At 9:30 a.m. the Churchill Family made an announcement to the racers and families that at the conclusion of the season, they will be stepping down as coordinators of the program. The Churchill's have enhanced the junior program greatly and will be missed. There was no announcement about a replacement.
Like the ET Bracket Series, the JDRL was in a hurry-up mode. After the one round of Time Trials, the eliminations began. The Junior Sportsman class ran their final with Hayley Becker defeating Ryan Brockman.
In consultation with all the classes, it was determined that the eliminations would be continued on another, to be determined, Bracket raceday.
As cars were coming to the staging lanes, I found Pro ET driver Mario Caponigro sitting on a golf cart. I thought that odd as Pro ET cars were called to the lanes. Mario informed me that due to home obligations, he had to park the car for the rest of the season. Here is Mario crew chiefing the car for his son, Vince, from ETB #3.
