Tri-Oval Talk:

Close racing as the Top 4 were separated by only 2 laps. A field of 16 racers turned out for the opener. Mark says everything went well with Jodi’s surgery hope for a quick recovery. Donna Bryant turned in some good laps on the Tri-Oval as she continues to improve. Tony Z  just missed on a top 10 finish but did collect a segment win. Finally Mark had another excuse of why he didn’t  run his purple Cup body.
