Several of our own Club Spring Mountain members competed, including Dave Struss, Greg Boehme, George Kurtz, Doug Ramirez, John Thompson, Ron Fletcher, Kelvin Bloom and Greg Gorski.

It was an exciting and memorable weekend for all of the participants. George Kurtz took the SR3 win on the podium Saturday despite some stiff competition and a car that misfired through half the course.
