was all that remained in the timed
race. In those two laps, however,
Roberson Clay Russell, the current
SRF3 champion, managed to
hold off the concerted assaults
of Brian Schofield, Scott Rettich,
Mike Miserendino, Tordy Acker,
and Bobby Sak to take the win.
Sunday’s SRF3 start was better,
and the massive field completed
the full 13 laps cleanly. Russell and
Schofield quickly took the point
and proceeded to trade the lead
a number of times. Miserendino,
Russell led out of the corner with
Schofield tucked in close behind.
Up the hill, under the waving
checker, it was Schofield ducking
out of the draft to eke out the
victory by a margin of 0.019sec.
Acker, Rettich, Miserendino, and
Sak followed in a tight group.
The final race group on both
days was for T2, T3, T4, STL, and
STU. Tim Kezman was the overall
and T2 class winner both times.
Aaron Kaplan took second on
each occasion and gave Kezman
a run for his money on Sunday.
Kezman opened up a lead of a
few seconds, but late in the race,
Kaplan markedly closed the gap,
scooting to less than a one-
second gap with only the final
lap to go; Kezman, meanwhile,
found some extra time and pulled
out another second the last time
around. Mark Boden and Brandon
Puk took the next two places,
followed by Max Fedler, fresh from
his high school graduation, in fifth.
Daniel Bender was the double

wins at the June Sprints. Rob Warkocki won G T- 3 both days,
which included a GT- 3 Challenge victory. Mark Boden had his
BMW out in front of the T1 field on Saturday at Road America.
Kevin Fryer got the T4 win on Saturday, and backed it up with a
runner-up finish on Sunday. Hans Peter made the weekend look
easy in FA, winning with a sizeable margin both days. After a
late restart, Roberson Clay Russell ( 31) drove to the SRF3 win on
Saturday over Brian Schofield ( 61). Sunday’s feature race would
see Schofield get the better of Russell to the tune of 0.019sec.
Acker, Rettich, and Sak were closely
bunched behind and ready to strike
should there be a bobble ahead.
Russell and Schofield managed to
pull out a slight advantage over the
battling group behind, with Russell
a tick ahead of Schofield. The last
lap, as expected, was frantic, with
Schofield making a lunge down
the inside into Turn 5, taking the
lead from Russell. But the race was
not over yet, and Russell returned
the favor at Turn 8, reclaiming
the lead. On the last turn, last lap,
