A race report by Tom Bowman

Jeff went into this race with a 2 point lead in the MASCAR T-Jet championship, Jeff gained a point by taking qualifying...Tom took 2 points back by winning the round robin. That led to a classic A Main battle...Mark Smith and Ronnie Jamerson decided they wanted to play too. At the half way point, Mark had a 1 lap lead on Ronnie, with Jeff another lap back and Tom had a horrible yellow gutter, which caused him to trail by a further 2 laps. The third segment saw Mark and Jeff tied at 77, a lap behind Ronnie and Tom 2 laps down. The final segment was a mad scramble, as over driving came to the fore...Ronnie ran a 27 to cement the win, Tom also got a 27 to get on the same lap as Mark, 18 sections down in third. Jeff finished on yellow with 25, dropping back 1 lap from Tom. Points wise, it was Jeff's poorest T-Jet result, which changed his drop points, so both Tom and Jeff ended with 297 points. Tom won the overall championship 561 points, Mark 549 points in second and Jeff 545 points in third.
