Daniels Dominates, Kopp Makes History at Orange County Half-Mile

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 15, 2024) – Dallas Daniels (No. 32 Estenson Racing Yamaha MT-07 DT) was precise to the point of perfection in Saturday night’s blowout win of the Orange County Half-Mile, Round 7 of the 2024 Progressive American Flat Track season, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing.

 

While slippery conditions and continually altering lines at Middletown, New York’s Orange County Fair Speedway kept the world’s elite motorcycle dirt track racers guessing all day long, Mission AFT SuperTwins championship leader Daniels was composed and in control throughout.

 

After sitting atop the leaderboard in practice and qualifying, and then winning his heat and the Mission #2Fast2Tasty Challenge, Daniels merely needed to get off the line clean and then do his thing in the Main. Once he did, the end result was a drama-free 5.293-second margin of victory.

 

Daniels’ second triumph of the season also saw him build upon his Grand National Championship advantage on a what was by contrast a frustratingly off day for nine-time champion Jared Mees (No. 1 Rogers Racing/SDI Racing/Indian Motorcycle FTR750), who was forced to rally just to finish inside the top five.

 

Daniels, who now leads the championship chase 149-133 over Mees, said, “To come here and do what we did all day… These are the days you dream of. It was one of those days when you’re just on, and you feel it no matter what. Man, we’ve been working behind the scenes, and it’s starting to pay off. We put on a clinic, and it feels good. The Estenson Racing Monster Energy Yamaha motorcycle is handling so good. Just a big thanks to everyone. What a day… What a day.”

 

While Mees battled his way forward from outside the top ten, Briar Bauman (No. 3 Rick Ware Racing/KTM/Parts Plus KTM 790 Duke) got away in second and was the only rider who managed to catch even a fleeting glimpse of Daniels’ immediate escape.

 

While unsuccessful in his bid to keep pace, the effort to do so catapulted Bauman into the clear himself where he ultimately took second with more than four seconds to spare.

 

Meanwhile, third place had major ‘Cinderella story’ potential with Billy Ross (No. 29 Mission Foods/Digitale Kawasaki Ninja 650) desperate to fend off Brandon Robinson (No. 44 Mission Roof Systems Indian FTR750) in search of a first career premier-class podium in what was his ‘24 debut after suffering an injury shortly before the season opener.

 

However, that Cinderella story was swapped out for another when the fight for fourth, featuring Mees and Dalton Gauthier (No. 79 Moto Anatomy X Powered by Royal Enfield 650), converged with the scrap over third as the contest neared its conclusion.

 

Gauthier, in just his first race on the Royal Enfield in substitute duty, pulled off a final-corner overtake to steal away third and grab what was instead his first career premier-class podium by an impossibly slim 0.002 seconds. Ross held on for fourth, while Mees pushed Robinson down to sixth by a similarly tight 0.045 seconds at the checkered flag.

 

Positions seventh through ten went to Brandon Price (No. 92 Memphis Shades/Corbin/OTBR Yamaha MT-07), Jarod Vanderkooi (No. 20 JMC Motorsports/Fairway Ford Ohio Indian FTR750), Trevor Brunner (No. 21 Mission Foods/Zanotti Racing Indian FTR750), and Davis Fisher (No. 67 Rackley Racing/Bob Lanphere’s BMC Racing Indian FTR750) in that order.

 

Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER

 

Reigning Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER champion Kody Kopp (No. 1 Rick Ware Racing/Parts Plus KTM 450 SX-F) etched himself yet another prominent position in the history books.

 

Already with a strong claim as most decorated rider the category has ever seen, Kopp furthered his argument by equaling Shayna Texter-Bauman (No. 52 Rick Ware Racing/Parts Plus KTM 450 SX-F) for most career Parts Unlimited AFT Singles wins by scoring his 19th triumph in just his 58th attempt.

 

While Kopp has authored his fair share of runaway wins, #19 ranked among the most lopsided. The Rick Ware Racing star shook free of an early four-rider melee and promptly checked out. Despite cruising to the checkered flag, the Washington native still hit the stripe with more than three-and-a-half seconds in his favor.

 

Kopp said, “I feel like I’m really focused on this sport in general. I want to keep checking off goals and climbing up the list. Huge shout out to my Rick Ware Racing team. This one is huge for sure. And with four weekends in a row racing, it’s good to start it off with a win. We want to keep working towards that end goal of a championship.”

