Winners Crowned At Perfect Light Invite, Car Club Challenge, Powder Puff, Sport Compacts & Jr’s

It was a great day of racing on Saturday as many different classes were featured. On Saturday, September 22nd, we featured the Perfect Light Invitational, the last Sports Compact race, the last Super Shifter race, the Powder Puff race, the Car Club Challenge race, and the first Jr. Fall E.T. Series race! When all the dust settled Michael Boyd was the winner in the Perfect Light Invitational race after taking out Todd Buckbee in the final. William Breese took the win and the championship as he defeated Jesse Tart in Sports Compact Pro. In Sports Compact Sportsman, Hoppy Hopkins took the win over Arron Mauldin despite losing almost a tenth of a second on the start. Brent Russell took out Alex Schluckebier in the final round of the Super Shifter race. Also, Stephanie Gross was able to take out Lora Keiser in the Powder Puff category. Bruce Riedl fell in the final to Matt Kielman after turning on the red light, in the Car Club Challenge, and Kielman with that win propelled the ‘Silver Mullets’ Club over the ‘442’ Club.

In the first of four Fall Jr Series races, Dustin Day took the win over Carson Wheeler. Haley Skerjanec, after being absent from the wheel for almost 2 years, came back to win her first race over Josh Schmanke, and in the Jr. Tuff Category Casey Ladd took the win over Katie Day.
