Steve Romak repeats his Saturday performance to take the victory in Race 2!
Steve Romak repeated his Saturday performance and led the final 2018 Masters USA race from flag to flag. After the loss of second gear halfway through the race in his March 741, Martin Lauber had to surrender second place to the hard charging Tim De Silva Shadow DN3.
Ron Maydon had a lonely drive to fourth in his LEC CRP1. After missing Saturday’s race due to ignition issues, Bud Moeller started at the back of the grid and worked his way up to fifth in the drive of the race. Chris Locke upheld Lotus’s honor bringing his Type 77 in sixth after wrestling with a slippery track. Sean Allen had gearbox problems, first issues with fourth gear and three laps from the end second and third gears went missing. Sean felt fortunate to bring the McLaren M30 in seventh. The March 72G of Steve Cook was the last car to finish the full eleven laps. After resolving exhaust header issues earlier in the weekend, Steve was happy to bring the car in eighth.
Finishing 1 lap down were the Shadow DN9 of Charles Warner, Doug Mockett’s Wolf WR8, the Tyrrell 002 of John Deland and Michael Eckstein with his Williams FX3B. Ethan Shippert had a return of his Saturday gremlins and retired the Tyrrell 010 after eight laps. Danny Baker and Nicholas Colyvas both had to miss Sunday’s race.
Today’s race concludes Master USA’s 2018 North American series. The 2019 schedule will be announced soon.
