# 4, 50 Paul Fix in championship hunt with win at Brainerd
Coming off a victory at NJMP, Paul Fix made it two in a row at Brainerd putting him squarely in contention with 7 more races on the schedule.
Fix charged from 6th to 2nd on lap 2 but pole-sitter # 36 Cliff Ebben Mustang had the race under control to the very end.
Then on the final lap Ebben’s Mustang began to smoke and slowed down.
# 57 David Pintaric scored another podium followed by # 03 Jim McAleese in 4th.
# 23 Amy Ruman leads in points but a first lap stop to repair power steering damaged by impact with another car placed her 9th at the finish.
Trackowner Jed Copham making a local appearance turned some competitive laps before retiring with mechanical problems in what appears to be ex Rick Dittman GT1
Thanks to Chris Clark for the splendid photos and to Clark Trexler for top notch communications.
