In USGT Clayton Young from Maryland came to his first CTS race and gave the Cali locals a run for their money in the main. Juan Aveytia led the entire race while TQ Clayton closed the gap then to drive around Juan’s mistake.

In F1, it was Brandon Clements who showed clutch performance with his R1 Wurks powered Roche Rapide F1 taking TQ honors and Clinching the win. His words were, “I set the car down from practice and kept it the same, didn’t really touch anything just drove it hard…” Congrats to Brandon followed by Steve Burgess in 2nd and Chuck Howell in 3rd.