 

Second-ranked Chase Saathoff (No. 88 JPG Motorsports Honda CRF450R) and third-ranked Tom Drane (No. 59 Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F) finished in their championship standing order at the conclusion of a relatively processional affair despite some early fireworks.

 

Trent Lowe (No. 48 American Honda/Mission Foods CRF450R) extended that championship mirror to fourth after tracking down New Yorker Justin Jones (No. 91 J&H Racing Husqvarna FC 450).

 

Even with that disappointment, Jones played a starring role throughout the day and actually looked like the rider beat after winning his heat and the Al Lamb’s Dallas Honda Challenge with style.

 

Jones led the opening two laps and didn’t go away easily after being dispatched by Kopp, countering momentarily and then tussling with the title fighters for the opening half of the race. While Jones wouldn’t earn a second-career win nearly a decade after taking his first, he did give the home state fans plenty to cheer about en route to a top-five result.

 

Behind, Travis Petton IV (No. 82 ECG Racing/A.M Ortega KTM 450 SX-F) came home sixth with Hunter Bauer (No. 24 Vinson Construction/American Harley-Davidson Yamaha YZ450F), Jared Lowe (No. 63 BigR/Little Debbie Racing Honda CRF450R), Tarren Santero (No. 75 Vinson Construction/P&M Motorcycles Honda CRF450R), and Evan Renshaw (No. 265 American Honda/Mission Foods CRF450R) completing the top ten.

 

Kopp continues his march towards an unprecedented third Parts Unlimited AFT Singles title. He now leads by 26 points – more than a full race haul – over second-ranked Saathoff (158-132). Drane is third at 126, followed by Lowe with 108.

2024 Progressive AFT Season Resumes at Orange County Fair Speedway

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 11, 2024) – The 2024 Progressive American Flat Track season, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, resumes with this Father’s Day weekend’s Orange County Half-Mile in Middletown, New York, on Saturday, June 15.

 

The Grand National Championship made its triumphant return to Orange County Fair Speedway last season after being absent from the fabled venue for more than three decades. It proved worth the wait as Mission AFT SuperTwins legend Jared Mees (No. 1 Rogers Racing/SDI Racing/Indian Motorcycle FTR750) made history, becoming the sport’s all-time winningest Half-Miler on that occasion with Briar Bauman (No. 3 Rick Ware Racing/KTM/Parts Plus KTM 790 Duke), Brandon Robinson (No. 44 Mission Roof Systems Indian FTR750), and Dallas Daniels (No. 32 Estenson Racing Yamaha MT-07 DT) all in close contention for the checkered flag.

 

Those same four riders enter this weekend’s rematch under the spotlight, having combined for all six race wins in 2024. And for the first time this season, last year’s primary championship protagonists, Daniels and Mees, stand 1-2 in the points standings.

 

While Daniels holds down the top spot thanks to his trademark podium-caliber consistency, Mees has momentum on his side having garnered two wins in four podiums in his last four outings.

 

Robinson remains right there, only seven points back of Daniels and one off Mees, as he seeks his third win of the young season. Bauman, too, remains within single-race striking distance even while continuing the adaptation to his KTM-powered racebike that was overhauled in the offseason.

 

The torrid pace at the front has forced the remainder of a talent-laden field to raise their game in order to keep pace. They’ve responded well as a collective, with Brandon Price (No. 92 Memphis Shades/Corbin/OTBR Yamaha MT-07) earning a runner-up finish and Jarod Vanderkooi (No. 20 JMC Motorsports/Fairway Ford Ohio Indian FTR750) and Davis Fisher (No. 67 Rackley Racing/Bob Lanphere’s BMC Racing Indian FTR750) each earning multiple top fives.

 

Johnny Lewis (No. 10 Moto Anatomy X Powered by Royal Enfield 650) was one of the standout performers in last year’s Orange County Half-Mile, posting the fastest time in qualifying, winning his heat, and then claiming victory in the Mission #2Fast2Tasty Challenge. Unfortunately, Lewis will be out of action this weekend as he recovers from injury. However, he’ll still be on site and managing the team as the skillful Dalton Gauthier (No. 79 Moto Anatomy X Powered by Royal Enfield 650) steps in to substitute on the official Royal Enfield entry.

