Trans-Am Brainerd International Raceway

Doug Peterson wins going away at Brainerd

Building on his win at Mid-Ohio, Doug Peterson wins going away at Brainerd.



Doug Peterson qualified first and led every lap of the race. Amy Ruman got past 2nd place qualifier Simon Gregg on lap 1 and chased Peterson until about halfway.  But Gregg and top Mustang driver Cliff Ebben closed in on Amy which allowed Doug to extend the margin. Doug Peterson seems headed for a second consecutive title even with 3 more races to go. So far the new C7 bodywork does not appear to make a difference for Simon Gregg. Car preparation by Tony Ave and a strong driving performance by Doug proved to be the edge at Brainerd. The 27 car field was about 2/3 of that at the better known and more centrally located Mid-Ohio circuit.


Amy Ruman finished 2nd


Simon Gregg finished 4th


Kerry Hitt had a rough day, finished 23rd
