« Return to News
In division two (race seven), favored Captive Audience was an impressive 1:49 winner, leading all the way for Andy Miller. Sent through a quick :26.3 opening split, Miller did not welcome the early move from highly-regarded Pompano invader Prairie Jaguar passing the three eighths, a move that was quickly aborted by his pilot Jim Morrill Jr.
Captive Audience continued through honest fractions of :55 and 1:22.2 before a sparkling :26.3 into the wind closed it out. Scott Rocks sat the pocket throughout and held second with Summer Smackdown third.
Corey Johnson trains the winner for Debbie Element and Mac Nichol of Ontario.
Driver Scott Zeron is loving life at the Meadowlands. For the third consecutive week, Zeron led the Phenoms with three wins and 80 points, bringing his total for the Drivers Challenge to 243. Mike Wilder tallied 49 points in his first try in the challenge and Joe Bongiorno had 48, bringing his overall total to 138. Steve Smith (73), Jim Marohn Jr. (72) and Vincent Ginsburg (70) are battling it out for the 4th and 5th place spots which qualify for the Final.
The Legends fought all the way to the wire with Corey Callahan coming out on top this week with 92 points, followed by Morrill Jr. (88), Campbell (87), Andy Miller (79) and Dave Miller (61). Overall, Jim Morrill Jr. leads The Legends with 246 points going into the fourth week.
