Hopefully Santa will give Mark some good tape to help keep his body on. Brian’s road course win makes him the 3rd different winner in the 3 road course events. Brian Vanbuskirk and Nick Wummer each turned in good runs with not a lot of road course experience. Thanks to Randy for preparing the Life Like cars which I thought were very good for the 1st time running on the road course. Cory and Toby Reinhard continue to collect those Top 5 runs.
