Phoenix: Carter repeats CSR, Vollom takes DSR

Report and photo by Lee Stohr

Saturday's race at Phoenix, AZ, started with a little contact in the first turn between DSR drivers Mark Bakhit and Larry Vollum. Both spun, with Friday's third place finisher , Vollum, getting going again at the back of the field.

Larry made a great charge back through the field, finally getting by Kevin Mitz for the DSR win. Kevin had his Cheetah flying, but his top speed wasn't enough for Larry's Stohr. It was believed that Harvey had engine trouble in the race. Wade Carter won CSR again, with Rick Lee not far behind.

On behalf of the sponsors of the PSR Series, I want to thank all 15 drivers who made the trip to Phoenix. With Matt's accident, and the event compressed into one day, we had a challenging start. I think all the Tow Fund checks were distributed at the event. More sponsors are coming forward, and the next race at Thunderhill will be bigger and better!

[Editors note: The second race of the Double National at Phoenix is not part of the PSR Series as previously indicated.]
