Thanks to this gentlemen for going out of his way to support us! Just plain Awesome.
Hot Race Tires were all through out the pits, seemed to be a common choice among many racers. And they were all smiles!
Dj Apalaro was able to TQ And win Sedan using Hot Race Tires!
Steve Pitts ran his NTX 1.2 for the first time this race and was out there really looking good on the track. He ran great all through out qualifying, and was able to bump from the C main into the B main.
Melvin Aulston and Mikey Mike had a close race going in the B Main with their WRC GTX's. Melvin started on pole but had an early mishap, which eventually caused him to miss the bump. Mikey ran a consistent race but suffered with some tuning issues.
Overall we had a bunch of fun and we can't wait till the next one. The positive energy is definitely noticeable in all the photos. Even with the weather putting a shortage to qualifying guys were still in a great mood.
