Thursday $10K Warm-up

Kicking off with the Thursday 10K warm-up, over 200 entries made their way down the track, and when they got to the quarter finals, there were 4 drivers, with 5 entries total remaining. Tyler Ryan was doubled, Jeff Serra, Trey Dalton, and Travis Leake. There was actually only one competitive pair, as Tyler Ryan had to run himself on the ladder, Trey Dalton had the true bye, so Jeff Serra and Travis Leake were set to duel for the remaining semi final spot. That didn’t take away from ANY excitement. There was a bye to the final on the line between Serra, Leake, and Ryan. With the only pair of competition taking the tree, it was Jeff Serra who set a HIGH bar by letting go .001 and turning on his winlight by being 10 total over Travis Leake’s .016 and above .03 to secure his spot. With the potential bye to the final. There was a CHANCE that Tyler Ryan could steal it from him. All he had to do was be .000. Simple right? Well, that’s what Tyler did. He was .000 on his competition single to steal the bye to the final from Jeff Serra. Setting the stage for Dalton vs Serra at 3 cars.

When the tree dropped in the semi finals, it was once again Jeff Serra with the starting line advantage over his opponent.
