Morgan's #88 made a clean pass of #3 for 2nd, but #3 lost it, sliding into #88 spinning both off track in a cloud of dust. Two laps later #88 was black flagged for the dust up and penalized with a 2 minute stop on pit lane. [Check the videos above right to see for yourself. No appeal was made because Morgan had already won the points trophies.] Morgan returned to the course in 5th, finishing in that position.

5:00 to 7:30 pm --Championship Awards Banquet. Driver Mike Morgan has finished FIRST in points for the season. The Powershift Performance Team and Mackvader finished FIRST in points for the season. That's two large trophies plus three more for first in three heat races this weekend. Awesome!

Note: Once again #88 had the fastest lap times on both courses, even beating the ChumpCar sports cars that alternated racing on the same two tracks! Yes, Mackvader had faster lap times than the sports cars on the road course!!!
