Change in venue brings MARC back to the TajMaHO
Suffield, Connecticut, April 14, 2012 – As you all know this race was originally
scheduled for the Scorpion at TK Motorsports Park in Middletown, NY. Due to moisture damage (cat vomit) to TK’s Buck Scorpion the venue was changed to one with the same layout. Dan DeCosmo stepped up and volunteered to hold the event since TK could not.
First on track was the 902 production class with F1 bodies. Eleven racers amateur and pro were on hand to try and tame the Scorpion. The Pro finishing order was Stez taking the win with 439 laps, John Pileggi finished second with 437, Dan DeCosmo 412, TK 407 and Tom Gray with 403. In Amateur Bruce Gordon was the winner
and 3rd overall with 423, second was Benny Leyro 395, followed by Paul Ryer 383, Tom Smith 368, Vince Tamburo 361 and Dave Muse with 355.
After 2hrs of SS practice and pizza 4 amateurs lined up to do battle. Paul Ryer dominated as he has done all season in amateur with a total of 516, 2nd Benny Leyro 490, 3rd Dave Muse 485 and Vince Tamburo 452.
The Pro’s 1st John Pileggi 539, 2nd Dan DeCosmo 537, 3rd Tom Gray 506 and rounding out the field with mechanical difficulties was TK with 365.
The 10th and final round of the season will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2012 at Durf Hyson’s Thompson Motorsports Park.
