Saturday morning opened with a clear but windy day however it did not cause too much drama on the track but it did make conditions a little tricky at times.
The event ran smotthly with only a few minor hold ups and the racing staying prettty much on or slightly ahead of schedule over the two days.
Reece Melenewycz got licenced in the Mustang Top Doorslammer and qualified 3rd in the Pro Comp Motorsport Top Comp field however ...
