The first 1/8 Open final is about half over, it's currently Ielasi in first, with DJ, Alberto and Roniel in that order close behind.

The racing is SUUUUUPER tight ... there a a bunch of drivers on the lead lap, the opening lap had some drama in the third turn with one of the drivers not making it out on their wheels.

Christian Lopez unfortunately flamed out on the start and didn't get a good start.

This race is close guys, i honestly think this thing is going to be won in the pits, the top 5 guys are running qualifying pace pretty much!

DJ has about a 20 meter lead over Alberto and it looks like Alberto is pushing in the last 8 minutes to close the gap (1.8 seconds) and DJ is 8 seconds behind Ielasi, i mean REALLY pushing he is taking all the corners tight ... that is dangerous here as you heard in some of the interviews getting too close to the walls the marbles suck you in!

Maaaan you all should be here =D.

OMG!!!!!! DJ pushed Paolo over the line!! George Martinez has the video now and i think he is posting. I have it too and will post when i get home but it's CRAZY! The 1/8 open was a race to remember!!!

They went back and forth the pit windows were staggered and Ielasi had a long stop and that hurt him a little and put him into the pack. Picco took advantage and pushed really hard to make Ielasi work for every meter. Man ... that was like watching F1 in canada last year when hamilton passed vettel on the last lap!


The interview with the four direct quals to the a main!

Updates:

Third and last 1/10 final is underway 4 minutes in ... Anthony Schmizzi was in second and pit 9/10's of a second back from the leader! The pack looks pretty well spread out. Drew Q is still out there blazin around the track! Brian Thomas i think just came behind the wall, DJ is out Maxi is out wow lots of attrition this round!


Mike Cruze is trying to take over 3rd from Anthony, oh NO Mike just came back into the pits with damage to his car! Drew is in fourth on the lead lap! Uriah was just brought behind the wall .. looks like all the faster guys have fallen out of this race!



Folks just to keep you updated as to what is happening with the 1/8 open results, there was a protest and it is currently under review! So according to ROAR rules a car must finish under it's own power. While on the face of it quite a simple rule with no need for clarification, well unless you are competing for something! So ... just like in full scale racing some folks called the stewards in the booth and asked for rule clarification in order to finalize who won. That has not been determined yet ... stay tuned !!!



Folks I REALLY have to give TedX props for this race i'm sitting in the pits and i know EVERYTHING that is happening on the track. I'm trying to bring you race coverage and he's making it pretty easy!



The Masters class is now underway! We will wait for DQ's to announce the positions of 1/10 Finals!

Vince just pitted at the 4:44 mark, he's in first! Gave the lead to picco inthe pats he's 1.6 seconds back from picco, Ielasi in third with fourth place.

This is a battle between picco and jackson!

Picco just came in at 3.23 for his final stop, so it's going to be a nail biter to see if vince has enough fuel in the tank, Vince came in and got tapped and the body got twisted now picco is in the lead with 2.6 seconds in the lead he had no filter on the engine so they brough vince in to do work and ielasi jsut spun infront fo the loop 2 minutes left!

Picco is on top!