 

Another storyline to track is the progress of this year’s impressive crop of rookies – Max Whale (No. 18 Latus Motors Racing/Liqui Moly Harley-Davidson XG750R), Trevor Brunner (No. 21 Mission Foods/Zanotti Racing KTM 790 Duke), Declan Bender (No. 70 GOMR/BriggsAuto.com/Martin Trucking Indian FTR750), and Morgen Mischler (No. 13 Big Red Super Twins/Al Lamb’s Dallas Honda Transalp) – particularly after having some time to refocus and regroup.

 

Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER

 

Last season saw reigning Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER champion Kody Kopp (No. 1 Rick Ware Racing/Parts Plus KTM 450 SX-F) stand victorious at Orange County, flanked by challengers Chase Saathoff (No. 88 JPG Motorsports Honda CRF450R) and Tom Drane (No. 59 Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F) during that night’s podium ceremony.

 

The three return ranked in that same order and as the overwhelming favorites to battle up front once again this weekend.

 

Kopp is well on his way to completely rewriting the class record books and he’ll look to continue that trend this weekend. However, Saathoff and Drane have each shown the capacity to not only push the double defending class champion to the absolute limits, but come out on top on occasion.

 

Similar to the situation in the premier-class, the next group has been put on notice that they need to meet the standard of the top three in order to fight for victory. Riders such as Trent Lowe (No. 48 American Honda/Mission Foods CRF450R), James Ott (No. 19 1st Impressions Race Team Husqvarna FC450), Tarren Santero (No. 75 Vinson Construction/P&M Motorcycles Honda CRF450R), Travis Petton IV (No. 82 ECG Racing/A.M Ortega KTM 450 SX-F), Logan Eisenhard (No. 66 Hannum’s Harley-Davidson KTM 450 SX-F), and Evan Renshaw (No. 265 American Honda/Mission Foods CRF450R) have all either demonstrated the ability or potential to do exactly that, setting the stage for some thrilling scraps from this point forward.

 

There will be plenty to keep spectators entertained off the track as well, including numerous vendors, plenty of food and beverage options, live music, extensive motorcycle parking, and a fireworks display to cap things off at the end of the evening.

 

General Admission Grandstand tickets are just $50 (kids 12 and under $10) or $99 for the Family 4-Pack.

Dalton Gauthier to Race for Royal Enfield at Orange County Half-Mile

Sent on behalf of Royal Enfield 

 

Royal Enfield has named Dalton Gauthier as the replacement rider in the upcoming Orange County Half-Mile in Middletown, New York as Johnny Lewis continues to recover after an injury at the Ventura Half-Mile. Gauthier will be hitting the track at the Orange County Speedway to compete in the sixth Mission AFT SuperTwins event of Progressive American Flat Track season on Saturday, June 15th.

 

A native of Pine Grove, Pennsylvania, Gauthier turned pro in 2015 and is widely regarded as one of the most naturally talented riders in the sport. Nicknamed “Go-Time”, Gauthier is well known for his stunning performance in the 2016 Arizona Half-Mile and is currently tied for third all-time in singles wins.

 

“We’re wishing Johnny a speedy recovery but, in the meantime, we’re stoked for Dalton to step in and get behind the handlebars, ” said Adrian Sellers, Head - Custom & Motorsport at Royal Enfield. “It’s no easy feat to jump into the middle of the season, but there aren’t many racers with Go-Time’s resume. Dalton is a fantastic racer and a true professional. We’re glad to have him on the team.”

 

Lewis, who is Royal Enfield’s lead rider for the Mission AFT SuperTwins class, will manage the team at the Orange County Half-Mile. The founder and owner of Moto Anatomy, Lewis has played an essential role in putting Royal Enfield on the Progressive American Flat Track map, helping to develop, campaign, and win on the marque’s Twins FT motorcycle.

