Wings and Things entered the course with just five cars for our Group 3 race. #45 Chuck Moran was the pole sitter in his FC but spun on the first lap of the race, leaving him far behind the rest of the field. While two cars never made it to the end, Moran was able to catch the lead pack and #15 Paul Omichinski in his P2. With just two laps to go, the duo battled back and forth with Omichinski making a pass on the inside of Turn 7 to take the lead for the final time and hold on for the overall win.
The fourth group was one of the largest of the weekend, with 30 competitors in the production and STL/GTL classes. A fairly calm race as all the drivers raced hard and played nice. #63 Craig McHaffie led this large pack out, and stayed in the lead, taking both the green and checker without giving up his position out front.
Unfortunately, that nice quiet race was followed by the big bore group five. This race was just plain messy. The GT cars opted for a split start from the Touring cars, and everything was going fine until the third lap. The #00 T1 car of Miguelangel Aponte-Rios was unfortunately caught up in an incident with the #09 Mustang, leaving him damaged and dropping oil, forcing him to pull off course. The super slippery track was not race safe, so the session went under a Full Course Yellow, and ultimately a Black Flag All to facilitate the necessary clean up. To save race time, the stewards then issued a Red Flag in order to stop the race clock until cars were safe to re-enter.
Once re-started, the group was able to get another 8 or so laps in before the leader, #56 Thomas West spun out at Turn 4. While exiting his vehicle, the flaggers noticed his car catch on fire. Another Full Course Yellow, then the race was simply called and a checker was thrown. After all that, #16 Douglas Valley in his GT1, who started fourth, was granted the overall win for Group 5.
