The Malabar, FL, duo is chased by Daytona Beach's Matt Tiffany, who is just two points behind Gohn, with Bonney Lake, WA, racer Samantha Taylor another six points back in fourth.

Florida veteran racer Red Stauffer rounds out the current top five, with the balance of the current top ten including Miller, Martin, Georgia's Matt Linder, Florida's Frank Beck III and Gavin Thomas.
