Gaunts wins SCRA thriller at the PAS!

Near capacity crowd saw no less than five drivers (Rickie Gaunt, Mike Kirby, Richard Griffin, Rip Williams and Cory Kruseman) led the main event at one time or another. Kruseman and Williams touched in turn 2 on lap 27 while battling for the lead and both slid out. Kirby dropped a cylinder and dropped out while running 2nd.

Incredible racing for the top six spots throughout the main. Super passing jobs included Gaunt (17th to first), Damion Gardner (13th to 3rd), John Scott (18th to 4th), Mike Spencer (21st to 9th) and Adam Mitchell (22nd to 14th). Charles Davis Jr. started 14th and had moved all the way to 7th before dropping out.

Best heat race of the night was Stinger Chassis heat race number four. Making his first ever non-wing racing appearance at The PAS, Danny Faria Jr. beat Kruseman and Griffin for the win in the Hasebe #2H. In fact, after being passed by the current and three time SCRA Champions, Faria re-passed them and posted the win. Faria is no relation to Speedway Motorcycle racer "Flyin'" Mike Faria.
