We had a pretty intense race this week. Less than 0.9sec separated the top 7 teams in qualifying, on the Pro Track where laps are usually over 40 seconds. Team Gabor was on pole, followed by That Dad, Team Saratov, Nico, and Slug rounding out the top 5 spots.
The start was hectic and a red flag bunched up the field again on lap 3 with That Dad coming into the lead. Different pit stop strategies and another red flag jumbled the field until lap 22 when Nico pulled into the lead and didn’t let go. But a solid lead at the end was erased by two yellow flags which put That Dad on their tail with 8 laps to go. Nico was clearly rattled by the hard-charger behind him but managed to settle down and set fast lap on the second to last lap of the race. Slug put in a great drive to finish a very close 3rd place.
It was great to see a number of Thursday Night drivers make the jump to Tuesday and show their pace.
