What a great weekend at the track. RP customers won in 5 classes and set 2 new track records in ITA and SSM. Ken Zalner and Scott Brunk won their respective classes of SM and SSM with Scott setting a new track record of 1:28.005 in his class.

Brian Price laid down a 1:25.073 hot lap while winning in ITA. In the same race group, Dave Ade continues to dominate the season in his SRX7. Al Gervais earned the 5th win for RP in his ITS 2nd gen RX7.

Other notable finishes include a 4th place finish for Kevin Hutchens in SRX and a 5th for Greg Gale in his ITA Miata.

Team RP now leads the points in all of the classes it races. Click here for a full summary of the points up to this race in the season. My Laps results can be viewed here and (provisional) SCCA results are here.

Even Bret had the chance to get out race this weekend in the SM class and there was some excitement at turn 10 during the race which almost took both him and Scott out of the action…

Finally, there was a sad goodbye to an SRX7 driver who passed away recently. The Group 5 race held a missing man honor lap for John Bittorf. A video showing the gauntlet of honor at pit-out is available here.