 FORMULA DRIFT

www.formulad.com

Formula DRIFT (also known as Formula D or FD) is a United States-based motorsport drifting series. Formula DRIFT was co-founded by Jim Liaw and Ryan Sage in 2003 as a sister company to Slipstream Global Marketing, the same partnership that introduced D1 Grand Prix to the United States. The new entity would solely own, operate and launch the first official drifting series in North America. Formula DRIFT is not associated with the FIA series of formula racing championships


SHANAHAN WINS ROUND 3 OF 2024 FORMULA DRIFT PRO CHAMPIONSHIP IN ORLANDO

 

Just when it appeared the familiar faces would dominate the 2024 Formula DRIFT PRO Championship, a Rookie won Round 3 in Orlando. Leading the youngest Final Four in series history, could it be the new kids are going to challenge the old guard?

And while Conor Shanahan (Ireland) is a series Rookie, it should be explained he’s the reigning Drift Masters Champion. Despite being only 20 years old, his European experience can’t be underestimated, as he proved all weekend.

 

PRO SEEDING BRACKET

With the Top 24 competition places set by the results of Round 2, positions 25-32 would be determined by competitive tandem runs in the K&N PRO 16 Seeding Bracket on Friday. The top eight finishers would advance to Saturday’s competition heats, while the bottom five could make early dinner plans.

After missing the previous round, Shanahan secured position 25 in his Red Bull / Garagistic E36 BMW by winning the Seeding Bracket. Heading an all-BMW podium, he beat Adam LZ (USA) in the Final. The driver of the LZMFG E36 BMW had himself defeated third place Dmitriy Britskiy in the Never Settle E46 BMW.

Missing from the Seeding Bracket party was reigning Formula DRIFT PROSPEC Champ Ben Hobson (USA) who failed to break out of the Seeding Bracket for the third time in the Pennzoil / BC Racing Mustang RTR Spec 5-FD. It’s been an incredibly frustrating start to Hobson’s season but hopefully he’ll have better luck in Round 4.

Eliminated alongside Hobson were Federico Sceriffo (Italy), Joao Barion (Brazil), Kyle Kohan (USA) and Mike Power (USA).

 

PRO COMPETITION

Having been eliminated from his first heat at the opening round in Long Beach, Shanahan remained an unknown quantity in the Formula DRIFT PRO Championship. Many decorated drivers had failed to leave a mark on the series, so all eyes turned to the usual suspects. 

Spectators got the first hint that it wasn’t going to be business as usual when three-time FD PRO Champion, Fredric Aasbo (Norway) – winner of the previous round – made an uncharacteristic mistake during his One More Time battle with Diego Higa (Brazil). 

After the judges were unable to separate their first runs, Aasbo tapped Higa’s Toyota 86 in Outside Zone 1 (OZ1) and again in Inside Clip 1 (IC1) before spinning off the track. Anything is possible in Formula DRIFT but Aasbo’s early departure sent shockwavs through the crowd. 

Despite the poor finish, Aasbo climbed from fifth to fourth in the Championship standings because a number of his rivals failed to take advantage of his misfortune. However, the gap to the points leader would increase from 30 to 70 points

In another shock result, Simen Olsen (Norway) was knocked out of the Top 16 heats by 14 year-old Hiroya Minowa (Japan) in the Enjuku Racing / Cusco / Jerry Yang Racing Toyota GT86. Having finished second in the first two rounds, the driver of the Feal Suspension Nissan S14.9 also made a rare mistake, joining a plethora of drivers who got lost in the lead driver’s tire smoke during the weekend and transitioned prematurely at IC2.

While remaining second in the title chase, Olsen’s points gap to the lead went from 16 to 44 points.

Olsen’s team leader, Aurimas Bakchis (Lithuania), had his own challenges: overcome an engine fire at the previous round, a family loss, and a second engine blow-up in practice. He also had a scare when his Feal Suspension / GT Radial Nissan S15 lost power in his Top 16 heat against Dylan Hughes (USA). Fortunately, a supercharger hose had blown off and was quickly fixed before Hughes retired with his own steering gremlins.

Bakchis reached the Top 8, where he was defeated by Branden Sorensen (USA) after an intense One More Time (OMT) battle. Placing fifth in Orlando, Bakchis remained third overall and was undoubtedly happy to finally return home after spending weeks in Florida to rebuild the Nissan.

Following Deane’s fire before the Long Beach Round and the Bakchis inferno in Atlanta, everybody was pleased to leave Round 3 without a major conflagration, although a number of cars did experience tire fires, which were quickly extinguished.

