Howdy Spokes folks! We have crossed the halfway point of the season, and there are great battles brewing in several classes.
In BS, Mat Beck started the season strong, but is under fire from a hard charging Jerry Centanni who is now just a few points behind. Reinaldo Pena is currently in third place, also within striking distance. In HS, Blake Vignaud seems to have a stranglehold on the lead, winning every event this season. Vanessa Lau and Mark Reed are currently in second and third. You have to be named Tom/Thom to usually be in the the conversation for STU, and Thom Hardy is indeed currently leading over Tom Cook. But will Shawn Hale continue to rise and shake up the top of the heap?
The always hotly contested Novice class has a slew of capable drivers vying for the season victory. Charles Gillan currently leads with two second place finishes. But Juan Silguero, Chris Hamilton, Duval Retana, Andy Klein, and Nick Gruendler all have one win. This class will likely (as always) come down to the wire.
X/Pro class is looking to be a two man contest between Vivek Goel and John Hale. Vivek currently has a slim lead on total points, but they are tied when accounting for dropped events, each of them with two victories and two second place finishes.
