Well.. some I know for sure and some I'm guessing.
Know for sure ........................ 'not certain'
Dennis Andrade .................. Andrew Abbott (basically heresay confirmed on discs)
Greg Bruns (DNS after encountering braking problems)
Laura Hayes
Mitchell Ferguson .. until he changed back to drums after qualifying
Gary Kittell
.................................... Jonathan Weisheit (probably)
.................................... Russell Fredericks (in Jonathan's car .. probably)
Rick Shields .. (DNS - left before the race due to personal issues)

Pretty sure that's all. So.. 7 or 9 of 26? either a 4th or a 3rd of the field, depending on Jonathan's cars.
How many finished ?? Dennis Andrade - 12th
Hayes - 14th - after loosing motor running in 4th position- 4 laps down
Gary Kittell - 6 laps down in 15th
Abbott - 17th after loosing motor on 8th lap - but ran in top 4 till then.
So highest running car would be Abbott swapping 1st to 4th until...

Fastest lap by Zack Whitston on drums. Abbott having 2nd fastest lap just over a tenth second slower than Zack.

I THINK :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Andrew Abbott was on Disc, leading the race came in on lap 8 do to a cyl. head stud breakage.

Both of Jonathon cars were on drums.