Japanese sensation Minowa – the leading 2024 FD PRO Rookie and high school student – proved he’s going to be a major talent in the series. He defeated veteran Alex Robbins (USA) in the Top 32, Championship contender Olsen in the Top 16, and YouTube star LZ in the Top 8.

The teenager ran into an immovable object in the Final 4 when he was paired against geriatric, 32 year-old, three-time FD PRO Champion James Deane (Ireland), driver of the AutoZone Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5-FD – one of the most powerful cars in the paddock. But after their first two runs, the judges threw their hands up and requested OMT. The drivers would need to repeat the runs because there was nothing between them.

On their third run, Minowa lost his bearings in the Mustang's smokescreen and transitioned too early. It was his only mistake of the weekend but proved costly. 

Finishing fourth overall, Minowa leapt from eighth to sixth overall in the 2024 FD PRO Championship and retained his position as leading Rookie.

It was to be an all-Irish Final, with Deane facing off against Shanahan, who was adapting to his first experience on a banked oval track with aplomb. Driving Rome Charpentier’s 2023 FD PRO competition car, Shanahan put the powerful Red Bull / Garagistic E36 BMW to good use in his first heat. Opponent Dan Bukett (USA) was another victim of the Orlando smoke, transitioning early before OZ2 and handing the Irishman the win.

In the Top 16, Taylor Hull (USA) lost a close battle at the wheel of the Comp Cams / Kenda Tire / Wild Willies Chevrolet Corvette. A superior chase run by Shanahan sealed Hull’s fate. 

The same thing happened to Nick Noback (USA) in the Top 8, where the driver of the Kenda Tires / Noback Racing E46 BMW couldn’t find the same precision. 

In yet another all-BMW pairing, Shanahan was awarded a very close decision in his OMT contest against Branden Sorensen (USA) in the US Air Force / Sorensen Motorsports BMW M3. With nothing to separate them on their first runs, it was an incredible transition between the Inside Clips that gave Shanahan the nod. 

The Final against Deane would be no different. The judges and spectators demanded One More Time after their first runs. The speed and precision of each lead run allowed the chase driver to decorate their opponent's door like a speed stripe. However, a mistake by Deane on the fourth run saw him tap the wall in OZ1 before his Ford nudged the BMW and ran off course. Despite some questions as to whether Shanahan’s adjustment had triggered the incident, the judges awarded Rookie Shanahan the win.

With an average age of less than 22 among the top four finishers, you have to wonder if we’re witnessing the beginning of a new dynasty in Formula DRIFT. While Deane extended his lead in the Championship, Shanahan bounced from 25th to 11th place overall as the leading Rookie in Orlando after competing only two rounds. Sorensen in third claimed his best result in FD PRO since joining the Championship in 2021 and soared from 14th to fifth in the title race.

“It was the perfect weekend for me,” Shanahan told us after stepping off the podium. “Winning the seeding bracket yesterday and taking P1 today was special. Second time in America and I’m lost of words. The event was incredible. The level of driving meant I had to work my ass off to reach first place. Branden Sorensen in the Top 4 battle was on a mission and I really had to find something special to beat him. I can’t thank everybody enough, especially the team for ensuring the BMW was reliable. And I want to repeat this at the next round in New Jersey. I want to stay on top of the box all the way to Championship.”

After Round 3, the status quo was maintained with Toyota continuing to lead the 2024 Auto Cup and Nitto heading the Tire Cup.

“Round 3 was perhaps the most compelling event we’ve had this season. And for me personally, it was one of the most fun in my entire career,” said Ryan Sage, President of Formula DRIFT. “I love coming to Orlando. The crowd was amazing and the battles were insane. Orlando Speed World really brings out the best tandem battles because the track has a great flow. And to see Conor Shanahan come from a disappointing event in Long Beach to win the Final against James Deane, his buddy, was an incredible feat. And with Aasbo eliminated early, James has taken a commanding lead in the Championship as we head to the midway point of the season in New Jersey.”

