Damen Jeffries TT winner Hembolt 2nd
Mark Weyrich Class 1 winner

Interesting note. Kyle Taylor and Dave Westham finished before the jeffries TT in 8 trucks, Pretty impressive..

Wheyrich overalled. Damon had overheating probs. Scheeler/Job kept the heat on Wheyrich most of the day. best battles were between Taylor/Westhem. very close.

Sorry about the bad info Eric, I was going off ORC real time results. Thanks for correcting me... For some reason I thought Jonah got overall...

John,
Jonah did overall bikes wise anyways. I was only making comment on the 4 wheel results. Guess it wasn't Campbells day.

John, our results were as accurate as could be provided on BITD's network.

We post both results by class and overall. You must have only looked at the "by class" results only.

Also, Damen did not have overheating problems. The truck was experiencing a lot of vapor-lock issues. Remember, this truck is carbuerated.

I tell you what, BITD may have to start letting the class 8's start in front of the trophy trucks. No joke though, in Kyle Taylor's last 3 races, he has 3 class wins, but also has a 1st and 2 2nds overall, all beating the TT's. Class 8 consistantly has at least 3 in the top 10. It is not just the quality of TT's showing up either, look at who showed up to Terribles Town, and look at who Taylor and Westhem beat in Tonopah, class 8 is just plain fast, and consistantly fast. These are not just one time deals. All you that think class 8 is a dying breed, think again, BITD always has at least 10 entries, and new ones show up every race, and from what I here Whiplash has the same. Class 8 is faster and more affordable than a pro truck, and in some aspects just as fast as a TT, and quite a bit more affordable, although some of the motors are cranking out 750 horsepower. Just my opinion.
