Scott qualified 2nd and finished with the win. The weekend yielded great points for the team RP: Ken is leading the SM MARRS series with Brian right behind him in 2nd.

We had great weather for the SARRC/MARRS double header at VIR over Mother’s day weekend. The RP team continued their performance from MARRS1 and took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, in MARRS points in the SM race on Saturday. Brian qualified 4th after realizing a problem with his car and switched to the backup car to finish 4th overall and 3rd in MARRS. Tom Bourne started 2nd and got hit on the start going through turn 1 but kept it together to ran a few laps with Ken and the rest of the leaders and lay down a personal best time of 2:20.8. Ken put the car on poll with his best lap to date: 2:20.3 and stayed out in front to finish in 1st. In SSM, Steve Hunt was off to a great first time race at VIR until another car spun in front of him going into Rollercoaster leaving him nowhere to go and ended his race weekend. Kevin Hutchens was also a first timer at VIR in his SRX7 and finished his 2nd race on his novice permit to get signed off on his license. The Sunday race had a crazy start, some of which has been captured on this video.
