    I just heard that the 2013 USRA Div 1 Nats will be hosted by Mid-America Raceway.

    Congrats, and we will look forward to seeing everyone again next year in Downers Grove Illinois.

    top 4 advance to the main

    Beuf had problems in the 1st heat, dropping over 10 laps and in last place. In heat 2 he started coming back and by the end of heat 3 was back up to 3rd, just 1 lap behind MSP in 2nd, with Ulli in the lead.

    In heat 4 Ulli had problems, letting MSP take the lead with Beuf right behind in 2nd. Buef, Ulli, & Shelby battled on the same lap for much of the heat, with Gugu just a few laps behind in 5th, then Lindsay, Marcio, & Emerson. At the end of heat 4 it was MSP, then Shelby moving into 2nd, followed by Beuf and then Gugu, as Ulli dropped back to 6th after more trouble.

    In heat 5 it was MSP, then Shelby & Beuf running neck & neck in 2nd, with Gugu in 4th, with the top 4 pulling away from Lindsay, Ulli, Marcio, & Emerson. At the end of the heat it was now MSP by 5 over Beuf, with Shelby & Gugu tied for 3rd & 4th. Lindsay & Ulli had their own battle, but were 20 laps behind the front pack.

    By the end of heat 6 it was MSP & Beuf out front, then Gugu, with Ulli passing Shelby for 4th, who dropped back with problems.

    Heat 7 saw Beuf complete his climb from last to 1st, followed by MSP, Gugu, & now Shelby clawing his way back into the top 4 with Ulli just 1 lap back.

    In the final heat, Beuf was 6 up on MSP, as they ran away from the field Gugu was in 3rd, with Shelby running him down fast in blue lane, but settling for the 4th move-up just a lap back. Ulli struggled and dropped back in 5th, then Marcio, and Lindsay & Emerson both retired early.

    What a race! Even watching on the webcam was exciting!

    I'm not sure if I can manage to keep up with a play-by-play during the A Semi... but I'll see what I can do...

    top 4 advance to the main

    Very close racing in the first heat. By the end of heat 1 it was Mikael & Brad tied just a lap in front of Forrest & Petr, with Andre only 1 back, then James, John W, then Chase... well, giving chase.

    Heat 2 it was Brad & Mikael duking it out, with Andre & Petr just 2 back. Things tightened up as the top 4 were at one point within a lap or 2. By the end of 2 it was Brad & Andre tied at 188 for the lead, with Mikael 1 lap back at 187, then Petr 184, James 180, Chase 165, Forrest dropping way back at 148, & John W at 128.

    In heat 3 the top 4, Brad, Andre, Mikael, & Petr, went flying out of the gate within a lap of each other. James was about 6 back on Orange, but had his work cut out for him in this close race. By the end of 3 it was Mikael & Petr at 279, with Brad & Andre tied 2 laps back at 277! James in 5th with 272, then Chase 258, Forrest 232, & John 205.

    The 4th heat started and Andre must have had a problem, as he dropped down to 5th, letting James into the top 4. Brad, Mikael & Petr swapped the lead for a while, with James now just a few laps back, and Andre fighting back just a couple behind James. At the end of 4 it was Brad & Mikael 371, Petr 370, James 364, Andre 362, Chase 350, John Waka 284, & Forrest 279.

    Heat 5 Brad & Mikael lap for lap, with Petr 2 back. Andre catches up to tie James just 5 behind Petr. Andre must have hit something, as he dropped back 4 behind James, as James reeled in the top 3. By the end of 5 it was Brad & Mikael still tied at 462, Petr 10 back at 452, James breathing down his beck at 451, then Andre 445, Chase 434, John W 335, & Forrest 302.

    Heat 6 saw James with early trouble, dropping all the way back to 6th. Mikael & Brad stretched their lead over Petr, but attrician starts to take it's toll as Petr finds trouble on black. Now it's Mikael ahead of Brad, then Andre back up to 3rd & Chase in 4th! At the end of 5 it was Mikael 551, Brad 550, Andre 537, Chase 518, Petr 512, James 506, John 406, & Forrest out at 302.

    In the 7th heat, Mikael & Brad continued to run side by side, with Andre 3rd. Petr was flying on yellow, chasing down Chase to get back in the hunt. When the power went off after 7 it was Mikael 644, Brad 641, Andre 628, Petr 609, Chase 508, James 564, John 487, & Forrest retired at 302.

    It ain't over 'till it's over! It's still up in the air as anything can happen!

    With Mikael, Brad & Andre in front, now Petr & Chase battled for that last move-up spot to the main. Andre struggled on red, but was still comfortable in 3rd. In the end, it was Mikael on top with 732, Brad just 1 back at 731, Andre hanging in there with 709 and Petr coming back with 702 for the final move-up. That left Chase to marshal the main just 4 laps back at 698, then John W 573, James 564, and Forrest out early at 302.

    Heat 6




    Tech break... big applause, but couldn't tell what for. Maybe just happy for the break. Petr off in the start of heat 6. Everyone else going good. I heard some big crashes and a few track calls, but couldn't tell who crashed. Mikael lost some ground on the dreaded black lane, while Petr still struggled on blue.
