Day 1 in the books. Great clean racing and beautiful weather all day.

Spartan Racing comes through for their first win, in their 4 cylinder BMW 318, beating Ghetto Fab'd racing in the final hour when ghetto fab's shifter broke. Ghetto Fabbed came out of the pits 32 seconds ahead with 1.5 hours to go. Spartan kept chipping away at their lead, all the time wondering why the lead car had slowed. None of us knew until after the race that ghetto fab had to run the final hour in 4th gear only.

This was my 3rd race volunteering. Have worked with Sal & Wendy; Mike Morrison, Chris & Brock; and now this time with our west region RD Bill Guzenski and his family, Sandi, Rick and Alex.

The Guzenski crew puts on one helluva good race! Very impressive, especially in their first year. There was one "friendly" protest that was upheld and unfortunately knocked a car off the podium . Both parties acted mature and worked together to correct the issues for tomorrow's race. Off to the post race party to enjoy pizza, compliments of Bill and Sandi. Ciao

Red flag between 11 and noon was for quiet hour. Cars sat on pit road in line. No work except driver comfort items. Just restarted. Raining lightly now. Long track both days

Is the quiet hour new? This never happened in the past

Great race going on for the lead. Bens dad, Dan in the Z car is chasing down BAR as the track is drying. 1 red for quiet hour and 2 more for rain. Hopefully it'll stay clear for the final 2:15 minutes

Final stops done. The leaders, the Z car and BAR pitted 1 Lap apart. Both had flawless stops and resumed their battle just seconds apart. Z car finally made the pass but whoa..... Spartan racing is now in the lead. Will their thrifty 4 cylinder E36 make it to the end without fueling again?
