The leader of the Lake Racer Outboard class was a no show which will cause some leader changes in the weeks to come. Nick Kaye Brought some excitement to the Pro Gas class by having the original owner Jeff Cleinmark run his dr20 against him in his 1/4 master. The unlimited class brought out Darryl Olandese with his blown hydro. Half track the Blower belt let go and sheared all the mounting bolts showing why the rules require the blower to be strapped down.