COMPETITION RESULTS FROM ROUND 3 OF 2024 FORMULA DRIFT PRO CHAMPIONSHIP IN ORLANDO 

 

EVENT DETAILS

Date: Saturday, June 1, 2024

Location: Orlando Speed World, Orlando, FL

Event: Formula DRIFT PRO Championship Round 3: Scorched

 

RESULTS FROM FD PRO COMPETITION

1.  Conor Shanahan (Ireland) – Red Bull / Garagistic E36 BMW

2.  James Deane (Ireland) – AutoZone Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5-FD

3.  Branden Sorensen (USA) – US Air Force / Sorensen Motorsports BMW M3

 

NOTES

  • Sunny weather greeted the teams for the Top 32 competition heats before the event finished in darkness, with all team using the required Type S undercar lighting

  • After winning the previous round, Fredric Aasbo (Norway) made an ignominious departure from Orlando after spinning out during a close One More Time battle with Diego Higa (Brazil) in the Top 32 heats. Despite the poor finish, Aasbo climbed from fifth to fourth overall but with a bigger gap to the championship leader

  • Simen Olsen (Norway) was knocked out of the Top 16 heats by 14 year-old Hiroya Minowa (Japan). Olsen remains second in the Championship but is now 44 points from the lead

  • Minowa finished fourth, defeating Adam LZ (USA) in the Top 8 along the way. He lost to Deane in the Top 4 but continues to be the top PRO Championship Rookie, rising from eighth to sixth overall

  • In an all-Irish Final, which went to One More Time, Shanahan was awarded the win after Deane made contact with the wall in Outside Zone 1 before running off the track. The reigning Drift Masters Champion needed to qualify for his place in the competition heats after missing Round 2. Shanahan did so comfortably by winning the Seeding Bracket on Friday. 

  • The Round 3 win propelled Shanahan from 25th to 11th place overall and the leading Rookie driver in Orlando

  • Shanahan defeated 20 year-old Sorensen in an all-BMW Top 4 heat. The American driver claimed third position: his best result in FD PRO since joining the Championship in 2021. The points tally bumped Sorensen from 14th to fifth in the title race

  • With Shanahan and Sorensen both aged 20, Minowa 14 and Deane 32, the average age of the Top 4 finishers was under 22, making it the youngest Top 4 field in Championship history. The question is whether it signifies a changing of the guard

  • After Round 3, the status quo was maintained, with Toyota continuing to lead the 2024 Auto Cup and Nitto heading the Tire Cup

  • Formula DRIFT PRO Round 4 will take place at Englishtown Raceway on June 20-22 along with PROSPEC Round 2. Fans can enjoy the action in person or via the series livestream at youtube.com/Formuladrift

SEEDING BRACKET RESULTS FROM ROUND 3 OF 2024 FORMULA DRIFT PRO CHAMPIONSHIP IN ORLANDO

EVENT DETAILS

Date: Friday, May 31, 2024

Location: Orlando Speed World, Orlando, FL

Event: Formula DRIFT PRO Championship Round 3: Scorched

 

RESULTS FROM FD PRO SEEDING BRACKET

1.   Conor Shanahan (Ireland) – Red Bull / Garagistic E36 BMW

2.   Adam LZ (USA) – LZMFG E36 BMW

3.   Dmitriy Britskiy – Never Settle E46 BMW

 

NOTES

  • The track at Orlando Speed World follows a figure-8 course on the banked oval

  • The track was dry for the K&N PRO Seeding Bracket, which took place in the evening, requiring all FD PRO cars to use Type S undercar lighting

  • With the Top 24 competition places determined by the results from Round 2, positions 25-32 would be decided by competitive tandem runs in the Seeding Bracket. The top eight finishers would advance to Saturday’s competition heats, while the bottom five were eliminated

  • BMW drivers dominated the Seeding Bracket, claiming the top three positions

  • As the winner, Shanahan qualified 25th. The 2023 Drift Masters Champion will meet Dan Burkett (USA) in the Top 32 competition heats tomorrow

  • Shanahan defeated LZ in an incredibly close Seeding Bracket Final, which saw both drivers achieve infeasible proximity to each other’s cars. LZ will be paired with Forrest Wang (USA) in the Top 32

  • Third place Brutskiy will face Matt Field (USA)

  • Reigning Formula DRIFT PROSPEC Champ Ben Hobson (USA) failed to break out of the Seeding Bracket for the third time in his Pennzoil / BC Racing Mustang RTR Spec 5-FD, continuing his incredibly frustrating season 

  • The eliminated drivers were Hobson, Federico Sceriffo (Italy), Joao Barion (Brazil), Kyle Kohan (USA) and Mike Power (USA)
