New Lap Records Posted at Road America Majors

Round 10 of the Northern Conference SCCA U.S. Majors Tour, part of the SafeRacer Club Racing Program, was held in noticeably cooler conditions than Saturday's sprint races. The result was three new lap records at a track that is no stranger to SCCA Club Racing.
While the traffic was faster at the 4.048-mile, 14-turn road course, the race results were still close in many classes. At one point the skies threatened rain during the scheduled 12-lap feature races, but that threat passed over the facility without affecting the competition.
Group One, made up of the Touring classes, provided close finishes among all three of those classes. In Touring 2, Tim Kezman, of Franksville, Wisconsin, was the winner in his No. 44 Calypso Lemonade/Fall Line Motorsports Porsche 911 by 0.553-second over Matt Slavens. Touring 3, saw J. Patrick Womack, of Burr Ridge, Illinois, win by 0.909-second in his No. 2 Laurel BWM/Hoosier BMW Z4. Justin Hille, of Canfield, Ohio, came out on top of the Spec Miata field. His No. 8 Hilltrux/Roush Mazda Miata crossed the line just 0.523-second ahead of Saturday winner Kyle M. Webb.
