The Skinny: Ted Christopher seemed to get better with every restart as the race wore one. After some pressure early on from Chris Pasteryak, TC was in control most of the night. On the final green flag run, Kyle James showed some muscle, gaining on Christopher as the laps wound down, but ran out of time to mount a challenge.

 

Winning Quote: “It’s gratifying when you have a car that we built at our place and we put it in victory lane.” -Ted Christopher

 

On the Move: Sam Rameau avoided trouble all night and made the right adjustments to go from starting 20th to finishing third.

 

Biggest Loser: A promising second place starting spot proved not to be enough when a damaged steering box relegated points leader Anthony Nocella to a 13 place finish.
