer to the GP Challenge Jason Young held off Matt Hammock and a charging Phil Hammel to win and receive 36 points in the overall standings.
The C Main was full of excittement and everyone was wondering how these guys didn’t put up faster qualifier times after watching this one. The top 3 finishers were Brian Gilbert, Dale Daugherty and Chase Williamson. GP # 2 was bigger and faster than the last. We expect the momentum to keep on going. Look for next months GP to be run in reverse direction on the the track!! See you all then!
