SCCA Soloists Battle Rain and Cones in Devens
DEVENS, Mass. (June 12, 2007) -- Heavy rain and lightning on Saturday couldn't dampen the spirits of SCCA Soloists in Devens. Competitors were rewarded with much more pleasant weather on Sunday for the seventh stop on the 2007 Tire Rack® SCCA Solo National Tour.
Christopher I. Carris, of Fishkill, N.Y., was the victor in a large A Stock field. Carris powered his Subaru WRX STi to a 1.404-second win over 13 other competitors thanks to a blistering Sunday run of 55.291 seconds, which was untouchable by the other A Stockers.
Another large crowd could be found in F Stock, where Lynne M Rothney-Kozlak, of Litchfield, Maine, took home the first place trophy in a Red Haus Racing Chevrolet IROC 350, which she shared with her husband Paul who finished fourth.
Cara Ness, of Medfield, Mass., was the class of the field in the Street Touring Xtreme Ladies category, beating out the competition by 7.611 seconds in the Fun Hondas Racing Honda Civic Si. The same car would also take STX honors at the hands of Robert Lapierre, from Sturbridge, Mass.
The cross country trip from Vancouver, Wash., was well worth it for Jerry Jenkins who took the E Stock victory in the Americas Tire/Maynard Racing Mazda Miata.
Cones became a deciding factor in E Prepared where Andrew S. Furlong, of Johnstown, N.Y., beat out Paul Krysiak, of Tolland, Conn., by just 0.017-second. At the wheel of a Volkswagen Rabbit GTI, Furlong had one less cone than Krysiak in the AT&T/Hoosier Tire East Honda Civic.
A similar tale played out in Street Touring S, where Chris Shenfeild, of Dallas, Pa., won the class in a Bridgestone/RedShift Motorsports Honda Civic Si by 0.180-second over Keith P Casey, of Somerset, Mass., who had multiple cone penalties in his RallyDecals.com/Fun Hondas Racing Honda Civic Si.
Saturday's Pace Hot Pursuit Award for the most consistent lap times of the day went to William Goodale, of Milford, Mass., who also won the A Modified class in his Dragon F1. Brian Reeves, of Rochester, N.Y., in D Prepared was the Sunday Pace Hot Pursuit winner. Both Goodale and Reeves are now entered to win a Pace Pursuit® trailer at the end of the season.
