RP held onto their strong points standing after a long and wet weekend at NJMP Lightning for the MARRS6 race which was run by the SJR SCCA.

With a solid points lead in SSM, Scott Brunk took the weekend off to concentrate on the SM battle for points. His double podium weekend, 2nd place finish on Saturday and 1st place on Sunday, keeps him in the lead for points in the MARRS SM series. Ken finished 3rd on Saturday but had trouble in Sunday’s race.

Brian “Rowdy” Price grabbed both the poll position and the win for Saturdays race as well as started 1st in the race on Sunday during which his oil pump died early in the race forcing him to retire with a DNF.

After missing the first half of the year, Kevin Hutchens is back in his SRX7 for his debut in the 2010 season. He had trouble on Saturday racing on dry tires in the rain which put him in a bad starting position for the Sunday race. After a bad start and loosing a few positions, he fought his way through traffic, trying to catch Brian Hair in the lead. Although he was closing in at the rate of 1/2 second a lap, there just wasn’t enough laps to make up the time and he finished 2nd place. You can watch the video in HD here.
