At 8:54 was the TT of Herbst Followed by Collins TT and class one car 131

At 8:56 was the TT of # 8 Dan Smith followed by class one car 106 Mark Weyhrich .

At 8:58 car 104 followed by TT of Taylor

At 8:59 TT of Post right behind him was the Truggy of the Hurbst and chuck Hovey.
9:00 class one car 1xx ? and then the TT of Scotty.

Some more info...
Still pit B.
Reason for Coyne's 10 minute lead was ( from what I was told ) that as they started group two ( B)
the first group of cars was coming through and Coyne some how got started and the rest of the feild
had to wait.

Ok 9:17 the TT of Dan smith is out with a broken transmission...
101 also has transmission problems ( trany stuck in a gear ) not out of the race yet.....
first class 8 was Dave Westhem followed by 800 Nick Vanderway
First ProTruck was 269 or 296 Steve Olliges
Pflueger into pit B at 9:28 2 tire's changed and one added to rack total time in pit was 42sec.....
At 9xx the first two class 5's through pit B 501 and 500

Taylor made it to main pit with oil leak on the motor and no rear brakes, decided to push on and then the transmission went dead just out of main pit. Yet another transmission to throw in the pile!

I just spoke with Eric Record on his Cell. They finished without any significant problems other than a flat and a fan belt. Came in 2nd in Class 8.

My congratulations to Doherty and Record. Looks like the slump has run it's course!

Big Props to Mike Doherty in class 8. Mike had only recently updated his truck to coilovers and such from the quarter eliptical setup. Hard work pays off, as usual.

128 degrees...I wonder how much gas was wasted from people sitting in the pits with their car running with the AC on! Sounds like it was a good race besides the heat!
