Flatum/A. Short, D. Short/Paine win annual Golf Cart Nationals Event

The team of Lloyd Flatum/Aden Short (Eliminator) and Daniel Short/Don Paine (Run Tuff) were victorious Friday night with wins in one of the most fun events of the year: the Golf Cart Nationals.  Teams of two compete for glory in all of their tow-vehicle madness, with fun times and great runs had by all.


Drivers Lloyd Flatum and Aden Short completed in the final round against Cory and Dave Jackson for bragging rights in the Golf Cart Eliminator.  Flatum/Short downed opponents Amber & Tony Arthur, Madison/Toby/Shelly Payne, Danny & Kris Wargnier, Hannah & Haylie Ouchida, Joe Souza & Gianna Aldrich, and Steve & Sue Glenn to reach the finals.  In that final round, Flatum/Short left with the reaction time advantage (.073 vs .118) and won via a breakout when the Jacksons ran a 17.804 on their 17.92 dial.  Flatum/Short completed their 330′ pass with a 13.050 on the 13.04 dial.


In the Run Tuff category, for second chance competitors, Daniel Short & Don Paine advanced to the finals to take on Dylan Hough and Casey DePeel.  Short/Paine eliminated Chris Hitchcock, Madison/Toby/Shelly Paine, Justin Cooper and Stephanie Frisch, and earned the competition single into the final round.  In the finals, the drivers were a very respectable .015 and .035 lights, with the better reaction and the win going to Short/Paine, running a 12.251 on the 12.19 dial.


Best reaction time of eliminations went to Steve and Sue Glenn with a .004, and best overall package was to Devon and Miriam Hilton with a .041
