Day 1 at Gingerman, great race!!

For Immediate Release from http://www.SCCA.com

SCCA Northern Conference Racers Dodge Rain Drops At GingerMan

SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. (July 12, 2014) – Though the sun never quite poked through and light showers fell intermittently through the afternoon, seven race groups ran 30-minute timed races on Saturday at GingerMan Raceway for round seven of the SCCA Northern Conference Majors Tour.

The day began with qualifying for each of the Runoffs-eligible classes and drivers in attendance, giving way to an afternoon of racing.

Highlights included:

Group 1: The afternoon of racing opened with the Production category, along with B-Spec, with Joe Moser pulling his No. 63 Hoosier/King Motorsports/Moser Racing Honda Prelude away from the field for a flag-to-flag win. Moser pushed his orange Honda through traffic with a right rear tire locking up under braking, which got especially treacherous with two laps to go when a light rain started to fall. Moser kept control to the end.

Group 5: Jonathan Start led the way early in the No. 51 Kalin Construction/Hoosier/Carbotech Dodge Viper, but Tom Patton’s No. 50 Red Line Oil/Hoosier Tires Sunbeam Tiger moved around him through turn two on lap 16, then held on for a 1.306-second victory on Saturday in GT-2. Patton set a new track record, besting the existing mark for the second time in as many weeks (including the BFGoodrich Tires Watkins Glen Super Tour).

Start spent the early part of the race with Patton’s Tiger on his tail, but as the tires started to fade in the Viper, was a sitting duck. Patton never created much of a gap, but had enough to get to the finish.

Paul Young (No. 79 Young Racing/Hoosier Tire Ford Probe), Tom Stanford (No. 20 Pote-Stanford Reporting Chevrolet Camaro), and William Moore (No. 33 MSports/Swift/Backstreet/Mom Chevrolet Camaro SS) won GT-3, GT-1, and Touring 2, respectively.

Great race indeed! Taking out a Viper must have given you a great deal of satisfaction.
