Mark Scroggs captured his fourth
championship, first in C Street,
overcoming a late charge from
Ken Houseal in a battle of red
fourth-gen ND2 Mazda MX-5s.
Houseal set the early pace
on the East Course in Thursday’s
second heat with a 66.9sec
run. His lead was short-lived
as Scroggs posted a 66. 5 and
Darrin DiSimo a 66. 6 on their
second laps, but Houseal was
right there at 66. 7. Final runs on
day one saw Scroggs improve
by another half second to stand
at 66.054. Neither DiSimo
nor Houseal could improve.
“My first run was not my best
work,” Scroggs said. “I kind of
shot wide a couple of times and
the car was a little bit loose. We
made a little shock change and
the car felt better. I just fixed
the things I knew that I could
fix, and the car seemed to work
a lot better. It was nice having
a clean second run that just
barely had me in the lead so
I could go out on my third run

and see where I could find time.”
On the East Course, Scroggs
opened with a 67.1, but Houseal
was on the attack with a 66. 5
that had a cone attached.
Houseal cleaned up on his
second run, a 66.378 that was
the day’s FTD, while Scroggs
coned away his own 66. 3.
Some first drivers were
showing that there was still
speed to be found on the course.
Houseal entered the final run with
a 0.018sec lead over Scroggs.
Scroggs was early in
the second-driver line, and
found three tenths on his
final run to get his total to
132.873sec. Houseal was one
of the last few drivers out, and
couldn’t improve. He fell just
0.291sec short of the win.
“I did all I could today,”
Houseal said. “I went out there
and just sent it, but the last
run didn’t work out. I made
one mistake on Thursday that
probably cost me four tenths,
and three tenths of that would
be really nice to have today.”
