The fourth round of Challenge GP 2K13 Season 1 saw Garrett Foss return to the top step of the podium for his 3rd win, and add a bit more breathing room between himself and the other drivers in the championship. We also saw the return of the Glenn brothers, Dana and Jayce as well as RJ Napitupulu who all put in solid drives. As the field headed toward the green flag drivers immediately began scrambling for position it what proved to be a wild first few laps. Napitupulu had the early lead and looked strong out front but was being hounded by Mechain and Foss who were two wide early on through the infield sections of the track. Behind the front 3 there was a battle all its own going on between the Glenn brothers, and young Adrian Corona who was making his return to racing after a 3 month hiatus. Dana, who surprisingly qualified slowest on the night was turning things around in the main and was charging hard. Within the first 5 laps, he had worked his way up from dead last to 3rd methodically working his way past others with passes that were no doubt difficult to pull off cleanly through the chicane after the back stretch. Foss continued to pressure RJ up front and eventually made a pass stick with a run down the front stretch and soon was under fire from Theo Mechain and Glenn as well. Glenn, who wasnt done yet, passed Mechain on lap 6, and Napitupulu on lap 7. 7 laps to go from dead last, to 2nd. Garrett Foss by this point had built a small lead over the field while the others battled, but it would not last long. With just a few laps to go the two up front were nose to tail , one mistake could have cost either their positions, but as the checkers fell it was Garrett Foss taking the win, followed closely by Dana Glenn in 2nd, RJ Napitupulu in 3rd, Theo Mechain in 4th, Jayce Glenn 5th and Adrian Corona 6th.
